    I have created many websites and YOLA is the first service provider who just shut down my account with no apparent reason (the websites weren’t political, offensive, pornographic, etc…). My first website with them concerned construction, my second e-commerce, nothing crazy.
    ANd one day i tried to open my pages, nothing.
    I contacted YOLA, they referred me to their support, i emails support many times, i contacted them via their chat… nothing, no answers to emails, no help via chat, no refunds, no explanations, nothing…
    UNBELIEVABLE.

      Very disappointed with web-hosting site since I just found out that it is incompatible for uploading a word press plugin that I was so excited to incorporate into my webpage design! And I spent $ on the plugin software. Not happy at all!

        Hi Debbie,

        Here is a bit more information on how to link your WP site with Yola. I hope this helps and if you have further questions please let me know.

          The issue with the SEO tool is that it doesn’t pick up all the keywords from the site, often missing keywords from ‘newly created’ text boxes, alt tags etc. unless the images are inline in one of the original text boxes, the SEO tool wont count and you will have an inaccurate picture.

          Also lack of focus on the content amount, which is important these days, and it’s easy to trick the SEO tool (tricking yourself) if you don’t know which keywords to track, but that probably goes for any tool.

            I’ve made hundreds of sites in Yola,

            The templates don’t bother me anymore but I’m used to it now, I re-do every site’s design from one of the responsive ones, make them More responsive (looking at margins), unique and you can’t really see any of the prior template when I’m done with them anyway.

            That being said, the best feature here is the number of sites that you can build without having to do back end setup like secondary domains. We have about 100 Yola sites running at any given time.
