All community websites are designed to be search engine friendly and employ best practices for search engine optimization (SEO). These include general search engine friendliness, descriptive page URLs, 100% mobile-optimized designs, complete HTTPS coverage, and fast website performance.

When will my website show up on search engines?

Websites generally take a few weeks to show up in search engines, since Google and other search engines take some time to discover and index newly created websites. Once it does list in search results, it can often take a few more months before the community website begins ranking highly. Website age is important in determining a website's reputation, which affects search engine rankings. 

To speed this process along, we recommend linking to your community website from other sites. Think about adding links to your community website from any social media pages, your management company's website, or local government websites. For more tips on how to help your website rank higher in search engine results, we recommend reviewing the following article: Create a domain your community will love
