Pages and Popups

Overview

The Pages & Popups section is a major part of your Website.  

The Pages section allows you to reorder, manage and create new pages in your Website. Organize your Website's widgets by using multiple pages to improve your visitors' experience and increases the chance that they will find the information they need. The Popups section lets you add new popups to your Website.

Popups are a type of small window that appear on a web page. Popups can be set up to appear when clicked on a link or automatically as an action from a personalization rule. Use popups to grab user's attention or provide information without having to change pages. You can access the pages and popups menu by clicking "Pages" on the left menu.

Pages

Adding pages

  1. Click Pages in the left menu.
  2. Click New Page.
  3. Select a page type. Page templates are pre-populated with relevant widgets.
  4. The Page URL page type links the page to another URL instead of creating a new page.
  5. Once you've selected a page type, enter a title for your new page, and an URL if necessary.
  6. Click the Add Page button and start creating your new page.

Reorganizing pages

In the Pages menu, click and drag a page to move it where you want it to go. Dragging a page slightly to the right nests the page as a subpage of the page above.

SEO

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a Website or a web page in a search engine's un-paid search results. Sometimes this is called "natural" or "organic" traffic. From the Site's SEO menu, you can edit the page Title, Description, and Keywords. You can also edit the header HTML for that page only.

Prevent Search Engines from Indexing a Page

For maximum SEO benefits, all pages of your Website are discoverable by search engines. However, if you would like to instruct search engines to not index a certain page, you can do that inside of Page Settings.

  1. Click Pages on the left menu.
  2. Click the settings button for the specific page.
  3. Click SEO.
  4. Click the button to the right of No Index to instruct search engines to not index this specific page. pagesandpopups13_en-US.png

Search engines are now blocked from crawling this page. This action will only affect a single page. You will need to mark this setting for each page you do not want to be indexed.

Popups

Adding a Popup

  1. Click Pages in the left menu.
  2. Click the Popups tab.
  3. Click the New Popup button.
  4. Select a popup type. The popup type pre-populates the popup with widgets.
  5. Once you've selected a popup type, enter a name for your popup
  6. Click Add Popup.

How to Activate a Popup

Unlike a page generated in the navigation automatically, a popup can only be conditioned by being clicked as a link or by using a personalization rule.

Linking to a Popup

There are several widgets that allow you to link to a popup, such as Photo Gallery image links, text and buttons. When editing the links for these widgets, simply click the popup option to bring up the popup selector.

Using Personalization Rules to Condition a Popup

NOTE: Popup conditions only occur ONCE per session.

You can also create a popup using website personalization. Create a personalization rule. In the "action" area, select the popup action.

For more information on Website personalization, see our Personalization Rule article.

Editing A Popup

A popup is very similar to a page. You can add new rows, columns and insert any widget into a popup.

You can adjust the size of the popup by dragging the corner handlebar.

Popup Settings

The popup menu comes with 3 basic settings.

  • Rename - Rename the page in the Editor. NOTE: This does not change the page URL.
  • Duplicate - Creates an exact copy of the popup.
  • Delete - Deletes the popup. This action is irreversible unless you have a backup.

Considerations

Page SEO vs Site SEO

We recommend adding SEO information (Title and Descriptions) on the page level, so each page can have a unique Title and Description. This is more beneficial than having one Title and Description shared across the entire Website.

I'm using a popup via Website personalization but it's not working

Popups created with personalization Conditions only appear once per session. A session is any activity on the Site and remains active until at least 30 - 60 minutes have passed. To see your personalization rule in action, try 1) clearing your cookies and cache, 2) use another browser or 3) wait till the time has expired.
