If you’ve been caught in the Flothemes whirlwind, I feel your confusion and concern. It’s a tough spot, but hey, I’m here to lend a hand and sprinkle some clarity on the situation! With a background in crafting top-notch, SEO-friendly websites, I’m all set to guide you through the maze!
Understanding the Concern
The digital air is buzzing with reactions to Flothemes’ announcement. Flothemes’ sudden shift has left many of you scrambling to figure out the next steps, and I see a flurry of advice flying around from photographers and pseudo-professionals about what Flothemes users should do next. It seems like everyone’s throwing in their two cents, suggesting solutions left and right. It’s almost like a battle now – where to go, what to do next…
But here’s the catch – some of these solutions seem to be pulled out of thin air! It’s a tricky situation, and it’s crucial to tread carefully before making any moves. My main piece of advice? Stick with WordPress. It’s reliable, it’s versatile, and it’s going to be your best bet in maintaining and elevating your online presence amidst all this chaos. I’m here and I will try to help you at my best to navigate through this and ensure your creative journey continues unhindered.
Pixieset and job done?
Flothemes is actively advocating for a transfer to Pixieset, stating:
“Do I have to transfer to Pixieset? This is up to you to decide… As a Flothemes client, you are eligible to receive your first year of Pixieset Website subscription for free, as well as assistance from our team with creating your site.”Flothemes
While the choice is indeed in the users’ hands, I find myself in disagreement with this recommendation. Pixieset may not offer the same level of flexibility and freedom that WordPress does. The potential damage to SEO is not a temporary hiccup as suggested by Flothemes; it could be a perpetual setback! John Mueller, a reputable voice from Google in SEO, has emphasized the impact of changing page layouts on search results, stating:
“Changing the layout of your pages can affect your search results. And it can be a good thing, it can be a bad thing.”John Mueller
Given this, it’s plausible to anticipate significant shifts in Google search results. And I’m putting it out there—you can quote me on this later—because the current discourse seems to be overlooking this crucial aspect, focusing predominantly on design. So, it’s your call whether to migrate to Pixieset or explore other platforms like ShowIt, Squarespace, Wix, ReadyMag, etc. But remember, the ramifications on your SEO could be long-lasting and detrimental! Keep your eyes wide open and consider the broader implications before making a leap.
