Overall Satisfaction with Webflow

Webflow is what we use for our website designer and Content Management System. We use it to design and host our marketing website and company blog, allowing us to create a professional-looking website at scale without a lot of the typical headaches—like waiting on developers or needing advanced coding skills.
  • No code website builder
  • Allows for advanced design functionality, without needing to be a designer
  • Dynamic content and collections is great for scalability
  • Built-in technical SEO control is severely lacking
  • Sometimes limited by not allowing me to tweak code (e.g. like the HTML of a blog post)
  • We've been able to roll out a high quality site for a fraction of the cost of developers and designers
A lot more design control and easier to create a custom site, and then also to scale that site going forward. There's a lot about WordPress I miss, though, when it comes to managing a blog—user permissions, SEO control, edit HTML version of posts.

Webflow is great for designing pages and creating a really nice looking website, without needing to be a pro designer. However, trying to scale a company blog for SEO leaves a lot of room for desire. There are various SEO-related shortcomings (like how canonical tags are added to pages) and I also need to add a lot of custom code elements to blog posts to get the desired control. This means adding new posts and getting them looking the way we want takes way more time than it should do. Also doesn't support next-gen images, which is impacting our page speed scores and leaving us behind when it comes to Core Web Vitals update. Finally, the fact that only one person can enter the designer at one time is really annoying. I get that the Editor should be the solution to this, but it's so so so slow and jumpy that this is essentially unusable.
