Last updated: August 31, 2018
Duda’s website builder enables you to create a responsive website with no need to code. Simply import all of the content from an old site into a beautiful new website template that can be customized by device. All Duda websites not only look great, but follow Google’s SEO best practices and come with loads of business-driving widgets.
Building a website on Weebly is unlike any other alternative website builder. Our drag & drop website builder makes it dead simple to create a powerful, professional website without any technical skills required. Over 6 million people and small businesses have joined Weebly to build their online presence. Content elements (like text, photos, maps, and videos) are added to your website by simply dragging & dropping them into place. Text is edited just like in a word processor. Building your website is done in real time, right from within your web browser.
Duda vs Weebly in our news:
2018 - Weebly brings more e-commerce features to mobile
Website builder Weebly announced a number of new e-commerce features for the Weebly mobile app. Those features include the ability to ship and print labels, to respond to customer questions (via Facebook Messenger, which can be embedded on Weebly sites), to approve customer reviews, to create branded coupon codes and to edit every aspect of your store, including product listing and pricing — all from the app. Much of this functionality already existed on desktop, so the announcement is about moving these capabilities onto smartphones. In a blog post, the company outlined a vision for the mobile phone to become “the new back office.” Thus Weebly gets more mobile-friendly in comparison to Wix
2018 - Weebly launched Photo Studio service
Weebly launched new service - Photo studio - for entrepreneurs who want beautiful, professional product photos for their online store. It works as follows: you ship your product (or products) to Weebly, then Weebly Photo Studio shoots professional product photos for you, you get a link to download product photos, they ship your products back to you. For now Weebly offers 3 professional product photos for $10 per product. The conclusion is that Weebly becomes more suitable for online stores than Jimdo
2018 - Website builder Duda integrates with Q&A service Yext
The industry-leading website builder Duda has integrated with Yext, the leader in Digital Knowledge Management. This integration will simplify the experience of managing an effective digital presence by pulling key business information, such as locations, opening hours, and product offerings, from Yext into Duda and syncing this data across the web. The integration will pull business data directly into the Duda platform to make website builds faster, and keep key SMB business data in sync across their website and the 100+ intelligent services in the Yext Powerlistings Network, including Google, Apple, Facebook, Bing, and Yahoo. In addition, Duda will leverage Yext’s Knowledge Tags to insert Google-friendly schema markup to ensure search engines and other services can read and display in-depth information from websites in search, improving information quality and search experience across the internet. So Duda gets more integrative if compared vs WordPress
2017 - Duda launched new tablet editor to take on Wix
The world is a busy place these days, and people are often working on-the-go. This is especially true of website builders, who aren’t always sitting at their desks when they want to edit and build their customers’ websites. So Duda made some serious improvements to our tablet editor, so that customers could easily build and edit sites, everywhere. The new tablet editor isn’t just a smaller version of the desktop version. It’s a thoughtfully designed adaptation that gives you and your customers the freedom to build and edit sites anywhere, easily and quickly. From your customer’s place of business. On a train. At a coffee shop. At the beach. Wherever you go, you can load images, move widgets, tweak content, check analytics, publish sites, and more. Thereby Duda becomes more mobile-friendly than Wix
2017 - Weebly adds Square integration to take on Squarespace
Square is a great tool for independent businesses, but it used to be difficult to maintain an offline inventory with your Weebly storefront. New Weebly + Square integration allows to process credit cards online or in person and provides more tools to combine your online business with offline sales. Now you can import your products and sync your online and offline inventory and keep them automatically up-to-date, making it easy to share and track products between systems. Payment processing with Square is now available all paid plans, along with Square product import and inventory sync and special offers including a free credit card reader giveaway and lower transaction rates. So we may assume that Weebly becomes better integrated with Square in comparison to Squarespace
2017 - Weebly launches new image editor to stand out over Google Sites
The ability to quickly upload, edit and publish photos from your phone or camera can help your business stand out from the crowd while keeping both new visitors and returning customers engaged. That’s why Weebly built a brand new Image Editor to help you create better imagery for your site and take control of photo editing directly from your browser. The new Image Editor is much faster than the previous version and provides an entirely new set of powerful image editing tools. New Image Editor features include: image cropping, 29 new filters, text on images, undo button and more. Thus Weebly gets better image editor in comparison to Google Sites
2016 - Duda introduced new responsive website builder to take on Squarespace
2016 - Weebly platform combines websites, eCommerce and marketing. Beware Joomla !
The new version Weebly 4 brings a complete platform to help you grow with fully integrated Websites, eCommerce and Marketing. This is a huge upgrade to the entire Weebly experience, with new features to make your site more modern and beautiful, a more powerful eCommerce platform to increase sales, and integrated email marketing and SEO tools to help engage and attract new customers. The new features the Weebly 4 upgrade has to offer include next generation web design, completely rebuilt eCommerce engine, improving the most important features you need to create a successful online store, unique email marketing features focused on engagement and intelligent user interaction. So Weebly is now more functional than Joomla
2016 - Duda Partnered with Let’s Encrypt to provide Free SSL Certificates to strike back at Weebly
Duda is making SSL certificates available to every paid Duda responsive website at no extra cost. What are the benefits? Some of the big players in the web industry have been trying a carrot and stick approach to get webmasters onboard with the whole “secure internet” thing. For example, Google adds an SEO benefit to sites that are encrypted (secured) with an SSL certificate. However, the latest versions of certain browsers are beginning to limit what features an unsecured website can have access to (for more on this, check out this article on Mozilla about an advanced feature called service workers). Thus Duda is now more secure in comparison to Weebly
2016 - Website builder Weebly adds marketing emails
Website building service for small businesses Weebly launched Promote, a platform for building marketing emails. Email marketing is the number two concern for small businesses behind their website,” CEO David Rusenko said. However, more than half of Weebly users aren’t taking advantage of existing email marketing tools, because “it’s confusing and hard for them. So Promote allows them to build those emails using the same drag-and-drop tools they use to build their websites. Weebly Promote is currently limited to users of the existing Weebly platform, but the plan is to make it available to everyone soon. Pricing starts at $8 a month.
