Confluence Cloud SEO Requirement

Shannon December 17, 2018

We are planning to implement Jira Service Desk (Cloud) with the adjoined Confluence Knowledge Base (Cloud). One of our requirements for Knowledge Base is that the articles are publicly available and rank in the top 5 of Google results as our customer base currently uses Google to find answers up to 90% of the time.

I would like some level of confidence that we'll be able to get our articles to rank in the top five, so I'm looking for other's who've used Confluence Cloud to confirm they've had success. My concern comes from struggles I've seen with Confluence server products, struggles that have been mitigated with plugins for server that aren't available for the cloud product.

If you are ranking your sites in google SERP then one of important thing is UI/UX . After that you can do  deeply keywords research and make a comprehensive content with hard and soft silo structure.

Carrying out Jira Administration Work Area (Cloud) with a bordered Juncture Information Base (Cloud) is a decent step towards giving proficient client service. Nonetheless, accomplishing the highest-level outcomes on Google is affected by different elements beyond the actual stage. While Conjunction Cloud can assist with upgrading your substance, it's critical to consider extra steps toward improving your web search tool rankings.

Content streamlining: Guarantee your articles are elegantly composed, significant, and organized with proper headings, meta labels, and catchphrases. Utilize applicable catchphrases all through your articles to work on their perceivability to web search tools.

Interior connecting: Make areas of strength for a connecting structure inside your Intersection Information Base. Connect related articles together, utilizing expressive anchor text, to upgrade web crawler creeping and further develop the generally speaking Web optimization of your insight base.

Outside connecting: I intend to have other respectable sites connect as far as anyone is concerned. Building quality backlinks can support your web index rankings. Consider connecting with industry powerhouses, accomplices, or clients to connect them to your articles.

Client commitment: Urge clients to give input, remarks, or evaluations on your articles. Positive client commitment signals to web search tools that your substance is significant and solid, possibly working on its positioning.

Web-based entertainment advancement: Offer your articles via online entertainment stages to build their perceivability and direct people as far as anyone is concerned. Draw in your crowd via web-based entertainment to create a local area around your substance.

It's essential to take note that web index rankings are impacted by different variables, including rivalry, search calculations, and client conduct. While Conjunction Cloud can lay a strong foundation as far as anyone is concerned, progress in positioning within the main five outcomes requires consistent exertion, improvement, and observation. Also, looking for bits of knowledge from other people who have utilized Conjunction Cloud for their insight bases can give accommodating viewpoints on their encounters and techniques for accomplishing web index perceivability.

Looking forward to answers here. We have not done some deep exercise on SEO but so far we are struggling to get any kind of results. We have the same need for our documentation and KB that is often through google search.

We have an SEO consultant who has said that the fact that we can't domain the knowledge base as our .com that we will really struggle to get the articles to rank unless we are able to create enough "link juice" by linking to individual KB articles from our domain, which we plan to do now. We won't know if it works until we actually launch it, but it's not a desired solution at all. 

I would love to hear how others have succeeded or struggled to accomplish this.

We had the same problem too when moving from Help & Manual to Confluence. Confluence is great (and relatively cheap) for collaboration but content is hard to find using Google.

We solved it great using a combination of Cloudfront and Scroll Viewport (an add-on). Viewport publishes it to a site they host, which is nice, but not good enough. After that we added AWS Cloudfront in front of it mapping the host name to one domain of our own (in this case

With cloudfront we have replaced some css and background images too to make it a little nicer. Google rankings have significantly improved (even very specific texts could not be found, but are now on top). Google page speed increased from Confluence itself 18/29, over Scroll Viewport 47/86 to 60/91 for the same content. Some performance improvements could not be made easily; there remains some work to be done by Scroll Viewport.
