At Polar we’re building our clients’ websites with SEO in mind. That’s why using an SEO plugin that’s also Webflow-optimized is a super important part of our workflow.
While Webflow gives you an audit out of the box with features like headings and metadata, or indexing and sitemap, Semflow expands on all that with features such as per-page health score, page keywords, SEO audit dashboard, Google PageSpeed insights and a lot more.
This plugin is a great addition for any Webflow developer who wants to take his SEO skills to the next level.
