Curious about the website builder and host Weebly, I just did a news search for it to see if it was making any headlines. What I noticed was that underneath stories about the company itself, there were lots of articles in which Weebly sites were mentioned. The list went for several pages.
I did a similar search for Weebly's main competitor, Yola. It had several mentions, but not nearly as many as Weebly. Webnode had a similar number, with most of its mentions in news outlets from non English speaking nations.
No doubt many of these mentions came as a result of the website owners sending in press releases to the various outlets. Still, it showed just how popular these free website builders have become.
