Why Isn’t My Wix Site Showing Up on Google?

Your Content Isn’t Up To Par

Content makes the internet go ’round. High-quality content that’s relevant to your industry will automatically put you in favor with Google’s ranking algorithm. If your website has little copy or if it is not compatible with what’s normal for businesses like yours, your website could be taking a hit in the rankings. Good links go hand in hand with good content. Links from well-known and reliable sites prove that your site is worth linking to, but the opposite applies too. If you’re being linked by known spammers, your rankings can suffer. Good SEO offers a combination of the perfect amount of relevant keyword phrases, high-quality links, and submissions to the right web directories. If your Wix site isn’t showing up where you want it to, step one is to take a look at your content.

There Aren’t Any SEO Tools

Step two is to understand exactly what a Wix site can offer you. It is true that sites which are both mobile and desktop friendly rank higher in Google’s algorithm, but that isn’t the end all be all when it comes to landing on the first page of Google. Wix sites are great looking and can successfully be optimized to rank well for SEO, but the platform doesn’t include any tools to do so. A Wix site is easier to optimize than a GoDaddy site but less customizable than . Wix has articles about learning SEO best practices but no actual tools to help sites rank higher. It relies on the user to become an SEO expert, which is great if you already are, but most business owners don’t have the time to learn the ins and outs of SEO on the side.

The Back End Isn’t Comprehensive

Wix offers an easy way to make great-looking sites. It’s certainly appealing to avoid learning to code, but drag and drop tools can only get you so far when it comes to optimizing your site for SEO. Their site builder tool doesn’t allow users to change templates once they’ve already been chosen, and the back end isn’t easily compatible with what’s necessary to create SEO magic.
