Ranking my first ever website
I have seen this question come up a lot recently and thought I should express my own opinion for someone who has used Wix for many years and worked on hundreds of websites for clients. When I say websites I mean exclusively Wix websites and very many have just been working on improving and boosting their SEO. This is the first website I built many years ago www.mjwembroidery.co.uk and back then as a newbie I was sceptical to how well it would rank in Google. Back then Wix had an older version of the editor and I did everything I could that was recommended to me by Wix. This involved reading any Wix support guidance I could find about SEO and thoroughly investing hours of time in keyword research, competitors and my target market.
I started a blog and continued over the first few months to update content adding text and images when I could. This also involved social media posting, linking my website to social media posts, writing some articles etc. I monitored my progress regularly and within 6 months I was on page one of Google (UK) for the search term "embroidery digitizing". That was my first experience using Wix and I was very happy to see that my research and hard work had paid off.
Now many years later I help other Wix users improve their SEO setup on both new and existing websites. One of the main issues that I see regularly is when someone has built a new Wix website and after it has been published live they do not see it anywhere on Google. Basically I would describe search engines as slow moving and nothing gets updated quickly!
