Is Wix Good for SEO?
Yes, Wix is GREAT for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) There have been many nay-sayers over the years that argue that Wix is bad for SEO, but this is simply untrue. I've had great success with Wix websites (like my own SEO Hero Wix website) performing very well with SEO – this SEO Hero Wix website I created beat out hundreds of competing SEO experts around the world on other platforms who wanted to win Wix's $50K SEO Hero contest!

As I'm a SEO Wix expert, I simply built good content and optimized the site using the SEO tools Wix provides in their platform and the site soared to the top of the Google results. Even brand-new Wix websites seem to perform well and get quickly ranked by Google – which is amazing at it typically takes new domains awhile to trickle into Google's world.
I think the "Wix is bad at SEO" rumor is due to Wix's past SEO limitations, here are some things that used to make Wix bad for SEO, but are no longer true today as they greatly improved the platform:
Wix used to be Flash based, which of course was bad at SEO as Flash content couldn't be read by search engines easily, but that was long ago before 2012. All Wix sites are now built with HTML5, so Flash is a thing of the past.
