Wix SEO in 2022
I always thought Wix was great at SEO (search engine optimization)... I love seeing more and more reports coming out to see that it's true. It's all in how you use Wix! It has all the tools to excel at SEO, in fact, all of my Wix websites, when properly optimized for SEO, soar quickly to the top of rankings – seemingly faster than Wordpress and other platforms.
Read more below.... Wix got a lot of positive SEO reviews in 2021, and Wix SEO will continue to excel in 2022:
John Mueller of Google recently said about Wix SEO:
“Wix is fine for SEO. A few years back it was pretty bad in terms of SEO, but they’ve made fantastic progress, and are now a fine platform for businesses. The reputation from back then lingers on, but don’t be swayed by it. What they’ve done in recent years is really good stuff, including making it trivial to have a really fast site (as you see in the Lighthouse scores — admittedly, speed is only a tiny part of SEO). If Wix works for them, and they don’t need more, there’s no reason to switch.”
Here's another quote from Mueller from awhile back:
WIX websites work fine in search. There are a lot of different setups for new websites. I wouldn't focus too much on a single provider, but rather think about the bigger picture: which will make it easiest for you to maintain your site (adding / changing content)? If you're getting help from others for your site, is there one that they have experience in, which might make it easier / cheaper? Which one offers the features that you think you'll need in the mid-term? There are probably a few options that could work for you, so maybe it makes sense to just try some of them out and see which one works best for you -- websites are websites for Google :).
Here's a chart that shows Wix as #1 when it comes to SEO scores:
