In May 2019, Wix just released a Beta Wordpress Blog Import so you can import blog posts from a Wordpress blog into the Wix blog! WOO HOO! Finally! As a Wix Website Designer, this has been on my wishlist ever since I started using Wix about 5-6 years ago. This has been a feature request for many years, and is now just released into Beta (I don't believe it has been released to the public yet, but it should be soon!)
I just tested it with my Good Environmental News blog, which I've had for over 10 years – and it has hundreds of posts. I always wanted to bring it into Wix from Wordpress but never had the time to manually recreate all the posts. Well, now I was able to do that in a matter of minutes. Granted, if I want to retain it's SEO, I will need to setup 301 redirects for it as the URL structure is slightly different, this saves hours upon hours of work having to manually copy and paste and recreate each post. Thank you Wix!
Above is a quick demo video on how the Wix Wordpress Blog Import works. Below is a screenshot of my Wordpress blog that I imported into Wix. I'm thrilled that Wix is releasing this amazing feature, which has been on my wishlist for years, ever since I started working in Wix!
Want to switch from Wordpress to Wix?If you have a Wordpress website for your business and you'd like to switch to Wix, I specialize in migrating Wordpress websites to the Wix platform, as well as improving or redesigning the websites in the process. Wix sites can look exactly like Wordpress sites, so we can carry over any elements that you like and rebuild them in the easy-to-edit Wix website builder.
I can help do all of the migration and redesign work for you to port your Wordpress website over into the Wix system, and then I will train you on how to use the Wix platform to keep your website updated. All of my clients love Wix as it's so much easier to use than Wordpress, and it doesn't need regular updates and security fixes as Wordpress requires. Especially with a little training - I can show you all sorts of tricks to make your Wix website editing experience way easier. Wix is also easier to add new pages, make design changes, add photo galleries, add videos, and so much more! I will show you how you can easily make any edits and updates to the website. If it's easier to edit your website, then you're more likely to keep it updated, which is better for SEO (search engine optimization). I'm also a SEO Consultant, so I can help make the migration from Wordpress to Wix go smoothly so you won't lose any of your ranking in search engines. I will setup 301 redirects, setup your SEO Meta Tags and Alt Image tags so your website performs at it's best in searches. Lastly, I will train you on how to continue to build your own website SEO and content to help your website get found online.Contact me today for a free estimate »
