A Wordpress to Wix migration is starting to become a reality, as Wix just released a Beta Wordpress Blog Import that allows you to import all your Wordpress blog posts into the new Wix blog. This is a game changer for Wordpress websites who have expansive blogs, as before you would have to manually recreate each post from a Wordpress blog into Wix – there was no way to import posts. But, Wix released a simple Wordpress Blog import feature to us Wix Beta testers to test. I did run into a problem with the import feature not recognizing my Wordpress blog as a Wordpress blog, but I reached out to the Wix Designer Support team and they were able to fix it (they said it had something to do with redirects), and I was able to successfully import my wordpress blog with hundreds of posts to a Wix website! WAHOO!
To fully migrate a Wordpress website to Wix, however, you will still need to build any pages needed, as pages won't import, only blog posts. But, this saves an incredible amount of time if you have a blog with tons of posts in it.
Hats off to Wix for releasing yet another wonderful new feature that I'm sure will be in high use once it gets released to the public! Here's a screenshot below of a Wordpress blog imported into the new Wix blog:
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 will do all the migration and redesign work for you, and then I will train you on how to use the Wix platform to keep your website updated. 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. 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.
