Wix Website Designer Tips: 301 Redirects

As a Professional Wix Website Designer, one of the newer features of the Wix platform is the 301 Redirect Manager. This tool is found under Settings > SEO (Google) > Manage 301 Redirects. For those who have existing websites on other platforms (such as Wordpress), these 301 Redirects are very important if converting over to a new Wix website design from an older website. 301 Redirects tell Google and other search engines how to find the new coordinating pages on the new Wix website. So, if your old website had a Contact page, like www.website.com/contact, you can set it up to point to the coordinating Contact page on the new Wix website by setting up a 301 Redirect. This will allow Google a

Professional Wix Designer Tips

As a professional Wix Designer, I have come across a lot of tricks for designing and editing in Wix. Here are some tips: 1. Layered Items: If you have an item that you cannot get to be in front or behind another object, just copy the item, cut it / delete it, then paste it. This will help cure any layering issues. 2. Shapes: If you're looking for a cool shape to use as a backdrop or callout, check out Wix's collection of shapes, they're free and easy to insert and customize! To insert, click on the + menu symbol and choose "Shapes & Lines" > "Shape".

Wix is easy, but it's easier with a Wix Pro Designer!

While Wix is the easiest website builder / editor in the business, sometimes clients come to me frustrated that they tried one of the beautiful templates, but it isn't coming out the way they were hoping. We all have our own talents, and for some people, designing isn't one of them. That's where I come in, I love designing Wix website websites, so I can take client direction or even templates if desired, and turn them into a well-designed website. I'll work with the client to edit, adjust and finalize the design and pages until they're 100% happy, and then I offer one-on-one training to show them how easy it is to edit their site once completed. Adding pages, content, images and more is all

Wix for SEO

Wix has all the features needed for proper SEO (Search Engine Optimization), allowing for customized Page Titles, meta tags, alt tags and sitemaps so that your website can be quickly indexed into Google, Bing and other search engines. Content is King when it comes to SEO, so the fact that Wix is so easy to edit, it allows for businesses to feel confident that they can easily add pages, blog posts, and other content quickly and often to their website. The more "fresh" your website content is, the better Google and other search engines see your site as relevant.

Custom Wix Website Design - Better than Wordpress!

I've been a Website Designer for the past 14 years, and in that time I've worked in Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, ExpressionEngine, Volusion and many other Content Management Systems (CMS) for websites. When I discovered that Wix, formerly a Flash-based CMS, had completed updates it's platform to HTML5, I gave it a go. And boy was I amazed! In all the years of being a Website Designer, I have NEVER found a more friendly, easy to use, and fully customizable platform that allows me to design freely without having to involve a ton of development time building out the working site. I can design in Photoshop, then simply build out the client-approved designs in Wix. Wordpress, while a powerful platf
