2018 Wix Review by a Website Designer

Check out this 2018 Wix Review from New York Times' thewirecutter.com, they say Wix is the best website builder for small businesses! I agree, Wix really is the best website editor and builder! My clients love it, as do I. Hence the name "Picklewix" :) I love making homegrown pickles + I love working in Wix, so my husband nicknamed me Picklewix many years ago. I'm so glad to no longer be having to deal very often with other clunky, time-consuming platforms like Wordpress. I still work on these other platforms for some of my clients, but every time I do, I'm thinking, "Why can't this be as easy as Wix?" I feel like Wordpress and Shopify, Squarespace and other editors are in the dark age of

SEO Website Design Company

As a website designer for over 15 years, I have worked with some of the top SEO (search engine optimization) companies. I can't say I love any of them, a lot of SEO companies require contracts and high monthly costs but don't seem to do much other than give my clients SEO reports. I now recommend my clients do their own SEO, rather than paying for SEO companies, as they often don't do it the honest, long-term way. What way is that? Simply adding good content on your website, and optimizing it to be found. I work with many of my clients to come up with and create new SEO content to help them get found online. Here are a few examples of websites I've designed and have helped with SEO: www.pron

SEO Hero Tip: Use Google+

While Google+ may seem dead to most of us, it's still a VERY useful term for SEO! Why? Here are my top reasons: When you post links to Google+, your pages get indexed immediately. So it's basically like telling Google personally, "Hey, I just put up a new page, can you index this new page for me now?" Uploading images, links, information and tips to Google+ will just plant more seeds into the Google world for people to find. You can also build themed Google+ Collections so you can post to different collections that could be found by other Google+ users if looking for specific topics. Below is an example of a Google+ page that I help post to for one of my clients, Sandiaseed.com. I post lin

SEO Hero Tip: Spin a Web of Content

If you want to be your own SEO Hero for your website, then spin a web of content! By this, I mean build more and more content over time, just like a spider spins her web. In this video above, the spider diligently works to add threads around the entire web. You can use this same philosophy for SEO for your website, you want to add lots of threads of content everywhere. Add content to your blog, or add new pages that explain commonly asked questions, anything that is relevant to your business. Basically, think about what people want to find you for in search engines, then write about it! Once you've created new threads of great original content on your website, the next step is to thread it t

Infographic Website Design

Infographics for website designs can be quite useful, in fact, your whole homepage or subpage on your website could consist of an infographic design! As a professional Infographic Designer and Website Designer, I often design custom infographics to be used on websites to provide viewers with a visual representation of the information on products or services. These days, website designs can be very "tall" and can scroll – so infographics are a great way to show visual content that the user can scroll down to learn more. Infographic Website Design should include lots of visual icons and images to illustrate statistics, information, processes or facts. Below are some examples of Infographic Web

Wix Designer Tip: Add Mobile Menu on Page with No Header

As a Wix Website Designer, I often run into common issues with Wix – but, as I always say, there's almost always a good work-around to missing features. One common Wix designer problem is when we design homepages in Wix that do not use the header/footer layout, the mobile pages do not have a menu option – even if you have a menu on the desktop version of the page. I often design homepages without header/footers so that I can design a more beautiful full screened homepage and have control over where the menu is placed. Then, on the subpages I use the page layout that includes the header and footer with a more standardized menu template so that I can build subpages quickly and make header/foot
