Wix Website Error: Too Many Redirects – Caused by Cloudflare

As a Wix Web Designer, I like to share solutions to common problems that I encounter. Here's a doozy that we just figured out regarding Wix and Cloudflare: This week (Feb 25, 2019), upon the release of Wix Turbo, I had a client who's Wix website started getting a "Too Many Redirects" error. Their website hosting is with Wix, but the Yahoo registered domain had it's Domain Name Servers being pointed through Cloudflare by their IT department. Their IT department uses Cloudflare to provide content delivery network services, DDoS mitigation, Internet security and distributed domain name server services. Cloudflare's services sit between the visitor and the Cloudflare user's hosting provider, act

Wix SEO: How to Optimize Pages & Images in Wix

Here I quickly walk a client through basic on-site Wix SEO tips on how to optimize images and the page SEO meta tags. Optimizing your images with Alt Text tells Google what the image is, and helps further identify the page for the keywords you want to be found for. Each image should have a unique description, do not duplicate or stuff keywords, rather, be natural about. If I were to focus on a page that was all about being an icon designer, I would name the image "icon designer" and the second image I could name "icon Design" the third image could be "Icon Design for the Creative Process", etc etc. Each image title should be unique, just as each image is unique, but they can be variations o

SEO Hero: SEO Packages

I've been working as a Website Designer for over 15 years, and I've worked with some of the "top" SEO companies over the years with my clients. About five years ago, I decided that I didn't really like what these expensive SEO companies were offering to my clients: they would always force my clients into year-long contracts, and from what I could see, they weren't actually doing any on-website SEO that is crucial for long-term success. Instead, they focused on secretive "link building" where they supposedly would build inbound links to the website on their own "network" of blogs. They wouldn't even share them with us! In my opinion, if you are hiding anything or not proud of the link buildi

Engraving Effect with Photoshop

Here is how to create an Engraving Effect with Photoshop! As a Graphic Designer and Website Designer, I often have designs that would work well with "engraved" graphics.

Here are the basic steps: Download the Actions folder in a Zip

Is Wix Good for Lawyer Websites & SEO?

I've worked with big SEO companies across all platforms over the years, so I am quite versed in SEO and offer SEO Pro Packages to my clients. Since Wix is one of my most recommended platforms for 95% of my clients, I often get this question: Is Wix is good at SEO as Wordpress? Is Wix good for Lawyer Websites? Is Wix good for Big Companies? Short answer: Yes – Wix is just as good as Wordpress for SEO! Is Wix is good at SEO? It really doesn’t matter what platform you use for SEO, it's more about how you use the platform. Getting to

Wix and SEO

Wix is great at SEO for 2019! As a Denver Website Designer who often works on Wix websites as well as Wordpress websites, I've been working to dispel the myths around Wix being bad for SEO (search engine optimization). All of my own Wix websites and my clients' Wix websites do very well with SEO and getting found on Google and other search engines. The Wix platform has all the tools you need to build a beautiful website with great SEO. Even Google says Wix is good for SEO, as SEO is not so much about the platform that matters, it's all about how you use your site to build good content to get found! I say: if Wix makes it easier for you to keep your website updated and add content, then i
