The question everyone asks us: Is Wix Good for SEO?

There is no simple yes-or-no answer! It depends on what your needs and goals are with your website. If you’re looking for an easy-to-use site builder that can walk you through the steps for getting verified in Google Search Console, indexed in Google’s search results, and guide you through the basic optimization strategies for your pages, Wix can be a fantastic option for you.  If you have more sophisticated needs when it comes to the scope and scalability of your website and SEO efforts, there may be a more suitable alternative.
