Wordpress still reigns supreme but in recent years Wix has been making waves as an easy to use website builder. It positions itself as the number one choice for people with no coding skills who just want a template that’s ready to go and feel more comfortable with the idea of an online drag and drop tool.
However, for a number of reasons Wix is kind of looked down on by some web developers and people working within digital marketing, but you can definitely still rank your Wix website well using tried and tested SEO tactics.
Here, I’ll talk you through how you can use Wix to optimise different aspects of your site, improve your site rankings, and get found on Google.
Optimise page titles & meta descriptions

Once you’ve done keyword research, you can start optimising your page titles - one of the strongest SEO signals in your arsenal.
While meta descriptions don’t necessarily help with your SEO efforts, they can have a great impact on the click-through-rate in search results so are definitely worth paying attention to!
To edit the page titles and meta descriptions on your Wix pages:
Click on ‘Manage Pages’
Click on the 3 dots next to the page you want to edit
Click on ‘SEO (Google)’
Enter your newly optimised page title and meta description in the relevant fields
Save & publish your changes
Write SEO optimised content
You may have heard the sentiment “Content is king” before. It’s a bit overused but really gets the point across. For your site to rank for relevant keywords you need to have relevant and well thought out content running across all pages.
You should include H1 and H2 headings in your site text on all pages. They are heading tags that can support your page title and incorporate variations of your target keywords. If you’re not sure how to use these heading tags, read this great guide from Yoast before you make any changes to your site content.
