Wix Takes An SEO Hit
60 million Wix users take a hit as Google removes Wix sites from Google Index.
If you happen to be one of the millions who use Wix – an online website platform and builder tool – to create your business or personal website, you’ve most likely noticed a serious decline in traffic. This downward trend is due to that fact that Wix-based websites have recently been removed from the Google Index.
If you have yet to be impacted by the changes it would be worth checking your analytics or running a quick Google search. Thousands of Wix clients have taken to the web to vent frustrations towards the free service. Websites that are not featured in a Google search are about as useful as a 404 message. Downtime and unavailability affect sales, and for businesses who use Wix websites to sell products or services this can be seriously damaging.
This news doesn’t have to be entirely negative though. We can take this unfortunate event as a learning experience. Much like the saying “if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is”, free services sound like a great idea until you realize that you are completely dependent on their support to conduct your business.
For non-paying customers, the level of service and support can be less than stellar, just as sharing available resources with 60 million other clients can really hold up your site. If your site is causing you to lose business and reputation, far from having a free service, you are actually paying for something very damaging.
If you happen to be one of the many sites affected by this loss of search engine potential, we have a solution for all your internet woes. You may want to consider protecting your business and reputation with a little bit of investment. Many small business owners don’t realize that they can create an amazing website with only a few dollars every month that features a unique domain, and email addresses tied to that domain.
By using a content management system (CMS) like WordPress and our no-hassle hosting, you can have an attractive and fully functioning website in no time. WordPress can be inexpensive, and contains an easy website builder that requires no coding knowledge or formal training, so you can forget about needing to hire a professional developer.

WordPress is one of the most widely used CMS available. Because so many millions of people use WordPress, security issues can arise here and there.
