The Convenience of the Interface:
Wix is thought through to the smallest detail, and offers functionality that allows you to
implement tasks with a few clicks without having to have complex programming skills.
Initial Cost Saving
A site on Wix can be free initially. As with many other website building applications, a free
trial is provided. To get this you will need to build on the Wix subdomain, not on your own
domain, which will allow Wix to include an advertising banner/link.

Disadvantages of creating website on Wix:
- Functionality and Site Editing
Site editing is limited to what you can do with the toolbar. It’s simply not possible to refine
the site in a more technical manner.

Can I promote my site made on Wix to Google?
Promoting the site in Google Search will be difficult. An SEO website built on Wix is
problematic. You can register the site in directories and promote it through Google AdWords.
You can start to optimize it, write meta tags, correct spelling of the texts and check all links,
but basically it will not improve results.
Why Sites Created with Wix Designer Do Not Advance
Google Bots are written to prefer sites using conventional and high-quality software. Some
free-of- charge packages, such as WordPress, Modx, OpenCart, are treated better, but these
are all on paid hosting. Sadly it is not so for Wix Designer.
Relevant Complex Issues Effecting Search Engine Ratings
The layout of the pages of sites executed on the Wix Designer carries a lot of extra garbage,
i.e. the universal blocks of patterns structured within the templates are convoluted and
awkward. This slows down the bots’ progress through the site, such restriction automatically
barring promotion of the Site.
As a result you calculate how much money you pay for Wix Designer and compare it to what you
would pay for the creation of a site on a CMS such as WordPress, you will get similar
amounts. Of course the relevant differences are that in the second case the site will belong to
you, and you will easily be able to optimise it in regard to Search Engine Rating
