First of all, you should know what your website will be about. This is the topic of your website. When starting to build a website WIX actually asks you this question, to suggest themes suitable towards your idea. You should also have an idea of what content is needed for the website. Is the website built on images, if it is a photography blog? Or/and, will you need an about page for example?
To add a blog to your WIX site it is very simple. There is a specific element to add your blog to your site. Depending on your theme. To manage your blog, go to your blog manager and from here you can easily add a new blog post. Titles should be engaging to draw readers in and you usually can set an author. In the body of the blog images and text can be added. You can also add your post into categories, which help to separate blogs into specific folders. This is due to people being interested in different blogs. Tags can also be added, which help with SEO. Once you’re finished creating a blog post, publish the post to your site.
Users can also use search engines such as Google to find images for your site, including social icons. One thing to always remember is copyright. Not every image on Google Images is subject to copyright but most are. Some images may be allowed for non-commercial re-use and others may not be labelled to re-use commercially. Some you may not be allowed to re-edit yourself. You should always watch out for this. On Google you can get around this by clicking on tools and changing the usage rights. This filters images a user can use on their site.
On WIX there is a wonderful SEO tool called SEO Wiz. It makes the basic steps of SEO even easier by offering you suggestions, such as keywords which relate to your website. Once you set your keywords the tool allows you to analyze the keywords. Have a mixture of short-tail and long-tail keywords, as long-tail keywords are easier to rank for. The tool then offers you an SEO plan, which will hopefully start to rank your website.
However, the smart ADI assistant is far more restrictive than Wix Editor. So if you’ve been inspired to really put your stamp on your site – or if you’re simply not happy – you can easily switch to Wix Editor mode whenever you like. Think about it, though, because it’s harder to reverse the process; you’d need to save your last ADI version, then restore it.
However, this lack of creative control can be frustrating. Wix ADI is not nearly as flexible as Wix Editor, which offers smooth drag-and-drop design and easily editable text boxes. So, while you can enjoy simplicity with both Wix tools, the Wix Editor offers more freedom. It also builds more personal sites, thanks to its Premium plan upgrades and wide choice of apps.
Every site needs a section or a page for users to be able to contact the owners/editors of the site or company. This page should contain all the social media links, so that users can contact the company through social media. There should also be a form which users can also use to contact. The form should include many fields such as a means to contact the user back directly whether its a email or phone number, a name and a reason for contacting the company using the form. This could be a message to say something good or it could be a complaint or constructive criticism. All which help the site and company grow in the future.
Once in the navigation, you can choose between many different styles of menus. Once you choose the navigation you would like, WIX will automatically include each of your pages within the navigation bar. To place on your page, just drag and drop. Once on your page, you can fix to the whichever size you would like. Big or small, it is up to you. Also remember to place within the header of the page, as the navigation will then show on each page of your site.
