A perfect example would be a photographers portfolio website. They may have different pages for different types of photos such as nature, cars even maybe something small such as street signs. Having a car page would mean, no images of nature should be in the gallery of the car page, unless the photo over laps each category. Then the photo could be an exception.
With the initial questions out of the way, Wix will ask you if you trust the ADI enough to let it build an example website for you, or if you want to build everything by hand. Going with the ADI is a much more efficient approach, especially since you can come back later on and customize every little detail of your site. You’re not stuck with the initial suggestions that Wix gives you.

The basics of SEO are very important to comply with. They help search engines understand your website and what it is about. Using algorithms search engines will then rank your site appropriately to specific searches. Ideally you want your site to be on the first page of a search, which can be very hard. Generally the basics of SEO does not achieve first page ranking as it requires a bit of work and effort to do so.


With WIX, you also get a free domain. The main problem with this domain is that ‘WIX’ will be attached to the address. This is bad for search results and your website, if you want it to be successful. Therefore you would want to buy your own domain an connect it to your website. Names can be expensive, especially premium names. This would involve country codes such as ‘.co.uk’ and ‘.ie’ a lot as well as short-tail keywords such as cars or amazing cars.
(a) – The primary sidebar where you can quickly access the individual areas of your website. If you have a blog or an online store, you’ll see sections to manage your products, orders, blog posts, or bookings there. There are also links to other tools and apps. At the bottom, there’s a link to edit your site, which will land you in the same Wix ADI editor that we used before.
If your template comes with images, these can be changed too. This is what makes Wix the best – you can really make the website your own, one click at a time. Don’t like an image? Click it and switch it out for something you do like. It could be a saved photo from your business, or one of Wix’s free images – there are tons of design possibilities to be explored here.
This will start to set the colour of that part of the page. Just click the right colour for you. To set the background of the rest of your page. Click on the background element. Here you can choose a colour for this or even add an image. To add an image, click on the image button within the background element. You will see many images from WIX, or you can add your own. The WIX images are usually free to use. You can upload an image from here or use one of your already uploaded images. This is how to upload an image for everything.

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.


If you’re using Wix’s free plan, then you won’t be able to use a regular domain name like “www.mysite.com” or “www.mysite.net” (domains like this come with Wix’s paid plans). Instead, your site will follow the format www.yourname.wixsite/yoursite, which is enough to get it up and running. But if you’re going for a more professional look, then we recommend upgrading to a paid plan to secure a more polished domain!

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.
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.

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.
