By this point, you’ve customized your site’s template and added some solid images and pages. But if your site still feels a little plain, there’s no need to worry – adding some exciting bells and whistles is a lot easier than it seems. Wix’s App Market has over 250 amazing applications to boost your site, and they cover everything from restaurant orders to interactive quizzes. The apps don’t just look great, either – they also provide your website with the modern interface necessary to stay competitive.
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.
Once you know all what you can do with WIX, it is time to start your build. One of the first parts of your website design should be the page design. To do this, all you need to do is double click the page you’re working on and the page design box should appear. If it doesn’t click on the ‘Change Page Design’ bubble. It should automatically show instead.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
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!

Just like the WIX editor, you can change and customise anything on your site. You will probably find some changes you would like to make and ADI is perfect as it allows you too. The only difference is, if you want to change a part of the site, all the information shows in a column to the left of the screen. This can make your use of the ADI much quicker and get your website published as quick as a possible.

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.
