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.
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.
The one area where you might want to have a deeper look is the Settings menu – accessible from the main sidebar. This is where you can find all the key settings of your site, such as the name, general info, integrations with other tools, payment options, currency, and a lot more. Even if you don’t end up changing anything there, it’s still a good idea to have a look at these options and see what’s available.
Site Settings- Site settings are almost more important than any other part of the website. Without these settings your site won’t be published (If you don’t want a WIX domain) or be able to certain other elements to your site. Here you will find where to connect your sites domain name, if you would like your own. You will also where to add your sites favicon, a professional mailbox, analytics and much more.
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.
The buttons/arrows which users can use to move from slide to slide can be edited also within the settings. These can be edited to match your websites theme. An animation can be set for the slideshow. This is how the slides come into view. Most animations are a bit crazy and swirl into screen whereas some are more professional and come into view gently and appropriately for a professional website. To edit any text on the slideshow, just double click on any text. Buttons can be direct to other pages of the website or other websites, both using a URL/web address.
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.
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!
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.

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.
