Hi Glyn, You can indeed keep your domain name. Domain registration is a separate process to site building, so there's no risk of getting one stuck on a platform you don't want to use any more. Wix is great at walking you through the domain transfer process step by step when you sign up. There's an official video guide here if you'd like a sense of how it's done. Hope that's helpful! Ta, Fred
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.
Apart from editing what’s inside your content sections, you can also change the overall designs of the sections themselves. For instance, when we hover the mouse cursor over the “My Treatments” section, a small button pops up in the top left corner labeled “Design.” After clicking on it, a whole new panel shows up with some alternative design styles to choose from:
To add social icons, you can simple use WIX free icons or icons from Google. To get icons from with, simply go to the add element once again and click on social. You will see the many icons including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and many more. Just drag and drop these icons from the social add element to the right part of your page.
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.
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.
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.
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.
