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!  
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?
On the slideshow you will get the option to manage the slides. To edit the images o your slide show, click through the slides and choose slide background. You can choose from your own library of images, WIX’s own and even set it as a colour. Different slides will also have different features within them such as boxes and buttons. In the background settings of the images, always use scale to fit unless you want it otherwise. You can also choose for the slideshow to auto play, how long a slide shows for and other options.
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.
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.
(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.
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.
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 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.
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.

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.
