What is Wix’s SEO Philosophy?

When it comes to SEO, Wix has two priorities in mind:

  1. Protecting beginner users from making mistakes bearing costly consequences (= drop in Google rankings)
  2. Allowing advanced users to customise ‘as much as possible’

Structured Data and Wix

Wix beginner users can avail of structured data added by default to product pages, bookings, events and more.

Wix advanced users can customise and add custum structured data to static web pages such as homepage, about page, etc.

At present, Wix only supports JSON-LD microdata, which is the one used by Google.

Wix also supports the WebP image format, allowing for lighter files and faster loading.

This is further enhanced by the use of a combination of lazy-loading and low-quality image placeholders.
