Google and Wix sites.
« on: November 02, 2017, 03:59:26 PM »
I have a new client who is running on (paid-for) Wix and my auditing software can't audit the site.

Looking at the source i think it's probably because it's mostly scripts, no outbound links, basically nothing indexable.

I remember Google saying they would stop crawling Wix sites back in 2015/16, is this the case ?

I've not looked closely at them in a while, but I wouldn't touch it. It will hamstring you in one way or another if not several. I'd get them on a proper platform before starting work.

Same goes for godaddy site builder, weebly, and all these other drag n drop/gui builders. Not SEO friendly.

I've had a few small clients over the last 18 months who were on WIX - always the first part of the strategy is to get them off WIX
