I have developed a number of sites using Wix.com. For most part and specially when it is a site leaning towards rich visual media content (galleries, videos, music, etc) it is easy to use, gives you a lot of options and with some creative input from yourself you can have a world class site up and running in a couple of days. I find the SEO working fine and I have high rankings on Google, it takes time but you also have to play the game and optimize your presence on the web through reviews, social media, etc. Wix is not a magic silver bullet, you still have to do some work.
Hi, I used wix.com services, i have created a website and found it is not Google search engine friendly that website never ranked in Google. The title tags and descriptions for each page is same, you never change the title on different pages. All internal pages has the same title & description which shows on home page.
I would suggest to book your domain and hosting from any other company.
My site has not worked for over a week.All the support lines lead to dead ends.It won't let me add my phone number for a call back and there is no email to contact customer support. I am losing business and I am seriously regretting choosing Wix to host my website
I have spent days perfecting my website, I have transferred my own domain name and purchased one from wix. now my old and wix site are offline. I tried to book a call back wont verify number to complete call back. I can't email wix and I am about to contact my bank to cancel payment. Do not waste your time with wix...not worth the stress!
Wix offer a simple service, but having now had a problem - my email being cancelled for no apparent reason, I can't get a straight answer out of them. I tried to schedule a phone call and sent all my details - they didn't ring. I contacted their billings dept - they cancelled my ticket for no apparent reason (probably because they were trying to contact me on the email address they cancelled), and when I consistently ask them a straight question about why my email has been cancelled, they just won't give me a straight answer. The fact that my main email address has been cancelled is a disaster for my business, but Wix don't seem to have an appropriate response for this. If I knew this kind of thing was going to happen I would have thought twice about buy this service from them in the first place. Disappointing and frustrating, but probably how they make their financial margin - by offering weak, leaderless support.
I really like Wix.com because it is html hassle free. You can use html if you know how, but I don't and this is the greatest thing on earth! I also really appreciate that there is a wishlist for the site because it just means Wix is constantly trying to make itself better to help its users. The design tools are easy to use and you can truly think outside the box for really cool designs. I really think Wix is the next best thing in terms of all web hosting sites go. I had GoDaddy for awhile because it was cheaper but its html free site builder as very restrictive and I went back to Wix. Best decision made!
If you want to build a website for an extremely small (but creative) group of viewers, and have neither the cash, time, or html experience to work with a CMS - WIX is for you!
However, if you are attempting to build a website for any sort of business - don't bother reading further, just stop looking into WIX altogether. Their coding procedures don't allow you to have anything proprietary about your website. The speed of WIX sites (though efficient) are in the botton 20% because of all the BS code they inject into your site. Last, but certainly not least, SEO operations on WIX sites are a joke, you can't trust anything they say regarding this.
Why two stars? Well there are obvious reasons behind why the company performs so poorly - I can't hold them to that. For one, providing such a customizable service with specific limitations guarantees a user nightmare - and if your customer service department isn't scalable enough to handle these user complaints, that's when you start busting out the standardized responses to issues such as "sorry but at this time that isn't possible, we're looking into it though!"
The part that gets me is really the fact that their users are providing them with great ideas on how to make their product better, but to no avail. Month after month the wix development team releases an updates with "new fonts" or "new galleries" - bullshit that no one cares about. It would really be a push in the right direction if they would stop looking at the developers as customers, and start looking at the developer's customers as customers.
This has to be the worst company for TECH support I have ever come across
They send you some call back that never recognises any numbers and then make u submit tickets that never ever get answered they just take money and do not offer the service they promise....
Do not waste ur time.. or ur money.... on these chumps
As soon as I informed my bank to cancel my card number these guys managed to then close my website immediately the same day.... honestly i think they are just in it to steal peoples money with a really poor product... Do not trust them with your details. (They cancel my site same day i cancel my card but they cant answer my support for weeks and weeks) They do not have a proper system to List yoru site on google it wont show up.... they have the worst A records mail records options u cannot even set up ur emails with support which u will not get...even after i emailed a ticket 5 times telling them I will cancel my account they still didn't even get back to me... I will be sure to read my statements to see how much $ they actually took out of my card....
I've read through the negative complaints, and many don't understand that "of course" Wix has every right advertise on their FREE live sites they give out to customers to try their service. - this is why members can upgrade to their Hosting packages (that point to your own domain name) to keep them in business for their services. WIX.COM saved my a@@ ! My long time +10yr registrar host one day decided to transfer my site to an entirely dysfunctional platform and crashed my online business site forcing me to commit an emergency rebuild and so I chose Wix.com on which I had made similar websites for other clients in the past. (Giving you my honest opinion): you simply can't find such a User-Friendly and immersive site builder as they have on Wix. period ! --- yes, I too have seen server lag issues from time to time, but that mostly has to do with connections speeds across the globe. I was skeptical about Wix when they first hit the market, but after several years they have truly impressed with their constant and progressive efforts to provide an excellent product. Nobody else compares... Wix won me over.
I have had a wix premium based website for almost a year now, and my site is fully optimized. I have been unable to rank for my site title or domain name, no matter what I do. Wix says they are google friendly! I don't know how they can advertise that legally. I requested a site review by one of their experts, and never heard back from anyone. This has been a very frustrating experience. Wix does let you build a beautiful website, but what good does it do if no one can find you, not even by your company name.... I a not talking about trying to rank for some kind of crazy key words. This the problem with a website built on the AJAX platform. For some reason, on Yahoo search, I had no problem ranking #1 for my business name....but Google does not like Wix....and that is what everyone uses.
I went to another webbuilder that uses a more traditional HTML, and my website was ranking on Google within 2 days....
I feel like this company is run by a bunch of new-age wannabe techies that are only in it for themselves. I've been trying to get a hold of them for 5 days now all they have is some an option to leave your number and they will call you back..long story short if you miss their call you gotta setup a new call. This bs has been going on for 5 days now..my website is offline I am missing business could i please just speak to a person?? damn it!
I opened my wix account last year in february when I started my own comapny, and have been using wix to host my comapny websote ass well as my three company emailaccounts. In oktober I requested that wix released my emailacconunts and my website to google,, and I have written comfirmation from wix, that they have received that request. Now tey have cancelled my webpage and my emailaccounts, and refuse to relase them to google. I cannpt reactive to stay with wix either. As a result my company is now losing monet! I have sent numerous emails and support requests to wix, but the do not answer. I have tried to call wix, but after welcomin my call, the call is disconnected because "I need to call from a valid phonenumber"???? All I want is my emailaccounts and my webpage up and running again - and WIX is making it impossible. I have never experienced such bad customerservice in my life and I would advice everybody to be causious to host valuable information with wix, because you might end up losing it all like I did. Shame on you WIX
Originally I created a site with Wix for an online newspaper for students and such. I thought the site was brilliant and upgraded to Premium with the Halloween sale. Now a few months on and my viewers and writers are unable to view the site which is a big problem, I checked to see how this issue could be resolved by checking the problems page of Wix....apparently many people were having this problem. What irritated me was that all those who had complained about this issue all received the same message from the wix team simply stating they could find nothing wrong. There clearly is.
So no surprise when I would receive the same email. I am not impressed, and found I enjoyed the site until paying for premium. Safe to say I will be looking for somewhere else.
Good if you are looking for a free platform to use as an online portfolio. Not worth paying for, and just terrible!
LET ME JUST START OUT FROM SAYING DO NOT BUY YOUR DOMAIN FROM THEM BECAUSE GOD FORBID IF YOU WANT TO USE ANOTHER SITE TO POWER YOUR DOMAIN THEY WILL SIMPLY TELL YOU "I'M SORRY BUT YOU CANNOT DELETE YOUR DOMAIN. SO STUPID.
I really don't know why this site has gotten such bad reviews. I got my entire website ready to go live and decided to check out the reviews. I almost didn't go through with it but after finding a $50.00 off coupon for the year, I figured I would just take my chances. I'm so glad that I did. Designing your site couldn't be easier and if you make changes, they are instantly showing on your live website. Attaching my already purchased domain from godaddy was simple, with their walk through video. I followed their suggestions to get noticed on search engines, and so far so good. Thank you wix for making this such an easy and affordable way to get your business online.
The site and templates look great and I was just about to join up. But HELL I just read these reviews and now am reconsidering!! I do know with reviews that you have to take your own opinion and read between the lines. But I have and its a very bad one ha! Just wondering if they have improved at all? are there ANY genuine positive experiences out there??
