Google Drops Wix Hosted Sites

Having a website for your business is necessary if you want to be competitive these days. There are many ways to get your own site and Wix is a tool that can help you create a basic website. The tool is popular for startup businesses who need a simple site and are looking to save some money in the process. Once you have a website customers still need to be able to find you easily. Unfortunately like many things in life, you get what you pay for.

Earlier this month many sites powered by Wix have been dropped from Google’s index. It is unclear if this is caused by a problem on Google’s end but regardless it has affected many of their sites. Unfortunately since Wix uses one main platform a problem like this can affect each hosted site.

Google has said that they are working on fixing the issue on their end but there is no estimate of when the issue will be resolved. They are re-indexing these sites faster than normal to get these sites back into their search results. At this point it looks like there is nothing that Wix users can do but be patient and wait for their site to be indexed. This can be a serious problem for many small businesses that count on Google traffic for potential leads.

Don’t Lose Business

Having a website for your business that stands out and generates leads is invaluable. Building your own site using tools like WordPress is a great alternative that will give you greater control over your brand. WordPress allows more flexibility than Wix and will be easier to scale to a larger audience. Having the future in mind when setting up your company website can save a lot of headaches later. This can be an intimidating task if you don’t know much about website design. Fortunately there are plugins and themes available through WordPress that make it much easier to setup.

The team at authenticWEB can also help you create an excellent site that showcases your unique offerings. If you truly want to drive more potential clients to your site and not have to wait for Google to fix problems you will need to spend a little time and money. Reevaluate your needs and let our team create a customized site for your business to generate more leads.
