      It is possible to use Google apps through domain records verification. Please click here for more information.


      I hope this helps! Please let us know if we could assist you further.

    I absolutely agree - it is so frustrating to have our page built and live and have google describe godaddy in the description rather than our page. And godaddy is no better.

      Please be aware that it usually takes anywhere from 1 to 3 months for Google to update its database and for your site to be indexed. Finding your site using your relevant keywords may take even more time.

      There are ways to speed up this process. I suggest you visit the following information pages:
      Wix guarantees that all of the text and meta tags on your site are being scanned by search engines, however we cannot guarantee that Google will choose to assign your website a high rank, this part is up to you.
      Please don't hesitate to contact us again. Nat

    Please note that Wix does not support verification of Wix sites with Pinterest. 


    As outlined above, you can use Google Webmaster tools by verifying through DNS records. However, we don't provide support for this yet.

    Hi there,

    I am trying to verify my site URL for a Pinterest for Business account.  It's asking me to download the HTML verification file and upload it to my server. How do i do this? The alternate method is to add a meta tag but after reading some of the posts here I'm not sure I can do that?

    Help! Thanks!

    This feature is on our development roadmap and will be built in order of priority. Priority is based on the popularity of our Wishlist items, which is full to overflowing with your good ideas and feedback!

    You can keep up to date with what features are Coming Soon here.
    You can also vote for this feature here .

    Please note that you can use Google Webmaster tools by verifying through DNS records. However, we don't provide support for this yet:

    1. On the Webmaster Tools Home page, click the Manage Site button next to the site you want, and then click Verify this site.
    2. Click the Alternate methods tab.
    3. Select Domain name provider.

    4. Select your domain registrar and follow the instructions on your screen. If your domain registrar isn't listed, select Other, and follow the instructions to manually create a DNS record.
    5. Click Verify. Don't delete the record from your server, as this will cause your site to become unverified.
    6. Enter your Wix Domain Manager (My Account > Manage Premium > Domains)
    a. If you connect to Wix via DNS, this is the Wix Domain Manager
    b. If you connect to Wix via Pointing, the changes will be done by your domain host (i.e. GoDaddy, Network Solutions etc.)

    7. Create a TXT/CNAME record. Enter the value given to you by Google as the content. Use either @ or leave it blank for the first field (where you can fill in ___.domain.com) - whichever one applies to your domain host. Try both- only one should work.
    8. Return to your Google Webmaster tools and make sure the verification worked.

    The records can take up to 72 hours to propagate.

    Google Verification - "In the roadmap ahead"


    I cannot beleive that this is in the roadmap ahead. This should have been put into place before this WIX site was put up. This is such an inconveneince to find this out after the fact when time is of the essence.

    I wish they would disclose before payment -
