The Wix blog is not added to your site via iframe which means that the Blog will show up on your site's source-code, and search engines count the content as part of your site. They will crawl and index all of the content you have on your blog and you can more easily add fresh, quality content to your site on a regular basis and improve your ranking.

    I noticed that my blog is not being crawled or indexed by google.  Why is this?  How can this be fixed?

      Please note I was unable to locate any blog in your Wix site, americanwindshield.com.

      Please provide us with the URL of the blog so we could look into the issue.

      Please elaborate - when have you created your Blog?

       

      Having inserted the string cache: before your URL, I can see Google has last crawled your site on June 17th. Is it possible you have added the Blog afterwards?
       

      Please be aware that it can take 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.

       

      One way to speed up this process is to submit your website directly to search engines.

      You can submit your website directly to Google here.
      You can submit your website directly to Bing here.
       

      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.

       

      Make sure that your websites content has been optimized in accordance with the advice offered in our SEO Learning Center. We also recommend that you use the SEO Wizard & Monitoring tool for a more in depth analysis of your site’s SEO.

      All the best, Or

    The “Wix App Market” allows you to add a simple blog. Unfortunately, it has no RSS function. Readers can neither subscribe to your blog nor share it automatically on Facebook or Twitter. It's a pity that there is no SEO benefit to it as search engines can’t read out your posts (the blog is implemented with JavaScript). Visitors with a Facebook account can leave comments on your blog.

    Original link for above quote:

     

    My question is simple. Are they lying about Wix, Blogs and SEO? Yes, or no.

     

    Cause I'll be damned if I want to waste any more time building a blog which is basically worthless. Not to mention that Wix offers us "picture blogs" but disallows us using pictures. Truly pathetic and pedantic.

     

    cheers-

      Hi Phil,

      Please note, that Google does crawl your blog. However, it does it in a different way than it does with regular pages (via xml).

      I would also like to add, that RSS and subscriptions are just around the corner and are soon to be released.

      We thank you for your patience and understanding.

      Best, Ritti

    I know that the number of pages your site has, the more visible you are on search engines. Does the blog actually add each individual post as an additional page? I see that you're unable to choose a post in the pages menu. it only says "Blog > Single Post". I also noticed that your SEO Wizard doesn't analyze each individual blog post. Only the Blog page. So do Wix Blog Posts do anything to the total page count to your website? and does Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc., recognize those posts as seperate, additional pages?

      Hello, 

       

      The SEO " Techniques" varies, there is not just one method, but I can guarantee is not the amount of pages your site has, but how you use the text on your site is, how many times your key words are in the content etc, etc. check this

      The blog is important for your SEO, because it will be crawled per individual post. and yes,the search engine do recognize them individually. 

       

      Kind Regards, 

      Rosse Wix Team!

    I would like to add the Wix blog to my site, however I am not finding it on my add menu? The only thing I find when click on "add" is "blog elements. Neither of which allow me to create an actual blog post. Any ideas whats wrong?

      Hi invincigirl,

      Please note that you have already added a blog to your site, therefore you now see the blog tools and not "Add blog".

      You can edit your blog by going to the blog page and click the blog itself >> Add& edit blog posts.

      Thanks.

      Gat Wix Team.
