Hi Wix. I was just wondering why does it take between 1 to 3 months for my site to appear in search engine results? It's been a little over a month and I haven't seen or heard from anyone. I know I have a little more time to go yet but I was wondering If I'll need to depend on traffic from my social sites for the traffic or will I have to upgrade from a free site for more traffic? I was just wondering.

I am having the same problem - the only search appearance is if Wix is typed into the search - site has been active for 3 months. Have added meta tag and as much catch words and phrases as could. Site has still not been indexed by any search engines.

Hi, Currently I have for my company a website built in RapidWeaver, but I would like to switch to Wix. Because SEO is for my very important I have outsourced this to a company specialized in SEO optimization. Does Wix allow external companies to optimize Wix websites? I am aware that Wix has his own tool, but because of good results with this company I would like to continue my contract with them. If it is allowed, how do I proceed?

Hi, Wix Team
I have tried to search my website name on google. Unfortunately, I cannot locate. Is this because the 75 dollar google ad dollar is not enough to prioritize my site name ? Or is it any other steps I need to take to make my sites searchable? Thanks!

I checked your site and i noticed you do not have any page descriptions.
Please note that your site title will be displayed in your browser bar while your site is loading. Once your site has loaded, the home page title will be displayed. If the site title is blank, then the original site name will be displayed.
Please make sure to fill in your site and page meta data (title and description). If you do not want there to be any change in the browser bar when your site is loading, simply make the site title and home page title identical.

Here are some tips in regards to search results:
Have you searched for the correct domain?
Make sure that you have entered the correct domain into the search engine.
Have you selected to allow search engines to crawl your site?
Make sure that your site is published and that the Allow search engines to find my site toggle in the Settings > SEO (Google) section is enabled. If this setting is turned off (red), then your site will not be available for search engines to crawl.
Has your site been indexed yet?
Be aware that it can take anywhere from 1 – 3 months for your site to be crawled and indexed in order to appear in search engines such as Google or Yahoo. This waiting period is the same for all websites, not just those created using Wix.
To see if Google has indexed your site, as well as the last time this occurred i.e. to see a cached version of your site, enter your site’s URL with the word cache: before it in the Google search. For example: cache:www.mydomain.com If your site comes up, this means Google has already indexed it.
Remember, if your site has not been crawled and it has been less than 3 months since publishing, don’t worry – give it a little time and try again.
Alternatively, you can help speed up this process by submitting your website to search engines directly.
If your site is indexed, but doesn’t appear for certain keyword searches?
Once you have established that your site has been crawled and indexed, getting the search results you want is the next big step and something that takes time and consistent effort – even for the most experienced SEO experts.
Remember, the more websites Google has on a certain subject, the more competition there will be to get a higher rank. We have a lot of SEO information available for you to read here and more suggested reading within our blog here.
We also suggest that you use the Wix SEO Monitoring Tool.
If your site used to appear in search engines, but no longer seems to be indexed?
This could be for a myriad of reasons e.g. black hat SEO.
There are certain techniques that Google will penalize you for using.
