Meta Tags are important as they provide information about your site to search engine crawlers. Remember to update your Meta Tags both for your site and your individual pages:


To update Site Meta Tags: From the left side of the Editor, click the Settings icon > click SEO (Google) > fill in your Meta Tags under Site Title, Site Description and Keywords > click Done.


Note: Make sure that the Allow search engines to find my site option is switched on (green).


To update Page Meta Tags: From the left side of the Editor, click the Pages icon > next to the relevant page, click the Settings wheel > in the Settings and SEO window, fill in your Meta Tags under Page Title, Page Description and Keywords > click Done.

    adding code

    Hi is there any possiblity to add code to the <head> tag? like a tracking code from https://www.inspectlet.com/ ?

      First thank you fore merging the topics.

      i have been looking around a bit and from what i gather is that a code like :
      <!-- Begin Inspectlet Embed Code --> <script type="text/javascript" id="inspectletjs"> window.__insp = window.__insp || []; __insp.push(['wid', XXXXXX]); (function() { function __ldinsp(){var insp = document.createElement('script'); insp.type = 'text/javascript'; insp.async = true; insp.id = "inspsync"; insp.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https' : 'http') + '://cdn.inspectlet.com/inspectlet.js'; var x = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; x.parentNode.insertBefore(insp, x); } if (window.attachEvent){ window.attachEvent('onload', __ldinsp); }else{ window.addEventListener('load', __ldinsp, false); } })(); </script> <!-- End Inspectlet Embed Code -->

      would not be permitted because of the Script tag ? is there any other place or way of doing it or am i just out of luck?

      You can add header codes to the <head> section of your site for verification or authorship approval. Header code supported services include Google Webmaster toolsBing Webmaster ToolsTwitter CardsPinterest VerificationAlexa site owner claim, and more!

      Only valid HTML tags <> will be accepted. Unfortunately, <SCRIPT> won't pass validation.

    Adding meta tags

    Hello:  I'm trying to verify my site International-Directions for Googleplus page.  I have the code, but it's not accepting it.  It says there's an invalid character.  I thought this was just a cut and paste option.  Please help.


    Thank you,

      Hi, Roxanne!


      Please note that the code should follow this format:

      <meta name="google-site-verification" content="Your Code Here" />.

      Please note that I've looked at the videos and read the instructions.  Your format doesn't tell me how to change anything.  I've given you the code from Google, can you put it in the format? I can paste it myself.


      Thank you,

    I have added the meta description, keywords and site titles for each page. However when I check the meta description, keywords and site titles of those pages they have not changed and each page has the same  meta description, keywords and site title as the homepage.  

    I have followed the steps many times (click on the Pages button, then the gear for each page, and edit the SEO settings) and did this for each page. Furthermore, I would like to point out that I have used many different tools to check the meta data, just to make sure this was not the issue. 

    Nothing seems to change SEO wise and therefore I hope somebody can help me soon...


    Kind Regards,

      I have checked the meta data with the mozbar extention and with http://www.seocentro.com/tools/search-engines/metatag-analyzer.html and with http://www.exadium.com/tools/metadata/. 

      I hope you can help me...

      Dear Paola,


      Not all external wizards can read Wix sites.


      You can see the meta data if you view the source code of the escaped fragment, and can also use our own SEO wizard. 


      If you want to view your new HTML website exactly as Google and other search engines see it, you cannot simply right click on the live site and select to view the source code - this is how it worked for the Wix Flash websites, but not for the HTML5 sites.

      What you need to do to view the HTML website as Google does, is simply add "?_escaped_fragment_" to the end of your websites domain name. Eg. www.mydomain.com/?_escaped_fragment_ Once you are viewing the ?_escaped_fragment_ version of your website, you can now right click to View Source Code, but this is only if you are interested in viewing the source code.

      Otherwise, seeing the  ?_escaped_fragment_ version of your website is a nice way to see how Google is viewing your website.  

      The following is a guide to help you manage the header tags for your HTML website:

      Title - H1 - (only the most top left is H1 - second (etc) title will be H2)

      Page Title- H2

      Heading XL - H3

      Heading L - H4

      Heading M - H5

      Heading S - H6

      The rest of the styles are mapped to paragraph tag.

      We can assure you that all of your Page Meta Tags are been crawled and recognized by search engines. A lot of time and thought has been put into the SEO side of this new product.

      For information on on changing the format of your Wix Font click here.


      After purchasing a premium upgrade, connect Wix with the Bing Webmaster Tool and the Google Webmaster Tool


      To see if Google has indexed your website, as well as the last time this happened i.e. to see a cached version of your website, enter your website’s URL with the word cache: before it in the Google search. For example: cache:www.mydomain.com


      With the Wix SEO Monitoring Tool you will receive a step by step guide to improve your site's SEO. In addition, you can also target what your customers are searching for and it will help your site to get found on Google.

      Please click here for our SEO learning center.

      I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Hello ,

    I have set onpage seo for all pages like "title", "description" and "keyword" but i have faced a big problem in seo ... my all pages get home's "description" and "keywords". Which is repeated in all pages. This is not good and how to fix this problem that my exact pages get own "description". "keywords"...  which i have already given.

    here is my website http://www.aroyallimos.com/

      Indeed having the same description for every page of your site is not healthy for SEO.


      You can change individual pages' SEO settings by clicking on Pages, then clicking on the gear for each respective page for its settings. In the new window you will find SEO Page settings which you will be able to freely edit.

      Most likely, you're looking  at the wrong code page. An answer to this topic can be found in How do I access my Website source code?. If you'll look in the right code, and you've set up page specific meta tags, you'll see them in the relevant escaped fragment page code.


      If you have any questions let us know,

    Hi there, you can add Titles and Descriptions to your site. And if Google finds all that relevant to your site theme - it will pick the information up and will display it in SERP. Make sure you used your keywords and the sentences should be readable (Google likes it) - this is how they work at casino advertising agency and that helped to my site vitally.

      Hey nick19730,


      Unfortunately it is not possible to add HTML code directly to the source code of your site. Please note that to add a Title to your page you simply need to add a text box! 


      To add a text box to your site: From the left side of the Editor, click the Add icon -> click Text > choose the type of text you like to add (Title or Paragraph).

      To edit the text, double-click the text box and start editing.


      Note: You can change the color, font, size and much more from the toolbar at the top of the text editor.

      For further information regarding text please click on the following link or check out this video:


      Tip: We recommend to copy and paste external text to notepad first. Notepad strips the text down to 'Plain Text'.

      Once the text has been placed within Notepad, it can be transferred to your website. Issues such as not being able to change fonts and colors after pasting the text should then be resolved.


      If there is anything else we can do for you, please let us know!
      Thank you,

      Eyal, Wix Customer Support Team
