    How can I view the source code of my Wix site?

    Question

    Wix uses Ajax Crawling to help search engines read your sites code. With Ajax Crawling, your content, data and design are merged together and extracted easily by search engines.

    What does this mean for you? Ajax Crawling changes the way that you access your site's source code. It is not possible to simply right click and view source to see your site's source code. Doing so will show you the following code, <meta name="fragment" content="!">, which simply tells search engines that we use Ajax Crawling.

    If you wish to view your site's source code, you will need to access the escaped fragment version of your site. You can do so by adding ?_escaped_fragment_= to your domain name as can be seen in the examples below. Once you have accessed the escaped fragment version of your site, you may right click and click View Source Code

    Example site - www.wixexample.com
    1. Home Page - place ?_escaped_fragment_= at the end of your URL
    www.wixexample.com/?_escaped_fragment_=

    Example site - www.wixexample.com#!AboutUs/c2414
    2. Individual pages - ?_escaped_fragment_= in place of the #!
    www.wixexample.com/?_escaped_fragment_=AboutUs/c2414

    We can assure you that your individual pages are seen by Google.
