    How can I "un-publish" my site / Make my Wix site invisible to search engines?
    If you don't want your site to be visible to search engines, you can unpublish it by going to Settings > SEO > uncheck Let search engines find my website.
    Once you have unchecked Let search engines find my website be sure to Save your document!
    Please note: If the site has already been indexed it will take about one month for search engines to update their databases. A trick around this: if your site has already been indexed, open your Wix in the editor, go to File > Save As and save it under a new name. You will now have a duplicate document. In the new document, go to Settings > SEO > uncheck Let search engines find my website. Then go to My Account and delete the old document from your account.

  • Publishing on your own domain

    Can I connect my Wix site to my own domain?
    Yes! It's simple to connect your Wix site to your own domain with Wix Upgrades:
    Purchase your domain (if you haven't already) go here and purchase an upgrade plan that lets you use your own domain. Then simply go to this page and follow the simple steps provided.

    I’ve published my site and connected it to it’s own domain. If I edit it, will it automatically update?
    Yes! Anytime you edit and save a previously published Wix document, it will be automatically updated in all its published locations.

    Now that my domain is up, how do I remove the old Wix URL?
    Your Wix URL will always exist online in the background, however, it will no longer be found in search engines. If you don't send your Wix URL to your users, users will only find your site by using your domain name.

    How do I connect my Wix site to my own domain?
    You'll find step-by-step instructions here.

    Can I connect more than one domain to one Wix site/document?
    At the moment, you can only connect one domain (URL) to each Wix site.
    But don't fear there is a simple solution if you do own more than one domain (for example: www.domain.com and www.domain.co.uk):
    Step 1. Upgrade your Wix site (if you haven't already) and follow the steps to connecting your domain with 1 of your URLs e.g. www.domain.com.
    You'll find instructions for how to do this here.
    Step 2. Once that domain is connected to your Wix site you simply ask your hosting company to point all your other domains (e.g. www.domain.co.uk) to the first domain. (www.domain.com)
    That way only one domain will be pointing directly to your Wix site and all other domains will point to the domain that is connected to Wix.

  • Deep Linking to a Specific Page

    We do support deep linking. You may now direct your viewers to a Master Page of your Wix site by giving them a specific link. Note: this feature will only work with Master Pages, not with Pages.
    example: www.wix.com
    www.wix.com/contact
    www.wix.com/about
    These pages would open a specific Master Page (eg, Contact Us Master Page, About Us Master Page) instead of the home page of your Wix document.

    There are a few restrictions with our deep linking feature:
    1. The deep linking feature will work with Master Pages, Pages (only firs level), expanded pictures and expanded products.
    2. Title all of your Master Pages smartly by using the Page Manager in your Editor. (e.g.: don't leave a Master Page_1, instead rename it About_Me)
    3. When a viewer is brought to your site by deep linking, (eg, www.wix.com/about) the URL in the browser will not change, so when the page is refreshed, the URL will bring the user back to the specific Master Page (eg, www.wix.com/about) and not to the home page of your site.
