In just four easy steps, users can create and publish a website for free. First users should log in and then click Create. If you are new to Wix.com, sign up for an account first before you log in. Next, users can either choose one of the templates provided and click Edit or choose a Blank Website to launch the Wix editor. Then, users can customize their websites using Wix’s click/replace/edit and click/drag/drop features in its editor. Finally, users can publish their websites by clicking Publish, Website and True Size in the Wix editor. In a matter of minutes, users can create Flash-based websites that are search engine friendly.
“Did you say Flash-based websites that are search engine friendly? How can this be?” You ask, knowing that search engines love text-based websites. Well, Wix.com says, “behind every Wix creation there is HTML code that search engine crawlers use to read your content and rank your search engines. And you can manage your keywords, description and meta-tag information from Settings in the editor.”
Being the skeptical person that I am, I decided to test Wix.com’s claim by searching Google for Milla Camargo Handbags’ website – a website created using Wix.com. To my surprise, Google listed Milla Camargo Handbags’ website first in its organic search results as pictured below. Impressive, Wix.com. Very impressive.
