    I'm not sure why i did it but i bought a wix website a few months ago. i've used their editor and done the usual onpage seo and i've reached page 2/3 for most of my keywords. however, it's literally impossible to get any further! my h1 tags are not getting recognised my Ahref/any other software which is supposed to recognise it so i'm not sure if google recognises it either(Wix support keeps saying they use ajax and hence third party softwares wont recognise it????) .. also, the title tags/description of the blog posts are all the same.. ie you can modify them! so basically this has set up all kinds of flags on WMT and Ahrefs and again wix support says nothing can be done. i'd not really checked any of this uptil now cause i just assumed it'd be fine. Has anyone who has worked on Wix websites before help me out? is it possible to rank well even with all these problems? This is so frustrating.. Cant wait to go back to wordpress. however, i've spent so much time on this site and wix literally resets the site if you leave or try to move it

    Yeah I remember back in the day (2009 or 2010) when I started my first yt views site, I made it in Wix. Back then it was not even html5 but flash.. which is even worse for ranking. However, I somehow ranked it in the top 3 for 'buy youtube views', all seo was done by myself. However, bear in mind that it was 6-7 years ago and SEO was different back then..

    It is still possible to rank Wix sites. Not ideal, but possible. I had a client that didnt want to pay for a full blown site and chose to do a wix one. Asked me to do some SEO and get him some exposure and hopefully clients. After I had his site on page 1 top 6 he decided to go with a branded site and I ranked it a bit faster and easier than the Wix site. TLDR: possible yes.

    Hey guys!

    Any updates on the subject? I've had a miserable experience with high PR and DA backlink job that got my Wix site no where after 3 months!

    Any news with your promoting your wix site @ownasong ?

    Thanks!
