In terms of core web vitals, which is collection of user experience speed metrics, the data is clear that Wix websites surpass popular solutions like WordPress.
What’s brand-new is that Wix customers can now exercise overall control of every page however from a single location, making it very simple to
update a site. New Wix SEO Settings The Wix SEO settings does two main things from one settings page:
- Provides a summary of SEO settings across the website
- Uses a way to edit those SEO settings
Wix SEO Settings permit their users to use technical SEO settings to an entire area of a site or a selected group of pages.
The huge modification is that users can do the same thing from the SEO settings at a page by page level, without having to jump around to the page itself.
This change applies to the following technical SEO factors:
- Meta tags
- Title tags
- Evaluation and modify URL slugs
- Open Graph information
- Structured information
- Check indexing status
One question I had was, what if you custom code structured data and Google later on updates their structured information requirements for qualifying for abundant bits?
Einat Hoobian-Seybold, SEO Item Lead at Wix responded to that concern:
“As soon as a user is modifying or including new structure information by hand, it overrides the Wix defaults, however users can reset back to original defaults and be fully eligible for all of the predefined ones at any time.
In any case, Wix has validation on the structured data so if a user is missing out on a required field because of the changes they made or Google made, the user will get a notice about it.”
This new performance is presently provided in English and will roll out to other languages later on.
Wix explains how the new SEO settings work:
“It is accessible from the SEO Tools area in the Control panel, to EN users and will be slowly be rolled out to other languages.
Users are offered with a report of all their site’s meta tags in one location, for primary pages and product pages.
They can click each page to open a modifying panel, and personalize the meta tags, URL slug, index status, structured data markup and more for the chosen page.”
The feature is currently offered for primary pages and product pages.
According to Wix:
“The brand-new Wix SEO Settings tool enables users to evaluate and modify their meta tags for each page, as well as their URL slug, indexability, open chart tags, structured data markup, robotics meta tags and even more– all from one place in the Wix Dashboard.
This upgrade helps users to be more efficient and conserve time when working on their SEO technique, specifically those dealing with bigger websites, by providing the versatility to work much faster, smarter, and at scale.
Users can use the brand-new SEO Settings for Main pages and Item pages, with more page types to come such as Blog pages, and additional functions like bulk editing of the meta tags.”
