In terms of core web vitals, which is collection of user experience speed metrics, the information is clear that Wix sites exceed popular solutions like WordPress.
What’s brand-new is that Wix clients can now exercise overall control of every page however from a single location, making it really simple to
upgrade a site. New Wix SEO Settings The Wix SEO settings does two main things from one settings page:
- Supplies a summary of SEO settings across the site
- Offers a way to edit those SEO settings
Wix SEO Settings enable their users to apply technical SEO settings to an entire section of a website or a picked group of pages.
The big change is that users can do the exact same thing from the SEO settings at a page by page level, without having to leap around to the page itself.
This modification applies to the following technical SEO aspects:
- Meta tags
- Title tags
- Evaluation and modify URL slugs
- Open Graph data
- Structured data
- Inspect indexing status
One concern I had had to do with the scenario in which a user custom-made codes structured information and then Google at a long time in the future updates their structured information requirements for qualifying for abundant snippets. Will that user’s structured information be invalid till they notice?
Einat Hoobian-Seybold, SEO Product Lead at Wix explained a solution for that kind of circumstance:
“When a user edits or adds new structure data by hand, it overrides the Wix defaults, however users can reset back to initial defaults and be completely eligible for all of the predefined ones at any time.
In any case, Wix has validation on the structured information syntax.”
This brand-new performance is currently used in English and will roll out to other languages later on.
Wix describes how the brand-new SEO settings work:
“It is available from the SEO Tools section in the Dashboard, to EN users and will be gradually be rolled out to other languages.
Users are provided with a report of all their site’s meta tags in one place, for primary pages and product pages.
They can click each page to open an editing panel, and personalize the meta tags, URL slug, index status, structured data markup and more for the chosen page.”
The feature is presently offered for primary pages and product pages.
According to Wix:
“The brand-new Wix SEO Settings tool allows users to review and modify their meta tags for each page, as well as their URL slug, indexability, open graph tags, structured data markup, robots meta tags and much more– all from one place in the Wix Control panel.
This update assists users to be more efficient and save time when dealing with their SEO strategy, particularly those dealing with bigger websites, by providing the flexibility to work quicker, smarter, and at scale.
Users can utilize the new SEO Settings for Main pages and Item pages, with more page types to come such as Blog site pages, and additional features like bulk modifying of the meta tags.”
