Question: If I use Wix to create a site (which hosts my site for me). . . is there any possibility for me to upload an XML sitemap?
Answer: First of all, Adobe Flash website are NOT Google friendly. So to the extent that WIX.com is pure Adobe Flash, you are just shooting yourself in the foot, deluding yourself, etc. I feel very strongly about this, and it’s easy to look at evidence: Pure Adobe Flash websites do NOT do well on SEO.
You can a) create additional pages that have text / SEO-friendly content, and/or b) put the FLASH at the top and the text at the bottom. But in some way shape or form, you have to create text to be SEO friendly.
As for the XML sitemap, you can certainly create one for a FLASH website. BUT it won’t help you very much, as the main factors of SEO are not functioning on the FLASH website. So if SEO is important, I strongly recommend that you create additional text content, as that is the only way to succeed at SEO in any competitive market.
