Question: I’m using WIX template and was told I wouldn’t be able to optimize my site correctly, is this true?
Answer: Wix is TERRIBLE for SEO because it is Adobe Flash based. Flash is INVISIBLE to Google and does NOT help you with SEO. So if you want your site to show up well on Google, you MUST use a text-based template (e.g. WordPress, GoDaddy’s Website tonight), etc. Wix is a terrible, terrible idea / platform for SEO because Flash and SEO do NOT mix.
