    I started a free website through wix. I think I upgraded for $20.00 or so. Plus $11 month for domain. I followed all there instructions. Now when i search it shows up right on top. It did take a couple weeks to get in google algorithm. I am happy. Hope this info helps others. Never again am i paying yellow book and such.

    This is not new information
    I haven’t paid yellow page ads since 2002

    Glad you found it out on your own

    Free. Ah, except for that $20 plus $11/month. That makes "free" more expensive that what I pay for my site and hosting through ultrawebhosting.

    I am paying the 11.00 a month for domain and hosting. I just compare my advertising budget to a smokers 7.00 a day habit. I can always justify spending money on advertising. Thanks.

    It's not hard to understand what he wrote. He started with a free version of Wix and then upgraded to paid. To force a comparison to what you pay for your discount web host makes no sense. Apples and oranges.

    Side note to all: Research Wix here and on the interwebs before going down that road. Squarespace, for example, is a far better alternative.

    Exactly. I always recommend SquareSpace as an alternative for a DIY first-timer. It isn't just load times with Wix either. It's also got a slew of other issues such as responsiveness (mobile compatibility) with its elements.

    Also, third party crawlers have a really hard time picking up useful information and links on Wix' platform. So if you or a marketer uses a program to "monitor" your site's SEO health, being on Wix won't help.
