Wix Under the Microscope

If you have done some searching for website building tools, you must have come across “Wix”. It is one of the top website builders in the market, and it has helped around 100 million people build their websites without any technical knowledge of web programming. Thanks to its exciting features, that number is only set to grow.Considering its ease of use for beginners and assemblage of advanced options for experienced users, it is no surprise that it has a huge customer base.

Although all these things that we get to see on numerous Wix reviews are quite cool, I take nothing for granted. So I did my research before writing this review. I put Wix to the test and the results are here.

But first, let’s have a look at an overview of the company.

Who is Wix?

Wix is a unique, website building service, started by Avishai AbrahamiNadav Abrahami, and Giora Kaplan in 2006. Wix is an idea that popped up as a side effect of some other project by the Wix creators. While they were trying to develop a website for some other project, they figured how challenging and expensive it is to build a website. So, they decided to start a web development platform that can assist users to create websites just by dragging and dropping website elements. In short, they wanted to create a platform with which anyone who can use a web browser can create a fully functioning website.

By April 2010, Wix had 3.5 million users, and they had also raised $10 million in Series C funding. One year later, Wix doubled its size and raised $40 million in Series D funding. Today, eleven years since the company first entered the market, Wix founders and the rest of the Wix team—valued at $61 million—are helping over 100 million users with no programming skills to create beautiful, professional and functional web pages—or at least that’s what they claim to do.

Now, for many of us—and surely for you too— Wix has become a synonym for website builder. The question is, is it as good as they paint it out to be? We’ve put Wix under the microscope to give you this detailed Wix.com review.

A close look at Wix

Design

There are two options provided for users who plan to design or change the look of their website: Wix ADI and Wix Editor.

ADI, Artificial Design Intelligence is a unique system on Wix.com. It builds a unique website design based on the inputs given by the customer. This system develops designs using the combinations of various Wix elements such as layouts, pages, icons, and images. Like all other website builders, they do also have a regular editor: The Wix Editor. A place where you can start designing from scratch by adding Wix elements on a blank page or instead choose a design from the Wix repository with hundreds of well-designed templates. Wix has a detailed guide on how to use all Wix elements in designs; You can find it here

Wix templates, which are developed using Html5 and Ajax will give a professional and finished look to a website. The drag and drop option that works on almost all Wix elements will allow you to customize and give your site a unique look. But, of course, benefits are never the full story. Just like all other website builders, Wix designs have some backlogs, which the Wix team will have to look into in their future versions.

According to me, the major drawback in the design section of Wix is its inflexibility. Inflexibility in changing the templates whenever you want, and also in swapping from the ADI editor to the Regular Editor.

Once you choose a design, you are forced to use that design forever, unless you are ready to build a whole new site from scratch using a new template. The same is the case with its ADI editor; once you choose the ADI as your option to design the look of your website, you will not have an option of returning to the regular WIX editor, where you can do a lot of your customization.

Loading speed

Loading speed of the website has a considerable impact on search engines page rankings. So, if you want to get traffic for your site—who doesn’t though? — you better pay attention to this section. Wix, with its automatic image optimization feature, will optimize images on your websites to improve the loading speed. Also, to improve the loading speed, it has progressive JPEG images. Like all top website builders and hosting companies, Wix uses CDN to increase the loading speed. CDN is an interconnected system of cache servers in different geographical locations. Wix uses the closest cache servers to your visitor’s geographic location to fetch the content to his/her browser in a much faster way; so, no matter where your visitors/customers are from, your Wix website will still be accessible to them with increased speed in loading time.

It all sounds nice, right? But how does that translate into numbers? Well, we ran some tests with GTmetrix to give you some proof through this Wix review— and please take into account the result of loading speeds along with other website builders. The loading speeds depend on many factors such as time of the day, type of internet connection, template, the page size of the website and even the device used— and the average loading time we got was 18.6 seconds. We used four different sites with different templates. And those numbers, my friend, are barely acceptable. Wix’s loading speed is not as bad as the others, but it is not the best considering Wix as the industry leader in website builder industry. With all their fancy technology, they could do a lot better.

Mobile Friendliness

The world is going mobile, and if you want to catch that wave and keep your visitors happy, you will have to make sure your website is rendering well on small mobile screens, while still loading fast with those little resources on mobiles. So I also decided to check how responsive are the website built on Wix in this Wix review. To make your website load fast on smaller devices, Wix provides a mobile optimization option. Each template on Wix is automatically optimized for mobile devices, and in addition, there is also the Wix Mobile View—a.k.a. the mobile editor—which lets you do some of your own customizations, such as changing the colors and background images, on your sites for mobile devices.

All this is what Wix Promises but reality involve few issues that might cause problems for rendering websites well on mobile devices.

Not all themes in the Wix repository are completely responsive. For Wix theme to be completely responsive, it should use all full-width elements, but some themes don’t use all full-width elements. Here is a list of Wix templates that are using full-width elements. If you are not using a newer responsive template, you can include all important features of your website only on full-width elements available in your template.  Here is a list of all full-width elements

In a nutshell, although the designs in Wix are not developed using technology that can easily make websites completely responsive, you can still make mobile friendly Wix websites with some research on the designs you choose for your website.

SEO

Wix has all the features needed to do the basics on page optimization for every page. Some of the leading SEO features of the Wix website builder includes the page’s meta tags (title, description, etc.), alt text for images, heading tags from H1 to H7, anchor links, redirecting tools, added Google Analytics System, and site verification. Wix also has SEO Wizard that guides you through, when you are trying to make your website more SEO friendly. So, yes, the essentials are there, they do have a decent on-page SEO toolset.

But, there’s a difference—and a big one—between “it works, and it’s easy” and “it’s the right solution, and it’s easy.” And, unfortunately, Wix is not up to standard, and here’s why.

AJAX, a technology used in Wix templates is still known to have problems with indexing web pages properly into search engines. Additionally, Wix subpages which use AJAX will create hasty URL structures with special symbols like “! #” included in the URLs.

Despite all of these, it is still not the end of the world. Most websites only need the bare basics—and Wix does provide them—but, if SEO is essential to your long-term marketing strategy, then Wix probably isn’t the best option for you.

Integration

Wix has more than 260 apps available for you to integrate into your Wix website. And that number for sure sets them apart from their competition. These 3rd party apps include tools and services that extend Wix’s functionality to not only the personalization of your page but also to help you in building a better and more functional website. And if their number of apps isn’t impressive enough, check this out: Wix app installations are averaging more than 42,000… per day! That is 15 million app installations per year. Wix’s users sure love the Wix’s app market.

The App Market includes apps such as live chat widgets by LiveChat and shopping carts by shopify. It also offers other functional services, like schedules planner, reservation tools, social widgets, or marketing tools. Most of these apps are free, but you can also buy their Premium versions to access more options. With hundreds of 3rd party apps available in their impressive App Market, Wix is regularly introducing new add-ons to its users—way to go, Wix!

Interactivity

Interacting with your customers is easy with Wix. You can add a Signup/Login element, which allows you to create membership sites. Members can be manually or automatically approved, and pages can be set to members.

You can also add some other unique features and elements— from their massive App Market, of course—to further interact with your visitors. Different apps like forums, guestbooks, real-time comment feeds, and even premium online booking are all available in Wix to enhance your page and improve the user’s experience when they stop by; hopefully encouraging them to come back!

Blogging

Wix’s blogging feature is a pretty good add-on for your site. The Blog Manager comes with all the little nuances I like to see in a blog editor. You can do things like editing and publishing posts, attaching images, videos to the post, categorizing posts, saving drafts, leaving comments via Facebook or Disqus with Wix blogging. It also allows you to decide which post you want to feature on your site’s main page, and it even lets you schedule the post to go live at a later date for your convenience.

Wix’s blogging system is SEO friendly since it comes with most of the features that you’ll need, like tags, categories, RSS, and others. And if you are in a rush, and you need to post or edit a post ASAP, you will be able to edit and publish articles on the go using the Wix mobile app. So, if we were to put Wix vs WordPress—the king of blogging—, Wix would still be up to the task. All in all, Wix present users with an intuitive, do-it-yourself blogging system that I am sure you’ll love.

Support

Let me just start by saying that Wix offers a very user-friendly interface, with lots of direction cues and prompts. For example, each editable element in your design includes a question mark. All you have to do is click on it, and you will get additional information and practical advice. You learn as you build. But, if you happen to face a serious problem that you can’t fix by yourself, there are few other support options available. First, there’s the Wix Help Center, which allows you to search for questions and keywords on their page. You’ll find many categories there, including “domains,” “the Wix editor,” “mailboxes”, and much more; under which you’ll locate the answer to your problem.

Wix also offers a lot of text-based and video tutorials. So, it’s up to you if you prefer to look at the steps on how to make your own website or read all about them. You can also visit their Forum, which is an active community. This support forum has many practical questions posted by users, with the solutions mostly provided by the Wix support staff. All issues go public, and Wix as a well-known company in the market, answers them quite quickly. Although all this seems interesting, there is always a chance that every individual might face a unique problem and there are no solutions provided in either the support forum or the Wix help guides. To solve these situations, Wix also offers email support or support call back service via phone.

Surprisingly Wix doesn’t have LiveChat support like other top websites and store builders. It would be a better addition to Wix customer service options list in future. However, if you are a VIP plan customer, you can have access to their VIP team, which can solve your issues instantly. If you want to have detailed insights into Wix Customer Support, you can check here

Business mail

When contemplating your professional appearance in the eyes of your existing customers—and more importantly, potential customers—everything should be considered, including your email address. Using a business email address with the domain name it such as info@mybusiness.com instead of using general Hotmail or Yahoo email, will enhance the professional appearance of your business, therefore attracting new customers and retaining existing ones.

Unfortunately, none of the Wix Premium Plans include an email address or mailbox for your website. You should purchase a mailbox separately. For an extra $4.08 a month, you can buy a personalized mailbox from G-Suite by Google, through Wix.

Multiple Websites

With Wix, you can create as many sites as you need under one single account. It is completely free to create multiple sites! Nevertheless, a Premium Plan is valid for one website only — meaning, for one premium plan you can connect one website to one custom domain.

Final Verdict

After putting to the test the various features, tools, and apps that Wix has to offer, I’ve got to admit that Wix is one of the best and most reliable website builders I’ve ever used. Nearly every step I took was smooth, reliable, and expertly guided.

When I compare the analysis this Wix Review to the other major online website building tools, Wix does appear to come out on top. So, yes, I may sound overly excited, but my enthusiasm is entirely justified. Professional themes, well-functioning drag-drop feature, useful app market, customer support forum with solutions for almost all practical issues, and an option to practically learn about all the features and functions of the Wix website builder using their free plan, made it easy for me to design a website. All this review is just my opinion on Wix. However, if you are looking for different perspectives on Wix,  you can scroll up to the top to see hundreds of Wix reviews from people who use Wix for blogging and commercial purposes.

Is Wix free? No, it isn’t. But like most other website builders, Wix offers new users the chance to try out their services and features for free. This free version, provided to anyone who signs up to the platform, includes full usage of Wix designs, 500 MB of storage, 1GB bandwidth, and free hosting. However, there are a couple of negatives while using Wix free plan. The sites created with the free version display a small bar in the top-right corner of the screen, advertising Wix. The free site’s URL also has following structure – “wixusername.wix.com/sitename”. But, overall, the free version has pretty much everything, if you are not worried about the branding issue.If you are looking for more advanced features, increased bandwidth, and storage, Wix has five different paid versions, with each version designed to suit the needs of diverse range of users. The following picture details all features provided in the various premium packages and their prices.  In addition to these, Wix website cost might go up, if you plan to integrate additional features from the Wix App Store. However, there are certain Wix promo codes that you could make use of, which can significantly lower the price of any Premium plan.

    I like the Wix functionality and the options for site elements. This is very good.

    I have however up until my last phone call…not felt as though the staff handling the customer service have been particularly supportive and helpful. I don’t know the gent’s name but the last gent I spoke to was the only one that thought to dive a little deeper on the issues I was experiencing. I had complained of a slow Editor on the wix platform a few times ..the Wix Editor was taking too long to edit elements, type words, resize images, generally the experience was and is still very delayed…we targeted many areas that could be causing the issue. Previous to my last call I felt as though the staff did not care to service my needs. I felt rushed off the phone as if the problem was all mine… It seemed like they were only willing to investigate as far as their “know-how” allowed them…we checked the speed of my internet, we tried clearing my cache, we tried using another computer with better processing power, we tried a different internet connection, I updated my browser…I am sure we tried other things…..but none of these customer service reps thought to look into my website and identify the fact that I had a lot of data heavy files and quite possibly this simple fact could be the cause of my delays…admittedly we do have a lot of photos etc. Now I have not actually removed or minimized my photos but I do feel this could very likely be a big part of the problem.

    It was also explained to me by an Apple employee that the Wix service is on a server and we as customers access this server and every time I make a change the entire system is reconfiguring and reloading..and these changes need to pass through the pipeline..naturally this is going to take longer especially if I have large files on my site….but then I began wondering if there is something Wix can do to enhance this performance so that even though I am accessing your servers and working remotely…can Wix not isolate the page I am accessing and have it so I only refresh that one page rather than my entire website each time I make a change…I am not a computer whiz so I am not sure I am fully understanding the issue..in any event my Wix platform is still very slow…and I even tried the best Mac at the mac store and still experienced the same delays…so it is either the amount of data I have on my site…or the Wix platform needs more horsepower…please tell me your thoughts.

    I have been a WordPress developer for well over a decade, and I have to admit that the Wix editor has done a lot of things correctly, and it has made building a Wix website something to consider in most cases. In fact, I’ve started recommending Wix over other solutions for the “do it yourselfers” who are interested in building their own website.

    The Wix editor is intuitive and easy to learn without needing to spend time learning technical lingo or any code. The vast array of options you get for making a layout, choosing fonts, colors, and more, make the editor a very powerful tool. I am amazed at how useful it really is. All of this is packed into a web-based editing tool that is quite responsive and quick for what it can do.

    There are a lot of SEO options you can use as well, which I have yet to really see the results of, but at least they are there.

    My only qualms about Wix is the price tag if you add any e-commerce/shopping cart features to it. You spend time making this beautiful website only to find out what you will need to pay to keep it. It can be a shocker unless you’ve researched it ahead of time. Still, this makes more sense for many people depending on the scenario, and paying a web designer can cost much more.

    I have been using Wix from last 4 years now and my experience has been incredibly good in term of editing the website like it’s just dragging and dropping and as far as support is concerned I faced no issues whatsoever. The entire platform is straightforward, and I didn’t need the help of support once.

    I chose Wix because it is a simple and easy to use website builder, where I could create my ideal website on my own, regardless my limited graphic skills, with a standard pc and in a short time. I previously used a web agency but I was not satisfied, while with Wix I could make my choices, add photos, videos, create content on my own, when I want, how I want. It’s flexible, perfect for my activity and with the right price.

    Sometimes it failed in updating or creating some new pieces and it is long to upload in administration mode.

    Another suggestion is the assistance: it provides only written standard feedback on questions or problems, while in some cases it would be better to speak with somebody whom to explain the specific issue.

    Wix is really a bit of a mixed bag. As someone who was setting up my first website, they seemed at first ideal. The price was reasonable and while there are a significant amount of add-ons required to make your website to a standard as you might expect, generally I felt as though I was getting good value for money. The ability for even an amateur like myself to create a highly sophisticated and professional looking website was far beyond my expectations and if it is aesthetics you’re after, Wix is up there with the best. The major downside however, comes down to social media sharing. It is not possible to create a unique twitter summary card for each page of your site which is a major drawback while Facebook posts also utilise the same image for each page of your website rather than a unique image for every page, which again, can become monotonous. Pinterest suffers from a separate problem in which the image for each page can be unique but it only likes back to your homepage rather than a particular post. If Wix manage to iron these problems out, I would be all too happy to stay with their service but honestly, these problems are too big to ignore and may result in them losing customers, myself included. Which is unfortunate because like I said, the visual element is superb.

    I’m really happy with Wix. I needed a drag and drop builder that allowed me to create simple, neat sites that convey information and look good and function properly. I don’t do anything fancy (though it seems that you can do a lot more with it than I can do), I just wanted to have my nice photos and videos and all the information I’m trying to convey there, and I didn’t want a steep learning curve as I have better things to do with my time. I have had issues with photo size and how they subsequently appear in the gallery, and I am still trying to resolve this. One other problem is that I’ve built my sites on my Mac (and checked the functionality on my iPhone and iPad) and I’ve noticed that it doesn’t appear quite the same on PCs. Overall highly recommend though if you’re in a similar position to me.

    I’ve been a hostage in website hell with so-called designers selling me on what they could do and then not deliver. I’ve paid out the nose for expertise and got no satisfaction whatsoever. Not to mention continual charges although I had all of my content ready. I’m okay with word press but its evolving so fast, and I just want my stuff put up beautifully, not have to become a webmaster to make that happen.

    I then decided to learn and do it for myself. I’ve tried many different platforms over the years and as a small business owner and consumer, I love WIX. I realize that these platforms are evolving and its got everything a small business needs including e-commerce/stores, password protected pages, membership capabilities, landing pages, light boxes, videos, audio, downloadable, and many other features such as their shout out emails and customer management system. Then there is their booking systems for setting appointments, multiple inboxes and emails, and other features. I got in the flow with their system and now I feel like a pro. I like the “get inspired” tab where I can see other actual live sites and get ideas from. When I think about the price of an outside email services and membership sites, WIX wins hands down.

    Although I’m not a web designer, I’ve built many sites for other people and have developed a fine set of skills which enables me to help others and empower them, and I think it is fantastic program. I prefer it over some of the others website builders (and I’ve tried several). The templates offer me maximum flexibility. It doesn’t matter which template I use, I can make changes and customize things on the spot.

    I recently ran into a girlfriend who was weeping and gnashing teeth over hassles and delays with her word press designer. Another hostage. My heart went out to her so I looked the site and then convinced her to let me recreate it for her with WIX just to prove it was possible. We sat together and I recreated an entire word press site that hadn’t been launched and you couldn’t be the wiser. It is beautiful and I did all of the things she wanted and more, and she watched it happen in two days. I was glad to be able to set another web hostage free from website hell with WIX and empower her with easy to use tools so she can make simple updates for herself.

    Now many of my family and friends look to me for support as they know their sites will be elegant and user friendly. More important, they can make updates and changes themselves. What else is there? WIX has my vote in a big way. Hostage no more with WIX!

    Amigos adorei o Wix, de fácil aprendizado e bastante simples de se construir um site, a maioria das instruções estão no próprio Wix, agora está melhor ainda nessa nova plataforma de construir sites que houve um grande avanço nessas melhorias, recomendo o mesmo, abraços.

    The best way I can describe how I feel about Wix is that I really like it, because I’m so used to it.

    I never use templates, but they look good enough. Contact forms look a bit unprofessional directly out of the editor.

    Wix does, however, offer a LOT of flexibility once you figure out how to get into it. A smidge of experience with other site builders have given me the impression of far less of that. An example would be that while unadvertised, any of Wix’s image elements support animated gifs – even hover buttons!

    In any event, from a technical standpoint, the editor lags quite a bit sometimes, and loading times on sites aren’t the best if you really fill’em up. I’m suffering from mild stockholm syndrome, I think.

    Wix is a very good solution for building a hassle free and scalable website with the latest features.

    I was looking for a website builder that doesn’t demand Albert Einstein’s IQ to make it work. I’m completely lost when it comes to website technology. And I am not ashamed of it. Let’s put it this way: If I want to move fast I prefer to use a car. Driving a car is simple. You open the door, turn the ignition key and put your foot on the throttle. It’s as simple as that. Publishing something on the Internet has to be the same sort of experience. I’m not interested in car or website manufacturing. I just want to move forward quickly. That’s exactly what WIX.com is about – moving forward quickly. If you are not Albert Einstein and have nevertheless something interesting to say, try WIX.com. I managed to publish two websites in no time. The other one is leisi.com. I was staggered when I looked at the results. Would you reckon that all this was done by an HTML idiot?

    There is one slight problem however. I once had a technical problem establishing a mail account. I have sent a message to WIX.com’s support team. I have never received an answer. Bad point for WIX.com there.

    I have 2 websites with Wix and have found them easy to use and flexible as far as formatting and changing . Price wise they are not the most reasonable , but are value for money in regards to ease for use.

    The Wix platform offers ease of use (you don’t have to be a “techie”) and a great selection of options for those without the “eye” for design. It’s pretty idiot-proof. With so many people hanging out a shingle and claiming to be web site developers/designers–and commanding top dollar–this offers an affordable DIY option and is user-friendly. It also allows for the ability to update your site yourself, without having to call in the cavalry–which is a PLUS when time is a commodity and your information constantly changes and numerous sections are continuously updated. As editor of a busy magazine and also, as a publicist, I know first impressions are paramount. I DO tend to judge a business by the appearance of their web site. It’s a shame that some of these people/businesses are paying exorbitant amounts of money for sub-standard web sites. I highly recommend Wix whenever someone asks, “Who did your web site?” and I say, “Me!”. If I had to find a chink in the armor, it would be in Wix’s Tech Support. Much of the time, when I run into a glitch, I have to figure it out for myself.

    I’ve used WIX since 2013 and I have three websites. I also build all my client’s websites on WIX. Recently WIX let me down badly, they shut my account because of a bank transaction dispute without any consultation with me whatsoever. It was a very stressful 24 hours and I was lucky to get my account back after it cost me AUD 281. WIX shutting down my blog would have destroyed me. The whole incident happened due to what I consider a flaw in the WIX billing system. For this reason, I am now looking at moving my blog to WordPress but I’ll keep my other websites on WIX. Apart from the incident above, WIX is easy to use, offers stock images for free, and have great templates, and I will continue to keep my smaller websites with WIX.

    The best way to discribe wix.com is that I started to recommend it to friends who never thought of an website but already convienced when they heard me and saw wix.com how its easy and flexable. some advices due to that most of my friends are Arabic speaking they are wellig to have the builder in Arabic as well in the future because not many of them speak other languages and this will open a door for wix.com in the Arabic world since not much options available so far accept WORD Press. and I hope you considere to enable more than one Blog on the website to resolve many limitation we face in creating flexable pages.

    Really Helpfull when you don’t know how to write in HTML or PHP.

    Abviously you can’t do EVERYTHING but almost and without write a code ? The interface is really good too. You can have some troubles sometimes but the support is reactive and this is still a “new” platform so no doubt that in a couple of year it would be perfect.

    I use it for 4 years now and I already saw a lot of improvement !

    I really enjoy using Wix. I love all the different features and stylistic options. It helps me create a beautiful website. It’s a bit clunky when having to change things around a bit, but I cannot complain. I found it to be the best platform out there.

    I have built a few websites using Wix and I have found them to be the most user friendly with the best selection of templates. Everything is very intuitive and really easy to figure out. The websites always look like a very expensive site built by a professional. I get compliments on them all the time!

    I appreciate that WIX offers a large variety of templates and is a very easy platform to use. They are continuously updating their templates to keep up with the current web designs which is definitely a plus. There are some limitations with using templates like IDX. All-in-all, this is a great tool to use to build your site.

    We use Wix for almost all our websites since it’s really easy to create a good-looking site in just a few minutes.

    Their plugins store is extremely small and not many free apps.
