Google Working On Fixing Problem With Wix Websites Not Showing Up In Search Results
Recently, Wix Web pages have been dropping out of the Google index. Google said they are working on resolving the issue.
There are reports that Wix websites are currently not being indexed and ranked by Google. Wix is a popular website building platform used by many smaller businesses and professionals to build their Web presence.
The issue seems to have cropped up about two weeks ago, but today, Google has confirmed there is an issue. Google’s John Mueller said they are working on the Google end to bring the Wix Web pages back into the index.
John said in a support thread, “[W]e’re working on resolving things here on our side in the meantime.” “One thing that you might notice is that we’ll be recrawling these sites a bit faster to get the dropped pages back into the index a bit faster,” John Mueller added.
John said that Google’s team has taken an “in-depth look at the setup on these sites” and is working to fix it on the Google indexing end.
It seems like the best bet for any one using a Wix website is to just wait it out. Google seems to have expedited the re-indexing of these websites, and it seems you should see your Web pages return in the Google index fairly soon.
You can keep track of your index count in the Google Search Console. But John Mueller asked that you keep Google up-to-date on your Wix indexing issues in this support thread.
