Like most website owners, you are likely trying to attract visitors. Getting traffic from major search engines such as: Google, Bing and Yahoo is the name of the game when it comes to organic web traffic. In my personal opinion, if you are going for organic web traffic, the creme de la creme is a visitor that found your website through Google search. You are probably asking yourself why this guy thinks that is one of the ultimate pieces of traffic, and you would be justified in doing so. However, let me plead my case. So, when it comes to web traffic, you have several different forms. You can have direct search traffic; which is when someone searches for your website directly. You can have referral traffic; which is when your website was referred by someone else or some other platform. Finally, not the last type of traffic, but the one you should love is just Google search traffic. If someone types a keyword pertaining to your business into Google and lands on your website, it is hot traffic. The reason for this is because if that person is searching a keyword that relates to your business, they are actively seeking your niches expertise. Now, there are many different methods to drive traffic to your website, but we will cover one of the newest Wix has offered us.
Over the years, Wix websites were known to not get good web traffic, because Wix did not build a great platform to get found on Google. Today, that couldn't be further from the truth. Wix continues to add new SEO (Search Engine Optimization) resources all the time. Before I announce and walk through one of Wix's newest SEO creations, I want you to know that this is only one method of driving traffic to your website and to be successful, you should be using several.
