Whatever you're hoping to achieve with your website, Google can help. A lot of people don't know how to get their Wix websites into Google, but it's actually pretty simple. There are some things you'll need to do to get your site in Google and make sure that it's easily discoverable by potential visitors.
Not sure how to get your Wix site in Google?
The answer is yes, you can. If your site is being indexed by Google, it will appear in search results.
However, there are a couple of steps to take that will get your website more visibility and improve its ranking:
Create a sitemap for your site. This helps Google index all pages on your website so that they show up more quickly in search results.
Use keywords effectively throughout each page on the site (this applies to all websites).
To get your Wix website into Google, you’ll need to:
Sign up for a Google Search Console account and verify your site.
Configure an XML sitemap on the Wix website builder and submit it through Search Console. A sitemap is a list of all of the pages on your site that allows search engines like Google to crawl more efficiently and quickly find new content.
Make sure that all of the pages on your website are accessible by search engines (not blocked by robots.txt or “noindex" tag). If a page is inaccessible due to one of these reasons, it will not be indexed by Google .
Register on Google Search Console and verify your Wix site.
Once you’ve verified your site, you can start optimizing it for Google Search.
To do this, first make sure that you have a Wix-hosted website.
Configure and submit your XML sitemap.
To get your free Wix website on Google, you'll first need to configure and submit your XML sitemap. An XML sitemap is a file that contains a list of all the pages in your website. It helps search engines find your pages much faster because they don't have to crawl through every page individually. It also gives you some insight into how Google views your site and how other search engines view it.
Add alt text to all images.
The alt text is an image’s description. Essentially, it provides a brief summary of what the image shows and should be added to every image on your website.
The alt text is used by screen readers and search engines to describe images. Also, social media sites like Facebook use alt text to display images in their newsfeeds (which are usually very small). Because of this, it’s important that you add as much relevant information as possible into your images’ alt tags so that they can be properly understood by all types of users who visit your site!
Submit a copy of the site map to help Google index the site quicker and refine the crawl rate so that it’s not too agressive.
Now you’ve got your website built, it’s time to submit a copy of the site map to help Google index the site quicker and refine the crawl rate so that it’s not too agressive.
You can ensure that your site is visible in Google and improve its ranking.

It’s important to remember that Google is a powerful tool and can be used in many ways, such as creating backlinks or writing guest posts on other websites. The key is to find out what will work best for you before deciding which approach to use when getting your website noticed.
