Which one is better Wordpress or Wix?

by 9 replies
Hi everyone, i have been using wix for a while and its been quite good to me, had no real issues with it.

I have been told by lots of people i should switch over to Wordpress as the SEO is better for ranking...is this true?

I wanted to start a website promoting Music Artist (Videos) is it best i go for a Blog style website to give it a different look or do i stick to a normal video layout website?

I feel wordpress has huge potential but it looks very limited. I have gone through most of the interface and you can barely do anything to your website but change fonts, logo, background and thats it. The themes are nowhere near as good as Wix Free themes. I was told Wordpress is free also but how can it be when you need to sign up to a monthly hosting.

can anyone help with which idea i should go for..?

Thanks

    Wix pretty much sucks for SEO. So badly that they have been having a contest this year to improve that perception. They are failing at it pretty badly.

    If you want to switch to Wordpress, you will need a website hosting account.

    All of that being said, if I were you I probably would just forget about SEO anyhow. Unless you have a very specialized niche, you are never going to rank against all the big sites in the music industry. You are better off going through social media to try to get attention.

    *facepalm*....Wordpress is far more customizable...look at how many free and premium themes and plugins there are. Don't like any, you can code your own. Wix is also NOT YOURS. Your Wordpress site is. SEO? Wordpress all the way.

    Can't comment on Wix but I've always liked Wordpress. I've heard really good things about Squarespace as well if that one ever goes into the running for ya

    I haven't had much experience with Wix but a lot with WP so I recommend WP but choose the (dot) org, NOT (dot) com where you have no control.

    However, if you're not serious about what you're doing, then you can use Wix or the free WordPress options.
