How best to optimise my site



New Member
I work for Brickcraft Developments, we're a property development company but also have a joinery workshop (Brickcraft Bespoke) in Nottingham, which we are trying to promote online. We specialise in timber windows and doors but also make the occasional piece of furniture, but when you search for "timber windows nottingham" we're impossible to find.
We've got quite a simple website and I'm struggling to improve our Google ranking. It's a wix site and I've completed the wix suggestions and checked headings and alt text for images but it doesn't appear to have made a difference.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Wix has a bad rap in the SEO community and while they’re better, they’re still not good.

For one you can’t export your sites. This means when you decide to expand beyond the limits of Wix’s, which is rather easy to do like wanting to do more with SEO or add in an e-commerce, you’ll find the platform is lacking … so you’ll be wanting to leave. But then you’ll find that Wix doesn’t allow users to export their site to another platform, so you’ll need to scrape all the data, save it, move, and re-upload it.

And a lot of people that use Wix say the Googlebot has a hard time crawling Wix sites. If a page isn’t indexed ... for Google it’s worthless. It’s invisible, so there is no SEO value. To top it off Wix gave its clients bad SEO advice to justify the flaws in it’s platform, now that's someone I couldn’t trust!

Now that I’ve finished bad mouthing Wix, I’ll end with … you might want to get some links to the page your wanting to rank with the keywords your wanting to rank for in the anchor. Of course you need to mix it up so it doesn’t look like that's what your doing.

For example:

Write an original post for ...

  • Facebook
  • Tumblr
  • Twitter
  • Stumbleupon
  • Bizsugar
  • Bloukbe
  • Delicious
  • Linkedin
  • Storify
  • Triberr
  • Pinterest
Make all the content original and write the content so each piece adds to the next and link them together in that order and somewhere in the post put a link back to the page your wanting to rank for mixing up the keywords a bit with even a “click here”.
