Why Is My Wix Site Not Showing Up?


Launching a new website on Wix can be an exciting step towards establishing your online presence. However, it can be frustrating when you realize that your Wix site isn't showing up in search results or even when you directly enter the URL. This article aims to demystify this common issue and offer practical solutions to get your Wix site visible and accessible.


Common Reasons for Invisibility

Newly Created Site

One of the most common reasons for a site not showing up immediately is its newness. Search engines like Google take time to crawl and index new websites. If your site is brand new, it may just be a matter of time before it starts appearing in search results. To speed up the index process I recommend creating an account on Google Console and submitting your website sitemap >


Indexing Delays on Google

Indexing Delays

Even if your site isn't brand new, search engines occasionally take time to update their index. Changes made on your site might not be immediately visible due to these indexing delays. Submit a sitemap via Google Console can again speed this up.
