There are lots of opinions out there about Wix SEO. Some people love it, some hate it. But it’s hard to overlook how dedicated Wix is to helping business owners get their websites found online.
There are no shortcuts when it comes to SEO – it’s an ongoing challenge. But Wix isn’t afraid of challenges. In fact, they encourage them.
That’s why they spent this past year consulting with SEO experts to bridge the gaps and create tools for a more professional user base.
And now, they want SEO agencies and experts to put their advanced SEO tools to the test.
This time, Wix is hosting an SEO Battle between Wix SEO Lovers and Haters and they’re offering up a tempting prize: $25,000.
So, pick a side and step up to battle. Because for this leading cloud-based web design and development platform, SEO is a battle worth fighting.
Put Wix SEO to Test & You Could Win $25K
Wix wants you to test out their new, advanced SEO tools in an SEO battle for $25,000.
So How Does It Work?
Over the next few weeks, Wix will work with SEO and social media marketing expert Lukasz Zelezny to select two SEO agencies to battle for the query “Wix SEO.”
One team will battle as “Wix SEO Lovers” and the other team will battle as “Wix SEO Haters”.
Once the two teams are chosen, the “Lovers” will create a Wix website and use the advanced SEO tools from Wix to try ranking higher on Google. The “Haters” will create their website on any other (non-Wix) platform and use their own SEO tools.
The team that ranks higher on Google for the query “Wix SEO” will win $25,000. The losing team will get $10,000.
The battle between the two chosen teams will take place over 6 months, starting June 26 and ending December 19 at noon ET.
How Are the 2 Teams Being Chosen & Judged?
The teams will be chosen by SEO keynote speaker, social media marketing expert, author and top 10 UK marketing influencer, Lukasz Zelezny. He’s worked in the SEO industry for the last 15 years, spoken at SEO conferences across the globe, and been featured in Forbes, Wired Magazine, Search Engine Land, and more.
The agencies will be chosen based on the following criteria:
- Google ranking
- Years of experience
- Online presence
- Online reviews
- Technical skill set
- Quality of content
- Number of clients
Once the two teams are selected and the battle begins, Wix will publish weekly updates on the main Wix SEO Battle website for anyone who’s interested in staying up to date.

Hyperlocal SEO with Dynamic Pages
With the release of Corvid by Wix, an open dev platform, SEO experts can create hundreds of dynamic SEO-friendly pages, each with a unique URL.
Dynamic pages open up a world of opportunities for Wix users, and are particularly useful for creating hyperlocal content.
You can tailor similar types of content for specific neighborhoods, cities, teams, services, articles and more. Content can be categorized and updated from a database collection. A valuable asset for any growing business that wants to quickly generate more content on their website.
