What is the contest all about
The Wix SEO Battle is an SEO contest where unusually only two competitors are battling it out to rank highest for the search term WIX SEO. The imputus for this, and this is debatable, is that WIX is no good for SEO and there is (as is common in the SEO industry) a lot of speculation but relatively little actually fact based research on the topic. There are some exceptions and we will list them below in the resources section.
Who is in the contest
As mentioned there are the WIX SEO Lovers and the WIX SEO Haters.
The lovers site is run by our friends at Marie Haynes Consulting. The haters site is built by liquid.
Whats up for grabs
There is $25K up for grabs to the winner.
When does it conclude
The contest rules state "On December 19th , 2019, at 12:00 PM (noon) ET Moderator will search the query "Wix SEO" via Google Search NYC, New York, via desktop, using Chrome Browser, Incognito mode"
So, whoe ever is ranking top out of the two sites for Wix SEO on December 19th will win the contest.
There is much talk about which CMS / web building platform is best for SEO. We prefer a fully purist view where we build as light as possible HTML with no fancy back end system. However, that is not for everyone and at the end of the day what is returned to the browser is still HTML however it ends up that way. There are certainly some platform quirks and potential challenges but they are certainly not insumountable.
We will see who comes out on top on December 19th. This is a battle of SEOs and a battle for WIX SEO.
