Wix Editor: Changing Your Page URL

2 min read
Each page on your site has its own unique URL. If you change a page's URL, Wix creates an automatic 301 redirect, taking visitors and search engines from the old URL to the new one.

Use words related to the page's content to increase the chances of that page showing up in relevant search results. 

URL paths to avoid

When you change your site page URL, you should keep URL paths in mind. It's not possible to use certain URL paths for your pages, as they're used by Wix apps or reserved for SEO. 
Some examples of URL paths you should avoid for your pages are:
  • apps
  • _api
  • robots.txt
  • sitemap.xml
  • feed.xml
  • sites
  • events (when using the Wix Events app)
  • event-details (when using the Wix Events app)
If you try to use these URL paths, you'll see an error that the URL's unavailable.
