Wix SEO Setup Checklist: Adding or Updating Your Location

4 min read
When you set up your SEO Checklist, you'll be asked to add a location if your business serves customers in a physical location.
If you have a local business in a specific state, region, or city, or if you sell your products online to a specific region, you should use that location in your checklist. You should also add this location to your site's content. This will help your site get found locally in search results.

Updating your SEO Checklist's location

You can update your SEO Checklist's location if you need to change it. For example, if your business location changes and you update it in your site's content, you can update the location in your checklist to match it. 
If the location in your checklist does not match the location in the content of your site, you'll see a message in your checklist that you have not entered a location on your site. Update your checklist's location to match the location on your site.

  4. Enter your location as it is in your site's content under Location.
