Test your WIX site with Google Webpage Speed and you'll see what I mean.
Been there done it. It's not bad at all. 98/100 on desktop. I need to fix the mobile, but when I made the site mobile was secondary to desktop...now it's flipped so I need a bit of work to speed it up. But it's still possible with WIX.

I just ran yours and your desktop was 76/100 and your mobile is 64/100. So my WIX site desktop is far faster than yours and my mobile scored 14 points less than yours. Looks like it's time to roll up your sleeves and catch up.

Re: Website Help?


Why the lying and bull****ting dude, here's a link to your TNT services site showing way lower performance than you are alluding too. You're site is a Grandma on speed. Here's the link from the test I just ran on your 'about' page. It sucks ass thanks to WIX. You get a 47 on mobile and a 78 on desktop.

https://developers.google.com/speed/...!about%2Fc1enr

And here's the link to your main page:
https://developers.google.com/speed/...ervices.com%2F

I'm a pro at this you can't bull**** me.

You're styling looks like 1999 by the way. It takes about 20 full seconds to load your index page on my phone here in Colorado and you can't click on your phone number and dial on an iPhone 6. You need a web developer ASAP.

The first time I ran it it was 50/100 for mobile and 98/100 for desktop. No lying, no bullchit...it's what it said. Sorry that you are butt hurt that you spent a lot of time to get a site that is slower than WIX but don't take it out on me. Maybe you should spend 2 days a week on it.

Those are the results that I can live with. It comes at the price of custom animations, styling, responsiveness, buttons to txt and make phone calls. Yours is a static page. Yours should be 100%, but WIX doesn't give you that unless you pay $80 a month. Google 'WIX reviews' so you don't just have to listen to what I have to say, after all you are the big winner here.

Talk about bullchit. My so called grandma speed site is faster than yours yet yours is better? You said speed was the main factor in your decision to move away from WIX. If you can live with your speeds I certainly can live with mine...especially since they are faster than yours.

Most WIX negative WIX reviews are a few years old or the web admin doesn't know how to use the tools that they give you.

I still am giggling over my grandma speeds yet yours is slower. I'm going to chuckle about that one for awhile.

I didn't say speed was the main factor, but just one of many factors. Another factor is, what are you going to do when it's time to improve your site? You have no access to the HTML, CSS, and Javascript with WIX. So you are forever stuck with WIX. Also, have you ever looked at your site on a mobile devise? It looks bad. I'm taking time out of my day to help you and at this point a thank you is in order. I was born in IL and left because you and your Grandma and all the other assholes there are stuck in a cave that you'll never see the light of day in.

LOL, you are a trip. Yeah, Chicago is such a backwards place...you are a riot.

You said that speed was the reason. Nothing else. Talk about lying.

As far as being stuck with WIX, that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's not an advanced site building service. I never claimed it was. But it is a great way for a company to get a site up in a day. A site that can look fairly decent. A site that you can optimize and change very easily. My SEO isn't that great, but I have also not spent that much time on it, I don't need to. I have enough coming in by word of mouth.

I have always said that when you start a site you need to define what it is you want out of it. It is clear that you want leads leads leads. Some want presence only. Some want information only. They all serve their purpose. WIX isn't the answer for everyone, but for the ease of use and price it can't be beat for the start up or first time site builder.

Some how you got on the track that I was saying that it was better than other options or better than your advice. What I am saying is that it's an option. And a good one if it meets your needs.

You can't see is past your investment and knowledge. It's given you blind spots for the needs of others. Are you helping, sure, to some extent, but your close mind on other options is muddying up your assistance.

Calling me a liar and saying what I was post was BS, when it wasn't, also doesn't help. It only shows that you are so stuck in your ways and partial to your advice that you are not willing to listen to others and even look down on other choices. My suggestion is to get over your ego and listen.

$80 bucks a month isn't squat...is it? I mean you pay more than that in just the time you spend on your site. Why is it a bad thing to pay for better service.

Re: Website Help?


If someone wants leads from their site then I would have to say wordpress would be where to look, or html with a WP blog attached.

If someone wants a photo album then wix is fine.

Ive never heard of wix's sites being valuable for serp dominance.

You cant say they have good seo tools if none of their sites ever show up in the serps.

Yes. They run my site. I'm not sure if that's the right word, because I actual run the site and control all of the content. It was cheap but it works for me

Well people find me on Google and I have at least 10 requests for quotes a week and that is with little effort into the SEO tools they offer. I have only listed some key words. That's how I can say that they have decent SEO tools.

So you are hearing it now. Consider yourself educated.

It may not be serp dominance but I just did a serp check on my WIX site...#10 for Naperville Remodeling Contractor and #18 for Naperville Bathroom Remodel. Again, that's with no real effort.
