💻 Performance
In my personal use of wix sites, image loading is exceptionally slow
Takes time for certain template changes and element changes to be reflected
With multiple collaborators, the editor becomes laggy and unresponsive (tested on M1 MacBook Pro)
Performance of AI-based web-building, using OpenAI's GPT model is quite fast
Ocassionally glitches when undoing and redoing changes made on the site
Takes some time to get the website ready for 'exporting'
Seamless flow between editing and view mode, there is no exporting process
Works falwlessly with multiple collaborators on one page, changes are reflected instantly
Photos are capped at a limit, but they load instantly
Editor never crashed, likely due to the simple and fast nature of SlashPage
Themes are applied instantly, without a delay. This is because the themes apply to main buttons, which are not integral to the website's function
Undo and redo works instantly, without glitching the editor
CONCLUSION: SlashPage wins!
🌐 SEO Tools, Tracking
SEO is unforuntately not available for free users. You will need to purchase a paid plan to make your page discoverable on the web.
According to wix.com, "To connect to Google Search Console, you must have a Premium plan and a domain connected to your site. This can be either a domain purchased from Wix or a domain purchased from another domain host."
With the paid plan, SEO works great!
Once the privacy setting of page is set public, the page is instantly SEO-friendly.
For completely free, regardless of whether there is a custom domain connected
You can also make clean links, and make sub-pages discoverable by SEO!
