Wix, the popular low cost web site builder tool, seems to be having issues with their web sites being indexed in Google. It seems like many web sites powered by Wix have recently been dropping out of the Google index.
There are dozens of threads in the Google Webmaster Help forums talking about this. Some date back as far as two weeks ago.
Google’s John Mueller mentioned about it this morning (14th Oct) saying Google has investigated the issue and they are working on resolving it on the Google end.

We are aware that when all you want is a website to gain more customers, website companies tend to baffle you with strange terms. We have decided to list a few of these terms which you may come across and explain them in plain English.
This is your website that is displayed for you and your customers to see. It has your text, logo and colours to attract your targeted audience.
This is the computer where your website is stored. It is permanently switched on and connected to the internet so that your customers can see your website 24 hours a day.
This is the name of your website that is unique and allows people to view it. An example is bbc.co.uk the name of the bbc website. When creating a new website it is important to chose a name that reflects your business, so that people can easily identify you. This name must be unique so that it can’t be used by anyone else.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
It is a method which allows Google and Bing to understand your site. This is essential to allow your customers to find your site as most internet users use a search engine to find information they are looking for.
Social Media Marketing
This is basically reaching your customers through Facebook, Twitter and Google+ by adding posts about your company, products or special offers. Using social media for marketing can enable business to further their reach to more customers.

When a device accesses the internet it sends details to the site on its screen size. Our new websites use this information to send a web page to the device which fits its screen size.
With so many different devices with different screen sizes, this is essential to ensure your website is displayed correctly. Google now checks your site to see if it is responsive, if it is your site will be rated higher on its search engine.
