In regards to core web vitals, which is collection of user experience speed metrics, the information is clear that Wix sites outperform popular services like WordPress.
What’s new is that Wix consumers can now exercise overall control of every page but from a single place, making it really simple to
update a website. New Wix SEO Settings The Wix SEO settings does two main things from one settings page:

One concern I had was, what if you customized code structured data and Google later on updates their structured data requirements for qualifying for rich snippets?
Einat Hoobian-Seybold, SEO Product Lead at Wix answered that concern:
“When a user is modifying or including brand-new structure data by hand, it overrides the Wix defaults, however users can reset back to initial defaults and be totally qualified for all of the predefined ones at any time.
In any case, Wix has validation on the structured data so if a user is missing out on a needed field due to the fact that of the modifications they made or Google made, the user will get an alert about it.”
This new performance is presently offered in English and will present to other languages later on.
Wix explains how the brand-new SEO settings work:
“It is available from the SEO Tools area in the Dashboard, to EN users and will be gradually be presented to other languages.
Users are supplied with a report of all their site’s meta tags in one location, for main pages and item pages.
They can click each page to open an editing panel, and tailor the meta tags, URL slug, index status, structured information markup and more for the selected page.”
The feature is presently available for primary pages and product pages.
According to Wix:
“The brand-new Wix SEO Settings tool enables users to examine and edit their meta tags for each page, along with their URL slug, indexability, open graph tags, structured data markup, robotics meta tags and much more– all from one place in the Wix Dashboard.
