Google and WIX website

Hello everyone,
Sorry if this is not the best place to ask, but it's hard to know what is correct or false when I search for information. So I thought I'd ask this forum, some expert may be able to help me.

I am looking to create my own website, I am thinking of using WIX, but I have read that google does not like these sites and it ranks poorly for SEO and so other issues that google has with WIx.

I know wordpress is good, but it's more complicated to get started.

Are the myths about WIX real?

thanks

ash

Hi Ash
WIX websites work fine in search. There are a lot of different setups for new websites. I wouldn't focus too much on a single provider, but rather think about the bigger picture: which will make it easiest for you to maintain your site (adding / changing content)? If you're getting help from others for your site, is there one that they have experience in, which might make it easier / cheaper? Which one offers the features that you think you'll need in the mid-term? There are probably a few options that could work for you, so maybe it makes sense to just try some of them out and see which one works best for you  -- websites are websites for Google :).

Cheers & good luck with your new site!
John

Hi John! What do you say to this is the case:

1. site 1 year old archicgi . com
2. almost no text on the page
3. This site have very very massive spam backlink profile (forum profiles, spam comments, spam forum comments) don't have articles backlinks - only spam links!!! 

 Site have many - many TOP positions on search ( 1 , 2 top positions
at the same time)   !!!! Super! Yes?

So my question - how your algorithms work? how work you spam team? is there any sense -works on the site - create high-quality content?
and why do it ? -if possible to register spam links and the site will be in the top!!!!
