Thanks Paul. Seems to be working as you told. Great! Leaves us with with loading performance (LCP) and visual stability (CLS). Are these problems beyond our control? Looks like it if we look at the 2 top issues GT metrix shows. Is it up to the SS developers team to finds solutions to save time with the eliminate render blocking resources and improves the efficient cache policy? Or can we optimise this ourselves?
LCP and CLS issues are the reason why Google shows a lightning bolt icon (first screenshot) behind our page results. And by clicking the pagelink Google shows the Google AMP-viewer (second screenshot) instead of our Squarespace site. This is killing for the lead experience. And leads even have to click ones more on the Google AMP-viewer before entering our Squarespace site. Bad Web Vitals are not only negatively influencing our organic search results (-30% m/m) but also killing the experience. We have followed all the guidelines for fast loading of content. GT metrix show the following 2 top issues in all off their reports (third screenshot): • Eliminate render-blocking resources • Serve static assets with an efficient cache policy There is nothing we can do about these issues. How can we move SS team to optimise the Web Vitals?
Site URL: https://happydrops.nl/ Dates in the SERPs have a bad impact on the click rate. I like to hide the publication date of the blog posts, within the Google search results. We use the Brine family (Brasil template) for our website. And it’s the 7.0 platform. On the summary blocks we made sure to hide the primary and secondary data. So there are no blog dates visible on our website. On the Design and Site Styles the settings the blog metadata settings are also for primary and secondary on None So all the possible settings for hiding the post meta data settings are switched off. And yet Google is showing our publication data in the search results as you can see below. Can anybody help us with hiding the blog post publication date in Squarespace so Google search results doesn’t show them anymore?
