  1. @GlynMusica I appreciate your input. I am pretty well-versed on how canonicals work and I understand your point. Google may be able to figure it out themselves in terms of crawling and indexing. Or the may not, which is the case with my site - it's actually currently indexing the http nonsecure version of the home page URL (so http:// without the /home - so a whole different scenario and not a good one since https is preferred by search engines and customers alike). However from a search engine rankings perspective, there are several issues with the way Squarespace uses the home page URL. I won't go into all of them here, but essentially you are splitting rankings signals between multiple pages with identical content. I would be happy to explain this further if you need more details, but it sounds like you don't know of a custom solution to fix this - which is what I'm looking for. Thanks though!
  2. This is a huge issue. I am an SEO with 8 years of experience so I have some idea of what I'm talking about. Google is indexing multiple versions of my home page at the moment. Not to mention the conflicting signals this sends when you have a page with a canonical tag pointing to another page that isn't listed in the sitemap. The ideal solution would be that the home page lives on / instead of /home... Also - @GlynMusica I looked into the redirect solution and it won't work since these are all active pages. There's got to be a way to fix this. Any ideas?
