  1. Hi @ChelseaBPhoto, I'm happy to help. I understand your concern. Below, I've added a few methods in the below that might be helpful: If all the old posts belong to a single category, you can hide (noindex tag) the entire category from search results. Open your website > Click blog settings > Click SEO > Hide from search engine result > All pages in this collection. For a better understanding, you can check this screenshot: https://prnt.sc/SCcsL9JhlCTK. For individual pages, you can manually add a "no index" tag. Navigate to each blog post. Click on the SEO tab in the page settings. Toggle the "Hide page from search results" option. For a better understanding, you can check this screenshot: https://prnt.sc/Zn1-ZpLCecKC. Please note that the code injection method, which involves adding <meta name= "robots" content= "noindex">, is available in Business and Commerce plans. Code: <meta name="robots" content="noindex"> Resources: Exclude a specific page from search results I hope these methods are helpful. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  2. Hi - @mhuk01, Happy to help. Below, I've added a few solutions that might be helpful: If this is a new website, it's common for newly published websites to take some time to appear in search results.

    Robots TXT File

    Hi- @AH2 I’m happy to help you. Below, I’ve added a few potential solutions that might be helpful: Squarespace doesn't allow us to edit robots.txt files. Your homepage URL slug, canonical is perfect, and the sitemap is optimal. Ensure your meta description is 150-160 characters long and includes the main keyword you want to rank for. Check out this video: How to Edit and Optimize Meta Description Ensure your SEO titles are 50-60 characters long - this is optimal for displaying on search engines. Check out this video: How to Edit and Optimize SEO Titles in Squarespace. If this is a new website, it's common for newly published websites to take some time to appear in search results. You can submit your sitemap to Google Search Console so that Google can discover your pages efficiently.

  5. Hi - @kellyetz, I'm happy to help you. It would be appreciated if you could send me the URLs of your website pages. This will enable me to identify the issue more accurately and provide you with a suitable solution. Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  6. Hi @Design2Deploy, I am happy to help! Below, I've provided some potential insights that might be helpful: In Squarespace, by default, all links added to your website are "do-follow." This means search engines will follow these links and consider them when assessing the relevance and authority of the linked page. If you want to make a link "no-follow" on Squarespace, you'll need to add a rel=nofollow attribute to the link. Unfortunately, Squarespace's built-in link editor doesn't allow us to add the rel="nofollow" attribute directly. To make a link "nofollow" in Squarespace, you can follow these steps: Add code blog on your content page, you can add the following code: <p> Your text here <a href="https://example.com" rel="nofollow">anchor text</a> Your text here </p> After adding the rel="nofollow" attribute, save your changes. Resource: https://readysetjetset.net/squarespace-no-follow-link/ I hope these insights are helpful. If you have any further questions. Please feel free to ask. Thank you, Sadul Sifat.
  7. Hi - @MarieD, I am happy to help! The "discovered, not indexed" notification usually means that Google has crawled your blog pages but hasn't indexed them yet. Below, I've provided some potential insights that might be helpful: You can use the URL Inspection Tool on Google Search Console to send indexing requests for blog URLs. Google Search Console: https://youtu.be/WAjd9B7whgY?si=v_r0vtRHtv74-p1o After submitting the indexing request, you can verify whether Google has indexed your page. If you find that your blogs are still not indexed, here are some additional insights to consider: Focus on Quality Content: Ensure your blog content is high-quality, valuable, and relevant to your target audience. Google prioritizes content that provides real value to users. Internal Linking: Keep internally linking your blog posts to other relevant pages on your website. Internal linking helps Google discover and index your content more efficiently. Please Check out this article: What Is Link Building and Why Does It Matter in 2024? Implement Schema Data Markup: You can add schema to your blog post. This can enhance the visibility of your pages in search results. For example: FAQ schema, Article Schema, Arthur Schema. Remember that indexing can take time, especially for new content. Keep an eye on your Google Search Console regularly for updates on indexing status and continue optimizing your website for better visibility. You will find the full Squarespace SEO checklist here and If you prefer to receive personalized recommendations on your website, check out SEOSpace. I hope these insights are helpful. If you have any further questions. Please feel free to ask. Thank you, Sadul Sifat.

  9. Hi @Stratus, Thanks for sharing the screenshots. I'm happy to help. Your code needs some modifications. Please remove the codes you added and add the following instead (please do not alter anything). /services -> /document-destruction 301 /contact-us -> /contact 301 The above code should work. Please test the code and feel free to get back here if you need further assistance. Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  10. Hi - @NathanaelWard, I am glad to know that you successfully removed the built-in Squarespace domain. Hopefully, you implemented the solutions I provided in your first post.

If you want your site to appear on Google search based on search terms "Warren Brown Pagosa" or "Warren Brown County Commissioner," you can follow this checklist: Finetune your site settings.

  11. Hi- @dgaebel, I understand your concern. Below, I've added some potential solutions that might be helpful: This is a common concern; Google sometimes prefers to generate its meta descriptions based on the content of the page and the user's search query. Even if you have specified a meta description in the backend of your site, Google may choose to display a different snippet if it believes it's more relevant to the user's query. While you can't control Google's algorithm, you can optimize your meta descriptions to be descriptive, relevant, and compelling, increasing the likelihood that Google will use them. You can keep your meta description within 150-160 characters and include the primary keyword you want to rank for; the latter will help you with the CTR. Guidance: How to Edit and Optimize Meta Description: https://youtu.be/NeweiQFqGWs?si=eHBswz84zMT6jhPf Use the URL Inspection Tool on Google Search Console to perform live tests for all the URLs and submit indexing requests while doing the live tests.

  12. Hi @Stratus, Thank you for your response. Below, I've added potential solutions that you can implement: First, please add 301 redirections using the URL Mappings tool on the Squarespace dashboard. Do this for all the wrong URLs you can see on the search results, as those pages no longer exist on your website. Please watch this video to see how to add the 301 redirections. Format: /OLD-URL -> /NEW-URL 301 Examples: /services -> /NEW-URL 301 /schedule-appointment -> /NEW-URL 301 /contact-us -> /NEW-URL 301 This will redirect you from the wrong URL to the new/correct URL, and Google will drop the wrong URLs gradually from the search results. Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  13. Hi - @Theo4543, I can help you with your current situation. Below, I've provided some potential insights that might be helpful: It appears that you haven't added a meta description to your page. As a result, Google is generating meta descriptions manually based on your page content. To improve this, you can add a meta description to your page. Ensure your meta description is 150-160 characters long and include the primary keyword you want to rank for. Use the URL Inspection Tool on Google Search Console to perform live tests for all the URLs and submit indexing requests while doing the live tests. It will help refresh the data in the search results. URL Inspection Tool: https://youtu.be/Pe_-TkdbXN0 Google Search Console Guide (+ Tips & Tricks): https://youtu.be/WAjd9B7whgY Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  14. Hi- @Stratus Happy to help! Could you please provide a detailed description of your situation? This will allow me to understand your issue clearly and offer you the best possible solution. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  15. Hi - @scottgoodfriend I'm pleased to help you with this issue. Here are some potential solutions that might be helpful: Unfortunately, it's not possible to add alt text directly to a video or embed a video’s custom featured image manually on Squarespace. However, you can implement a workaround by using custom code. Here's how you can do it: Edit page > Add Section > Add code block > Add your custom code > Save Suggested code solution: <div id="custom-video-container" style="cursor: pointer; position: relative; width: 560px; height: 315px;" onclick="playCustomVideo()"> <img src="YOUR_CUSTOM_IMAGE_URL" alt="ALT_TEXT_HERE" style="width: 100%; height: auto;"> <svg style="position: absolute; top: 50%; left: 50%; transform: translate(-50%, -50%); width: 68px; height: 48px; cursor: pointer;" viewBox="0 0 68 48" aria-label="Play" title="Play"> <path class="ytp-large-play-button-bg" d="M66.52,7.74c-0.78-2.93-2.49-5.41-5.42-6.19C55.79,.13,34,0,34,0S12.21,.13,6.9,1.55 C3.97,2.33,2.27,4.81,1.48,7.74C0.06,13.05,0,24,0,24s0.06,10.95,1.48,16.26c0.78,2.93,2.49,5.41,5.42,6.19 C12.21,47.87,34,48,34,48s21.79-0.13,27.1-1.55c2.93-0.78,4.64-3.26,5.42-6.19C67.94,34.95,68,24,68,24S67.94,13.05,66.52,7.74z" fill="#f00"></path> <path d="M 45,24 27,14 27,34" fill="#fff"></path> </svg> </div> <script> function playCustomVideo() { var container = document.getElementById('custom-video-container'); container.innerHTML = '<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/YOUR_VIDEO_ID?autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>'; } </script> Note: You need to add the source image, YouTube video ID, and alt text to this code. I have indicated where to make these additions. Please review the code accordingly. You can change the iframe width and height size. If you require further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask. Best regards, Sadul Sifat
  16. Hi - @KaysiDK It would be appreciated if you could share your website dashboard screenshot with me. This will enable me to identify the issue more accurately and provide you with a suitable solution. Thanks, Sadul Sifat
  17. Hi @ClaireThi I understand your concern. Let me help you out here. It seems your website doesn't load on the HTTPS version, and that's why you're seeing this warning. To solve this issue, activate the SSL certificate from the Squarespace dashboard. To activate the SSL certificate, follow these steps: Dashboard > Settings > Developer tools > SSL (see an example here) For a better understanding, you can watch this YouTube video. Feel free to reach out if you need further clarification. Regards, Sadul Sifat
  18. Hi - @benanders I understand your concern. Could you please share the site's URL with me? This will enable me to identify the issue and provide an accurate solution. Best regards, Sadul Sifat.
  19. Hi- @ps_michael I understand your concern. Let me help you with this matter. Here are a couple of potential insights that might help you: I checked the Squarespace official document and didn't find any related reason for domain changes (you can check it here). Is your custom domain set up as the primary domain? If not, you can make your custom domain the primary domain (you can check this resource). Did you make any changes to the DNS settings? This could trigger this issue. Unfortunately, Squarespace does not permit us to edit sitemap and robots.txt files, so we cannot make any manual changes. If you require further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  20. Hi - @NathanaelWard Here are a few things that should help out. Step One: Remove the built-in domain from the search result Did you change the built-in domain that is currently indexed on Google? You can tell Google to remove this https://jellyfish-glockenspiel-65pb.squarespace.com/ from the search result if you still own the built-in domain. You can edit your built-in domain to make it look exactly like the old one. Here's the guideline (you can try it and check if it works). The process of removing the old domain from Google: Connect the "built-in domain" with Google Search Console and verify the ownership. (this is an important part, as we want to remove the built-in domain). Check these resources (video tutorial, official document). Submit a URL removal request for the entire domain (built-in domain in this case) via Google Search Console, and Google will remove it from the index and search results. Google Search Console's screenshot: https://prnt.sc/TbkdDzLpeXK0 Removals in Google Search Console: https://youtu.be/h223mCgbmf4 Step Two: Focus on the new domain Now, if you can't implement the step one, here's what you need to focus on. I can see only the homepage is currently indexed on Google. To provide Google with more data about your website: Add the sitemap of the new domain on Google Search Console (here's a tutorial) Use the URL inspection tool on Google Search Console, run live tests for the other URLs on the website one by one, and send indexing requests. Optimize the new website for SEO, which will help you rank for those target keywords on search results. You can use SEOSpace if you want to. If you require further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  21. Hi - @360GSS_UK, I understand your concern. Could you please share the page URL with me? This will enable me to identify the issue and provide an accurate solution. Best regards, Sadul Sifat.
  22. Hi - @Ellllla I understand your concern. Let me help you out here. Here are a couple of potential solutions: Unfortunately, on Squarespace, you can’t implement the 410 status code. URL Mappings only allow us to implement 301 and 302 status codes. How to Set Up 301 Redirects in Squarespace: https://youtu.be/XkFcD9EukBY?si=OPr_2PVcTFwi1qCu To take care of the deleted pages: Remove all the internal links (if you have any) to those pages so that Google doesn’t crawl them. Submit URL removal requests for the deleted pages via Google Search Console, and Google will remove those pages from the index and search results. Google Search Console's screenshot: https://prnt.sc/TbkdDzLpeXK0 Removals in Google Search Console: https://youtu.be/h223mCgbmf4 These steps should aid in effectively removing the URLs of permanently deleted pages from Google's search results. If you require further clarification or assistance, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, Sadul Sifat.
  23. Hi @glassworks, I can help you out here with this situation. Below, I've added some potential solutions to help you out: If you want to go ahead with the new domain (.org.uk), first you need to take care of the old one (.com). In this case, redirecting the old domain to the new one would be the best solution. Let me know what your old domain is hosted on, and I can share a guide for this. However, here are some insights to consider: How much traffic does the old domain bring in? Is it significant? List the pages that bring you traffic, and then you can add manual redirections from the old URL to the new URL on the new domain. If the old domain doesn’t bring much traffic, you can redirect the old domain to the new one from the domain registrar without thinking about the pages. In this case, all the old URLs will be redirected to the homepage of the new domain.

Let me know what your old domain is hosted on, and I can share a guide for this. To make the process faster on Google, you can send a URL removal request using Google Search Console to remove the old domain from the index.

  24. Hi @Deepak0706, I understand your challenge here - this isn't something we've specifically done before - Squarespace doesn’t natively support UTM parameters. However, we've done some research and found some potential resources that might help: You might consider using a third-party tool like Attributer. It can help you achieve your goal. Here’s another helpful resource that may help you achieve this. It talks about replacing utm_source with sqf_source to pass it to Squarespace. Additional Resource: Squarespace’s guide on query parameters: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/206543997-Tracking-form-block-referral-sources Thanks, Sadul Sifat
  25. Hi- @Kfed, I understand how frustrating this can be - below I've added some solutions. Did you change the icon recently? If yes, it will take some time to get updated on search engines You can use the URL Inspection Tool on Google Search Console to run a live test for the homepage and request indexing so that Google gets the updated data.
