    Sifat_SEOSpace got a reaction from SKG0369 in Website not showing up in google search   
    Hi @SKG0369
    I can help you with your current situation. Below, I've provided some potential insights that might be helpful:
    It's common for newly published websites to take some time to appear in search queries. This delay is due to the indexing process that search engines like Google undertake. First, submit your sitemap on Google Search Console so that Google can discover your pages efficiently.  Use the URL Inspection Tool 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 and index the pages. Here are some resources to guide you through the process: URL Inspection Tool: https://youtu.be/Pe_-TkdbXN0   Google Search Console Guide (+ Tips & Tricks): https://youtu.be/WAjd9B7whgY?si=lqQFSaFU2LFw2jx  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,

    Sifat_SEOSpace got a reaction from SEOSpace_Henry in Can I edit the SEO description for my website?   
    HI @KAPhotoGraphics,
    I'm glad to help you. I understand your concern. To update the SEO Title Format and SEO Description on Squarespace, follow these steps:
    Go to your Squarespace website dashboard  Navigate to the page you need to update. Click on the page, then click the "gear icon" to access "Settings". In the "Settings" menu, go to the "SEO" tab, where you can update the "SEO title" and "meta description" for that specific page.
    For the homepage, you can update the SEO settings by:
    From your main dashboard, go to "Settings". Click on "Marketing". Select "SEO Appearance" to edit the SEO title and description for your homepage.
     
    If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
    Best wishes,

    Sifat_SEOSpace reacted to SEOSpace_Henry in How to Set Up Google Tag Manager on Squarespace ✅   
    Hi everyone! I was looking to learn how to track custom events on Squarespace using Google Tag Manager, such as contact form submissions, and couldn't find a good guide.
    So, below, I've added a guide I made on how to set up Google Tag Manager on Squarespace and how to set up custom events.
    Squarespace Analytics is great for seeing an overview, but, for example, if you want to see where your leads come from (such as the landing page they land on and which source), you need Google Tag Manager.
    Hope it helps!

    Sifat_SEOSpace reacted to SEOSpace_Henry in Can I have a brand new site on Private but allow Google to crawl it still?   
    Hi @Jaz_Currie_12 - unfortunately, your site needs to be public in order for Google to crawl it - reason being is, if it's not public, your sitemap won't be available to Google.
    I have a blog on this topic here: https://www.seospace.co.uk/blog/squarespace-website-not-showing-up-on-google

    Sifat_SEOSpace reacted to SEOSpace_Henry in Meta description showing elements?   
    Hi @evemarden - following up on @Sifat_SEOSpace - here's the first thing I'd do:
    Your SEO description is currently 169 characters long (attached). Ideally, to maximise the chances of Google picking up on this correctly, you want it to be 150-160 characters long. Otherwise, it'll be "truncated," or Google might pick up other text (like it has here).
    Additionally, I checked on Ahrefs, and your domain authority is 0 - your domain authority (DR) is a score given to your website that deems how much of an authority you are on the internet.
    The higher your DR, the more likely Google is to "take your site seriously," correctly display you, and rank you higher for competitive keywords.
    You can increase your DR by getting more backlinks - I recently wrote an article on this for the Squarespace pros blog that @Arianna_SQSP will be sharing soon 🙌

    Thanks for your response @Collaborada!
    The videos I shared are aimed at beginners—in fact, thousands of Squarespace users, from beginners to experts, have followed the advice.
    This advice is built into SEOSpace - proven to boost website traffic for beginners by 68% in 2 months (check out the report here if you like: https://www.fusion-analytics.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/RWM-SEO-scanning-impact-202308221-FINAL.pdf).
    Pretty good for "misleading or confusing beginners", in my opinion.
    Sharing developer documentation directly from Google is much more likely to confuse people - most Squarespace users won't know what a <title> element is.
    Anyway, thanks for your feedback and appreciate all the great advice you share 🙌

    Hi - @jarrettweber,
    I'm Happy to help. Below, I've added a few potential insights and resources that might be helpful:
    Keyword Research: 
    Keywords are the foundation of SEO. They help you understand what your audience is interested in and how they search for your products or services. You can use tools like Google Keyword Planner or Ahrefs to find keywords with good search volumes and relatively low competition.  For more information, you can check this webinar: Keyword Research - Live SEOSpace Webinar. Quality Content: Quality content attracts and retains visitors, encouraging them to engage with your site. Google favors content that is helpful and relevant to users.
    On-Page SEO: 
    On-page SEO helps search engines understand your content better and determine its relevance to search queries. Ensure each page has a unique title and description incorporating your main keywords. Use header tags (H1, H2, etc.) to structure your content.  Check out these videos for guidance: How to Optimize H1s for SEO on Squarespace. How to Edit and Optimize Meta Description How to Edit and Optimize SEO Titles in Squarespace Off-Page SEO:
    Link buildings are a major ranking factor for search engines. They signal that other websites consider your content valuable and trustworthy. You can check out this article: What Is Link Building and Why Does It Matter?. Technical SEO:
    Technical SEO improvements help search engines access, crawl, interpret, and index your website without any problems, which is crucial for ranking. Improve your website's loading speed, ensure it is mobile-friendly, secure it with HTTPS, create a sitemap.xml, and optimize your robots.txt file. Regularly audit your site to find and fix crawl errors. You can use SEOSpace's tools, like the SEO audit feature, to identify and rectify technical issues. Their site audit tools are specifically designed for Squarespace platforms.
     
    Following these steps will create a strong SEO foundation that enhances your website's visibility and attracts more organic traffic. Remember, SEO is an iterative process that requires ongoing adjustments to improve website visibility.

    Thanks,
    Sifat

    Hey @harvestfilmco,
    To do this, you need to fill out your SEO title and SEO description on your web pages. These are the things that display on search results when your website shows up - Squarespace makes it super easy to edit them.
    I've added some tutorials below, plus some guidance:
    SEO title: This should be 50-60 characters long and include the main keyword you want to rank for: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbsIAOqU1qw SEO description: This should be 150-160 characters long and include the main keyword you want to rank for: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeweiQFqGWs You can also put your site through SEOSpace to see all the other pages you need to fix the above 👌

    Sifat_SEOSpace reacted to SEOSpace_Henry in Google is not indexing my website   
    Hi @Rawan, this can be down to a few things - I actually made a graphic that summarises the key points, as people ask this a lot 😅
    I've also scanned your homepage with SEOSpace and can see the main thing probably holding you back is thin content - i.e. <300 words on a web page, which makes it hard for Google to know what to rank you for.

    Sifat_SEOSpace got a reaction from Beyondspace in Help: "Page is not indexed: Duplicate, Google chose different canonical than user"   
    Hi @Ferdiii_Naaand,
    I'm glad to help you. I understand the frustration this situation may cause. Here are some insights that might be helpful:
    I've noticed that your new domain's home page is indexed, but the old domain's home is still showing on Google. This can be confusing for Google. That is why you are facing this issue.

    To resolve this, I recommend adding your old domain as a secondary domain. This will enable automatic redirection to the new domain.
     
    Once implemented, perform a live test using Google Search Console and submit an index request to refresh the data.  
     
    I hope this resolves the issue. Let me know if you encounter any further difficulties.

    Thanks,
    Sadul Sifat.

    Sifat_SEOSpace reacted to SEOSpace_Henry in Google Won't Index My Site?!   
    Hey @zakb, I've just completed a site-wide audit of your website, and here's what I think might be holding you back.
    Thin content: if you have <300 words on a webpage, this is classed as "thin content" - making it hard for Google to know what to rank you for. Add more content to help here, potentially an FAQ accordion answering top questions from clients towards the bottom of your page if you don't want to add too much text that's "visible". 4/6 of your web pages are classed as "thin" by SEOSpace. Following best practices: Some of your SEO titles and descriptions aren't the right length - SEO titles should be 50-60 characters, and SEO descriptions 150-160. SEO title tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbsIAOqU1qw SEO description tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeweiQFqGWs Broken links: SEOSpace is picking up you have some broken links, for example https://www.wildfirebartenders.com/hire seems to go to a custom 404 page, rather than an actual hire us page? If I were you, thin content is where I'd start 👌
    Hope that helps!

    Sifat_SEOSpace got a reaction from dgaebel in Meta Description Issue   
    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.

    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.

    Since the domain name is registered with Bluehost (it is connected to the Squarespace website), then we'll take your advice and ensure that we remove the old hosting information from the domain's DNS settings.
