  1. If your Google Ads and Analytics accounts are linked and you have imported your GA Goals as conversions in your Ads account the two systems should work together pretty seamlessly to attribution conversions to your Google Ad campaigns. You don't need to manually add any UTM parameters to the URLs you're using in Google Ads in the same way you would for other PPC conversion sources like Facebook ads. Couple of other thoughts that might be helpful: There is definitely a lag time in conversion reporting between Google Ads and Analytics – you'll often see a Goal / conversion in GA pretty
  2. Hi @DCaamano - what user actions are you trying to record as conversions? If you can get those actions (I'm guessing demo request form submissions?) set up as Goals in Google Analytics, then your Google Ad account should automatically start recording those once you link the two accounts up. Happy to provide more support with the configuration if you need it - just msg me and I can provide more info.
  3. The Mailchimp integration is only available on Business and Commerce plans. Guessing you’re on the “Personal” plan, and that’s why you don’t see it?
  4. @salmonuhhhhhh - Google will grab this text first from the Page Settings > SEO Description field in Squarespace. If that field isn't populated with a description, it will default to text from the page itself, which I'm guessing is what happened here. Make sure all the pages have an SEO description set (from the pages menu, click the gear to get to page settings, and then click the SEO tab). Once this is updated, it may take a while for Google to update the search results and there's no way to force Google to reindex those pages immediately. However it will help to set up a Google Searc
  5. Hi @Boise_Jim - the Screaming Frog tool looks for the first TWO <h1> tags on each page, so my guess is that the h1s you're looking for are in the "h1-2" column of the Screaming Frog report. Squarespace sometimes wraps the site-title or logo (depending on layout) in a <h1> tag, which makes the page title h1 the second one on the page. This shouldn't be hurting your SEO though – Google is likely smart enough to figure that out.
  6. Hi @GilesC - it looks like Google is currently indexing 43 URLs from your site - see the screenshot attached. Not sure how big the site is, but if Google's currently indexing most of your URLs then you probably just need to work on SEO overall to increase your search visibility — move those 43 URLs into higher ranking positions in the search engine results pages. If those 43 URLs are only a portion of your site, then there might be some underlying issues to address to figure out why Google hasn't indexed the rest of the site yet. Either way, I'd recommend adding your site to Google S
  7. Hi @Maxgrilling - when you have a new website it's helpful to create an account with Google Search Console and submit your website's Sitemap there. This will encourage Google to crawl the site accurately, and over time you should the inaccurate results replaced by the correct links (assuming everything on your site is configured correctly). We have a couple of videos about how to set up Search Console and submit a sitemap - I'll link them here: https://www.bluehillsdigital.com/articles/squarespace-google-search-console/ https://www.bluehillsdigital.com/articles/squarespace-sitem
  8. Not sure what the issue is with the social link error code — both are accurate URLs that resolve to the right place. People often run into issues with the way Squarespace handles navigation folder URLs for dropdown menus – this comment thread might help:
  9. Hi @TheSignBridge - the most common 3xx status code is a "301 redirect" - that's what you use to point an old, retired URL to a new location permanently so that anyone that clicks an old URL is still directed to a functioning page instead of an error page. I'm not sure what SEO check tool you were using, but it looks like this is a reference to internal links on your site. It wouldn't cause a major SEO impact, but it is worth fixing. Find the page that contains these old links, and update them to the accurate URL for that page – it looks like the accurate URL is https://www.thesignbridge.
  10. Hi @dev13 - if this is still an issue, here are a few things you can do. First, double check to make sure your homepage isn't set to be hidden from search engines. In the Page Settings, on the SEO tab, make sure the "hide from search engines" option isn't turned on (and check on your SEO Title and Description while you're there). Next, submit the Sitemap for your Squarespace site to Google Search Console. We have a quick video with instructions here if you need it: https://www.bluehillsdigital.com/articles/squarespace-sitemap-google-search-console/ The only other thing to suggest is worki
  11. Hi @RaffiatMixbook - I'm guessing maybe the blog post was initially perhaps accidentally published with "Nov 5" at the start of the title? If that's what happened, Google's crawlers may have indexed the page then, and not yet reindexed the page to catch the correct title. I can see from the page headers the SEO Title doesn't include "Nov 5" so you're all set there. I'd encourage you to register the site with Google Search Console (video guide to that linked below), and then use the Request URL Indexing tool to try and nudge Google to re-index that specific URL. Squarespace / Goo
  12. Hi @css_charlotte - based on some quick Googling, it looks like at some point in the past, Google has indexed pages from the site both with the www prefix included in the URL and without. It looks like generally Google has determined that the www version is the authoritative version, but it is still displaying the non-www version, specifically in the second screenshot you posted. In your Squarespace > Settings > Domain settings, did you chose to use the www or non-www version of your primary domain? Might be worth checking to make sure the primary domain is set to www. Also do yo
  13. Hi @David_Lopez123 - search engines have become a lot more sophisticated over the past decade and look way beyond simple keyword density now. Definitely avoid outdated "tricks" like trying to hide keywords with text that matches the background! My best advice is to focus on understanding what your audience (users/customers/clients) are looking for, and develop website content that answers those questions/meets those needs. It's definitely smart to develop a list of keywords or keyphrases that your audience is likely to use when searching for whatever your website offers, but you shouldn't
  14. Hi @marcmoscato - given that there were changes to the site structure and URLs, you'll likely need to wait for Google to reindex the site before things stabilize again. As @creedon just wrote, it's always important to set up URL redirects any time you change the URL of any pages, and dramatic URL structure changes can be difficult to pull off on Squarespace because there isn't an option to create complex URL redirect rules that apply to multiple pages. Based on what Google has indexed on your site currently, it looks like there may still be some clean up to do – there are some potentially
  15. Unfortunately I don't think this is possible just with Squarespace Analytics. You'd need a third-party tool like Google Analytics (and it sounds like you're aware of what the setup there would look like already). I've worked around this in the past by setting up GA and ecommerce tracking, and then sharing a link to a Google Data Studio dashboard with the client which can be a pretty self-service way of looking at the data.
