  1. @Abelli - the built-in sitemap generated by Squarespace usually updates to reflect new content quickly. The support article indicates "within 24 hours". Check the section of this article on What's Not Included to make sure the new pages you added aren't accidentally set to be private or not indexed by search engines. Otherwise I would reach out to Squarespace support.
  2. Couple of suggestions: if you haven't already, verify the domain with Google Search Console and submit the automatically-generated sitemap from Squarespace. This will help Google index the site accurately as you develop it (I know it's just a landing page for now). In the Settings > Advanced > SSL section, turn on the SSL and HSTS settings, so that all pages are served over https. The result you pasted above shows what an insecure http page being indexed, so that's something to clean up before the full site goes live. Not sure what's causing the Javascript message in the search engine results, but hopefully you'll get more clarity from Google Search Console.
  3. Great questions @Jo_SQSP - hadn't thought of using Jamboard for keyword brainstorming so I'll add that to my list of tools. We just published a round-up of our favorite free and affordable tools for keyword research earlier this week — some of our suggestions include Google Autocomplete, keywordtool.io, and Answer the Public. Check out the post for more details and screenshots. We also cover all the places where you should be sure to optimize for your target keywords in Squarespace 7.1. If there's anything we missed let me know!
  4. @KateMouse I think the issue here is that you've already created a GA4 property. The option to choose the previous UA instead is only available as you are setting up a new property for the first time. If you're looking to run a UA tracking property on your website, your best bet is to create a new property (by clicking the blue "+ Create Property" button you can see in your screenshot. Then as you go through the Property creation process you'll see the advanced options to adjust it to a UA property instead. Hope that helps!
  5. @Jeremyn - kind of depends what kind of events you want to track with the Facebook pixel. Squarespace doesn't have built-in Google Tag Manager support, so if you want to use GTM you have to add it using the Code Injection feature. This means GTM *will not* load on the cart/checkout pages, which Squarespace has pretty much locked down. So if you want the Facebook Pixel to track ecommerce/order related events, you would need to use the built-in Facebook Pixel integration that Squarespace provides. However if you wanted to just track some pageviews, or some other more custom events or "conversions" that you define in GTM, then that might be the way to go.
  6. @zebbieg - can you say more about where the user would be directed to when clicking on this CTA button? I tried loading the link in the CTA code you pasted and it looks like it simply loads the existing Learn More page on your site. Assuming you're on a paid Hubspot plan, I wonder if a different way to achieve your goals around integrating Squarespace and Hubspot for lead gen would be to replace the Squarespace contact form with a Hubspot generated form?
  7. @KateMouse - you can still create a new UA property if that's the tracking code you want to implement. This post includes a couple of screenshots showing where how to create a UA property instead of GA4.
  8. Hi @TFC - it's easy to get confused about how to implement Google Analytics on Squarespace right now! From your post it sounds like you had Google Tag Manager (GTM) code installed on your site previously and you are looking to add a GA4 property? If that's the case, first you would want to reinstall your GTM code snippets, and then second, use a new GA4 Config tag within Google Tag Manager to start loading the GA4 tracking code on the site. We just published an updated guide to implementing Google Analytics on Squarespace here (although this doesn't cover the GTM option yet). Reply if you still have questions!
  9. Hi @incontrolcc - like Glyn said you can add canonical tags to pages in Squarespace using the page header code injection feature. However if I'm following you correctly, you might want to be cautious — it sounds like just one section of your homepage contains this information about packages which is then replicated on a separate Packages page. You wouldn't necessarily get penalized for duplicate content here, since I'm assuming the homepage also includes other sections of content that are distinct from the Packages page? It's not unusual for a website's homepage to "preview" info that is explained in more detail on other pages of the site. Generally you would use a canonical tag to explicitly declare which version of two identical (or close to identical) pages is the preferred/authoritative version. If you canonicalize your homepage to your Packages page, this may result in less search visibility for your homepage, which probably isn't the intended result!
  10. Hi @Estela - you can see how Google is currently indexing your website if you run a search for site:https://www.seaforestation.com/ (see screenshot below). If Google is displaying your "About" page with a higher position than your homepage, that's probably a signal that your About page is viewed as a better search result for that search query. There are a few things you can do to optimize your site and encourage Google to crawl and index the pages accurately, but ultimately you can't force Google to re-index a site or display additional sitelinks — Google's algorithms will choose to do that if the website is well structured, contains valuable content and offers a good user experience. I'd suggest checking on the SEO Title and SEO Description for your pages (notes on that here) and also making sure to submit your Squarespace Sitemap to Google using Google Search Console (we have a video covering how to do that here) If you're interested in an SEO audit for your site, get in touch here 🙂
  11. Hi @MTakai - you probably already did this, but just to be sure: If you don't want pages on your Squarespace site to be indexed by Google or other search engines, you need to set the noindex tag on each page. Do this in the Page Settings > SEO tab (I think there's a toggle there that says "hide this page in search results" or something like that) You can also help Google accurately index your site by setting up a property for your domain in Google Search Console (free tool) and submitting your Squarespace website sitemap. We have a detailed guide/video for this process here. Even after you've completed these steps it might take a while for Google to reindex the site and remove those URLs if they were previously indexed. There's not much you can do to speed this process up.
  12. 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 much in real time, but the conversion doesn't show up in the Ads reporting dashboard until a few hours later. Do you know for sure that you are getting conversions from you Ads campaign yet? i.e. have you seen a "conversion" get recorded in Google Ads reporting that is not showing up as a paid search conversion in Analytics? Let me know if you want to book a quick Zoom call to review the dashboards and try to diagnose the issue – I have some availability Friday or next week.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. @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 Search Console account if you haven't already, verify your domain and add the sitemap... We have some instructions on how to do that here: https://www.bluehillsdigital.com/articles/squarespace-sitemap-google-search-console/
