  1. Hi @Aitch congrats on being close to finishing the site! We wrote a guide to managing URL redirects through website migration to Squarespace that will answer a couple of your questions: https://www.bluehillsdigital.com/articles/squarespace-migration-seo-rankings For the other questions, can you share: Is the old site also hosted with Squarespace, or with a different host? Where are domains registered (the "before" migration domain and the "after" domain)? The article linked above outlines the steps for a migration if the root domain is staying the same, but since you
  2. Hi @Brandimore - you're on the right track, it can just take a while for Google to re-index a new website. When I search your name, I see the new site come up in the 5th SERP spot (after some social profiles), and when I add "coach" to your name, you have the 1st spot. That's a good sign that submitting the sitemap to Google has worked, and the bots now know to crawl your new website rather than the old one. There are some additional steps you could take to increase visibility of the new site in search. For example, I'd highly recommend setting up a Google My Business listing connected to
  3. In most cases Squarespace doesn't allow for parameters in URL redirects. See this note in the support article: https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205815308-URL-redirects
  4. Agree that this would resolve it. Curious to hear from anyone that tries this whether GA ecommerce tracking works with this implementation though. In my experience, GA has to be implemented through Squarespace's built-in integration in order for ecommerce tracking to work.
  5. Hi @spaziosquadrato - yes, Mailchimp and Squarespace are completely separate, so you (or the client) will need to sign up for Mailchimp first. Then you'll be prompted for your Mailchimp account credentials when you go to connect to Mailchimp from Squarespace. All of the problems I've run into with the Mailchimp/Squarespace integration seem to be related to connecting Squarespace to an existing Mailchimp list. If you're starting with a brand-new, single-list Mailchimp account it should go smoothly!
  6. No problem @Skor and yes, I'd recommend including an explicit redirect rule in the new website for the homepage that looks like this: /index.php -> / 301 This would make sure that if there are any backlinks to the website from elsewhere on the web that include the index.php path those links would still resolve to the new homepage after the migration.
  7. Hi @Skor - we published a guide to managing redirects when migrating a site to Squarespace that covers this topic which might be helpful: https://www.bluehillsdigital.com/articles/squarespace-migration-seo-rankings You will need to be careful to set up 301 URL redirects for all pages/posts on your website that will move to a different URL after the migration. The post linked above includes a guide about how to generate those URL redirect rules using a formula in a spreadsheet! You don't need to make changes to the sitemap on the old website, because after the domain is point to the S
  8. Hi @agovella - if you've implemented the summary_large_card info via code injection then it should be working. Try running the page URL through Twitter's card validator tool – sometimes that's necessary to force Twitter to refresh the cached info it stores about a URL after it's been shared already. https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator
