  1. Hi all! I'm really excited for this new Club for SEO Experts. I'd love to start this thread for people to share a bit about themselves, their business, and what they'd like to get out of a subcommunity like this. Let me know if you have any questions about posting, creating Clubs, or managing Clubs! -Maddie, Circle Community Coordinator
  2. Site URL: https://www.thewholealchemist.com Hi all, First post here. I've been having trouble understanding how Google searches for my site name when typing in just the site words separated by spaces as opposed the the actual URL. Typing in site:Https://www.thewholealchemist.com returns pages as indexed by Google so I know something is working but I don't know what I'm missing. Is it purely SEO management that is lacking to rank my site or something else? Still learning about SEO best practices and a long way off getting better ranking but would really appreciate your guys insights. Cheers.

  4. Site URL: https://theelectricshower.co.uk/ I need to use Klaviyo for my mailing listing in preference to Mailchimp. Unfortunately, they are not included yet so I am having to go through Zapier, a 3rd party integrator. Because Squarespace won't allow you to disable double opt-in, and Klaviyo will simplest allow me to with a paid account, the integration fails. Has anybody had any good fortune with this problem? I don't need to pay $20/month for Klaviyo when I still have less than 2 hundred subscribers. I get the verify subscription electronic mail from Squarespace, but not one from Klaviyo. My check e-mail never seems on my Klaviyo mailing list. Very irritating.
  5. Site URL: https://www.thehongkongfixer.com/ Hello from HK, First and before anything else: I hope all of you out there are doing fine. In these tough times, it is crucial our online presence serves our purposes. I love SS and it's user friendly modern design . Just like many have noted in a few forums , it is obvious my site's speed and loading is bad and that we my site does not rank as high as it should. We have implemented many of SS SEO's best practices and since Google has put an even more strong emphasis on first content paint and other speed indicators, it seems our efforts are in vain. The shitiest wordpress competitor wsite ranks better than we do . In thoe past we have compensated this with ad buy ..an expensive proposition. All replies by SS lead back to " oh but lighhouse" does not paint an acurate picture. I do not care about lighthouse or pingdom or any other tool. I just want to rank on first page for my industry. I am crying in despair here. It seems SS does not intend to address CSS and other issues...so ..back to WP? And maybe, I am no developer, I am missing something.......I just want to make films! Any help, strategy at all is very welcome . Thank you and be safe all, Kind regards David
  6. Site URL: https://www.stevemarais.com Hello smart people of Squarespace :) I'm a photographer, I have a simple website that I love. However, I recently did a google search on my name and was horrified to discover that my site is nowhere to be seen. https://www.stevemarais.com I followed the Squarespace SEO guides and made a few tweaks as best I could without compromising the simplicity of my site, but so far nothing has changed. Thing is, I used to rank no.1 for many years. I'm baffled. I'd hate to move back to a wordpress based site (it would probably be simple enough to recreate) because I love the simplicity and functionality of Squarespace, but if my site is unsearchable I might be left with no choice. Any help, advice or guidance will be absolutely appreciated! What can I do? Many thanks! Merci!!! Steve
  7. Site URL: https://schoonerclearwater.com Hello, I am wondering if my site is overdone? I have been told to keep adding to my site for SEO. Mobile user is where most of my business comes from. Any and all thoughts are appreciated. Thank you!
  8. On a pingdom.com check of a Squarespace site I'm noting they're grading 'C' for 'Expires Headers' - is there anything we can do with custom code injection to help raise the speed score?
  9. Hi all, Just a quick question, I have been building pages using the index function but it has just dawned on me that if I now turn off the pages for SEO so you can't find the sections individually then that index page wont have any content to rank. Am I right in thinking that each individual section would rank individually? Does the Index structure allow for the content within to be ranked as one big page? Thanks for any help.
  10. I have a number of squarespace sites that use blogs. Occasionally I want to cross-post content across these sites. I don't want to damage SEO by having multiple pages of the same content therefore looking at using canonical URLs but there is no code injection for separate blog posts. Can anyone confirm that if I add a code block with the below inserted pointing back to the original version of that post this will be sufficient for search engines to recognize the first version of the blog post and therefore not hinder SEO for multiple blog posts displaying the same content. <link rel="canonical" href="https://example.com/blog/test-blog/" />
  11. Site URL: https://www.vamicreations.com Hello all, I have a question regarding the Markdown blocks and adding the nofollow coding. I've done the coding that others here have recommended multiples times (my entire site (https://www.vamicreations.com) is filled with these and I have never had an issue with them till now). About a week ago, every time I started either changing something small (even deleting a space or adding one) in a markdown block of already posted articles or even creating a new post and using the same exact code for the nofollow affiliate links, all nofollow links show to <a data-preserve-html-node="true" href= link and the rest of the code from other nofollow links...I am stumped as I have talked with Squarespace help who has checked coding and everything on their end and not found anything wrong - i.e. it renders fine for them, even on my site. On my end, I have cleared any browsers I have used of caches, cookies, and history, restarted my computer, restarted the router, re-cleared all browsers on my computer, tried the iPad and my computer again and it's still doing the same thing. Thoughts on what else I could do to fix this? I have not been able to do updates for over a week now or post new articles with anything markdown because of this and would greatly appreciate any assistance. 🙂 Thank you and looking forward to hearing thoughts on what I can do to fix this. Michele

  13. Site URL: https://www.cuttoclamp.com/ Hi, On behalf of a client I manage and update two websites which are part of the same large business. One is built in SS and one through a custom CMS. Due to the similar nature of the audiences there are times when the same content (blog articles) needs to be added to both sites. The custom CMS for the other website has the functionality for me to add canonical references, however in doing so the SS site becomes the original source for every duplicate article shared. My question - can I edit canonical references within squarespace to allow the other site to become the original source for some of this content? Can it be edited for individual blog articles? Many thanks Rosie
  14. Site URL: https://www.thefavoriteco.com/ Hi there, I keep finding 100% bounce rate in GA on my site - but when I click the URL it goes to here: https://www.thefavoriteco.com// Has anyone had this issue in SS? My site URL is https://www.thefavoriteco.com - and i'm not sure how to fix this. I want my GA data to be cleaner. Thanks!
  15. My site is producing a blank sitemap (https://www.silettofamilyvineyards.com/sitemap.xml). I contacted Squarespace support and they said my Custom CSS is most likely preventing the sitemap from displaying correctly. I've never encountered this issue with Squarespace 7.0 websites and I'm wondering if this is specific to 7.1. I'm using custom CSS to add 50% transparency to the dropdown menus in the navigation (https://www.silettofamilyvineyards.com). Does anyone know how I can produce a sitemap without removing the custom CSS? Thanks, Jeff
  16. As you can tell from the images attached, the "shop" link which is part of the secondary navigation doesn't show up on google search as a sitelink at all. I know you can't control/customize sitelinks, but are there any workarounds that I can do to add "shop" as a link to the search result? Should I add a link to the primary nav and then hide it in css? If so how do I isolate and hide only one header link, and still have the rest be centered on the page?
  17. Hi, I often code websites with custom coded images, because let's be real - the default image box gives you little control for mobile appearance. eg. www.nicolson.co / www.boxedstorage.com.au My process is this: highlight some text add link upload file get the file map "/s/filename.jpg" create a code block add the src as "/s/filename.jpg" then add my styles I was wondering if there is a better way to coding in images than this? I noticed on SEO lookup tool Google may be penalising me for the millisecond redirect between /s/ and /static1.... image location. It would be great if Square had a media manager where you can drop files and link them, along with better control of image properties for mobile. A simple width function even! Thanks
  18. Hi Everyone I build and maintain Squarespace site for my clients and I use SEMRUSH (https://www.semrush.com/) to keep track of SEO activity. Does anyone else use SEMRUSH? I would like to compare notes on a few things. Cheers Damian
  19. Site URL: https://www.sustainhealth.fit Can anyone please please help as it seems to be a common question that no one does have an answer to. My page speed insights are coming back pretty bad and this is in part to the following. Too many fonts being applied by SS when I'm only using two; so ideally I need to remove the unused fonts as they're using around 1mb and hugely impacting page speed. Ensure text remains visible during webfont load And Google Ad code is also slowing down the page significantly; is there anyway of hiding this code deeper so as not to add penalty, I've noticed when searching competitors page speed there ad code isn't impacting their site. Thank you.
  20. Site URL: http://www.wearehkers.com Hello, I have a blog and am thinking about moving to 7.1 from my current 7.0 site because the blog pages have more creative control. However, please can you tell me how this will affect my SEO? Will my analytics start from scratch for each blog post and the website? I know this is essentially building a new website from scratch as there is no migrate button currently, so does that mean I lose all my data from my site and the SEO I've build with it along the way? Is there some way to export the blog and import it back in to 7.1?
  21. Site URL: https://tools.pingdom.com Hi Guys, On doing a Website Speed test on a Squarespace site via https://tools.pingdom.com it's getting a severe warning for 'Add Expires Headers' Is this anything we can add or customise via Squarespace? Or somthing they plan to address?
  22. Hi there, I have a website that isn't live yet. The current content includes a block of information that would be helpful for SEO with a title and list of 6 tips. However, I can't figure out exactly what to put into the Code Block section so each header contains the <li> code to ensure Google can read the header and the items correctly as a structured list? I have managed to isolate the block code as a first step. Any help is much appreciated!
  23. Site URL: https://www.michellereneebernard.com/gallery-paintings I just switched my paintings gallery from a "Gallery" page fed by a "Portfolio" I set up... to a "Work" page that allows clickthroughs to individual pages for each of my paintings. I had wanted to add the extra information about size, pricing, and more detailed descriptions that the Gallery/Portfolio setup did not allow for. However, I don't see anywhere in this new Work setup where I can add tags for each of the individual images on their independent pages. In the Gallery setup, the Portfolio that it populates pictures from had an option for each image where I could add tags. So I'm wondering if there's any way to add tags to my individual page images in the new Work setup? And if not, well... that's disappointing, but... then is there a way to add more lines in the Gallery/Portfolio setup? I believe anything I typed in (even if I hit the return button), would only show up as one long sentence. OLD WAY: Gallery/Portfolio: https://www.michellereneebernard.com/gallery-original-paintings NEW WAY: Work + Individual Pages: https://www.michellereneebernard.com/gallery-paintings Please keep in mind I'm a total tech dummy when answering. Thanks so much!
  24. Site URL: https://servantleadership.ca Hello all! I'm about to start a new website project for an existing client. We have their current website built on Squarespace and the new one will be on Squarespace as well. All of the content is changing so we were going to start a brand new site in Squarespace. We were thinking this through as they have made some great moment with their SEO and get hits from all over the world - they recently landed jobs with Canadian Tire (Massive Canadian retailer) and Vodaphone in Egypt! They are concerned that with this brand new website they will lose some of that SEO. I should also mention we will be changing the domain from servantleadership.ca to servantleadershipacademy.com as their audience and customer base is now global. Should we be starting from scratch or should I build their new website with their current Squarespace plan? I'm hesitant as I just hate working in the preview mode and hate leaving public pages half baked as we work through a project. Or does any of this matter? Will we be losing our SEO gains by switching domains and having all new content anyway? I'm open to any and all feedback! Thank you! Matty @makewell
  25. Site URL: https://www.twofourseven.co.uk Hoping somebody can help. I moved my site to Squarespace a few years back. I've been spending some time cleaning it up with a new theme developed for it. Blog posts is most of the content on my site. I have used Moz to run a crawl of the site and it has come up with a number of key issues, namely 'Missing or Invalid H1' and 'Missing Description'. I have a feeling that this is affecting my SERP. I can't seem to see how I can fix the issues and add H1 to and include the meta descriptions. Is this a Squarespace issue? Any suggestions to how to fix these issues? Thanks!
