  1. Hey Guys! Google Search Console updated its metrics for Site Speed this last week, and after months on the rise, my website views are now on the downfall. It's not a critical tank, but you can see that it's slowly going down and down. I've reached out to SS support, and they said my site is excellent and running smoothly on their end, but my Google Search Console is filled with Page Speed errors and that combined with the tanking viewership, the data shows otherwise. I've read through every SS document, removed as much custom code as I can find and do without, simplified my text to be web-friendly fonts only, updating everything I can see, and SS support suggested post here for support. Before I implemented all the suggestions in the SS documents, my website was ranking a ONE (1) for Google site speed on mobile and a NINETEEN (19) on desktop PageSpeed Insights, these are out of 100. After I made all these updates, I am now ranking a TWO (2) and a TWENTY THREE (23), for site speed. I'm part of a forum that is mostly Wordpress users, and they are ranking 83-100 on average. The few other SS website owners have reached out to me in this group, and we are all racking our brains. Google is 80% of my page views, Pinterest next then Facebook, so this does matter to me considerably. Other website owners I know have reached out in tears and mental exhaustion since all these changes started rolling out in September. I am trying to hold my resolve. All these error codes keep coming up on https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/, too - most of them are assests.squarespace or Typekit related, some third party code on Mobile which I'm trying to figure out. So far I've - Reduced advertising Removed unnecessary third party code Changed my font to be web friendly I checked with SS, and they said all my images are in proper sizes, but lots of the errors on my PageSpeed Insights shows to be image related. Does anyone have any suggestions? SS Customer Support Suggested I post here. I send every blessing your way.
  2. Hello How do I delete uploaded .pdf files from Squarespace when they are not visible in the file drop down menu (AVENUE template) but still discoverable through Google search? I was surprised to find out that some pdf files that I had uploaded a year ago as links to certain pages but not used any more, where still available to download if I searched my site on Google! When I go to file manager I can't see them on the drop down menu. Also, I realize different linked areas of the site display different uploaded files. Is there a central file management place where I can delete everything that is not in use? URL: www.onebreath.eu, Template: Avenue Thank youMyrto
  3. I have 2 domain names on my site - https://ligocreative.com is the new one, https://lilanigoonesena.com is the old one. Both URLs will remain as I slowly transition my business to the new one. But when I go to create a new property for https://ligocreative.com on Google Analytics, it asks me to put the Google Tag Manager code into the External API Keys but the old one is there. Do I replace it? Leave it? Use both? I want GA to track both URLs, is that possible? Thanks

  5. Is anyone getting this error from Google Search Console? Either "offers", "review", or "aggregateRating" should be specified Looking into it I found some workarounds in other CMS but not for Squarespace. Any answers or workarounds? Thanks!
  6. Hi My site speed is really slow. I have done as much as I can, but this is what shows up. Any suggestions, would be appreciated.
  7. Hi I’ ve been asked to help with the optimisation of a website that has been created in Squarespace, using the following Template id: 55f0aac0e4b0f0a5b7e0b22e. I'm relatively new to squarespace and was wondering if it is possible add additional pages to this template? Or does the site need to be replicated using a different template? The site appears to be a one page site. See below: http://tahliabrand.com/ As the services offered on this site vary quite significantly I thought it would be best to create separate pages with individual URLs. If anyone has any feedback it would be much appreciated. Also I note the Template id 55f0aac0e4b0f0a5b7e0b22e has aproximaly 35 different titles ranging from Aria to Wav. Can Anyone explain the variety of names?
  8. I wrote several blogposts on my site.I wrote both SEO descriptions and excerpts for my blogposts. Still Google only shows the first sentence or sentences from the blogposts in the Serp. Google does not show my SEO descriptions or excerpts which is bad for my SEO. How can I fix that? Best Regards,Pontus
  9. Hi, How come Squarespace not support Chinese language or other foreign languages (apart from English and characters of the latin alphabet)? Noted that Google used "7451184?hl=zh-Hant" after the forward slash in it's URL https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7451184?hl=zh-Hant How important is Chinese characters in the URL Slug?
  10. If anyone could spare the time to have a look at my website to maybe give some pointers on how I can increase traffic to my site as making very little sales and wondered if everyone is simply paying for marketing or adwords? kind regards Gav

  12. Hey! I am trying to index my site, but when I try to do a URL inspection on the Google Search Console I get the following error: No: 'noindex' detected in 'robots' meta tag How do I remove the ‘noindex’? I do not have any Code Injection. Thanks!
  13. Hi, How to create URL Slugs - at the end of a root domain - in foreign languages including: Russian, Chinese and Hebrew, Arabic etc. Let's start with this word in hebrew מדע There's an assortment of free URL decode tools available It's encoded %D7%9E%D7%93%D7%A2, but SQS Page URL Slug system changes it into d79ed793d7a2 instantly SQS does not seem support the percentage sign in URL Slugs and does change sentence case of URL slugs as well. How to create specific URL Slugs that would display in foreign languages (characters outside of the latin alphabet)? How to achieve something similar to the below results? P.S. My site is in five different European languages; ranked in top 10 in many local versions of Google across several keywords. I've used SQS since 2014; read hundreds of forum requests for bilingual website tools and ended of developing it on my own. Now want to scale the business in markets beyond the latin alphabet. Below is examples of good URL's Decoded in Foreign Language https://www.jw.org/he/הדרכה-מן-המקרא/מדע/ - Hebrew https://www.jw.org/ru/%D0%BF%D1%83%D0%B1%D0%BB%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%B0%D1%86%D0%B8%D0%B8/ - Russian https://www.jw.org/ar/%D8%B4%D9%87%D9%88%D8%AF-%D9%8A%D9%87%D9%88%D9%87/%D8%B0%D9%83%D8%B1%D9%89-%D9%85%D9%88%D8%AA-%D9%8A%D8%B3%D9%88%D8%B9/ - Arabic

  15. The new SEO tools are nice but since page speed is one of the most relevant aspects you should do something about slow loading. Just a few examples of what Googles PageSpeedInsights tell me: Eliminate render-blocking resources. Estimated savings: 4.19 s Details: Resources are blocking the first paint of your page. Consider delivering critical JS/CSS inline and deferring all non-critical JS/styles.

  16. I am fairly new to Squarespace and helping a client do a redesign on their current website. Following the advice below, I started a trial site because they wanted their current site to stay live while doing the redesign. My plans are to make a trial site—and then to switch it over to their current URL. They are now complaining that their Google SEO will be affected if I do it this way and i have already put in 20+ hours at this point. I don't see why this would happen, as it would be the same URL, just a new "design" but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this. Any explanations would be great so I have some technical stuff to tell them when I speak to them next. If you want to completely switch templates and basically start from scratch, your best bet is to create a new trial site under your existing account, get it setup exactly how you like it and then when you are ready, upgrade it onto a plan and switch the domain over to your new site. TLDR: Designing a website. Made trial site on Squarespace so I was able to change theme and was planning on switching to "real" URL when I was done. Client claims it will affect google SEO and I need to know if this is true.

  19. Hi everyone, My site title (the one you enter into the 'site title' blank above the 'site tagline' blank in the Design tab) appears in my web browser tab on my cart page as well as on my homepage, which has prompted SEO tools to flag both pages as having the same title. I have it on good authority that google doesn't like duplicate titles, so is there any way to change the cart page title to something like 'Shopping Cart'? I've looked everywhere and even contacted customer service, and there's nothing to address this issue. No other page on my site shares the same title as my homepage, and every page except for the cart page seems to be fully SEO customizable. I've attached 2 images for reference - I can't include the link to the site yet, as it's in the dev stage and I don't have permission to go live yet. Thanks in advance!
  20. I'm trying to customize my blog post SEO title, and am running into an issue where the search results preview shows the title as duplicated–See the attached image. I'm running the Basil template. Any ideas why this is happening, and what I can do to fix this issue? I've tried adjusting the page/site structure to check that the page isn't duplicated, like (%p - %p)...but maybe I don't know the right place to check this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  21. We recently did an overhaul of our website. Switched to squarespace from a different service. We are using the same domain name. After the rehaul, there were roughly 70 urls that we were no longer using so I used the url remove tool to remove them and each of them returns a 404 page. We also added around 50 new pages. I have submitted new sitemaps at several stages along the way and have asked for each page to be indexed. Since doing that, some of our pages have very good placements on SERPs. However, when using the most important and commonly used search term for our industry and locality, our results are very sporadic. One hour we are in the top 20 results, the next we are no where within the top 100 results, using the exact same search term. We are in a very competitive field, so my expectations are tempered. Being in the top 20 results is okay for now, but to not even be in the top 100 is obviously concerning. Like I said, some of our pages are the first or second result when you search for terms targeted by those pages. We have no manual actions or security issues.
  22. We are having a Local business schema in website by default. We need to add the Areaserved, slogan, Logo to this Local business schema. How can we update this? If insert the new schema it taking as 2 difference Local business. How can we add additional tags to Local business schema?
  23. Hello, I've encountered a problem where none of my images are coming up in google searches. I have a portfolio style website, with a few pages of lots of images, yet none of them appear when searched for. The only images from my site that appear in searches are my logo and an image I've used on the contact page. I recently set up a shop with Shopify which is linked to my website, and all of the images from the shop appear in searches, so it's bizarre that none of the main website images do. I've gone through all of the SEO checklists, indexed the site via Google and added descriptions and tags to each image, yet none of them are showing up. I'm using the Wexley template, although I'm not sure if that effects anything? I asked Squarespace online chat for some insight into why it might be happening but they just sent links to articles I've already read. Anyone had a similar problem or has any insight as to why this might be happening? Any help would be much appreciated!
  24. Hi, I hope somebody could help me solve out this problem. Even though I put description on "seo description", it didn't show up on SERP and also excerpt is recognized as meta description... Does anybody know how to show up seo description?
  25. Hi guys, Moz.com says my blogpost is missing description. (blogpost: https://www.juegopadel.se/padelskolan/hur-du-positionerar-dig-bak-i-banan-i-padel) What's the difference between SEO and Excerpt for a blogpost? Should i fill in the same text on both SEO Description and Excerpt? I wrote SEO Title and SEO Description for my blogpost (edit post / SEO) but Moz.com says that description is missing. Should I: 1. Fill in the same SEO Description in Excerpt? 2. Erase SEO Description and put it in Excerpt instead? 3. Do something else? Thanks!
