  1. Hi all. I just reported an error to SS with sitemaps. It wasn't clear how they will handle regenerations after the fix, so I'm letting everyone know in case you're impacted. It looks like the issue started around mid-May 2021. New images have been added as <image:title>Image Name - Make it stand out</image:title> and if no caption was specified <image:caption>Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference.</image:caption>. This is on 7.0 and 7.1 sites. After the fix, I hope they automatically regenerate a sitemap for all impacted sites. But if not, and you (or clients) don't update often, then you'd need to keep an eye out for the fix and request a regen. If you update frequently, then it is a nonissue. Good luck!
  2. Site URL: https://floridakeysvip.com/ Can anyone recommend a good SEO company I can refer clients to or possibly work out a deal as using them for extra more in depth SEO as a service? Thank you! Amy
  3. SEO is all about doing what you can to ensure your content is a top result in searches for relevant keywords. Solid SEO copy helps your intended audience find your site in the first place, pulling in those most likely to engage with your content and convert from visitors into customers. Working on your SEO copywriting is a great way to ensure your site ends up in front of the people who need or want it the most. Ultimately, you want to create content that is useful to your customers. An easy way to get started is by researching what customers are asking you specifically (via your customer service or socials) or what people are asking Google about your keywords. You can do this by searching a related keyword and looking at the ‘People also ask’ box. Once you know what information would be most useful, take the time to outline your content. This will help you keep your writing focused and avoid losing your readers through superfluous tangents. Consider using questions as headers where you can, to enforce the idea that you are providing answers. What have you found most impactful when tackling SEO copywriting?

  4. Site URL: https://spiritwomanleader.com Hello, Google is not indexing most of the pages on my site. It's indexed 2, but Excluded 24 pages. Google Console doesn't say where to find the reason for the exclusion. I contacted Google and they can't find where the Exclusion reason is located in Google Console. In comparison, Bing has indexed 8 pages. 1) How long does it take for all the pages on a new site to get indexed approximately? 2 months, 6 months, 12 months, 24 months? 2) Where do I find the Exclusion reason? If there is something to fix, I want to fix it. If it is just time, I will wait. Hanna
  5. Site URL: https://www.nembol.com/ Hello everyone. As you can see, on my website all blog posts (https://www.nembol.com/ecommerce-academy) have a duplicated h1 tag. This is because Squarespace considers both the blog page title and the blog item title as an h1. Is there any way to tell Squarespace that the blog title should be an h2 (or anything else)? Thank you.
  6. I'm unable to change the page title displayed in the browser for my Members Area page. This is because the area (presumably) isn't accessible to SEO since it's behind a paywall. However, SEO page titles also determine what the page is called in the browser tab. As a result it's currently just 'Blog 3', which is incredibly unprofessional for a paid area of the site. Any tips?? Squarespace really needs to work on its Members Area features.
  7. Site URL: https://www.sidoti.com/events I want to get our events to show up when someone searches "x near me" or "online conferences". I have tried putting the event on Eventbrite which is another issue since it doesn't even show up in the searches there. What can I do to our Squarespace page or update the HTML to make this happen? I am fairly new to Squarespace and coding but have a more experienced team to help. Is there a step by step guide someone can link me too. Any idea why Eventbrite isn't even showing in their search. It's published, active, and public so I don't know what else the issue could be?
  8. Does anyone know how i can remove html file used for Google Search Console verification please? I go to the file manager (where we upload files and set as hyperlinks and that we can remove the files there too) and tried to search for the file name but i cannot find it. Thanks!
  9. Site URL: https://www.potsandpaperbysteph.com/ I have noticed that my website appears differently in google when my business name is searched with and without spaces. When you search 'potsandpaperbysteph' this is what appears: When I google it with spaces, this is what appears: 1. How do I get google to display my site so that my homepage appears first when my name is searched without spaces? 2. How do I get the full list of sitelinks to appear when customers google my name with spaces as they do without? My analytics tell me that my highest search keyword is 'pots and paper by steph' with the spaces so I'd really appreciate it if the my homepage/the sitelinks could show when people google this too! I hope that this makes sense - I'm a total novice and any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂 Thank you!
  10. I have a potential new client who wants a website refresh - but their current site is in Wordpress. My preference would be to migrate their site to Squarespace, and they are open to the idea. But they are concerned about losing their organic rankings. Can anyone who done a Wordpress > Squarespace migration give me some insights into how their SEO was impacted - how much of a drop, for how long etc? Thank you.

  12. Site URL: https://www.drmichaelogorman.com/skin-cosmetic-consultations Our website is incredibly slow. I've done some tests but removing all the images on the page, apart from the logo which is tiny, and my Google PageSpeed Test results are still terrible... 63 on desktop and 32 on mobile. I've created many sites on other platforms including Hubspot and WordPress that are super fast (99 on desktop) and contain pages with lots of images. So I can see it's not the images. We have no custom code on this page of our site. We are using Google fonts, but so do my other sites. Squarespace say it's the images. I know it can't be. Has anyone else got the same issue? Basically we're not going to win at search with a Squarespace website.
  13. Site URL: https://www.espaciogeranios.com/ Hello, We have been uploading new posts (2 a month) and I was told that because of recent change in Google algorithm it's affecting the indexing of our new blog posts. I tried to manually index them through GSC but it's not working. Has anyone had this problem? Have you come across solutions?
  14. Site URL: https://www.annartz.com I'm clueless regarding SEO stuff. Can you look at my site and direct me to the basics that could increase my reach? Feel free to offer feedback on the look and usability of site. THANKS!
  15. Does anyone use a hood and free online SEO audit tool? I just want to cover my bases and run an SEO audit on my client’s site. I’m pretty confident I’m following all the table stakes best practices but it wouldn’t hurt to have a scrubbing. 😉
  16. Site URL: https://theyvonne.com Hi Everyone, Thank you so much for any assistance you can provide. I believe I have a bot visiting my site. The IP is always from Ashburn Virginia and an IP lookup indicates the IP is an AWS site. One IP did indicate it was from a site in China. It use to be just once a month. Now. it 3 times a month and because I have low traffic these visits indicate my peak volume. I can get up to 40+ at a time. It is not a big deal but I want to start promoting, some of my work, and these visits will mess. up the analytics. Question: How do I block or remove them from my counts. Every instance is a different IP address but typically each instance is the same for 20-40. views. I am seeing that the view/visit number is getting higher each month. The view always starts on my privacy policy page. ps... I accidentally posted before finishing writing and then did an edit that got interrupted by a phone call. If this caused any issue please forgive me. All my best and many thanks Yvonne
  17. Hello I tried to redirect the index/homepage of my new website/domain to my old website, but it doesn't work. Only the subpage redirect works. What can I do so that both will work? I use this domain only for SEO purposes to create 301 redirects. The domain is conncected from goddaddy , not moved to squarespace. /subpage -> https.//www.oldsite.com/subpage 301 (works) https://www.newsite.com -> https://www.oldsite.com 301 (does not work)
  18. Hi, all -- Does anyone have experience with syndicating content on their Squarespace blog? My blog page comprises both blog posts I've written/published directly to Squarespace as well as blog posts of syndicated/republished content from a non-Squarespace site (which I'll refer to as "FV" here to keep things simple). I need to ensure only the original content on FV is indexed, so my first thought was to include canonical links to the syndicated blog post headers. However, it's starting to sound like there's no way to manually do that. Canonical links are automatically generated for the blog page, but you can't add/edit them to individual posts. A member of Squarespace's support team shared with me the following, in regards to adding source URL links to individual blog posts: "...adding in the source URL does not appear to affect the blog post [or target URL's] SEO, and wouldn't be read as duplicate content. So, you should be good to go -- you wouldn't need to add in any additional code to the site in this case." However, I need to be completely sure Google knows that FV's posts are the originals -- not the one's I've republished on Squarespace, even though I've linked them back to FV. Can anyone with experience in syndicating blog posts share their knowledge/findings with me? Would code injections within the body of the blog post work? Thank you in advance for you time and insight! G
  19. Site URL: https://www.relativelygenealogy.com/ For some reason on my home page in the browser tab it contains the words "General 2". My page title is consistent in page settings, SEO and in the header title. Not sure where it's coming from.
  20. Hi there. I've noticed that on the blog pages where all the posts are listed all the titles on the blog are created using H1 tags. That means on a page where you have four blog posts you will have: 1. Page title H1 2. Four blog posts each with H1 What should be happening is that the blog posts are being listed with H2 tags. As there is no way to set the H level on the title of a blog post this is a change that needs to be made at the design/template level. But frankly should probably have been included as part of the blog code natively. Has anyone come up against this type of issue Thanks
  21. Site URL: https://amandapeterstherapy.com I'm hoping someone can help me out with our new Squarespace site Google issues. We've submitted a new sitemap and everything, but continue to get a "redirect error" for our main page. Both with and without the "www" in front. I've read through a couple forum posts but can't seem to find what could be causing this. We have never setup a redirect, our URL has never changed (this is a brand new site launched in March). When doing a google search "site:amandapeterstherapy.com", we can see that 3 of the pages are listed, however our main home page continues to not show up because of this apparent redirect error. Should I try submitting a new sitemap? Any efforts reaching out to Google haven't been overly helpful...I'm getting mainly boilerplate responses. Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate it.
  22. Keywords are essential for generating traffic from search engines. But which keywords should you use? And how do you brainstorm your ideas? Let’s go through some ways to generate ideas and different types of keywords you can use. To get started, there are tons of organizational note apps that lend themself to a personal brainstorm, so play around and see what works for you! I personally use Google’s JamBoard as my virtual sticky note go-to. This way I can visualize the contents of my site and see what keywords make sense for which pages. For my example photography business, I decided to break it up into the different types of photography I’m involved in and some potential keywords that would relate: Some questions to ask yourself when brainstorming: Who is your target audience? What sets you apart from your competitors? What synonyms can you utilize? For example: New York photographer and NYC photography are two different keywords. And what other words does Google autofill? Type the words you've come up with in Google and see what else pops up! When determining types of keywords, there’s “Head” and “Long-tail”, and there are benefits to using both types. Head keywords are short, usually one-word keywords that catch a wide audience like ceramics, tapestry, and shoes. Long-tail keywords are Multi-word phrases that are more specific, such as engagement photography, NYC shoe designer, and LA dog cafe. Head keywords can catch a more general audience who might not be specifically looking for you, whereas long-tail keywords cater to those who search with the intent of finding a specific product or service. How did you brainstorm your keywords? Any tools or tricks that aided you in the process? Share your thoughts and tips in the comments below!
  23. Site URL: https://www.sweetdream.com.hk I currently have created a web page in English and Traditional Chinese (Main users are traditional chinese users). I have formatted my website site header to as following: 金美夢床褥 | Sweetdream Mattress However when I look up this page on google, it shows 金美夢床褥| Sweetdream Mattress. Does anyone know why the spacing is not showing correctly? I have set the header to %S in squarespace SEO setting. Thank you!
  24. Successful SEO strategies depend on many factors and are usually the product of a lot of time spent on market research, competitor analysis, and social trends. Once this work is done, search engine algorithms will still need to crawl your site and determine its rankings. It’s a long, steady process that requires trial and error, and lots of patience. What happens if your main strategy doesn’t work how you expect? In this case, do what the pros do: experiment! According to the SEO and marketing blog, Search Metrics, SEO experiments will help you answer the question, “will this tactic work for my business?” Here’s a few of their recommendations on experiments you can try: A/B Tests Font, color, and CTA (call to action) changes Tweaking your website copy and metadata Targeting search keywords with low search volume The site Semrush also has some innovative SEO experiments you can check out. How did you get your SEO strategy in shape? Share your insights and experiments in the comments below!
