  1. I'm sure someone from Squarespace will tell me that as a platform, Google treats them differently than the rest of the world - or that in fact, SS is 'special'. Google not to long ago released Core Web Vitals. They have a good explanation of what this is here: https://web.dev/vitals/ Don't be fooled, web.dev is Google, not some third party. Guess what, Google doesn't treat Squarespace any different from any other website - whether it uses custom Javascript, PhP, Asp.net or other code vs. a builder CMS like SS, Wix, Weebly. They are all the same in the eyes of Google. So what does this chart below say about this domain? It says that the pages are slow and not built very well. That's what it says. What's the main issue? The website is as slow as a dog. 24 seconds to be interactive. Google's goal is 3-4 seconds. The main issue? Way too much CSS, way too much CSS that isn't even used. Way too much JS that isn't even used. Oh and a CMS that doesn't automatically compress images or defer loading of those below the fold. All of which are pretty common. Any thoughts here?
  2. 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?

  3. Site URL: https://www.boutwoodskitchen.com/ Good afternoon, I'm using square space to make my website, however I'm struggling to change the appearance of it on google/search engines so it includes my sub-headings and descriptions. I've tried to add in a description for each sub-heading by going into the SEO settings and writing a description for each, however it's not showing when I google search the website so I think I'm doing it wrong. Help 😕 I would like it to look like the following image attached...#
  4. 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!
  5. I browsed through some of the forums and I found this code which a moderator responded and said we need to include it in the code injection - footer section. Is that correct or it needs to be in the header section? I wanted to check if this applies to all pages with buttons to amazon links? Also, how do you add no-follow for pages like avantlink? anyone has a custom code that they can share. Here's what I included in my footer, but not sure if it applies for all pages? <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.5.0/jquery.min.js"></script> <script> $(document).ready(function() { $('[href*="amazon.com"]').attr('rel','nofollow'); }); </script>
  6. Site URL: https://www.or-never.com/ Hi there, Can anyone recommend a SEO extensions for Squarespace. Is Smart SEO good, or do you have experience with some other? Many thanks! Best Sibylle
  7. 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?
  8. Hello all, I'm trying to fix up an error that appears for all pages during a Site Audit for our website. Field: @id Description: A value for the @id field is required. I was able to fix up the Name and address issues by adding a business name and location. However, I have been unable to fix this issue no matter what I try or research. Does anyone have any ideas?
  9. Site URL: http://www.adventureoban.org Hi folks, I've seen lots of other posts about this issue but cannot for the life of me nail down a fix. The issue appears to be a common one: when sharing any URL of any page on my site over WhatsApp, WhatsApp will not offer a preview image. When sending on iMessage or posting on Facebook, all links post fine (I have used the Facebook Debugger Tool to verify and test/check as well as doing actual live posts). Interestingly, before connecting my custom domain everything worked fine - WhatsApp would offer an image preview when sharing the Squarespace-generated URL to my website. Can anyone help? Many thanks, Ben.
  10. 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.
  11. Hello, Do the new auto layouts in version 7.1 effect SEO? Since it's not a regular text block. You can't copy the text either (when in design mode). I've raised the question on the support chat but they don't know. Best, Piebie
  12. Google My Business (GMB) is a free tool for managing the address and information that appears for your company in Google Search and Maps. Is it worth listing your business? The short answer is: yes. You can either set this up directly in Google, or within your Squarespace website you can manage Google My Business via the Marketing > Location Management panel. Having an additional avenue for your customers to call, email, visit your website, and engage with your business can help boost your search rankings. You can engage with customer reviews, list your contact and business information, and gain insights into local search performance. You may be asking: what if I don’t have a physical address to list for my business? Well, there are several options available if you want to use Google My Business. You can list “I deliver goods and services to my customers" to hide an address The post office can assign a physical address to a P.O. box upon request You can rent a mailbox at a private delivery company that offers the same option Have you leveraged Google My Business for your own website? Any insights gained from it’s additional analytics? Let us know in a comment below how GMB has worked for you! Note that Location Management is a Premium feature available in Business and Commerce plans. Only site owners and contributors with Admin permissions can make changes to Location Management.

  14. Site URL: https://edume.com I'm seeing hundreds of errors for structured data across our site. Google is telling me there is an issue with the Structured Data Type: Local business, because it's missing the field “name”, therefore ’Not all markup is eligible for rich results’. I'm pretty sure that the error lies in this section of the HTML: <script type="application/ld+json">{"image":"https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5dd67d2aaec74929770fe3cd/t/5f22d3f925594f27b8e21b8e/1605178318421/","openingHours":"Mo 09:00-17:30, Tu 09:00-17:30, We 09:00-17:30, Th 09:00-17:30, Fr 09:00-17:30, , ","@context":"http://schema.org","@type":"LocalBusiness"}</script> The markup (schema) is only mentioning an image, opening hours, and a type ‘LocalBusiness’, without the “name” of the business field (ie EduMe) therefore Google isn't accepting the code and won’t use it for their Local Business structured data results. I found more information on this here: https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/local-business Our business name is filled in within our Marketing > Location Management panel AND Settings > Business Information. Is there a way for Squarespace to fix this code to include our business name? Thanks.
  15. Site URL: https://www.flogthedog.com/ Hi folks, I'm having an issue with resolving "missing fields" within in Local Businesses. I have connecting Google My Business and and ran test on Structured Data Testing Tool and Rich Results Test. See below screen shots of test and SEMrush screenshot where is details the issue description as "A value for the @id field is required." Any help is appreciated. Best, Steve
  16. Can anyone help me validate this? On my squarespace site I'm seeing a huge drop in Google Image Search Impressions and traffic (approximately 75% decrease) This wasn't a gradual decline, it basically happened over night. Some of my top pages have stopped ranking completely. Squarespace, in their classic "not my problem" way have asked me to contact google (?!?!) Please can anyone help by also sharing their Search Console (Image) view? I'd like to see if this is unique to my website. Thanks!
  17. 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?
  18. Hi. I'm currently working on a Squarespace site in version 7.1. Natively pages are canonical to itself in the code, and I would like to change this but don't know how to. If I use the code injector option, I can add another canonical, but that leads to an error with multiple canonicals in one page. Anyone knows how to change the native canonical? Kind Regards Simon, SEO Specialist

  20. Site URL: https://www.smoredate.com Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to adding SEO keywords to anchor links through the squarespace gui or css? There doesn't appear to be a way to edit the meta desciption or title tags of links through either that I have found. Any suggestions?
  21. So I have 3 pricing packages on my home page who were embeded from an app and costumized. I made another "packages" section (page), for those who are too lazy to scroll down my homepage to see the packages. Now we have duplicated content (some of it) Question: Do I need to set canonical tags here? And if so, how do I do it?
  22. Site URL: http://endeavoritsolution.com There are some algo like Penguin, Panda, Hummingbird and other Google Algorithms that can really make impact on Rankings of the site. Link Building Strategy should be :1) All the links should be submitted Manually.2) All the back-links should be Unique and from Page Rank 2, 3,4, 5, 6+ top domains.3) All the links should be One way, Permanent, Approved,Do-follow and of high quality .4) All the links should be build Naturally & by implementing White Hat Link building only. Also one important Factor is site should be Fully mobile optimized. On-Site Activities should include :1.Optimization of Title Tags2.Optimization of Meta Description Tags3.Optimization of Meta Keywords Tags4.Header Tags Optimization5.URL Optimization6.Optimization of italics and bold tags7.Optimizing HTML Code etc Off-Page SEO (Back-linking) should include1- Blog creation /setup2- Blog optimization3. Search Engine Submission4. Directory Submission5. Article Submission etc.
  23. Site URL: https://www.suzanneuijterlindephotography.com When sharing the link via messenger or text, the link shows NO seo website description, just the link and the image. When sharing the link on facebook the SEO description shows "slide 1 slide1 (current slide) slide 2 slide 2 (current slide) I've double checked all of the SEO for all the pages, including the main website one. They are all filled in correctly and no where is there anything saying slide? How do I fix this?
  24. Hey there. I'm not a marketer by trade, but I've read dozens of posts on marketing and SEO with Squarespace, including ones where it's pretty clear you can't run clean A/B tests. While disappointing, I'm still going to be doing so with Google Optimize as best I can. My main quandary is this: How can I effectively A/B test product price points? i.e. I want to split my audience to two product pages that are identical, except they have two different prices. Is the only way to duplicate all products, set them to "Hidden", and redirect a % of clicks to them through experiments? Would that even work as I expect it to? Site is yet unpublished, for reference. Just laying all the groundwork before launch next month.
  25. Site URL: https://oopsvegan.com/ Hi! I am wondering how can I add hreflang tags to my blog posts. I have a multilingual site with 2 languages (English and Spanish). Google seems to not differentiate the 2 languages because when i add the name of my website on Google, the search result give a mix of English and Spanish. View screenshot attached. Will adding a hreflang tag solve this, what else should I be looking at? Thanks so much Patricia
