  1. Hey Guys! I like to use list elements a lot, because they enable swiping through items on mobile. I use them for "buzzword-roulettes" 😉 and "teams". Unfortunately – the "title" of the items is generated as Heading 2/ H2, so I end up with a messed up heading hierarchy with a lot of H2 with buzzwords or names. I know, I could disable titles on items, but this way I can't make a phrase stand out in the description size wise and I am limited to make the phrase bold. Any idea how to disable / prevent / override this?
  2. Site URL: https://fashionfilms.co.uk Hi, Thank you for taking the time to read this and special thanks if you have any thoughts on my new site that you would like to share. https://fashionfilms.co.uk We create fashion & beauty content & advertisements and are based in London. This is a portfolio site that hopefully will entice new clients. We have had a 7.0 site for a while and decided to upgrade and use iframe videos rather than gifs to animate thumbnails for links to our films. I am particularly interested in hearing about the following user experiences: Load times- the main page is quite video heavy. Is it making everything drag? Design- Is the home (main portfolio) page to frantic? Does the amount of moving content drive you nuts or keep you interested? Messaging- Is it clear what we do? Navigation- Did you find it easy to get around? Suggestions- Would love to hear any thoughts on any aspect of the site. Any way of making it faster? Thank you in advance

  4. Hi all! I’m Alicia, a product designer on a team at Squarespace focused on helping sellers succeed across different sales channels. As part of our work, we want to better understand how users are finding success or challenges with e-commerce and SEO on our platform. I thought posting here could be a good way to connect with some of you, and learn about pain points we can address in future updates. If you’re a seller on Squarespace and interested in providing thoughts, if you could respond in the thread with the following: Your self perceived level of knowledge on SEO (specifically SEO knowledge pertaining to e-commerce, rather than general SEO for a website) What goals do you have for your shop’s performance? What SEO tactics have you tried to help with your shop performance? How did it go? How do you measure progress towards your goals? If you’re looking at data, what are you looking at, and do you use any third party tools?
  5. 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?
  6. Hi there. Does anyone know how to make a folder slug a page? For instance, if I add a Services folder to my nav, the slug is /services, but that slug is added to the sitemap and indexed by Google. However, when you visit the /services URL, there is no content, and it returns a 404 error page when I try to add a content page for the /services slug (so that the indexed /services URL has a page and content, I cannot because the folder name takes up the /services slug, I hope this makes sense.
  7. Site URL: https://www.trustafoxphotography.com/ Just thinking, and wonder if anyone can help. I'm a music photographer and my site of a few years lists ok on google ( I set it up using a stock gallery template ) I feel I need to add extra text/SEO/H1 stuff to help me list higher. I can off course rebuild my gallery pages in text blocks to enable me to add some SEO gains. My question - will this effect my current placement? How long will it take for the gains? I'm I just being greedy and make do with my listing as it stands. 🙃
  8. 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?

  9. Site URL: https://www.liboudoirphotography.com Both Google and Bing are telling me that robots.txt is overlapping resources on my mobile site.

  10. Hi, we're trying to improve our SEO and in a tool that we used, it has indicated that we don't have an H1 Heading in our website. Our current heading right now is just our company logo and we have already indicated our site's title on it as well. Is there something we should do? Does it need to be in text for it to be considered an H1 heading? Thanks in advance for your help.
  11. Site URL: https://designsfordiy.com/gallery/cornhole-board Who is up for a challenge? For the life of me, I cannot locate the issue where my content is wider than the screen or where the clickable elements are too close together. According to google's seach console, I have both of these errors on my desk build instructions link. Does anyone have any tips, tricks, advice on how to fix these issues OR at least locate where they are occurring on the page? Many thanks in advance!
  12. Hey everyone, I have been designing in Squarespace for 4 years now and really like the platform. I have worked in SEO for 20 years, not just doing SEO for clients, but training companies on best practice. There are some basic elements of SS that don't support SEO so well....any problems, why not drop me a line? Got clients who are struggling....drop me a line. I ma based in Spain, but work mainly remotely for my clients. Am also looking for a couple of professional hook-ups - would like to collaborate on Web Design and SEO requirements. Have a fab day,
  13. Site URL: https://www.jamiechancetravels.com Hi All, I would really appreciate some feedback on my website if possible. Everything was going really well in terms of ranking on Google and page views etc but, for some reason, in 2020 I decided to transfer my site to Squarespace. If I'm honest it was mostly due to the simplicity and design but ever since, even with new posts, I find that I'm struggling to move forward. I try to follow SEO good practice, keep page sizes down (though I do have a lot of photos) but ranking on Google seems impossible! I can see that my page speed scores are low using Google or Lighthouse but okay using GT Metrix - I am very confused! I have posted a few articles recently that simply will not rank at all. I would love to know if there is something, obvious or not, that I'm missing or whether it is just that what I post isn't good enough... I really appreciate any help anyone can give me! Thank you Jamie
  14. Hi there, I have tried for some time to add an existing (verified) Google Business Profile Listing to a client's site and the screen freezes at the square after allowing me to get as far as connecting the google account associated with it and clicking on "allow". I have tried troubleshooting with the following: -Waited and tried again in a few days -Tried on various browsers -Logged in, logged out -Verified emails, admin privileges, etc. -The site is live -Tried on various computers -Tried instead to just add a new business listing (this did not work either) I have successfully done this before, but I feel like there must be some update or something I am missing?) Thank you for any help or insight!
  15. 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

  19. Site URL: http://ambrand.nz Hi Guys I am at a loss with the Mobile Usability issues. I have spent so much time trying to find the issue and the text on my site is now so large and looks so unprofessional. I am still getting the Text too small to read and Clickable elements too close together. If anyone can help me out, that would be greatly appreciated. Google seems to have issues with the product pages and items listed in the store. All the pages have a same layout, but somehow google passes some of the pages and flags others. I have read all the information in the forums regarding the font sizes and I have increased them so that none are below the recommended pixels. What am I missing???

  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!
