Site Appearance in Search and SEO Settings

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.daveandco.co.uk/

I've been configuring my site for SEO and how it appears in Google Search.  However, the changes I make in Squarespace don't seem to affect the actual search.  Everything looks good in the Squarespace previews and as I want it, the reality, however, is very different.  How do I get the changes made in Squarespace to carry through to Google?

 

Below I've included the current appearance in Google Search Results.  Then the associated settings in Squarespace.

Have you requested that Google re-index your site after making the changes?

Hi Paul

Thanks for getting back to me, without sounding like an absolute novice, I'm not sure how to go about it.  The site is Verified through HTML, Sitemap and DNS if that helps?  Does it make a difference that it's literally just a single cover page?

I've tried the URL inspection page too but cant seem to type in anything that works.  I constantly get "URL Not in Property".

If I type site:daveandco.co.uk I get something different again (see attached).

Whilst logged on to the Google Search Console dashboard, select your site from the property menu in the top left corner.

Click Sitemaps.

Under Add a new sitemap, type sitemap.xml

Click Submit to request Google index your site.

It may take a few hours (upto a day) for the changes to take effect.

Bear in mind that cover pages are designed to contain very little textual information and therefore unlikely to increase discoverability of your brand or site. For more information, see the SEO checklist for new sites.
