SEO - sub pages discoverability - SS7.1

Recommended Posts

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

Hi there - Hope someones experience can help!!

I have set up my website in SS7.1 - and happy with design and front page SEO...

BUT I have pages/sections in my site and blog I wish google/search to find - but none of them are being found in their niche at all... pages discoverability is on  - but any search just directs straight to main Homepage - so just trying to niche certain pages... 

Can this be done - didn't seem to be a problem on SS7 - not sure its a new change in latest version or a newish google algorithm change..

Hope someone can help me? thanks

Hi @GilesC - it looks like Google is currently indexing 43 URLs from your site - see the screenshot attached. Not sure how big the site is, but if Google's currently indexing most of your URLs then you probably just need to work on SEO overall to increase your search visibility — move those 43 URLs into higher ranking positions in the search engine results pages.

If those 43 URLs are only a portion of your site, then there might be some underlying issues to address to figure out why Google hasn't indexed the rest of the site yet.

Either way, I'd recommend adding your site to Google Search Console if you haven't already, and uploading the sitemap that Squarespace generates automatically. We have a couple of videos covering that process - I'll link them below.

Ed - Thank you for you help.. yes I did the search console sitemap back in November, again in December and in Jan... and its finding my homepage fine -

The problem is for example - a page in my website: https://www.gileschristopher.co.uk/food-photographer-london doesn't even show up when I enter into google search... and not sure why? this site has been live since October and surely should be found by now... it says its been indexed and I have done SEO titles etc.. but it just not being found! I need each page to rank on their own as rely on them for individual niches.

on old SS7.0 I had no problems with this - do I need to inject code??? 

Thank you for helping me.

The page is indexed in Google, just drop this into the search box:

What you are saying is that it can't be found for the keywords that you expect, and that is what @edharris was mentioning in his first paragraph. There are a default 10 slots in an organic search result and lots of websites competing for those spots.

If you query "Award Winning Food Photographer London" you will find your page but it's down around 50th position.

Nice photos by the way.
