Search Engines Not Crawling Metadata

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.heathermunrocreative.com

Hello!

Since I had my website designed in Squarespace, none of the web page meta data has shown up correctly. Having Google recrawl sitemap and pages has only made it worse. So when you type in Heather Munro Creative, none of the copy that should be listed under page names (About, Connect, Portfolio, Blog, etc.) shows up AND some other pages without metadata show up, including a nonexistent page called Marketing. When you search in Bing, it is also incorrect. Both list jpg images instead of the wording I chose as metadata. Squarespace assures me my metadata is set up correctly and I am out of ideas for Google Search (and if it's wrong in other search engines, too, doesn't that mean it's something wrong in the code or sitemap in Squarespace? I had a web designer custom build off a template and they can't figure it out. I'd appreciate a clue to what might be happening so I can fix the issue and appear professionally in search. Thanks.

Greetings!

 

- When you moved the website your agency did remap the old page urls to the new site structure right?

- You have added a sitemap to Google Search console and assured that it is verified properly.

- You have added your sitemap to Bing webmaster tools

- You have added Schema markup to the pages using code injection.

- You have made sure that your website is setup to force HTTPS

- You did not change your web domain

- You have waited at least 2/3 months for those types of deep links to appear after a site design while the search engines re-evaluate your website and understand it's semantic structure?

- You have optimised your website for Core Web Vitals.

If not all the above conditions are met then these are the basic boxes you now need to check.

OR

You pay for advertising and you can ignore all the above and control how you are displayed in the search engines exactly how you want.

Hope this helps

Thanks so much for responding. I know the web designer did some of those things but I don't know about all of them. Do you know anyone who could look over my site and make sure it was set up properly and perhaps fix it? I definitely think the web design team didn't know how to take a wordpress site and turn it into Squarespace site with SEO in mind. Thanks!
