cant find myself on google

Recommended Posts

Hi @Shansb

It’s normal for new sites to not to appear in search results right away. Before a website can appear on search engines like Google, it needs to be “indexed” by that search engine’s bots. This process can take weeks to complete and isn't controlled by Squarespace. Check out this great Squarespace help article for more details:

Why doesn't my site appear in Google searches?

There are also some steps you can take to increase your site's visibility to search engines. To learn more, visit this other help guide here:

For any further questions you might have about this, feel free to reach to Squarespace Customer Support.

As a note, bear in mind that SEO strategy falls outside of the scope of Squarespace support. Because search engines have complex, frequently changing technology, and everyone’s marketing needs are unique, Squarespace is unable to provide specific SEO advice to customers.

When i google my site name i cant seem to find myself on google.

To add to what @Susana_SQSP said, there are less than 600 words on the entire site, so it is unlikely to appear highly in search results.

It looks like your domain was registered fairly recently so the domain authority will also be quite low. 

Neil Patel's blog is really good for SEO tips:

As is Moz's:

Hope this helps! 🙂
