Site not being crawled by spiders

Someone mentioned to me that my site isn't able to be crawled by spiders. I don't know why that would be. Is there something I need to set up or change? Thank you!

UPDATE: This site is now forwarded to another site, so the question is no longer relevant. But I'm leaving this here since the question and answer might help others.

Unless you have hidden your site's pages from search engines then it will be able to be crawled by search engines.

For more information on increasing your site's discoverability, see the Squarespace guide Increasing your site’s visibility to search engines.

Someone claiming that your site can't be crawled is poppycock. If it's on the internet then it can be crawled. Note the difference between can be and will be. The later is totally up to the crawlers and out of our control.

Watch out for disreputable SEO people trying to sell you some package that will get you to number one or improve your rankings.

Google has crawled your site. So I assume other engines will do so.

Now being indexed and ranking well are two totally different matters.
