I actually really liked the webinar. 

However just wanted to add. 

A solid Squarespace SEO campaign boils down to the following three aspects: On page, Off page and Technical SEO. 

Let's break these down in real simple terms. 

i) On Page SEO

Make sure your pages are written in a way that target the right keyword and have plenty of content to support it. 

How did I rank at the top of page 1 for "Squarespace SEO Consultant?"

Check out the page here (or search for it if you like 😀)

Notice 4 things:

i) The keyword is in my URL handle. 

ii) The keyword is in my H1 tag. 

iii) The keyword is used throughout the content. 

iv) The content there is to support the main keyword. 

That generally sums up the main aim of On Page - I've chosen the keyword I am aiming to rank - as clients and partners can find me with that the keyword (if you want an SEO consultant who specialises in Squarespace don't hesitate to reach out). 

ii) Technical SEO

The great thing about Squarespace, is that it actually takes care of a lot of this for you already. 

Sure, you need change your settings to enforce HTTPS and you need to set up Google Search Console but apart from that you're pretty much set. 

iii) Off Page SEO

You need to get links.

See here I managed to get featured in the following:

- Fiverr quoted me: 


- My university featured me:

- Contributed to a post:


All these types of links help support your website authority to allow you to rank for keywords. See my traffic growth below over the last few months after I put effort into my Squarespace site (harryboxhall.co.uk). 

So if you ever find yourself wondering "Is Squarespace good for SEO?". 

The answer is absolutely, but that doesn't mean you can't have an SEO strategy in place. 

Hopefully that's where I help.

Thanks for that short summary, boxhallmaerketing.
I struggle with following on the more technical side in squarespace:


ii) The keyword is in my H1 tag. 

iii) The keyword is used throughout the content. 

iv) The content there is to support the main keyword.

Because I cannot put H1 and content to my categories: when I add a block to the shop site or change the SEO description, it's over the whole shop not only for the category. The categories contain different types of products, i.e. shisha-coal and incense sticks and seminars – which would profit from using a keyword on their own.
Is this behaviour handled differently in other themes?
Should I set up a shop (technically) for each of those categories or do you have any idea how to handle this?

Thanks for reading.

Because everyone is using a very similar keyword data pool, you should be looking at website performance speed and other Core Web Vitals metrics as a priority for low-competition (less than 5M Google Search results) keywords. Google Core Web Vitals and follow the recommendations.
