Hi, I just wonder are Squarespace accorcion blocks SEO friendly? I mean if I put some content to accordion block is Google, and people and who are searching, going to find the content?

I am using accordion block on my site here: https://www.emisbeauty.fi/kestopigmentointi

That content needs to be search engine optimized, so I was thinking if I use accordion or not. Any thoughts? Use or not to use?

Google usually treats collapsible content (such as that in Accordion Blocks) as normal content, even if it is hidden on the initial view. (Of course, this assumes the accordion content is genuine and not "stuffed" with keywords.)

As Paul said above, accordions are fine as long as you don't stuff them with keywords.

Accordions are a great way to increase word count on pages where you don't want a wall of text. Google doesn't like thin content pages (words with 300 words or less), so accordions can help you go beyond this count.

If you want to increase the likelihood of people finding your accordion content on search engines AND the content in the accordion are FAQs, I recommend adding an FAQ Schema.

Hi there. Thin content refers to low-quality low-value pages, it is not word count: https://www.collaborada.com/blog/seo-word-count
