Site not being indexed by google

Recommended Posts



First of all cards on the table - i am not techie. I'm far from techie.

I created a website for my new business using Squarespace on the recommendation of a friend (a web designer), and I'm having huge issues with my site and google indexing it. I was under the impression that this was something that automatically happened, but after nearly two months my site has still not been fully mapped. Upon trying to remedy this I have used Google Search Console to try and manually get google to take notice of me, but have this morning received a message from google saying:


Page indexing issues detected in petertillyhypnotherapy.co.uk

To the owner of petertillyhypnotherapy.co.uk:

Any clues about what the issue is? And how i fix it?

Also, is this a common problem with Squarespace? I am a little disappointed that after a couple of months my website is not visible to google which is costing me new clients.


Any wisdom would be MASSIVELY appreciated.


Many thanks,
