Site title and description NOT updating on google

Recommended Posts


I have recently revamped my entire website, created new pages, changed its title and description.

And even though the changes have been saved and appear on squarespace, when i try and google my website and navigate on it, non of the changes in titles, description etc. have been applied.

Anyone knows what could be happening? 

Thanks a lot in advance,

Hi @cle - I've added some suggestions below:

  • Have you submitted your sitemap to Google and set up Google Search Console correctly? If you're unsure, check out this video (it also includes the 4 most common mistakes I see when a site isn't on Google/showing incorrectly): 
  • Have you followed best practices with your titles and meta descriptions? SEO titles should be 50-60 characters, and meta descriptions should be 150-160 characters
  • Does each page have enough high-quality content? Why would Google index you correctly if you haven't provided enough value on each page? Ensure you have at least 300 words on every page.
  • Do you have backlinks? Most Squarespace websites have no backlinks - these are links from another webpage to yours and show Google that you're worth putting on its web pages.

Sometimes these things take time, so once you've made the above changes, time is likely the only thing needed.
