Squarespace Photo Galleries: Images DO NOT show up in Google Search ...

Recommended Posts

We are finding that Google does not index Squarespace gallery photos - even though they are properly tagged, etc. The website has been live for over two months, and the site and page images do show up in Google Search but not photos in image galleries. Is this is problem with Squarespace - does anyone else have this problem? Thanks in advance.

From my galleries only 2-3% of images are shown in Google Images. The specific images vary somewhat though. It seems that Google knows a lot more images than it shows, alternating between the known stash. Weird but even there I don't think Google has more than 5% indexed. From all galleries though, some of them have hundreds of images and Google shows 2.

If I understand this correctly, is the only way to get photos indexed by Google on Squarespace  to use the "Add Block" > "Image"? 

My client has 15 galleries of 20 photos. I came to this forum looking for the best way to populate the site so that the images/titles/descriptions are searchable within the site (which is looking dismal so far) and now to learn they aren't even making it to Google = Ouch. 

Sounds like I need to completely reconfigure the site for both Google search and also searchable site-wide. Very open to suggestions if you have any!
