Has anyone else had major issues indexing their web page with Google Search Console and had no success? When I inspect my URL, it says my website is on Google. However, when I try to request indexing (I've done this on several of my websites and keep getting an error), it either times out or comes back unsuccessful.

How can I get Google to index my sites again?

I'm also having major issues with Google My Business. The last two jobs I've done for clients, Google will not let me verify their business (they have a local store)! I've been using Search Console and GMB for over a year now with little to no issues. Why can't I index my sites and add my client's companies to GMB? Here are two examples:

People have said to use Schema to help with the GMB verification issue. Has anyone used Schema with Squarespace? I've tried the Google Tag manager and have never been able to get that to work. I am starting to get very frustrated with Squarespace's SEO performance (and I'm even using the free version of SEOSpace).

Has anyone found anything to help GMB verification and schema markups?

Hi @jblpropel

You can use this tool to create Schema Markup - https://www.google.com/webmasters/markup-helper/u/0/

I'd have to look at your Google Search Console to find the exact issue. 

However, looking at the screenshot you've uploaded - Referring page: None detected. 

Your web pages need more referring links for Google to index your site properly. These could be acquired by uploading your business information to popular directories both locally + nationally and through social signals. 

Having briefly checked out your site, your site is ranking for a variety of keywords... I would recommend designing your site for local SEO optimisation. This would include adding maps + your address. You could also look at your page structure and break up your 'Services' page into individual pages. 

- Airport Transportation 

- Work transportation 

- Events Transportation 

- School transportation 

The H1 titles would help with these keywords would 100% help! 

I would also look at building up your Google Business Profile with reviews + regular posts. 

Hope this helps 🙂

But 100% keep going - Squarespace is amazing for SEO. I've achieved some incredible results for my clients in highly competitive industries. 

All the best,

@huxleymann thank you so much for replying! I would love to use G Tags, but I have tried on at least 7 websites and every website shows up like this (in Structured Data Markup Helper). I go to the Tag Manager, select local business, add the www.____.com, and get this screen (which doesn't show anything and will not allow me to tag anything).

I've always assumed its been Squarespace and the lack of SEO ability...but am I doing something wrong? Are other SS designers able to see a different screen and actually able to apply tags? I've gone through so many Google trainings on this and never figured out how to get it to work with Squarespace websites.

@jblpropel you can use https://technicalseo.com/tools/schema-markup-generator/ as an alternative. 

Although Squarespace already includes a default schema markup. 

I would concentrate your efforts on social signals, page speed, optimising your website for local SEO, keyword placements, blogging and building your Google Business Profile.


Check out this blog post I wrote, which goes through how to optimise your site. 

You could also look at purchasing this new SEO plugin - https://www.seospace.co.uk/squarespace-seo-plugin

I haven't tried it out personally, but I've heard good things 👍

Hope this helps 🙂
