Urgent Help Needed: Unexplained Conical Errors - Images Showing as Pages, Google Ranking Plummeted

Recommended Posts

G'day Squarespace Circle,

I'm in dire straits, and I'm reaching out for a lifeline. My website, www.inspiringdesign.au, has taken a plunge from page 1 on Google to who knows where. It's more mysterious than a platypus's day off, and I'm at my wit's end.

Upon digging into the issue, I've found that Google has identified 172 conical errors within my site. It seems that every image in my galleries is being interpreted as a separate page, not an image, creating a sea of duplicate content. My SEO standing, built over decades, has been wiped out overnight like a sandcastle at high tide.

This calamity came without warning. I haven't made any changes for months, and it appears to be related to a recent update or a glitch on the Squarespace platform. The loss of leads and the potential damage to my business is, at this stage, immeasurable. Tens of thousands in opportunities have gone up in smoke, and recovery seems a distant dream.

If anyone has encountered this issue, knows the underlying cause, or has a solution to share, your insights would be more valuable than a cold brew on a scorcher of a day. My livelihood depends on resolving this, and I'm open to all suggestions, ideas, or even just commiseration.

I'm grateful for any assistance, and I trust in the collective wisdom of this community to shed light on this dark puzzle.

Best regards,

Richard Davies www.inspiringdesign.au

P.S. If this post helps me navigate out of this storm, the next round's on me. Cheers to community and collaboration! 🍻
