Website not showing up on Google?

If potential clients can't find you when they search... this is for you.

Here's what you're doing wrong 👇

One of the most common topics I get asked about is indexing issues...

Getting your site onto Google is step 1.

Once you're there, you can then progress to page 1.

If you're struggling with the 1st step, the below infographic is for you.

The issues include:

Incorrect Google Search Console connection
Lack of backlinks
Password-protected site
Thin content (<300 words on the page)
Lack of value in the content
No Google My Business setup (or general lack of internet presence)
No index tags
Poor on-page optimization
Google still processing your indexing
Brand new website or domain (Google Sandbox)
Removal from search results

Unfortunately, the list goes on, but these are the main issues

Hi Henry have you ever met this issue (I see several users struggling and no one seems to have an answer): On a website´s homepage Squarespace auto-generates a slug after the URL for the main site. Removing it is not an option, you can change the words of the slug, but "no slug" is not an option.

This duplicates all content in search engines a Google Search Console warns that it negatively affects your page´s ranking.

In a guide Squarespace even notes that there should be no slug after the url for the main page. (Screendump attached).

My main page is an index i 7.0, but other users has the same issue with blank pages, folders, etc.
