Google not indexing my homepage

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 
I have a very simple squarespace website which only has two pages: the home page and a contact page.
 
Now the contact page has indexed as expected, but the homepage is not indexing due to a redirect error. 
 
The version of the homepage with the unique slug (in this case www.goudenstaart.nl/home) didnt index because it said there was an alternate page with the correct canonical tag, which I'm guessing would be www.goudenstaart.nl/  (without the /home) but that one is not indexing.
 
I have checked the pages in Lighthouse, and other programs such as ahrefs and httpstatus.io. They all show that everything should be fine.
 
I dont know if it helps, but this is the sitemap I imported to google search console: https://www.goudenstaart.nl/sitemap.xml
 
Can someone please help me with this?

Hey everyone, just wanted to see if this is a squarespace specific issue but it has been ages since my website went live and it is not indexed on Google. I connected my Google Console to Bing Webmaster tools 3 days ago and today I saw my that my website is indexed and available on Bing. Google is taking too long and I have seen multiple threads on here where many people are having indexing issues. 

I went through my website and made sure all internal linking is good. My sitemap also looks good (to my untrained eye) and my robots.txt file is the default so I don't think there is any problem there. 

Anybody else dealing with this? Anybody solved it? Would love any advice to get indexed on Google faster. 

I also have a blog that I want to get indexed quicker on Google as articles start rolling out but it seems that other bloggers are dealing with very long wait times for a simple blog page to get indexed. Have there been any improvements from Squarespace's side?
