Juice up your Squarespace Organic Traffic with SEO Consultancy.


Are you looking for one of the UK’s most esteemed SEO consultants to amplify your Squarespace website rankings to the top 3 on the first page of Google? Did you deploy a website on the Squarespace platform and expect more ranking momentum for your target keywords?

If your website just isn’t ranking & you can’t seem to gain any ranking or traffic momentum, then it’s time to enlist the help of a Squarespace SEO expert who knows the platform inside out, saving your business time and money.

Out of the box, Squarespace websites are built for clean indexing by search engines, that means, most of the basic stuff is dealt with – however, ranking in Google for target keywords brings with it a great deal of complexities.

Content, links and user experience are heavily weighted factors – and typically those aren’t impacted by your choice of CMS – although some CMS platforms make user experience improvements a tad more difficult.

Squarespace as a CMS offers people with little web design experience to build a professional looking site with drag and drop, click and edit & WYSIWYG functionality. But, most people designing their own business website on the Squarespace platform will need some form of SEO support to speed up rankings & traffic growth.

Squarespace SEO Requirements & Pre-Requisites

There are lots of things that should be undertaken before and whilst your website is published, some of these things include:

Making sure your titles and descriptions are set


Making sure your websites landing pages have properly constructed titles and descriptions is absolutely essential. The squarespace SEO editor allows you to set the required meta data for each landing page.

Making sure you have no duplicate or orphaned Squarespace pages


As part of the technical SEO audit, any stray squarespace site pages will be removed as will any duplicate pages / content.

Making sure your landing pages contain unique, high quality content


Good quality content is one of the foundations of a good SEO campaign. Any SEO expert with experience will understand that content needs to be written for the end user & needs to be constructed in such a way that it meets their needs or “intent”.

Good content isn’t about writing aimlessly or stuffing keywords in, it’s about providing bite size, digestible pieces of content that detail an offering be it a product, service or useful information.

Making sure your Squarespace SEO is better than competing websites is one part of the campaign, the other part is to write content that screams authority, quality and is something you know your target audience would read.

High-quality content will naturally do better in search results.

Appropriate Use of Headings & On Page Elements


Your content should be broken up using sub-headings such as H1, H2, H3, H4, H5 and H6 tags – these can be used to convey other relevant parts of your content and help to make everything easier to read and digest.

Structured use of headings is an important search engine optimisation factor for your squarespace website. A proper array of headings is ideal for improving customer experience – a customer should be able to easily read and understand your content without getting bored by big slabs of paragraph text.

Other on-page elements can include image file names, ALT attributes, properly structured content and internal links between relevant pages.


    Creating Properly Structured URL Slugs


    Your squarespace site will allow you to configure URL slugs (The visual aspect of a uniform resource locator). These are important as they can be used to include keywords, they can also be used to layer pages (forming a breadcrumb structure).

    As part of your squarespace SEO campaign i’ll work to ensure that all URL slugs are optimised.

    Squarespace SEO FAQS

    Here are some commonly asked questions around search engine optimisation for Squarespace CMS based websites.

    Does my Squarespace site need SEO?

    If your website currently gets little or no traffic then the answer is a resounding yes. However, if your website already gets organic traffic and you want to drive more growth then the same answer applies, YES.

    However, it’s not just about embarking on an SEO campaign to grow traffic, there has to be a strategy that looks at what keywords need to be ranked for and projected outcomes from the strategy.

    Just building traffic on its own brings little value, especially if most of your website’s traffic comes from blog posts.

    What does your business need to achieve and how can SEO help to reach those goals.

    How long will it take to see results?

    A Squarespace SEO campaign can take anywhere from 3 months to a year to see results, the time-frame for ranking is very much conditional on your website’s existing performance, domain authority, coverage, and whether Google is due to launch any updates.


    This will depend on a wide array of factors from your websites existing health and organic performance through to the SEO strategy and budget itself. Tighter budgets may mean a longer turn-around in content and technical SEO fixes, whilst more modest budgets may allow for a larger throughput of content, fixes and digital PR link building.

    Most clients will typically see results between months 3-6 but this can and does vary.


    Can you produce all of the websites content based on requirements?


    Yes, I have access to a wide panel of high-quality content writers who can produce well-written, engaging, structurally sound content as part of your Squarespace SEO campaign. Be it information/research content, service content, Google E-A-T content, product or category content – it doesn’t matter, all types of content are covered and will be delivered as part of the overall strategy.

    How much will Squarespace SEO Cost?


    The SEO service itself is determined by an initial technical and visibility audit to ascertain how much work there is to be done at a content, link and CMS level. SEO costs typically vary from £1-£3k a month however this is dependent on the niche, keyword coverage, size of website and more.

    I provide a free no obligation quote and ranking assessment for SEO services, so, if you would like to know more please book your free Squarespace SEO consultation with me.

    Unlike your traditional SEO company my costs do not contain as many overheads, making me competitively priced to research, execute and deliver strong SEO improvements.


    What does an SEO Consultant do?


    An SEO consultant is someone with a background and knowledge of making websites favourable to end users and search engines. An SEO consultant will typically analyse and optimise a website in stages, building a higher quality set of landing pages that offer good user experience, valuable content and meet the intent of the searching audience.

    Is Squarespace Good or Bad for SEO?

    Like any other CMS, there is no downside to Squarespace & ranking this particular platform is no different from working with a platform such as Magento, WordPress, Shopify, OSCommerce, BigCommerce, Drupal, or Umbraco.

    Is site speed important?


    Yes it is as it has an impact on customer experience/visitor experience. Slow websites generally offer a poor user experience whilst fast websites are far more welcomed. Sites should load quickly in any web browser on any device be it mobile or desktop.

    Whilst a great deal of speed improvements can be had in Squarespace, the platform does not yet support WEBP images, which means all images used on your website should go through lossless compression before being uploaded.

    Site speed or “core web vitals” is a ranking factor that will be more weighted as of the Google core update of May 2021.

    Isn’t it time you had more website traffic & more organic visibility?

    Squarespace SEO – is it worth it?


    If your business has invested in having a website built on this content management system then it’s almost certainly worth the investment to optimise & rank. 

    There are lots of online forums and SEO communities that discuss various aspects of Squarespace SEO and the limitations that this particular CMS might have when it comes to optimising for search engines.

    According to a Study by AHREFS on Squarespace

     Only a small portion of squarespace websites get 100+ organic visits per month, however, this isn’t down to the choice of CMS but more other factors.

    Most businesses using this platform have opted to because of it being a cheap, low cost option that’s user friendly even to inexperienced webmasters. It’s generally this that results in poorly optimised titles and descriptions, mismatched keywords, insufficient landing page content and a lack of authority link building.

    Squarespace websites have as much potential to rank as WordPress, WIX, Shopify & Magento websites.

    We have been working with Daniel on our national flooring site since last November focusing on link building and on page fixes. We were told it takes up to 6 months for result to manifest however we are already starting to see some good increase in organic traffic. Daniel is great to work with and tells it how it is without the fluff. Highly recommended.

    I have used Daniel for SEO consultancy for the last 3 years. He's helped our jewellery business to grow significantly online. We initially used Daniel for some SEO consultancy, but, after a few months we realised it would be better to just hand the SEO over to him completely. Since then our keywords are all showing prominently in Google and our analytics traffic is up 100's%. I can't thank Daniel enough and I hope this review encourages others to seek his expertise.
