How I became an expert at Squarespace SEO

I’m about to #NotHumbleBrag, sorry not sorry. Thanks in advance for letting me indulge myself and toot my own horn here in this blog post :)

LOL jokes aside, today’s blog post is a fun one that pushed me out of my comfort zone.

If I’m being totally honest, it feels a little weird to write this but it’s a topic that I’ve been asked about quite a few times over the past few weeks, and I’m not going to leave my readers hanging. People have been asking me how I learned so much about Squarespace SEO, how I became an expert in this super random niche, and how I set myself apart from others in the online space who also offer this service.

These questions have been landing in my inbox, they’ve come up during my Squarespace SEO Audit & Consulting sessions, and even a a few people have slid into my DMs asking about it haha.

Well, my friend, I’m here to share my own experience, thoughts on my journey and the learning curve, and let you know how I became the internet’s “go-to” source for everything related to Squarespace SEO.

Am I saying that I am THE ULTIMATE SQUARESPACE SEO EXPERT and that no one out there comes close to my skills and knowledge? No. The person with that top-honor title is probably employed by Squarespace and leads a team of tech geniuses at their head office haha!

What I am saying, however, is that I have achieved expert status when it comes to Squarespace SEO. I’m not trying to brag but I’m proud of my work and I hope that this post shows anyone who reads it that you too can become an expert in anything, so long as you’re willing to put in the hard work and shamelessly self promote #realtalk

Everything you need to know about using AMP blog posts on your Squarespace website

Today’s blog post is inspired by a question that come up recently during on my of Squarespace SEO Audit & Consulting Sessions and I knew it would be a great topic to share publicly with my blog readers as well.

If you’ve ever looked at my Squarespace SEO Checklist freebie (which you can get below), you might have noticed that I’ve marked the AMP setting as optional. There are a few very good reasons for this which I’m excited to dive into below!

Many Squarespace newbies or people who are just learning about web design/development for the first time probably have no clue what AMPs are, let alone the pros/cons of using them on Squarespace website. If you find yourself in a similar boat, this blog post is definitely for you!

I’m going to explain what AMPs are, how and why you would use them on your Squarespace website, and also talk about what affect they have on SEO and how your website/blog posts might show up in search results.
