5 answers to real Squarespace SEO questions I've received recently

Gather round, I’m back with another Squarespace SEO blog post!

As a Squarespace designer and writer who blogs/creates a lot of online content about the topic, people have come to know and think of me as an expert in this (super small) niche. I don’t say this to humblebrag but to let you know that thousands of people find my website every month through Google searches about “Squarespace SEO” and they usually end up sticking around and asking more questions. I want to share some of those real life questions about Squarespace SEO that have landed in my inbox recently, mostly coming from my newsletter subscribers (you guys are the best!).

You know how they say that there’s no such thing as a dumb question? I truly believe there isn’t - everyone starts out as a clueless beginner who is a total newbie with no idea what they’re doing. We only improve and get better by asking questions, learning as we go and seeking information from people who are a few steps ahead of us.

That’s why I’m so excited to share these real Squarespace SEO questions with you today! I know that if one person is taking the time to ask the question, there are plenty of other people who have the same question but are too shy to hit ‘send’ on that email to me. I hope that many people can benefit from these answers and see that they aren’t alone in their questions!

How to add Pin It buttons to your Squarespace website - video tutorial

Fun fact - Pinterest is one of the top 2 drivers of traffic to my website, along with Google. Every time I publish a blog post, I pin the blog post image to Pinterest and sit back & relax while Pinterest sends tons of visitors over to my website. It's a small step that yields major results!

Pinterest is one of the most powerful search engines in the world and it works for every website, in just about any industry. If you aren't already using Pinterest to support your website or blog's growth, get on it asap!

One of the easiest ways to make sure that your content can be shared to Pinterest is by adding Pin It buttons to your website and blog.

Pin It buttons appear whenever someone hovers over an image on your site and in just one click, the image (and corresponding content) is shared to Pinterest for the whole world to see. It's super easy to set up and you can customize these Pin It buttons to meet your needs and look exactly how you want! 

If you're ready to add Pin It buttons to your Squarespace website, I hope this video tutorial shows you how easy they are to add and how you can style them to match your website!

How to perform a content audit on your website

Regular readers of this blog might have noticed that my website recently got a mini facelift :)

It had been well over a year since I last touched my website design and the time had to come to make some changes. 

The look and feel of my site, particularly the homepage, needed to be revamped and I was ready to revamp the visuals, change up the layout and make my information easier to understand. I was ready to switch to a website that balanced pretty and performance it it's design

Over the past year or so, my offerings have changed - a lot. There are different services packages, I launched a brand new product line, and have new articles, video tutorials and resources I want to highlight that will help my audience. From the very first moment a visitor arrives on my website, they should know who I am, what I do and how I serve my audience. 

This meant that I had to re-design my website and the layout of how that information was presented. 

It also meant that I was forced to review and update the copy of my website in order to communicate all that goodness in the easiest way possible.

Here’s where the content audit comes in! 

If you're totally new to website content audits or are interested in doing one on your site but aren't sure where to start, you've come to the right place. I'm going to take you through my process below and show you what steps to take so that you can perform a content audit on your own website too!

Let's take a look, shall we?
