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! My goal here is to teach you a little bit of tech, go over the AMP setting on your Squarespace website, but most importantly clear up any confusion surrounding them and how they’re different from regular blog posts viewed on mobile. 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.

Everything you need to know about Squarespace Page Titles

What makes up a website? Do you think of a collection of pages that display a variety of content? If we agree that a website is something along those lines, the next question to ask yourself is how does a visitor move around the site?

First off, there’s the home page where visitors initially land on your website. From there they navigate around to different pages of the site. Users often hop between pages by clicking through to the content they’re looking for, and that’s often indicated by the Page Title. For example, if you want to read the blog, you’ll click the “Blog” link. Or if you want to shop a brand’s products, you might click “Shop” or “Products”.

As a website owner, your goal is to make it as easy and straightforward as possible for visitors on your site to access the information they’re looking for.

This is where Page Titles come in!

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!
