Here’s why you should avoid keyword stuffing if you want to master Squarespace SEO

Ahhhh, keyword stuffing.

As a web designer and Squarespace SEO expert, I see so many website and small business owners making this mistake without realizing that they’re even doing something wrong, and it makes me weep for them.

Look, I get it.

Most websites act as an online “home” for a business, they’re basically a digital presence and a way to share information about products/services/offerings. SEO can take things to the next level but it can also be confusing as heck, especially if you’re a newbie or not technically inclined.
