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!

Expert Roundup : advice on creating an effective homepage

The moment someone arrives on your website, they have landed on the oh-so-important homepage. This is where visitors learn about you (and your business) and are introduced to your offerings (products, services, blog, etc.) for the first time.

A homepage is so much more than just a landing page with a bit of content thrown together.

When designed correctly, a homepage can be a very effective page that guides visitors around your site and highlights key content in a simple, well-organized way.

Sounds easy, right? If that's the case, however, why do people struggle so much with creating a homepage that works FOR their website and business?

Alright alright alright, today we are going to dive into one of the most boring pages of any website ... the Privacy Policy!

Yes, my friends, this page may be dull but it's hugely important and usually forgotten and/or ignored. Don't be one of those people who doesn't include a Privacy Policy and has to pay for it later (often literally!). 

In this article, we are going to look at what a Privacy Policy is, what should be included, who needs one, and how to create your own Privacy Policy. 

Whether you're getting ready to launch your first website or if you already have a website but it doesn't have a Privacy Policy, I'm certain you'll learn a thing or two about protecting yourself and your business!

Note: It goes without saying that I'm a web designer/developer and NOT a lawyer so please consult a professional for the best advice. I can only speak to what I know is industry standard but if you have any questions or concerns, always consult a professional.
