3 easy ways to improve SEO for your Squarespace website

Traffic solves most problems.

And SEO helps driving traffic to your website. 

More traffic means that more people are finding and visiting your website. This results in more leads and eventually more customers.

Search is the number one driver of traffic to content web pages. The organic search is beating social media by an astounding 300%. This means that is it really important that search engines know about you and your services so that people find and visit you. 

In this part I will show you how to implement 3 of those tips specifically on your Squarespace website. 

Squarespace Tip 3 | The font matters

In addition to colours and images, fonts play an important part in website design. 

In recent years the font choices for websites have expanded greatly. While web designers previously were restricted to 'web safe' fonts ensuring maximum compatibility between browsers and operating systems, we can choose from a vast selection of professional typefaces today. This has revolutionised the aesthetics of web design bringing the possibilities of print design onto the screen. 

Squarespace Tip 2 | How to update your social media accounts with your Squarespace blog posts

One of my clients recently asked me about if there was an easy way to get her blog post updates straight to her Facebook account.

Of course it is :)

It is possible with Squarespace - just one of the many convenient features of the platform. You can automatically push new site content to your social media profiles.

Squarespace Tip 1 | Feature your blog posts with a SUMMARY BLOCK on any Squarespace page

Squarespace offers an easy and elegant solution: SUMMARY BLOCKS. Summary Blocks present your content (blog posts, products, gallery or project images, or events) in magazine-style layouts. 

It is just a matter of a few clicks and you can advertise your blog posts on any page within your website. Here is how it works.

How to create horizontal tabs in Squarespace

Last week one of my clients asked me to implement horizontal tabs on one of the pages in her Squarespace website. I looked into this before and could not really find anything about it. 

I wasn't luckier this time either. 

I tried to find alternatives and hoped my client would like the way they looked and worked. I implemented an accordion, anchor links within the page and as a third option I just arranged all the information in one, long page. Neither solution was not really what my client had in mind and also didn't look really nice or worked well on phones.

So I went back - and got lucky: For some reason I played around with a Menu Block and realised that they offer clickable items across the top to display categories like dinner or drinks.
