Squarespace SEO:  How to write your description

In the description box, you want to type a brief summary about what the page is relevant too.  For example,  If you own a landscape company and the page you are writing a description for has to do with lawn maintenance, you will write something along the lines of:

“Affordable Lawn Care provided in Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Lehigh Acres”

Your keywords are:  Affordable, Lawn Care, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, & Lehigh Acres.

Try to use words that you believe people will type into a search engine like Google when looking for a new company and list your geographical location(s) where your office is located or in the area you service.

Repeat this process on the rest of the pages on your website.

***Please note that some Squarespace templates will physically display your description on your website.  Your description may appear in your header.  That is why its important to write a clear, concise description that goes with the flow of your page content.

Squarespace SEO Conclusion

In closing, its important that you write a description for each one of your webpages to optimize your Squarespace SEO.  Use words detailing what each page is about.  Include geographic locations on pages which display as such.  Keep your description short & sweet as it may be visible in your header to your prospective customers.  Thanks for reading part 4 of our Squarespace SEO series.
