    IJust created a new website for our cleaning company. I'm sure there are some issues that need to be addressed, I just need to know what they :-)

    SEO Squarespace automatically optimizes their websites they say. Anything I need to do in addition to what they do?

    Want to hear all the suggestions, tips and criticism!

    Thanks

    First of all, no website editor will "automatically optimize" websites. No website editor can "automatically optimize" websites. That's a marketing exercise that depends on several variables far too complex for basic web editors to handle. What you'll need to do depends on how much business you want to generate, your specific target market, and your competition.

    With that said, you've got decent copy but things seem a little disorganized. One thing I would suggest is to break up your copy into smaller pages so that sections with one column can be on a page and sections with two columns can be on a separate page. That will also help from an SEO point of view in that you can better theme your individual pages based on the individual services offered, for example.

    Your coupons are a good idea, but put "limit 1 per customer. May not be combined with any other offer" on them...or you will get screwed. You may also want to promote them on various coupon sites, etc. Even after all these years, coupon sites can still draw quite a bit of traffic. Just don't do any of the Groupon/WagJag scams.

    Not crazy about the light green subheadings. They're too hard to read against the white. Use the dark blue instead.

    There are other things that others will probably want to chime in on, so I'll let them.

    Hi - My first impression is that it is OK for content - but I have a problem with any of the online site builders in that they provide you with templates and so you start out with something that is not your own.
    There is nothing wrong with that if you're a business trying to save some bucks and not willing to invest in a professionally made site, and you are not planning to put yourself forward as a designer. And for that purpose, Squarespace is better than some.
    But as Game says - there is no way they can optimize your site for SEO - that depends so much on your own content, and how you put it into the site. If you take his advice above, it will help you.

    I like the color you used. To me also there is so much content. I think keeping text ITALIC is also not the best idea. Why not add more section to the site so people can scroll down but there is no need to put so much text in each section. I think those links on top of main message "Click here to book..." is so distractive so it make both links and message unreadable.
