Move your website in 11 steps

The steps for moving a website to Squarespace or Weebly are similar to creating a new website. You can save a little time re-using some text and images, but you’ll have a few extra change-of-address tasks too.

A picture is worth a thousand words and helps with searches too

I learned recently that images play a role in improving your website's search rankings. It isn't an image by itself, but the words associated with an image, that can make a difference. There are three places where words are connected with an image:

  • The file name
  • Alt text (alternate text) that appears when the image can't be viewed
  • An optional caption that goes with the image

Using file names and image properties in Squarespace or Weebly to include possible search words is a good practice for improving the search rankings of your website.
