Adding a site title

Your site title is the name of your site, which could be your own name, a business's name, the name of your blog, or your personal brand. Depending on your template, the site title appears in the header or a top corner of each page of your site.  

This guide explains how to add a site title and how site titles work throughout Squarespace.

Note: To change the title of your URL, like yoursite.squarespace.com, visit Built-in domains. To add a domain to your site, like www.yoursite.com, you can register a Squarespace Domain or connect a third-party domain.

Add or edit your site title

When you create a new trial site, you’re invited to add a site title. If you skip this step, you’ll see "Your Site Title" as placeholder text.

To edit this, hover over the title text on any page and click Edit.

This opens the Logo & Title panel. In the Site Title box, enter a site title. You can also add a tag line, which appears with the site title on certain templates. Click Save to publish your changes. 

Note: If you don't see the Edit annotation, collapse the site preview by clicking the arrow in the top-left corner of your site, or pressing the Escape key. You can also find the Logo & Title panel from your Home Menu by clicking Design, then Logo & Title.

Appearance and behavior

Your site title appears on all pages of your site. The default position and options to move it vary by template. It always leads to your homepage when it’s clicked.

To change the design of your site title, like its font, color, size, or position, use the Style Editor.

Squarespace doesn't have a built-in option for directing a site title to a different page other than your homepage. However, you can accomplish this with some custom code. This topic has come up in our Answers forum, and you can view this post for more information and sample code. Note that this is an advanced modification that falls outside the scope of Squarespace support.

Use a logo instead

For a personal touch, you might want to use a logo image instead of a text-only title. When you upload a logo, it will appear in the same position as the site title. It will also direct to your homepage when clicked.

We recommend keeping text in the Site Title field, even when you’re using a logo. Search engines still index the site title and display it in search results, so it's a best practice to keep it there for SEO. Additionally, the site title displays in browser tabs, helping visitors identify the site at a glance.

Some templates display the site title on mobile or smaller displays, even when you’ve uploaded a logo image. For a full list of this behavior, see our logo display comparison table

Site title and SEO

Your site title plays a key role in representing your site to potential visitors in search engine results. If your site title is showing incorrectly in Google, you can request a re-index:

  1. Use the steps above to make any changes to your site title.
  2. Submit your site to Google Search Console and request a re-index to update your site's information.
