Advanced Tips for Effective Tag Filtering on Squarespace

Imagine you’re browsing in a book shop looking for vegan cookbooks; to do this you would head straight for the “Food & Drink” section and browse any books tagged “Vegan.”

Categories and tags help organize content to make it more navigable for visitors as well as Google. In this article, we’ll discover how to set up filters on Squarespace without using plugins.

Filter by Tags

Categories and tags are used to organize blog posts into themes, while tags provide further description or flagging within those themes (for instance if it discusses growing your business you might tag it with “business”, “small business” or “entrepreneurship”). Both features help with organizing and describing content to better help Google understand what your post is about.

Summary Blocks can help you optimize the experience on both single pages and across multiple ones on your website, with these blocks providing filters for choosing which Collection items display on a targeted page by category or tag; perfect for use with Index Pages, Portfolio pages (excluding Hover layouts ) and Gallery Sections – not forgetting adding categories and tags directly into products in your store!

Once your content has been organized and/or tagged, you can easily create pages dedicated to particular themes or topics on your site. These pages offer value and context to potential clients while ranking highly in search results. They’re also great opportunities to link directly to collections; for instance if there’s a page for all blue shoes you could include filters by shoe color on that page that direct people directly towards that collection – renaming or merging categories won’t automatically redirect to these filtered pages!

Filter by Category

Categories are a way of organizing similar content on your website like blog posts, products or services into a logical framework. Tags serve to further describe and label this information and are different than categories in that they can include multiple words at once (or string of words). Using tags allows you to be very specific when describing things such as travel – so when someone searches on Google for “travel”, posts tagged with those terms might help them locate your content more quickly.

Categories and tags also play an essential part in SEO by informing Google what the focus of your site is. Utilizing categories and tags within content creation is vitally important, but before blindly applying tags without considering why they belong there.

Filters allow users to filter by category in collection pages or with summary blocks on any page, showing you a list of items in that collection based on that category and giving you options to show only specific ones or all. Renaming or merging categories/tags doesn’t impact links that depend on these specific ones or redirect to them if any change occurs – just updating items affected directly.

Filter by Subcategory

Category filters can help your website remain organized, while helping visitors quickly locate what they’re searching for. From using Squarespace itself or third-party plugins, there are multiple methods available to you for filtering categories on your site.

Tags are used to categorize blog posts further; for instance, if your post covers expanding a business, tags could include terms such as “business,” “small business” and “entrepreneurship.” Categories and tags can help SEO by informing Google what your site’s about.

As soon as you create a category, it will automatically be added to the navigation of your website. While this can be beneficial, it’s also essential that the category names don’t become too long or confusing; having three separate navigation links on your website such as Womens, WOMENS and women’s can be confusing for visitors.

Filter by category or tag in your homepage search box, as well as adding them to collection items such as gallery items, products, events or videos. Some templates support linking directly to collection items filtered by category or tag for easy browsing.

Filter by Name

If you want to filter content by name, using a plugin for Squarespace is an effective way of creating links to specific categories without creating pages entirely. For instance, selecting “breakfast” from your main menu will take visitors directly to all blog posts tagged as breakfast – this feature is especially beneficial for bloggers with extensive content.

This plugin works on both Squarespace 7 and 7.1 and can be used on blocks that display List Collections such as the Summary Block and Gallery Block, as well as templates that employ index structures for galleries or portfolios. Unfortunately, however, it won’t support 7.1’s new Fluid Engine gallery layout.
