Metadata is information about your content, like its name or publication date, that’s stored within the content itself.

Adding metadata gives your content more context and helps visitors use your site more effectively. For example, blog posts can display metadata elements such as author names, categories, and tags. Many elements are clickable. For example, clicking on an author name takes you to a filtered page of posts by that author.

This guide provides an overview of metadata used in Squarespace and explains how to customize it throughout your site.
