First, make sure your Squarespace SSL certificate is active. Google shows preference to websites that have SSL activated. Second, make sure you connect your site to Google Search Console, and submit a sitemap to the console so that Google can index your website.
Third, make sure your permalinks, or URL slugs, are clean. You want to be sure you don’t have a bunch of unnecessary words in the slug. Fourth, compress your images so that your site speed remains fast. A slow website can affect your ranking.
