Do you want to monitor your website’s overall health? Are you curious to know how to add Google Search Console to your website to resolve severe errors?
Google Search Console is a very useful web-monitoring tool that every blogger or website owner must have at their website. The best part is that it is completely free.
Today is my third day of blogging at Blogging Filter and as planned by me I will share everything which I am doing to develop this Blog website with you.
Now, I am going to tell you how to add your website to Google Search Console.
Steps to Add Your Website to Google Search Console
In the previous post, I posted how to add Google Analytics to WordPress website and similar steps will be applicable while adding Google search console.
Login to Google Search Console
You can follow this link to login to the Google Search Console dashboard. You can easily login with the help of Google. After that, you will be navigated to the dashboard where you can see a lot of options/menu on the left side.
Add a property in Search Console
You will see the “Add property” option at the top-left menu section. You need to click on that & after that, you will find two options.
Types of website properties:
There are two ways by which you can add your website to Google search console. It is a way to verify that the website belongs to you.
Let’s have a look at the types of properties mentioned on Google’s Help center:
Includes only URLs with the specified prefix, including the protocol (Http/https). If you want your property to match any protocol or subdomain (Http/https/www./m. and so on), consider adding a Domain property instead. See more details.
To verify immediately, follow the search steps described without the popup window being closed and then click “verify” on the popup window.
You can also save settings and resume the process later. You can always save your settings and restart the process later when you take a while to complete these steps, as mentioned below.
After you are done with the mentioned verification steps, you can finish verification by simply selecting the saved (but unverified) property in the property selector in the navigation bar, and selecting Verify.
