Google Search Console :- If we create a website, one of the most common issues we must address is how to list the site in search engines like Google.
Whenever I talk to newbies who do not know how search engines work this. On their website they think that Google or other search engines to get the list will have to pay the search engines. But in fact this is not true. You can show your website in a Google search for free. The only thing you need to work on is helping Google to find your blog.
Submit Your Blog to Google Search Console
In this guide, I submit the website to the Google search console will talk about in detail.
Google Search Console (formerly known by the name of Google Webmaster Tool.) Is a free tool with which you can control from your website is the search engine perspective.
First we need to understand what a site map is, and why submitting your sitemap to search engines is important.
What is a sitemap?
Sitemap is an XML file which contains URLs of your blog. This file crawlers to find your blog to all of the URLs helps. Several aspects of your site that the crawler follow. The sitemap of your website, such as how many URLs in size and is sitemap. So little to say as sitemap of your blog is a complete index, which you want to show search engine bots.
Simply says that your blog or all URLs in a sitemap file, and you can submit the file to the search engines so that they can know about your blog all pages. Search engines bots crawl and index your website to the sitemap files tend to follow.
For a normal website, we use an online sitemap generator to create a sitemap file and submit it to webmaster tools offered by Google and Bing. For WordPress blogs, we use plugins that automatically keep updating our sitemap file as we publish the new post. This way, you don’t have to resubmit a new sitemap after publishing new articles.
It’s a good practice to place your sitemap file link at the footer of your website so that search engine bots can quickly discover and follow the site map file and crawl your blog more effectively.
As we now know what a sitemap, so why not go to the next level.
How to generate a sitemap for your WordPress website or blog:
Sitemaps can be generated in different ways depending on the platform you are using for your website. For example, WordPress sitemaps can be easily generated using popular SEO plugin call Yoast SEO.
The other platform like so many online tools for static sites and many offline software will also help you sitemap generate. For the purpose of this post, I’m assuming that you know how to generate the sitemap is done and now we’ll talk about how to submit a sitemap to Google.
Submitting sitemaps to Google Search console:
When we submit a sitemap to Google when we do so with the help of Search console tool. I’m going to assume that you verify your site already has a Google search console and now you’ll have to login with your webmaster tool dashboard here, now you are ready to sitemap link.
Inside your Google Webmaster Tool dashboard, right-hand side, you “Sitemaps” an option by the name appears. Submit sitemap to see the second “More” please click on and you can here a new sitemap submit.
Click on “Add/Test Sitemap” to submit your sitemap file. On the same page, you can see which sitemaps are discovered by Google or which sitemap files have been previously submitted by you or someone from your team.
You have to generate the type of sitemap that you can submit it here. If you’re running a site with lots of images so I would suggest that you create an image sitemap too, as we have already spoken of Image SEO optimization. You can also create a video sitemap for your website.
If you are a new sitemap submit to blog index status to see if it might take a little time. Index status on the same page, you can also see how many URLs submit the sitemap has been through and how many links Google has yet to index. If you submit a separate image and video sitemap is that you can also see the status of those links.
