After verifying a website with Google Search Console

Improve the search presence of your website. This is the message you'll obtain after verifying your website with Google Search Console.

Google systems show that you recently verified your site in Search Console (or created a site with Blogger or Google Sites which does this automatically). We have some tips to help you get the most of this free service and maximize your site performance on Google Search.

Set up your Search Console account now:

1) Add all your website versions

Make sure you add separate Search Console properties for all URL variations that your site supports, including https, http, www, and non-www.

2) Select your preferred version

Choose whether you want your site to appear with or without "www" in Google Search.

3) Select target country

Set your geographic preference if your site targets users in a specific country.

4) Share access with co-workers

If you want other people to access your error reports and search analytics in Search Console, add them with the appropriate access levels.

5) Submit a sitemap file

This helps Google better understand how to crawl your site.

6) Learn how to work with Search Console
