SEO Hero | How to help Google index your website
SEO Hero says: Not so long ago, Google Search Console was calles Google Webmastertools. Instead of aiming the webmaster with the tools, Search Console is now more targeting ‘search’ in general. Eventually, Google is a search engine and not a ‘webmaster machine’.

It is not difficult to add your site to the search console. Your site has to get verified by a piece of code or a small html-file. After verification you can navigate to the menu and hit ‘Crawling’ and ‘Sitemaps’.
Your website has to have a sitemap. This is an XML file generated by the website itself and contains a link overview form any article, page, author, image, file, etc on your site. You can use a plugin on your website when it is made with a famous Content Management System. Add the link to the sitemap in the Search Console. SEO Hero uses WordPress for their sites.
After adding the sitemap to the search console, it might take up to two days for Google to send you an email. This email states that your site is indexed and can be found in the search engine. Keep in mind that it takes longer for Google to add keywords with your website in their database. The algorythm is taking more time for this than the crawler is taking to find and scan the site. In the Search Console at ‘Search Analysis’ every day new terms will be available. Google takes its time to add words to it.
Other handy features in the Search Console are:
- Internal links overview
- External links overview
- Crawling errors
All in all, Google Search Console is one of the tools a webmaster can not do without. We use the Search Console on a daily basis at SEO Hero.
