The first thing you need to do after you login to Google Search Console (it’s free to sign up) is to add your website.
First of all, if you are not using blogger, kindly visit this page and input your website url in the box provided, prove that you are not a robot and submit. (If you are a blogger user you don’t need this cause your blog would have been set to be visible on Google search engines automatically (you can see this when you login to your blogger Dashboard>>Settings>>Basic. Check if visibility to search engine is enabled).
After completing the above step kindly visit this page to add your website to Google search console.
Click on Add property.
It will bring out a popup page, input your site url in the box and click on Add when done.
After you might have added your website you’ll have to verify that you actually own the website. You can do this through four ways:
1. Add a DNS record to your domain’s configuration – You can use this option if you can sign in to your domain registrar or hosting provider and add a new DNS record.
2. Add a meta tag to your sites homepage – You can choose this option if you can edit your site’s HTML.
3. Upload an HTML file to your server – You can choose this option if you can upload new files to your site.
4. Link your Google Analytics account to Google Search Console – You can use this option if your site already has a Google Analytics tracking code that uses the asynchronous snippet. You must be an administrator on the analytics account for this to work.
Once your site is verified you’ll start seeing data on your website. Sometimes it can take a few hours before you see any data, but it’ll start rolling in.
The dashboard gives you a rough overview of everything from what keywords you are ranking for to how much traffic you are getting. In addition to that you’ll see if the Google bot is experiencing any crawl errors when going through your website, the number of sites linking to yours, and how many pages Google has indexed.
