Search Console is a tool from Google that can help anyone with a website understand how it performs in Google search and what they can do to improve search views and send more relevant traffic to their targeted website.
Search Console gives information about how Google crawls, indexes, and serves websites. It can help site owners monitor and optimize search performance.
You don’t need to log into this tool every day. When Google discovers a new issue on your site, you’ll receive an email from Search Console notifying you. But you may want to check your account once a month or when you make changes to website content to make sure the data is stable. Learn more about managing your website with Search Console.
Follow these steps to get started:
