One of the most important components of Search Engine Marketing is monitoring your site’s performance. An effective (and free) tool to help you monitor your site from a search engine’s perspective is Google Webmaster Tools.
This short video shows you how to register your site with Google Webmaster Tools:
Hello and welcome to Gnome Tips! Today we will show you how to register your site with Google Webmaster Tools.
First, use your Google account to log into the Google Webmaster Tools dashboard. From there, click on the “Add a site” button. Next, type in your site’s URL in the box that pops up, and click the “Continue” button.
Now, you need to complete the verification process to prove to Google that you’re actually your site’s owner. To accomplish this, Google recommends uploading a verification file to your Web server’s root directory.
Once you’ve uploaded the file, click on the “Verify” button. If all goes well, you will see a “Verification successful” message, and your site will be registered.
