How to Submit URL to GSC?
Google keeps track of the websites and data with the help of bots. These bots sneak into the websites from time to time to check if they are up to Google’s guidelines or not. If any error is found, Google immediately takes action.
If Google bots find information on the websites correct and up to date, Google starts displaying that information on the search result’s page. But before allowing Google bots to check your website, you need to submit the URL of your website to the Google Search Console.
When you will submit your URL, the Google bots will start sneaking into your website. Remember that submission of URLs is a one-time process. It takes a series of steps to follow for submission.
If your website is search engine optimized, I will suggest you do it today.
What Google Bots Look for When Sneaking in Your Website
If you read the guidelines from Google, it has all the detailed criteria lists which are a lot. There are tons of dos and don’ts to follow. But I will mention a few of them which are most important.
So, you need to focus on:
– Information that you are providing
– Keywords being used in title
– Meta Tags
– Meta Descriptions
– Heading Tags such as H1, H2, etc.
– Paragraph Content
– Images that are used
The process of submitting a URL address is just like sending an invitation to the Google bots to scan your website. If the website is accurate on all the guidelines, Google bots will start displaying your website in the search result. It does not guarantee the ranking of your website. The ranking is upgraded through SEO then. In actuality, making the search engine in the results is the result of a good SEO strategic implementation.
