Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the most important thing if you own, manage, monetize, or promote online content with Google. The website you have may be smaller or bigger than mine and provide different content, but the optimization that we are going to implement should apply to all types of website.


Google doesn’t require you to submit your site to their system to appear in the search results. However, you can help Google to find your site faster by using Google Search Console and Structured Data.

Google Search Console is a place for you to submit the sitemap of your website to Google. The console improves your performance on Google search by indexing your site and alerting if there is any issue from your sire and suggesting how to fix it.

Here is how you submit your site to Google Search Console:

1. Step 1: Register Google Search Console
