What is Google webmaster tool?

by | Mar 3, 2017 | blogging, WordPress optimization | 0 comments

Every time I create a new site I register it with Google Webmaster tool.

Why?

  • I want to make Google pick up the new site quickly, so I submit/check a sitemap for the website.
  • List the internal and external pages that link to your website.
  • You can check the crawl rate of the Google bots for your website and view the statistics.
  • Generate/check the robots.txt file for your website.
  • Check what keyword searches led the site to being displayed in the Google search engine results pages and click-through rates for them.
  • Check statistics about how Google has indexed your website and whether it has found any issues while doing so.
  • Set a preferred domain name (e.g. yourdomain.com over www.yourdomain.com or vice versa) which will determine how the site URL will be displayed in search engine results pages.
  • Get notification, if there is some problem with your site, for example there is a hacked content or it is blacklisted by Google.

How?

Visit the Google Webmaster Tools web page:

http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/

You will be asked to log in or create a new account. The registration process is simple and you should not experience any troubles. You will need to be able to access the folder where your website is (through your hosting account, or an FTP client) and upload a file to prove that you are an owner of the site.
