In my post, I show you how to get Google to index your website step by step.

Google searches constantly searches for new content. You can help Google find and index your website.

Before your blog content can appear on Google, Google has to scan your content.

Once scanned, Google’s algorithm decides if it should appear on Google.

Google’s process is frustrating for new websites because it takes time for Google to complete its checks.

Google has a free tool for website owners to notify Google when they launch a new website or publish a new post.

The free tool is called Google Search Console.

Let’s get Google to index your website.
