Profile photo of Freedom Blogger Submitted by Freedom Blogger April 14, 2016

So you are a new website owner!

Or maybe a new blogger?! …

Well, you are here because you want to learn how to make sure your website is found on Google.

As you should already be learning; the search engines are one of the best sources of free organic and targeted traffic online.

In particular one search engine, Google.com

Google is pretty much the most popular search engine in the world.

And if your website or blog site is not found on Google, and you are not ranking any content in their search results, you are leaving a lot of free targeted traffic on the table!

So, it is very important for the success online to make sure your website is found on Google.

Today, you are going to learn how to do the proper setup to make sure your site is indexed by Google – and so you can start ranking content in the search engine results pages (known as SERP).

The process is very simple.

Let’s review it step by step.

I am going to assume that you are building a WordPress Site here. But, if you are using another type of website platform, the process is similar.

How to Make Sure Your Website is Found On Google?

1 – You buy a Domain Name.

2 – You setup the Hosting.

3 – You Install the WordPress Platform.

4 – Install a SEO Plugin (SEO by Yoast is the best one, in my opinion).

5 – Create a XML Sitemap Page using the Yoast SEO Plugin.

6 – Tell your WP Site to Allow the Search Engines to Index your site.

7 – Add Pinging Sites in the ‘Writing’ Settings of your WP Site (I will share my list with you; link is below the screenshot image).

Here is my List of Pinging Sites


8 – Use a Search Engine Submission Service to submit your website to Google and other search engines as well.

9 – Sign-in to your Gmail and get a Google Analytics Account and a Google Webmasters Tools Account.

10 – Add your new website to your Google Analytics Account and to your Google Webmasters Tools Account (you should do Google Analytics first – I have a video tutorial below).


11 – You need to Allow the Google Analytics Tool to Track your entire website. Either get a WP Theme that allows you to Add Code between the element of your site OR use a Google Analytics Plugin.

12 – When you are adding your site to your Google Webmasters Tools you will need to Verify the ownership of your site; the fastest method would be via Google Analytics.


13 – Add your website’s XML Sitemap to your Google Webmasters Tools Account.


14 – Follow the suggested tips Google will tell you inside your Webmasters Tools Account.


15 – Your site is now ready to be Indexed in Google and ready for you to start ranking content in the search engine results pages!

    There is something to be done so that a WordPress site can be found on Google – at least, this is the platform I utilize!

    Leaving the “search engine visibility” box empty under the Reading setting is very critical.

    If a blogger never minds this, Google is going to be discouraged from indexing the site!

    However, I agree with the processes you have described in this piece!

      Hi Celine!

      YEs, you have to make sure the search engines (especially Google) is aware of your new site. And make sure that their search engine is indexing your entire site.

      You know, just by allowing your WordPress site to be crawled by the search engine bots is really enough – but it would take longer for them to really index your entire site – compared to making sure you follow this entire process.

      By following these simple tips, Google will index your entire site a lot faster and they will love you for taking the time to give them all the details about your site 😉

      Thanks for passing by and leaving a comment, Celine!

      Have a wonderful week! 😀

        Hi Freddie,
        Of course following the entire process would bring about faster indexing for bloggers.
        However, checking on the buttons should be the starting point for WordPress users who will want their sites to be indexed!

    Every blogger must ensure that their website is found on the search engines – especially on Google! Doing what the needful becomes key to getting indexed.

    With WordPress, there are lots of automatic processes with plugins. Thankfully, your post has just simplified the processes.

    I have no idea that one can create sitemap using Yoast SEO plugin! Thanks for sharing this post! 😉

      Hey Sarah!

      Yup! … every new blogger / or website owner – should make sure their entire site is being indexed in the search engines – especially Google.

      I love the WordPress Platform because of the simplicity of it and the variety in their Plugins Library.

      It really makes it easier for a newbie to get going online and start ranking in the search engines.

      I’m glad that you learned something new from this post Sarah! 😀

      Awesome!

      Keep up the great work!

      Have a wonderful week! :)
