How to Make Sure Your Website is Found On Google?


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 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 </head> 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!

These would be the simple steps you need to take when you have a brand new website online – in order to get it indexed in Google as soon as possible.

  2. 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!

    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.

    • 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! 😀

  5. Hi Freddie,

    Thanks for sharing. It was great to read another article by you.

    I actually went step by step and set up my site in google analytics as I was reading the tutorial.

    It was very easy to follow and I’m sure even the newest of newbies can benefit from this information.

    I love your post on setting up a wordpress blog and am little by little going through it.

    Take care my friend,


  6. Hello Freedom Blogger,

    Your instructions are dead on. Google usually doesn’t find a new site, by itself, sometimes for months even. And beginners can get frustrated or panicked over this. However, it’s usually pretty easy to get a website indexed if you follow a guide like this.

    Using site maps always works for me. I can get a website indexed usually by the next.
