Google Webmaster Tools
We'll setup Google webmaster tools for your website
Google webmaster tool gives you the information as to how your website is performing on the search engines. But in order to access this information you need to set up an account using the following steps:
- You need to go to www.Google.com/webmasters/, sign to webmasters tools and log in.
- Click on ‘add a site’.
- Then you need to enter the URL of your website and click ’continue’.
Now the next step is to verify that it is your own website. In case you have logged in using Google analytics administrator and are using the Google analytics asynchronous tracking code you can verify your Google webmaster tools account by clicking the verify button.
If you are not a Google Analytics administrator or not using the such tracking code then you have three options of tracking your Google webmasters tools account to choose from.
- Add a Meta tag to your home page
- Upload a HTML file to your server
- Add a DNS record to your domain
Adding the Meta tag is the simplest way to manually verify your account. The HTML file and DNS options are fine, but these can take longer for Google to verify. Once your website is verified you will be able to click on its URL and see information about keywords, configuration options and more.
