hi guys Nicole Herrick here with you just wanting to take it through a little tutorial on how to submit your website to Google for the first time using google webmaster tools how to index it and also how to fetch as Google okay so we're just going to type in web whoops webmaster source into Google and it'll come up here and it says Google search console so we click on that and you need to sign in to your Google account whichever one you use of a gmail account or something okay and bring you to your search console so I already got a lot of websites in here that I manage so the first thing we're going to do to add the website is add a property I'm just going to grab my one that I want to do the example on okay here we go so I'm just going to open the one yeah now I wish you'd notice up here that this doesn't have the www in front of it so we do have to add this website address plus the website address W is a separate property okay but we'll just start with this one so I've copied that and then paste it into here okay take up that last little bit there and add give it a sec okay so now we need to add a you need to tell Google that you own that website so for this one this is the Shopify website so what I suggest would be add an alternate method and if I go HTML tag alright so what I need to do is copy this text here the control C or Apple C I need to go into my back end of my Shopify go and I need to go into the customized theme I need to go here sorry edit HTML CSS it alright so you will do it in you need to click in theme liquid open it up and just below head hit enter and then paste and then there you have your Google site verification now you're not going to save this because I'm not wanting to add this particular one to my site because it's going to be in the clients own but once you've done that it might take half an hour or an hour before the verify happens but you would then just click verify and it would say okay cool is it says no I'm sorry can't verify don't worry it just wait another half an hour and try again in some cases it might even take longer now if you are using Wix to create your website you can add a text record is probably the easiest so figure out where you've got your domain name from this one and will give you a site verification code so we want to do a text record so we just copy this and we go into our Wix account and we go into manage domains because you can change the the DNS settings and I'm gonna go here so if I go to I mean domains I'll go to events and I want to edit the DNS and I want to go down to text records click add another and then just paste the Google site verification into that text value it'll come up with the hostname up here and then we have blank space there change your PLL TTL to 30 minutes and then it's important to click Save DNS you might have to wait 30 minutes to an hour and then you can go back to the search console and click verify it can take less than that so yes hopefully it does take mess for you okay so once that is verified I'm going to go back to my search console and show you in a different one how to actually do the next step we might use my own website going alright the first thing you want to do is submit a sitemap so if I go to crawl and then sitemaps and there's really one existing but you need to built with a new one there won't be any sitemap in here so the first thing most sitemaps are just sitemap XML on the end of your with your home page so learn sitemap XML if you're not sure whether it's that and just click test and it will come up and say test complete your result and that shows that 31 web pages were tested so that shows me that yes that's definitely being one so then you would go back in and type in sitemap so now and then submit and that's submitting your website for indexing to Google now for the next step so now we want to go and fetch as Google all of our pages okay so the first thing I want to do is fetch and render the home page which is not going to have anything here just the home page for both desktop and smartphone we did that jump the desktop stitch and render and then we switch to smartphone fetch and render and then we just want to go to our site and grab each of our pages so I just want to grab the part after the main domain and paste it in here desktop search and render and smartphone section render and my next page just grabbing this and so on and you want to do that for each of your pages for each of your main pages if you have an e-commerce website you're also going to have an option to do all of the sub pages through all the links pages in it within it so but do it for each of your different pages so I would do this page grab that one bring it across this one grab that page bring it across now you've only got a certain amount of fetching renders that you can do per month you can then do them individually sorry with the links really saying that very well okay once you've got them all in over time they will say come up at their request indexing and here's what I mean by crawl this URL and it's direct links so if I've got an e-commerce website and I've got one page that says all products one page that says bikini is one piece that says bras bah blah instead of going to do each individual product page you would do each main category page page and you would click crawl this URL and it's directed links there is a monthly quota of ten that you have so that's why you shouldn't do you should only do your main pages you can do each of the pages individually after that you've got 500 submissions per month yes so just do your your main pages so that it gets all the sub pages of your products and then after you sort of start submitting a few of these it'll come up and say all I need I need you to tell me give me a bit more verification of what that you're definitely not a robot so it'll ask you you know choose the all the vehicles in these pictures and they'll come up and say choose all the street signs in these pictures and that's standard okay once you've done that you are good to go so just do that for all of them and you don't you are submitted to Google hope that helps bye .
