**For clients who have Pugpig Site.
In this post we will outline:
- what Google Search Console is
- the reasons we need access to it
- links to instructions to either set it up or give us access.
Google Search Console was previously known as Webmaster Tools. It is a tool that allows us to check indexing status and more recently, ranking status of a website. It helps to see how Google views your site.
Core web vitals, included in the Google Search Console are a group of factors that Google recently considers important for user experience and will use these as ranking factors in search. Any issues will be highlighted here.
We need access to your Google Search Console so that we can:
- Check that sitemap has been submitted for indexing.
- Check that your site has been indexed and that all pages are indexed
- Check your core web vitals and correct any issues that are flagged
Adding a user to Google Search Console
If you have already set up Google Search Console all you need to do is give us access. To do so all you need to do is add firstname.lastname@example.org with publishing rights. More information about adding users here.
Setting up Google Search Console
If you have not yet set up Google Search Console for your site, you can follow the instructions here.
We recommend that you set it up at domain level at least. Once you have done this, go back to the previous point and add us as a user.
