You've created an amazing website on Ucraft and wondering how to get more insight on your site views and performance optimizations for different search results?

No matter whether you're a newbie or already have an experience in this field, you'll find all the answers needed to understand how to monitor your site's performance in this article.

Overview

Here and now, we'll explain how to confirm your ownership on Google Search Console to have access to its private Google Search data and keep an eye on how Google Search crawls it.

Google states, that verification is the process of proving that you own the site that you claim to own. Of course, Google will discover your site even if you don’t submit its URL, but it will take some time. Since every search engine crawls the Internet in order to index pages, submitting your site will speed things up. Moreover, if you make changes to your website, you can just re-submit it. By re-submitting your site, you’ll keep Google in the know and get it to index your website’s latest version. Furthermore, you can submit your site to Bing, Yandex and Yahoo because the more, the merrier.

!Note: You cannot verify your website using the subdomain provided by Ucraft.
And most importantly use Custom Domain instead, or other verification method rather than HTML tag/file, on the Free Website Plan..

Submit My Site To Google
