This Tool helps you understand how Google is seeing your site, what issues your site has, and what pages are performing better.

Add your Website:
First, your need to link your site to Google Search Console so it recognizes your website, and then we can move forward.
After you have entered your website domain you will be asked to verify your site. Copy the code on your website as described or you have an option if you are using WordPress Install a plugin called “Site Kit” it will automatically install Search console for you.
Index your Site:
Now what you need to do is add your Site map. If you are using WordPress you can easily install Yoast SEO Plugin and it will give an XML Sitemap use that link and copy on the tab below.
After clicking the general’s tab you can go to the features sections and use the option XML sitemap to get the link.
Once you have the link go to Google search console and add the link.
The next step is to start monitoring your web performance. It takes some time to show your website data but after its done, you will see this dashboard.
On your left, you can see many tabs such as performance, URL Inspection, Coverage, and many more.
I don’t have time to explain everything in this blog but will try to explain each step in detail in my upcoming blogs.
On your overview tab, you can view your errors that need improvements. This will help you correct the errors and eventually your sites Search ranking will improve.
It also has the option to inspect your URLs if somehow you think your page isn’t ranked on Google you use that link to inspect and link your missing page on Google Search.
Lastly, an interesting thing that you should use is the search queries section in Google Search Console.
Maybe you are familiar with it but what can do is use these single keywords and try to search for long-tail variations for them and add them to your blogs.
Also, you need to use LSI keywords to be clear LSI keywords are similar words to your keywords that can be used to rank your blog to the top.
LSI keywords are a new concept used to increase your search ranking as there are hundreds of blogs out there that are trying to be on top of Google search but not everyone can……
So LSI keywords are used for these purposes.
There is a website that I use and can also help you LSI-graph.
Use these queries into your Keyword research strategy implement these queries into your blogs and website etc.
Also, you can view what pages are ranking better and adjust your week pages accordingly.
Don’t ignore Google search console in your SEO process as it is one of the great tools that can help you know where you lack and what is you strength.
