This short post is going to briefly speak about Google Webmaster Tools and the benefits. Let's get straight into it.
WHAT IS IT?
It is a free tool provided by Google that allows you to get a great, top level overview on your website. This includes any feedback Google have on your website, perfomring keywords plus more.
WHAT DOES IT CONTAIN?
Whilst not as broad as website tools like Google Analytics it provides:
- Details on website structured data
- The facility to add your own structured data
- HTML Improvements
- Sitelinks that are currently used
- Search analysis (how people are searching to find your website)
- Crawl errors (this is vitally important)
- Option to re-index your website
- Submit sitemaps
WHAT DOES IT COST?
It is absolutely free, Google loves new websites and loves it when they are told about them, Google Webmaster Tools gives you the facility to tell them all about it and once they know, they are very quick to do things with your website.
HOW DO I GET IT?
The first step is to register your website, simply visit https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ to get started. Once you are signed up it is going to ask you to authenticate (to make sure you are the website owner). You can download a small file to upload to your website and then you can verify ownership.
