In this guide, we will walk you through how you can add your Easy Domains website to Google Search Console so you can use it to monitor your current search rankings.
Before you begin!
You will first need to create a Google Search Console account and set up your dashboard; to do this, please visit their page here and select URL Prefix, and type in your URL, including any prefixes such as "http://" or "https://", and the "www.".
On the following screen, please expand the option titled "HTML Tag" to reveal this snippet of code. Please copy this part of the snippet, if required, please temporarily paste it in a separate document or keep this tab open as we will need it at a later stage.
Now, please head to the Website Settings of your Easy Sites control panel by selecting the teal green cog icon from your dashboard. You can reach this page by logging in to your Easy Sites account and choosing the website you'd like to edit. If you are having trouble logging in, please simply give us a call at 01253 968004 or raise a support ticket and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
From the Website Settings page, please select Analytics Settings from the Quick Manage menu on the left. You will be presented with a field titled "Google Search Console ID"; please paste the aforementioned code into this field.
After pressing Save Changes at the bottom of the page, you will see a success message to the top right of the screen informing you that your changes have been saved.
You can now finish the verification from the Google Search Console. Please note that it can take the Search Console a few days to process the data from your site, so it’s natural to see very little in the Search Console at this stage.
And you're done!
