When implementing an SEO campaign, the main goal is to have your site rank at the top of Google when relevant keywords are searched. Because Google Search Console lets you know how Google is reading your website and how it is shown in search results, it is a vital and helpful tool. The Google Search Console dashboard is an educational space that provides information regarding which pages on your site are having trouble being crawled, which pages are being indexed, what the most popular keywords on your site are, who is linking to your site, and much more.
This information can be used to enhance many elements of your site, which can directly impact your Google rankings. Knowledge is power, so having this detailed info regarding your site performance will help you make better-informed decisions regarding future SEO strategies.
Are you paying for an SEO service? If so, your site has most likely been added and verified with Google Search Console. However, how do you know if your site is being monitored and how can you detect potential errors? If you are not sure, it may be time to sit down with your marketing team to discuss these topics.
