Setting up a website is not a one-off process.
In many ways, it’s like having a plant.
Building your website and optimising it to be found is like setting up the nutrient-rich soil.
Hitting publish for the first time is like planting a seed.
Now you just sit back and see what happens right?
No, much like that little seed, if you ignore it, it will wither away, much like your website traffic.
You have to monitor it, remove any bugs, and give it plenty of water and sunshine. I’ll leave the plant metaphor there.
So how do we keep it healthy and thriving? The answer? Well, one answer is Google Search Console. I often describe it as Google Analytics ugly cousin, but in fact, it’s a rich source of website nutrients, helping you diagnose, and understand your website, and if necessary bring it back to life.
Today we’ll look at the benefits of using Google’s Search Console as a tool in your SEO garden shed to keep traffic high and problems low.
