Google Search Console

Check indexing status and optimize visibility of your website


    • The Search Console lets you, as a webmaster, check on the status of the indexing Google does on your site, helping you to optimize your page visibility in Google search results.
    • Get data, tools and diagnostics for a healthy, Google-friendly site. When you follow Google’s Webmaster Guidelines, Google can more easily find, index and rank your site. Also see: How to get your website on Google Search (formerly Google Webmaster Tools).
  • The main differences between Google Search Console and Google Analytics:
    • Google Search Console 
      • shows traffic for each keyword separately
      • does not cover search results from other search engines such as Bing and Yahoo.
    • Google Analytics
      • shows total traffic for a website, regardless of where the users came from
      • shows the search terms  used.
