Google Search Console
Google Search Console is a free service offered by Google for web masters to monitor and optimize their websites for the Search Results.
You should know that nothing appears on the Search Results just that easy. Every single Posts, Pages, Links, Contents, URLs, First has to be “Indexed”.
Post Index, your contents start to appear in “Search Results”. Now if you’re thinking, if a person does this, you are truly wrong. There are billions of pages being “Published” and “Updated” each day. How can a human do that?
This is where “Googlebot” comes at play. Just like “MX Player” who searches the whole of your Phone to display and bring you all the available videos. The same way, Googlebot searches the whole Web to bring all the Contents for only one purpose, that is, Index!
This whole process has a short name, “Crawl”. Crawl happens like once in a week. Or maybe twice in a week. Let’s just believe Crawl does not have a fixed Schedule. So now the question rises. How will your pages be Indexed?
Until the next Crawl takes place, Or if Googlebot has missed some contents of our site. We can directly communicate with Google and or Googlebot, in order to Submit our Links and also to Request for Indexing our site through “Google Search Console”.
Isn’t that great? We are having a free tool to actually grow our business, our hobby or whatever you’d like to call.
