How to make my WordPress blog searchable via Google? That was one of the first questions when I started my blog. Here is a very easy way to get it done without meta tags.
Step 1 – Go to Google Search Console
Follow this link
Step 2 – Add Property – add the Link of your web page
Click “Add Property” and add the link to your web page.
Step 3 – Verify the Ownership of your Webpage
Google asks you to verify the ownership of your page, this is where most of us run into problems.
Step 4 – Get DNS Verification Record
Click “Alternative Method” then select “Domain Name Provider”. You should see the following page.
You should add this record to your DNS.
Step 5 – Open WordPress Domains Page
Go to your WordPress Admin page. Go to Domain tab.
Step 6 – Then Select “Name Servers and DNS”
Step 7 – Then Click on “DNS Records”
Step 8 – Add Google Site Verification Code as a Record
Step 9 – Verify it on Google
DNS record instantly takes into effect. Go back to Google Search Console and click on Verify.
