How to connect Google Search Console
It is straightforward to add your website to Google Search Console — it just takes a couple of steps. Here, we’ll guide you through the process. First, you need to have a Google Search Console account. Don’t have an account? Sign up now for Google Search Console. Once you’ve done that, you can follow the steps below:
Google Search Console.
Login or click ‘Start Now’, if needed.
Click ‘Add a property’ under the search drop-down.
You can add up to 1000 properties to your Google Search Console account.
Enter your website URL in the box and click ‘Continue’.
Please make sure you enter your complete URL. For example, if your site is https:ftv-news.com it needs to be that exact URL. Don’t forget the / at the end of the URL. If your site uses WWW or is using HTTP you need to add properties for those as well. Google provides multiple ways of getting your site verified and they even suggest adding multiple ways because of security. If you are not sure what your site has, please speak with your host provider.
Click the arrow next to ‘HTML tag’ to expand the option.
There are several ways to verify your site, but we’ve made it easy for you.
How to install Google Analytics
First, you need a Google Analytics account. If you have a primary Google account that you use for other services like Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google+, or YouTube, then you should set up your Google Analytics using that Google account. Or you will need to create a new one.
This should be a Google account you plan to keep forever and that only you have access to. You can always grant access to your Google Analytics to other people down the road, but you don’t want someone else to have full control over it.
