The Tiny Vlog: Improve Website Ranking with Google Webmaster Tools


Hi, I’m Brent Curry, Web Marketing
Specialist with Tiny Frog Technologies. Today I want to talk about setting up
your Google webmaster tools account and linking in your sitemap. This is
especially important if you are planning on blogging or adding news to your site,
keeping your content fresh. It basically just streamlines the indexing within the
Google search engine. So let’s take a look. One of the main reasons I like to
recommend setting up webmaster tools is not only because you get a number of
interesting tools within the account but more because – especially if you have a
blog, or you’re going to be keeping your site content fresh by adding new content –
it’s a way to really streamline the indexing of that content so you don’t
have to worry about submitting URLs or waiting for spiders to find these new
pages. Basically, you just link your site, set up webmaster tools, and then tell it
where your sitemap is within your site. That sitemap then is a dynamic tool
already within your WordPress site so as you’re adding new pages, the sitemaps get updated, Google sees the sitemap, sees the new pages and they get
then put into the index right away. So that’s the main reason that we recommend it. It’s very simple to set up. The first thing you need to do is verify ownership
of your account. The easiest way to do that is to log in using the exact same
account that you have your Google Analytics account within. Make sure that
you have admin rights to that account. We’re going to add our site here. Then
it’s going to ask us to validate this particular site, verify our ownership. Go
to alternate methods and you should see an option for Google Analytics here. And
we just click verify and I like the Google Analytics method because it tends to be very fast. You don’t have to go make changes to site, add a meta tag, add an HTML file, or any of that. We’ve now verified ownership because we’re working
within the same account as our Google Analytics
account. And then to add the sitemap, we can go here. It looks like we’ve already
got it added but you would go to the same place within a new account as well. And you’ll see we have a button in the upper right here to add / test a sitemap. Typical sitemap URL name is “this sitemap dot XML” but you’ll want to make sure that
that is the sitemap is – where your sitemap is located. And that is basically
it, we now have verified the account and link to our site map into webmaster
tools so that as we add new blog posts it will find those for us. Thank you for
your time, I hope you enjoyed the topic today. If you have any questions about
web marketing services or web marketing in general please reach out to us, we’d
