Google Search Console (formerly known as Google Webmaster Tools), is a free platform provided to you by Google to help offer you insights into how Google interprets your website, any problems/errors, keyword and ranking data, security insights, along with several other configurations/reports/tools.

It is important that you set-up Console with your websites as you build them out. These insights you attain will be important to your overall SEO success, and will lead to much better indexing and subsequently rankings.

In this video I walk you through the following processes:

  • How to Setup a Google Account
  • Getting Google Search Console set-up
  • How to Verify your website in your Wordpress Back Office
  • Creating a SiteMap using All in One SEO
  • Submitting a SiteMap to Google
  • A Look Around of Google Search Console

I did exactly what Kyle says with the code and it won't verify. It says I should use the first option, ie. upload their download to my site. But where, how?
Kyle Premium Plus
You don't want to choose the upload, rather you want to grab the code as per the video training.

I did that and it wouldn't verify. It says to try another of the methods?

If you can't get the code to work, you can try to do it manually with the upload version: Let us know if this second method works.

So I tried to view my sitemap after I activated it in AIO SEO, and I got this message.

"This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below."

I am not sure what I did wrong. I followed all the steps like Kyle said. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Great training, Kyle. Thank you very much. Luckily, I went through the video once again and found that I had missed something out. Appreciate your training.

Going through the training and adding the code to Theme Header php file I get an error saying this.

Unable to communicate back with site to check for fatal errors, so the PHP change was reverted. You will need to upload your PHP file change by some other means, such as by using SFTP.

I went through the training twice to be sure I did not miss something. Any idea how to fix the problem?

I can't believe this! I had set up Console, had sitemap but did not submit the sitemap to Google! For some reason, I thought having sitemap was enough. Thank you for this training and I should be all set!
