In the current blog, we will discuss whether it is worth submitting your website to search engines or not.
It’s obvious that all search engines automatically identify the content of your website according to the title and when it is mentioned in other sources as well. So-called engine bots are programmed to accomplish these operations in advance and display it when it matches your request.
However, when you submit your website to search engines manually, it helps your website get discovered faster.
As this is not a step by step guide, we will name some of the ways used to submit a website to search engines.
Let’s make an example of Google SE. If you go to the Google Search Console website, you can follow the steps and accomplish all in there. After you input your website domain name, the next step is to go with the HTML tag method. The following step is to take a code, provided by the platform, and add it to your website. There are different ways to do it. It depends if you use plugins or do it manually.
For example, let’s take WordPress websites using the All In One SEO plugin, which is very popular on the market. It’s easy to go through a few steps and add a code to accomplish submitting. If you are not using the All In One SEO plugin, then you can add a code manually to your WP website, simply by pasting it to the Scripts in the Header Section. After saving this step you can continue in Google Search Console by taking the last step verifying your website and receiving a success message.
Another important feature in submitting your website to SE is creating or modifying an XML sitemap. An XML sitemap is a list of all the content on your website, for every single page. It accelerates the process of search engine bots discovering your content. Also, a sitemap is significant, when your website is commerce-oriented.
To sum up, submitting your website with accurate information tags helps your site to be recognized by various search engines you submit to.
