Share:

Integrating your Portfoliobox site with Google Search Console is a powerful way to enhance your SEO efforts. It provides invaluable insights into how your site is performing in search results, allowing you to optimise your content, identify issues, and track your site's presence on Google. Here's how you can easily integrate Google Search Console with your Portfoliobox site and leverage its features to boost your SEO.

Step 1: Add Your Site to Google Search Console

To get started, you need to add your site to Google Search Console. Follow these steps:

  1. Open your web browser and go to the Google Search Console. Log in with your Google account.
  2. From the property dropdown, select "Add a new property."
  3. Enter your domain with the "https://" protocol (e.g., https://www.domain.com) in the URL prefix option.
  4. Select the HTML tag method from the list of verification methods.
  5. Copy the string of numbers and letters in between the quotations that appear after "content=".
  6. Keep this window open, as you'll need to use this verification ID shortly

Step 2: Paste the Tag in Your Portfoliobox Admin Panel

Next, you need to paste the verification ID into your Portfoliobox admin panel:

  1. Log in to your Portfoliobox admin panel, navigate to Settings, then General Settings, and select Meta Verification
  2. In the first field, enter: "google-site-verification"
  3. In the second field, paste the verification ID you copied from the Google Search Console
  4. Click on "Save Meta Tag" to apply the changes

Step 3: Verify Your Site

The final step is to verify your site in Google Search Console:

  1. Go back to the Google Search Console window.
  2. Click the "Verify" button to complete the process. If you’ve closed the property verification window, open the property dropdown, select the domain you want to verify, choose the HTML tag option, and click "Verify."

Once your site is verified, Google Search Console will start collecting data about your website. This data can be used to:

  • Monitor Performance: Track how your site is performing in Google Search results.
  • Identify Issues: Find and fix issues affecting your site's performance.
  • Optimize Content: Understand which keywords and queries bring traffic to your site and optimize your content accordingly.
