Steve’s SEO tips Myth #1 I must submit my site to Google
SEO Leicester Google Tips #1
“I must submit my site to Google.”
The idea that you need to submit your website to Google to appear in search results (or rank) is rubbish. Google discovers content on its own by bots – also known as “web crawlers” – that are continually seeking the web for content to index.
But, if you’re making alterations to existing website pages or creating new ones, you can submit an updated sitemap of your website to Google to help its crawlers find your content faster.
Want to check to see if your site is currently indexed? Do a site search for your URL, like this: site:cagedfish.co.uk
Another great way to monitor is via Googles Search console, which can be found HERE
