Google Webmaster Tools:
An Important Part of SEO
So many tools to help us rank better…. in one easy to find Google site!
In my list of Top 10 Must-Have WordPress Plugins, I mentioned the All-In-One Webmaster was a quick and easy way to verify with Google Webmaster tools.
However, many bloggers are skipping this powerhouse utility – while buying paid plugins – and overlooking an amazing source of information about how Google sees our blog.
Even with as much as I adored Google Webmaster BEFORE watching this… after watching it I realized I was missing out on some SUPER important stuff that was hurting me in the search engines!
You definitely want to enable email reporting so that Google will notify you if your site is ever hacked/etc.
Verifying with Google Webmaster Tools is very similar to verifying with Google analytics and for WordPress I highly recommend the “All-In-One Webmaster” as a great plugin to help you verify with Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools, Yahoo Tools, Bing Tools, Alexa and more!
I hope this helps you see how powerful Google Webmaster is for your blog and why getting set up with it is very important.
