A couple of months ago... I was working with an agent, launching her new website, and low and behold... I was face to face with a Google launch of the new Google Search Console. Google hasn't done anything this big in 5 or more years!
If you have one of my new or even the old sites, you know I always set up a Google Analytics account for you and made sure your tracking ID was on your site to track the performance. Well, they have finally replaced the analytics page with a better mouse trap. Yep, better...
The new Search Console is easier to use and understand for most of us... BUT it's still new and I'm sure will have flaws here and there. So far I've added about 15 websites onto the new program and have had only one hiccup doing it.
THE FIRST BIG COOL THING:
The platform I build websites on, Wix, has partnered with Google on the launch, and you can actually sync it right from the dashboard of your website. It goes through your website and tells you exactly WHAT to fix on WHICH page and HOW to fix it. No guessing involved.
Then it sends in the Google Crawlers and indexes your website pages to optimize your SEO on Google!!! Yes, it does that right before your eyes, then lets you see how it indexed each page!
THE SECOND EVEN BIGGER COOL THING:
Any time you think your website has had enough content changes that warrants Google sending in their "Crawlers" again, you can request that and it does it, again, right in front of you!
THE THIRD COOLEST THING EVER:
SEO isn't just a word or acronym it really is a tangible thing. This new program really tells you what it wants to see on your website in order to optimize your SEO.
Here's a few things it looks for...
Did you use your keywords throughout your site?
Do you have at least one internal or external like per webpage?
Does every page have at least one internal link from another page?
And so on and so on...
HERE'S THE GREATEST PART OF ALL OF THIS...
Our Hybrid Websites are absolutely almost 100% on the money in all those areas. We have intentionally designed our templates around all those things that Google wants to see! Yeah us!!!
So when we run the analyzer through our sites, we have very little to fix if anything!
Okay, that is enough rambling, you get the idea... it's just great news for those of us wanting to generate leads online and get found!
