Google Search Console is a free search tool that monitors your website presence in Google searches. Specifically, this tool measures keywords and search data to show businesses how they rank on specific keyword searches and how they’re generating web traffic. Google Search Console serves as a measuring stick for the marketing efforts of a business.

Now you will need to verify that you are an owner of the website. On the screen shown, go to the “Alternative Methods” tab. There are three methods to verify your Google Search Console profile. The preferred method to use is the Google Analytics method.
1. "Google Analytics" - Click on the "Google Analytics" option and hit the "Verify" button. You may need to copy your Tracking ID Code from your Google Analytics account to help verify the ownership. To do so, under "Property", click "Tracking Info" and then go to "Tracking Code" to copy it.

In another web browser, open your home page website editor and paste that text line into the head section of your home page. Make sure to save the changes and now in the Google Search Console setup page, hit the “Verify” button.
3. "Domain Name Provider” - Click on the “Domain Name Provider” option and in the drop-down list, choose your company. Since it varies for each user, follow the instructions Google gives you. Make sure to save the changes and hit the “Verify” button in the Google Search Console setup page.
