9 Reasons Why You Must Use Google Search Console For Your Site
Following are some of these benefits that I am going to write:
By using Google Search Console you can submit a sitemap of your website to Google Search which helps in quick indexing of your web pages. A sitemap tells Search Engines about all the pages that exist on your site which helps to index your site more easily and effectively.
Using webmasters tools you can also tell Google how to crawl your website. You can also increase or decrease the crawling speed.
You can also check the index status of your website pages with help of Google Search Console. You will get to know how many of your site pages are not indexed in Google and why?
