Video 1: Google think you have problems.
Every website has problems, issues and errors. The bigger the website, the more of them you’re likely to find.
Yet some of these issues can have a negative impact on the number of visitors that Google send you.
Fortunately Google can tell you exactly what’s wrong, without getting bogged down in minor issues that don’t matter.
Fixing these issues can have a major impact on how Google view and present your website.

If you don’t yet have access to your Google Search Console:
Don’t worry. Getting setup is very quick and simple.
Note that you don’t necessarily need the account to watch the course.
So it’s up to you whether you want to set it up now or later.
(1) Sign in to Google Search Console with your Google account.
(2) Once you’re in, click on add a site.
(3) Verify that you’re the owner of the site by doing one of the following:
– upload a file to your server
– add a meta tag to your website’s HTML
– Add a new DNS record
– Use your Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager account
- Don’t worry if this is too technical. Ask whoever handles your website to set up your account.
- And Google have a help page to assist if you have issues.
- Sometimes a new account takes a few days to start populating with data. If this is the case you should still continue with the course.
