Getting to the top of google: pt.9

DAY: 11

Losing my position!

Evidently google still hasn't indexed the new http://www.jamesvanderzee.co.uk/ website, despite having used the addurl tool.

Next step is to https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools to get the site verified.

To do this I needed my helpful friends at barnesgraham internet marketing to add a verification meta tag as supplied by google to my home page.

Once this was done, I needed to add a sitemap.

The idea behind submitting a sitemap within the webmaster tools is to let google know about pages on your site that they might not otherwise discover - it's also a good way to remind them to check back for any updates!

Anyway, this required an xml feed of the sitemap which again barnesgraham internet marketing were able to help me with.

Processing sitemaps can take some time so I'll need to check back at google's webmaster tools again later to see if pages from my sitemap have been included in google's index.

Hopefully that'll get things moving with google and I'll be able to start looking at optimising the site!
