Submitting your blog/website to search engine is the most useful way to get traffic. this kind of traffic called natural traffic. we all know very popular search engine Google, not only google bing and yahoo too. before you submit your website to search engines you must know one thing, genuine original contents are preferred by search engines. duplicate contents can reduce your blog quality and search engines no more show interests in crawling your blog.
Google webmasters :
Google is the most used search engine by people. so prefer Google to submit your site. just visit the
google webmasters web page and sign in. in search console, you can see ADD PROPERTY option in the red button just click it. enter your blog name with HTTP or https. both are different. if you previously used HTTP and migrated to https that’s not a problem. you can redirect HTTP to https in your hosting control panel. example https://www.example.com and click add.
If you are using blogger platform you do not need to verify you are the owner of the website. because you logged in with same Gmail id you used to log in blogger. other platforms like WordPress may ask verification to ensure your own website . just copy and past verification id between head tags.
In blogger Login > select blog > theme > Edit HTML > Find ctrl+F and enter <head> hit enter thats it.
once verified, submit a sitemap to google webmaster. follow the link to enter dashboard . in dashboard see crawl errors, search analytics, and sitemaps. click sitemap ADD/Test sitemap in orange button and enter your blog name sitemap.xml like below…
once you submitted your website no need of submitting again and again sitemaps. if your content is interesting and genuine google shows deep interest to crawl and index your website. indexing your website take sometimes long. in that case, don’t worry you can request index option manually from fetch as Google.
In google webmaster left side column Crawl > Fetch as Google > enter your important page URL manually and fetch. you have desktop and mobile also normal fetch, fetch and render options. this requesting method is limited you can only submit ten numbers of URLs per day. this option only for exception case. as long you post original content no need of fetch as google or submitting sitemap again and again.
