Google Search Console Definition & Meaning

What Is Google Search Console?

Google Search Console is a service offered by Google that allows users to monitor and troubleshoot their website’s presence in Google Search results.

It contains tools that enable Google to locate and crawl a website. Google Search Console can resolve indexing issues and reindex updated or new content. Its use is not a prerequisite for a website’s inclusion in Google’s search results.

Google Search Console helps businesses, digital marketers, and site administrators monitor the website’s traffic, understand a site’s demographics, keep an eye on click-through rates for individual search queries, and find out if a site violates Google’s policies.

It also notifies the user whenever spam is detected on a site and displays a list of sites that link to the user’s website. Google Search Console has tools for testing accelerated mobile pages and improving a website’s mobile responsiveness.

Registering for Google Search Console is free and involves verifying website ownership. All free accounts have usage limits.
