So, you’ve developed or designed an amazing site for yourself or for your client. You’ve put together some valuable content and worked on the design, and gathered a lot of feedback. Now, you’re finally feeling ready to share it with the world.
And as soon as you publish your new site for everyone to see, all of your content will immediately start showing up in Google, right? So how do you do it?
Well, it’s quite simple to submit your website to google but, before that, you need to understand how Google finds your content. Google uses its own big set of computers to crawl billions of pages from the web. This is called crawlers or google bots. For any crawler to start digging into your website for content it requires a sitemap date that is to be submitted to Google using the Google webmaster tool. Once the crawling process is completed google then sends all the results to Google index. During this crawling process, the crawlers search for things such as title tags, meta description, alt tags, and more.
