What are the benefits of verifying your site with Google?

Improved SEO

Access to exclusive features, tools, and data can help optimize your site for search engines, resulting in improved SEO. For example, verified Google Search Console users can submit sitemaps, track website traffic, and identify errors or issues with the site using Search Console.

Get indexed faster

Site verification can help improve the chances of your pages being indexed quickly. By verifying your website, you inform Google that you are the legitimate owner of the site. This increases Google's confidence in the quality of your site and makes it more likely for them to crawl and index your pages.

Achieve faster profits

The primary goal of most businesses is to generate profits. While having a website can contribute to this, it may not be enough. In our opinion, it is important to have a website that is verified with Google, as it can maximize the benefits you can obtain from owning a website.

Increased security

Site verification can help to increase the security of your website by making it more difficult for unauthorized users to access your site's data or make changes to your site.
