Google Search Console (formerly known as Google Webmaster Tools) is an incredibly powerful console to see advanced information about your site; analyze issues, and fix them proactively; all in one place.
Proper setup, analysis and remedial steps taken on GSC can make your Website High Quality and easy to Rank, thereby Boosting Traffic. When you combine data from GSC with that of Google Analytics; you also get access to fine grained analytics regarding your site rankings and performance in search engines.
One way to explain Google Search Console is with the analogy a Parent-Teacher Meeting, with Google being the Teacher, your website being the Child, and you being the Parent. These meetings are a wonderful opportunity to get to know:
- How are your child’s grades and report cards? (Traffic & Ranks of your website)
- How is her attendance, and engagement levels in classes? (Crawl statistics and page speeds)
- How social is she, and what are her favorite subjects? (Top Linked Pages, Ranks in various countries)
- Are there any serious infractions or behavior issues? (Manual Penalties, and other notices like lack of mobile friendliness, pages with issues)
- An opportunity for the parents to comment on reasons for issues (Some issue at home, leading to problems at school), and the remedial action taken.
- An opportunity for the parents to communicate the child’s areas of interest and interesting work done (Submitting a sitemap of your website).
Unfortunately, a vast majority of sites don’t have GSC setup; or their IT departments or website agencies don’t share access or data with management, as a lack of business priority. This means you miss out on the vital two-way interaction as above.
