How to make sure your blog is set up for indexing by Google
Welcome to Find It Friday in which we help you find the answers to your how to blog questions.
How do I make sure I’m set up for indexing by Google?
Today’s question is aimed at those of you who are in the process of setting up a WordPress blog. It’s easy to miss a step when you are starting out, and sometimes beginners overlook this one.
Usually you don’t want Google to index your pages while you are building your site, but do remember to change your settings when your site is ready to go live.
Go to Settings > Privacy.
Here, you will see three Site Visibility options. Click Allow search engines to index this site. This allows everyone to read your blog and enables your blog to be included in search engine results and other content sites.
