When it comes to SEO strategy the most important thing is to get your website on the top results of the SERP. Every individual website is competing to rank high on the SERP. SERP is the short form for the search engine result page.
But before getting into the top results of the SERP there are many things to be done. In this article, we are going to talk about just the basics. “How to get your website on Google?”
Without a doubt, Google has dominated the search engine market. According to statista.com as of June 2021, Google managed to maintain 92.47% of the search engine market share. So if you want to get more traffic it is important to set up your website google friendly.
According to Google guidelines, Google doesn’t accept any payments to show your information on organic search results.
As a business, you need to understand this clearly. Let’s say you are investing in google ads and continue to do so. But that doesn’t mean you will automatically get a higher rank in SERP.
Sometimes PPC advertisers expect to see their website on search results. If you want that to happen focus on a search engine optimization (SEO) strategy.
To get googles attention you only have to do one thing. Post your website on the internet.

So how can we check whether our website is indexed successfully or not? You can do the following steps.

Then enter. If your website is already on the index it will return results as follows. Remember if you want to check a specific URL you can follow the same search pattern also.
This step is the basic procedure to check your website. But to step up your game you can add your website to the google search console and check your website results there.
