Add a Webnode website to Google Search Engine
We’re all familiar with Google search engine, and it’s not necessary to introduce it in any way.
Search engines roam web pages regularly, and when they find a new site, they automatically add it to their search results. If your site is new and no other sites are link to yours page, Google may not find your site.
The best solution is to speed up this process and alert the search engine to the existence of your new site.
An excellent way is to use Google Search Console (formerly Google Webmaster Tools) to ensure automatic site indexing in the search engine. The service is completely free and i definitely recommend you to use it.
