How to connect with Google Search Console
Google Search Console (formerly Google Webmaster) is a free service offered by Google that helps you monitor and maintain your site's presence in Google Search results.
Connecting your store with Google Search Console and SEO Manager helps you understand how Google views your store and optimize its performance in search results. Plus, this connection gives SEO Manager the opportunity to send Google data about your store on a continuing basis.
SEO Manager makes it easy to connect your store with Google. Here's how:
