TODAY, i would be teaching about how to confirm your website with google search console through the HTML file upload method.
However, i would explain what a google HTML file upload means.
From my last lesson on how to confirm your website on google search console and how to submit a website sitemap in google, i typically explained about how you can confirm a
website using the google meta tag.
Why am teaching about this step by using the HTML file upload during verification on google search console is that, sometimes it happens that your site may experience issues on
confirmation from google using meta tag. However, google made there things in a way everyone would work with it, what i mean is that the made things in a way it must have
several options for you to choose. however, this tutorial which am writing below would help you confirm your website once it happens that your meta tag is not used.
Below i would illustrate about using file manager to verify a HTML file upload.
the webmaster tools which is owned by google is provided to site owners to enable them to verify there website with google for a proper crawling, example, when you create a new
website, definitely it must appear in google after the hosting propagation. however, you would need to confirm your website with google for them to analyse your website 100%
through the process of submitting your website sitemap like i thought earlier on my lessons.
