You can use Google Search Console to measure and troubleshoot your site's search traffic and performance, and to make your site stand out in Google search results.
A Google account is required to proceed with this article. If you do not have a Google Account yet, please create a new one using the link below and clicking Create Account.
Step 1: Register Google Webmaster Tools
Go to Google Webmaster Tools (Search Console).
Click the Get Started button. (Login with Google account is required.)
There are two ways to start Google Search Console. One way is by using the URL prefix and the other is by using the domain. To use the URL prefix, http and https must be registered separately, so if you want to register at the same time, it is recommended to register as a domain. Enter your domain and click the Continue button.
(Note: If you have registered the website at least once through your account, this process can be skipped. To add a new site, click Attribute Search in the upper left corner and click Add Attribute.)
You then need to copy the HTML code that Google gives you. When the meta tag appears, click the Copy button to copy it.
Make sure to leave this page open.. Now from within the Weebly Editor go to Settings > SEO and paste the line of code you copied from Google into the Header box. Be sure to Save and Publish your Weebly website.
When you’ve done this, hit the Verify button on Google Webmaster Tools interface. Give it a few minutes then your website will be verified with Google.
In my case, when I click the "verify" button, I found the following message:
In the message window, someone told me to wait for a while, but something didn't feel right. Like everyone else, I wanted to quickly see the green window that ownership was recognized. So I decided to try another way. This time, I went into the URL below.
Then, in the Verify Ownership window below, you will see a phrase to copy the HTML code, click the Copy button.
In that state, go to the Weebly editing site and click the page on the upper bar.
First, if you press the home button on the left, you will see a menu like the screen on the right below.
Now, simply paste the copied code into the header code section below.
Don't forget to hit the publish button!
Then, when you return to the Ownership Verify window in Google search Console(Google webmaster tool) and press the Verify button, the following message window will finally appear.
And you can see that the site has been added to the Google Search Console site as shown in red below.
If you've come this far, but it's been difficult, the next thing to do is to add a sitemap of the Google Search Console site.
A sitemap is a file that contains a list of all your website’s pages URL’s. It provides the different search engines such as Google with relevant information about your website’s URL’s and structure.
o submit your Weebly sitemap:
If you see the window above and below, you have succeeded. Congratulations!!!
I wish you all the best of luck, registering in the Google search engine and managing well.
I started making a website because many people around me asked about my background and work, but now I have a blog, and more and more people are looking for it. So, to express my gratitude to the people who visit my website, I will take this opportunity to change the monotonous front of the homepage.
The previous front page in website looked like below:
But I wanted to make it possible for people who click on my homepage here for the first time to see my blog posts at a glance. Recently, many applications have been developed to display updated blog content. Rather than a complicated technical explanation, I would like to show my case by introducing it briefly.
First, go to the FeedWind setup screen site like below : (Click on the screen below to go to the site)
This site is the simplest way to create dynamic content such as news feeds and blog feeds on your homepage.
It is free to use (during 14 days) and requires membership registration. Facebook or Google users just need to log into their account.
After 14 days, you pay for the service continuously:
Here is the service plan (click)
The following window will appear on the first screen.
A window for selecting the type of content source to be displayed, click RSS Feed here.
Then you will see the screen below.
Just put the blog feed address in the Feed URL window you see.
For instance, I put my address like this : https://www.annakoh.com/blog/feed/
For example: https://example.weebly.com/blog/feed/
Note: Weebly RSS feeds are not available from regular Weebly (non-blog) pages without using a 3rd party service. However, multiple blogs can exist on a single Weebly site each with their own feeds, so there is a workaround.
And select the options such as the size of the blog feed to be displayed in the menu below, the text format, the scroll speed, the image to be displayed, etc. according to the situation. Each time you select an option, you can see the different results in the right corner.
If there is a problem, the following message will appear.
In this case, you should double check your blog feed' URL.
TIP: Right-click on the RSS icon shown like below on the right, and use menu item: “Copy link address” from the menu.
If all goes well, it's time to insert it into the page where I want.
Once you have entered the feed URL, click the red rectangle menu (Save & Get code) on the screen below.
And then you can see the below window.
You can click the Copy Code button on the left. It means that you can copy the html code.
And then you should return to the menu bar in Weebly.
Click the Embed Code on the left sidebar like below.
In my case, I inserted the module at the bottom of the very first screen of the homepage.
Show a little patience, we're almost there. If you have passed this far safely, you will see the screen below.
Paste the copied code into the new code window and you're done. Results will be visible 5-10 seconds after seeing the loading message.
This makes the page much more readable and dynamic than before. I hope your website is like that too.
You may have been surprised to see the "not secure" message on the HTTP window after creating your first homepage. It's a phrase that you can sometimes see on other websites. In general, the homepage is filled with a lock image in the address bar as in the red square below, and the following address is visible.
However, when it is not secure, the following address bar is displayed.
If you don't fix the problem, you will continue to see the screen below and be anxious. So here is the simplest solution if you see a warning in Weebly.
Your site has to do SSL enabled. First, go to the Weebly Editor site and click on Settings. (click to the below red rectangle menu)
Then you see the general screen. For example, if you look at the red arrow as shown in the picture below, you can see the title SSL.
If your screen looks like the below, click the right button.
If you go up to this point, the screen changes as follows.
Finally, press the top menu, Publish.
Open the homepage again To make sure it's been fixed properly and check whether the not secure message disappears or the lock image is visible.
If it isn't the problem with Weebly, and if it has other technical issues, there is a good Blog by Tomoson detailed below. It's beneficial.
There are currently numerous free website builder sites on the Internet.
However, when I first started to create my homepage, my son, Minsi, introduced Weebly free website builder. I worked in a different profession in Korea, debuted as a painter in Germany, and moved to New York again, so many people are curious about the process. Whenever they asked, I often answered, but at some point, and I thought that I should build a homepage and write it down there. So, for a moment, I would like to write down what I felt while using Weebly, a free website builder.
Among other things, I was concerned about the portfolio and blog for showing my artworks. Weebly has an artistic design, and the user simply inserts the module into the homepage and creates a function. As a painter who converts images into data, Weebly is the best homepage maker for an artist in that you can control functions with images rather than text or coding. Below is an example of a plug-in screen inserted as an image.
What I like most of all is that the AdSense plugin module allows you to easily attach ads to any page where you want.
Below is about the plug-in modules in left side bar. There are useful functions you can create.
Currently, I use Weebly for free and only pay $19.99 a year for domain usage. If you pay an extra fee, the modules with more advanced features will increase, but in my case, I am satisfied with the free service. If you dare to find the shortcomings, the first time you drag-in and drop for insert it into a page, it can be annoying because you aren't good at it. However, you get used to this as you practice step by step. If there is a weakness, the font of the blog does not change more freely than expected, and if you want to change the content of the blog, it takes time, such as having to load the page again.
Before anything else, If you want to upgrade your site to sell things for business use, you can refer to the information below.
Additionally, when you create a page and publish it, you can automatically share it with other sns you set up.
And the most important service is that when I ask for solving a problem by email, the answer comes well. However, using the chat window is not helpful because AI works too much.
Below is a tutorial YouTube that will help you if you set your first homepage to Weebly.
