Attaching Search Console to your online store

When you sign up to Google Search Console, they'll ask you to verify that you're the site owner. You can do it with several methods. For example, you can upload an HTML file to your online store:

  1. First, download the HTML file to your device by following the instructions on Google Search Console.

  2. Next, upload the file to your online store in the section Online store > Pages > Static pages.

Sitemap

You can submit your online store's sitemap to Google Search Console. It will help Google to better understand the pages on your website. 

Finqu online store automatically creates a sitemap and you can find it easily by adding sitemap.xml after your online store's address. For example https://www.yourfinqustore.com/sitemap.xml

Search Console probably has the domain part already filled there, so you only need to add the sitemap.xml into the sitemap-field in the Google Search Console admin panel.
