Your Guide to Google Search Console

get to know this powerful tool

Everything you need to know about GSC (and nothing you don’t).

Google Search Console is an incredibly valuable free search monitoring tool from Google, but my clients frequently say they’re confused trying to set it up or understand the data it gives them. It’s different from Google Analytics, huh? Yep!

This mini-course walks you through everything the average website owner needs to know about Google Search Console. It shows you how to set GSC up on a WordPress or Squarespace website, how to understand the data it gives, and what to do about error messages. I’ve kept this course super short to give you only what you need to know and nothing you don’t.

This mini-course costs just $49 and takes about 4 hours to complete.
