Google Search Console is a free service offered by Google that helps you monitor and maintain your site's presence in Google Search results. You don't have to sign up for Search Console for your site to be included in Google's search results, but doing so can help you understand how Google views your site and optimize its performance in search results.

Step 1. Set up Google Search Console

Setting up Google Search Console will take you about five minutes. We believe it's well worth your time, and can be a valuable tool for managing your site. Click or tap on the "Start now" button and login with your Google account.

Pro Tip: If you've already added your Google Analytics account to your Exhibit site, hooking up Search Console will be a breeze.

Step 2. On your Exhibit site, go to Settings

Step 3. Scroll to the Sitemap section and copy the Sitemap URL

Step 4. On Google Search Console, click or tap on Sitemaps from the menu

Step 5. Paste the Sitemap URL in the "Add a new sitemap field" and click or tap on Submit

That's it! Exhibit automatically updates your XML sitemap when you make changes to your site (e.g. adding or removing collections) and passes that information on to the Google search engine.
