How to submit your site URL and sitemap to Google Search Console (Blogger and Wordpress)

Ever wondered why your blog doesn't showcase on search engine when someone makes a search using a keyword related to your niche? I receive complaints from people about this issue. Well the simple reason is that you haven't submitted your site and sitemap to the search engine in question (Google). I do ask myself... What's the point of having a unique and a quality post without any audience? Just like cultivalting on a rock and expecting a seed to germinate.

Today in this post, I'll share with your guys how you can submit your site to Google webmaster tool for crawling and indexing of your blog post. Also, how to submit your sitemap to the webmasters tool, how you can monitor your search index reports. But before then,
