Using google webmaster tools for your blog/website

For those of you who have made new wordpress blogs/websites and want to make sure that Google’s search engine sees your blogs/site follow these steps:

1>Make a google account if you don’t have one.
2>Go to login webmaster tools
3>Add your blog/site .To verify add a page in your blog with the google verification code as page title.It is not necessary to write anything on that.You can see that on my blog.
3>Once verified you need to submit a sitemap.This is important for google to be able to crawl all pages.For this in the google webmaster tools dashboard click sitemap and just add /sitemap.xml after your url and click submit sitemap.
4>so by now your blog is registered on google webmaster tools and you have submitted your sitemap.
5>Depending on the number of hits your site gets statistics will start showing up for your blog!

P.S-if you have a website you can follow these steps but you need to make a sitemap of your web site here and make sure to save it such that it comes up as feature wordpress offers by default on your blog.
