In the pop-up, enter your website URL (e.g., https://www.yourwebsite.com/) and click "Continue."

5) Verify Ownership:

Google Search Console requires verification to ensure that you are the owner or have permission to access the website. There are several verification methods available:

HTML file upload: Download the HTML file provided by Google, upload it to your website's root directory, and then click "Verify" in Search Console. ❗ THIS WON'T WORK FOR CAREERS ❗

HTML tag: Add a meta tag with a unique code to the <head> section of your homepage's HTML. Click "Verify" in Search Console.

6) Wait for Verification:

After adding the property and completing the verification process, it may take some time for Google to verify your ownership and start collecting data.

7) Access Search Console Dashboard:

Once verified, you can access the Search Console dashboard for your property. Here, you'll find various reports and tools to analyze and improve your site's performance in Google Search.

Please keep in mind that in point 5, you would need to add a meta-tag to the <head> section in the Custom Code editor, since the option with uploading the HTML file won’t work.
