Google removes the Submit URL form feature on July 25, 2018. It is replaced by the Google Search Console feature to register new websites or articles to be indexed and appear on Google Search .
In the past, register the website only by entering the URL / website address and clicking Submit. Now, the stages are pretty much challenging. Here’s how to register your website on Google Search:
1. Open the Google website and type in the Google search console. The URL is here: https://search.google.com/search-console or https://www.google.com/webmasters or https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/home (Google Ah is always changeable, but this is technology hehehe). Once clicked, it looks like this and click Start Now.
2. Enter using your Gmail / Google account. Then enter your website name. Complete using http or https. Click the Add Property button.
3. Verify ownership (verify ownership of the website). You can verify by downloading files from Google and upload using Cpanel/cwp panel or use an easier verification method using HTML tags (continue reading number 4):
