Register Domain Variants in Google Search Console

We Register your (usually 4) domain variants to ensure capture of all data in Google Search Console. We also do a quick check for Mobile-First Indexing and whether you have any HTTP/HTTPS issues, possibly due to a poor HTTPS migration.

Configure your Preferred Domain

It's a good idea to let Google know whether you want the www. Included in your domain. We check BigCommerce to see your preference and configure Google Search Console likewise.

Configure International Targeting if appropriate

Most businesses derive the bulk of their income from a single country. In these cases, when you have a generic top-level domain, it's a good idea to set this country in Google Search Console's International Targeting Country setting to assist Google

Submit & check for issues with your XML Sitemap

You should have a sitemap (usually the default BigCommerce sitemap) defined in your preferred variant's Google Search Console. We check it's there and whether there are any reported issues. We also cast our eyes over the Google Search Console Coverage Report, looking for any obvious big ticket issues.

Configure BigCommerce-Specific URL Parameters to allow for more efficient crawling of your site by Google

We configure common URL Parameters settings in the Google Search Console to inform Google of what to crawl & what can be ignored. This results in a more efficient use of your crawl budget, increasing the chances of your important pages being up-to-date in the Google Index.

Confirm & Advise on your BigCommerce URL Structure

With some URL structures, there's a big danger of a partial or complete loss of established ranking for a pages if changes are made to category URL's or product re-categorisation. We inspect your configuration and advise of any issues we see.

Configure Brand & Category Pages to assist Pagination Indexing

Some BigCommerce configurations cause each page of a category & brand product to have identical titles & meta descriptions. We install some JavaScript code that adds page number and sort order to the title and meta description to avoid this. The code also fixes a bug in BigCommerce that adds "null" as a title or meta description.

Robots.txt Optimised with BigCommerce-Specific Configuration

We inspect your Robots.txt file, looking for common BigCommerce issues that can result in the de-indexing of important pages on your BigCommerce site. If any issues are found, we fix them and resubmit your file in the Google Search Console.
