Google Integration

There are loads of cool things you can do with all of the cool services Google offers. Here are the ways you can make the most of Google on your WordPress.com blog.


Site/Domain Validation

If you’d like to enable Google’s advanced Search Console , you’ll need to verify your domain first. To do that, we provide a simple tool for entering the meta tags they will provide you with.

XML Sitemaps

When Google (and other search engines) come looking for your fresh content, they will check for a file called a sitemap to tell them where everything is. We generate this file automatically for you, and take care of updating it every time you publish something new. You can read a little more about sitemaps.

Email via G Suite

If you’ve got a custom domain pointing to your WordPress.com blog, you may choose to set up email so that you can receive mail at you@yourgroovydomain.com. We have instructions on how you can do that with G Suite.

Google Maps

Want to show people where something is, or how to get somewhere? Grab a Google Map and embed it right into your Post or Page using these instructions.
