How to be good webmaster and manager (My Guide)?
As I am webmaster, I am able to manage 5 website and blogs in all at one time. I do it will help of on Google and One Microsoft (live.com) account.
Here are few stuffs which I use to manage my complete bunch of websites and Blog.
#1. Google Webmaster Tool
This is the most important online webmaster tool which you can use to submit your content online by method called indexing. I this you can submit your XML sitemap to index by Google-bot so that your content my appear in Google SERP.
Webmaster tool also give you full control to remove old or deleted pages from SERP. You can check your website stat and which page is performing better, content improvement suggestions from Google and all other. Check for broken URLs, manage your robot.txt file and etc.
#2. Bing Webmaster Tool
Same as Google Webmaster tools, Microsoft’s Bing is also having webmaster tools. It also have to submit XML sitemap to get our pages indexed and appear in Bing Search.
One benefit of Bing is that it will automatically submit sitemap to Yahoo SERP also. So that there in no need to again submit to Yahoo.
Most of the webmaster don’t use this because they concentrate more on Google Webmaster’s but I would like to share that even Facebook uses Bing search to show its web result. So it is better to go with Bing also along with Google.
#3 Google Analytics
Google Analytics gives performance of website or blog. It calculate daily new page views, new visitors, new search engine request where webmaster can keep a tract about from where website is getting more traffic.
You can check from which device, network, country, city, language etc you are getting page views.
You can add your goal in Google Analytics which you can attend by more quality posting. It also keep analysis result of your Adsense earning.
#4 Google Account
Google Account is standalone account which you can use to login all Google products online. Like Gmail, Blogger, YouTube, Google+, Sites, Adsense, Webmaster, Analytics and ample of other Google products.
I personally maintain one separate Google Account apart from personal mail account which is fully dedicated to webmaster and to manage my all sites.
#5 Microsoft Account (Live.com)
Microsoft’s Live.com, Outlook.com or Hotmail.com is another account which I use to login to Bing Webmaster tools and also maintain my domain mails.
There are very few additional products with Microsoft’s account as compare to Google’s account.
