Create an account on GSC


If you have a Gmail account, all you have to do is log in to access your mailbox! Once registered, on the home page of Google Search Console you have the possibility to add a site.

Register your forum on GSC


Once connected to the GSC site, simply follow the procedure below:

In order to continue, Google requires you to validate that you are the owner of the site you have entered. To do this, we advise you to choose the " HTML tag " option . This tag must be inserted in the Administration Panel of your forum

To add the tag to your forum 
go to Admin Panel ...General ... Forum Promotion - Search Engines

  1. Click the icon Optimize your forum referencing with Google sitemaps 1928220652to add an additional meta tag;

  2. Select "Create a "meta" type tag then click on the "select" button;

For example :

Code:
<meta name="google-site-verification" content="cMRwfbwZ1aTPP98S3NcogqIsP8Hq5XObcyjl6qm_HMR" />

You must split the code as the example below 

The name attribute : google-site-verification
The content attribute : cMRwfbwZ1aTPP98S3NcogqIsP8Hq5XObcyjl6qm_HMR

Note : If you have an html page as an intro to your forum, you must deactivate it, until you do the verification. Also remember to leave forums with reading permissions open for guests a few days for Google to index you.
