If you just published your online website and you need to take the first step to make sure visitors can reach your website you can review my checklist below that I use for any new website I create.

Basic things for every website
Generate a sitemap XML file

A sitemap is a web page on your site that will help search engines find, crawl, and index all of your website’s content. Sitemaps are also explaining to search engines which pages on your site are most important. You might find ready made plugins or modules for your website that can help you to setup your sitemap XML file easily. Also, you can read more about Sitemap XML from here.

Add your site to Google Search Console

If you don't know it, Google Search Console is the most important tool that can help you track your website links on Google index. From there you can submit your Sitemap XML URL.

Add Google Analytics

You need Google Analytics to track and analyze your website visitors.

Online profiles
Create a Twitter account

It's important to establish your online presence on Twitter. First impressions count, and your profile on Twitter will help you keep connected with your visitors after they leave your website.
