How to get the best search results with Google Custom Search

In order to get the best search results, please be sure to follow these steps:

  1. Make sure your site is accessible by Google by using a robots.txt file
  2. Verify site ownership via the Google Search Console
  3. Submit a valid XML sitemap

Once all of these steps have been complete, it can then take up to 12 days (sometimes longer) before Google will have fully indexed all of the content on your site.
