    How you doing guys?
    I am building a new website, doing nothing BH on it and my site/new posts are being indexed on Google. Should I bother verifying it, would it make any difference? I know Google says it would help, but they would wouldn't they.

    Cheers.

    James :)

    It would help if you have any usage of the GSC. Also, verified websites bring a little "trust" for GG. So it's always good to take, especially if you're not GG paranoid ;)

    Google want to promote trustworthy content. If someone was producing trustworthy content they will likely do all the normal stuff of Google analytics, search console etc. I would say it almost looks dodgy if you don't.

    I don't see why not proceeding with a relation with google, if it's organic traffic that you are looking for. Anything that you do that shows that your site is legit and not a spam site will score brownie points with the search engine. GSC is just a small baby step, and it helps uncover some interesting facts and stats about your website, so I guess you can just go ahead and add, even if you don't check those often.

    Yes, it's crucial for you to verify the domain of your site. If you want more traffic for your website, if you want to gain more audience, or if you want to rank your website higher, you should use a unique domain since it's one of the factors when it comes to search engine optimization.

    Google is a great traffic source. You can easily promote your website througn Google. So I think it's worth to build your website and use services provided by Google, icnluding Google Search Console and creating sitemap. With Search Console your website will be indexed faster + you can check analytics about search traffic and behaviour.
