The four sections we will cover here are:

  • My Sites.
  • Dashboards.
  • Configure My Site.
  • Reports Data.

Once you have verified site ownership with BWT, you will be able to start making use of all of the free tools and data in each section. Let’s dig in!

Section: My Sites

My Sites allows you to view the sites you have access to and add additional sites to be managed.

It provides you with a quick thumbnail of your website, the number of messages in your Message Center inbox and the percentage change for clicks from search, search impressions, pages crawled and pages indexed. From MySites, you can quickly navigate to the dashboard for a site by clicking on it in the table.

Section: Dashboards

The Site Dashboard is an easy-to-read snapshot of:

  • Your site’s overall activity.
  • The list of sitemaps that have been submitted, indexed and crawled.
  • Your site’s top organic search queries.
  • Your site’s inbound links.

To get a more comprehensive and detailed report, you can either click on the link below the snapshot or use the corresponding navigation in the menu on the left-hand side of the toolset.
