Each browser has their own webmaster tool like Google Search Console, Bing Webmaster tool, Yandex Webmaster tool, etc. You have to submit your website with these webmasters.
If your are using WordPress then your task become very easy. Just use your Yoast SEO or any other plugin.

As per the new EAT algorithm update, Google focuses on creators’ expertise, authority, and trust factors for his/her blog niche. When Google will become satisfied with all EAT factors it will start promoting your content automatically.
So, in this post we will see how we can prove our subject expertise, build authority and win trust of our viewers.
Prove Your Niche Expertise To Google
1. Focus on Deep Digging
New bloggers have multiple blog ideas. And they start publishing articles on multiple categories. This is their biggest blogging mistake as a beginner. Writing blog posts on multiple topics confused Google about your expertise.
So, if you want that Google will reach to your content sooner then start writing in-depth content on a single niche. Write on each possible doubt occurring in that niche.
Writing in-depth knowledge articles on a single category is called deep digging. Deep Digging proves your expertise about the topic you select for blogging.
So, instead of covering multiple topics in your blog focus on a single topic and cover almost all possible do & don’t. Don’t forget the content is king.
Some beginners try to make long length content unnecessarily. Please don’t do that. Just provide to the point information to your visitors. And prove your points by using headings, bullet points, images, and resource links.
2. Forum Discussion
Online forums are some common interest community groups. In these forums, people from different regions take participate. It like a review market for any product and service.
Suppose you are looking for problems arising in a new phone. Search in the forum what people are discussing and what is the most repeating problem of the user.
Provide a solution for this problem and share your article link in that group. Now people will visit your article. If their query will be satisfied then they will return to your blog again.
Next time they will go to your blog directly. Also, you will get a backlink that will boost your domain authority.
3. Make Profile on Multiple Sites
The profile is something like your online biodata. Suppose you are a doctor then you have to provide your doctorate everywhere for starting your service.
In the same way, you have to make a profile on multiple websites saying your little or detailed biography. If multiple sites will reflect your same identity. It will increase your chance of getting traffic from organic search.
Build Your Authority
Authority is one of the main and most important ranking factors. Google prefers to rank high authority websites first compared to low authority websites. As a new blog has low domain authority, getting organic traffic is a little difficult. But nothing is impossible.
I am sharing some basic methods to improve your domain authority.
1. Share Articles on Social Media Platforms
As per a similar web report, only Facebook has 50B active users. And there are more than 25 most popular social media sites that have billions of active users. Social media sites use could increase our blog’s organic reach because of its active users and high authority.
So, if you want to get Google’s attention about your new blog just share your blog on different social media sites. I also did the same to get quick popularity of my blog on the internet.
But keep in mind that all social media sites have their own community standards and they can ban you for any bad behavior.
