  1. hi brother
    Do I have to submit my site with www and non-www
    exemple https://www.domain.com and https://domain.com

    1. Good day Hakim.

      In step 4 as I discussed above, if you use domain, you will only need to type domain.com and it will cover all extensions on your domain.

      But if you use URL PREFIX, you will need to submit them one by one.

      NOTE: if you use https://www.domain.com that will be the link you will be using for generating back links.

  2. Wow!

    Nice content

    You such a wonderful blogger bro
    I love your writing skills

    1. Thanks brother. Will check on your site soon. I may even drop guest post..lol
