Start by visiting the Google Search Console site:
This will ask you to add a property to your Search Console and you will be wanting to add your website for your data to be tracked properly. The first offered method would be to upload a file to your site but we will be using a different method so you would want to go under the Alternate methods tab. The specific method we will be using is the HTML tag method so you will want to select that option.
For adding the tag to your site it will need to be added into the header of your site and to do this we will be installing and activating the Insert Headers and Footers plugin found here:
You will add the code into the header section of your site for Google to be able to find it. For that you would copy and paste the code from your search console into the top code block and save it to your site.
Be sure to clear any caching for Google Search Console to be able to verify the code was added to your site properly. It may take a few days for the data to be fully collected but your site should now be added to Google Search Console.
