2 weeks ago I submitted my website to google search console but its saying that none of my pages have been indexed.
In fact, it says there is no data available for any of the links including: search appearance, search traffic, and crawl.
So far I have added my website to my property and submitted a site map.
Would appreciate any insights on how to use this, and simple steps I can use to get my pages indexed by google.
Thanks a lot,
