I have taken my website live with basic information but it does not show up even when I put the full name of the store. Anyone faced a similar problem?

Hi, @Saurabh92 

Congrats on your launch!

It can take some time until your website shows up on Google. The reason for this is because Google needs to index your site before it shows up in search results. Google will index your site on its own time; however, to help speed this process up you can upload your sitemap to Google. 

To upload your sitemap, follow these steps here

Hope this helps!

Hey Elle!

Thanks so much for replying! 

I understand that Google might take some time to index my website and I have verified my account through Google so that should be soon. In addition, I tried submitting my sitemap but it does not show me the tracking id somehow. Any idea why this happens?

Thanks!

You're welcome, @Saurabh92 !

You shouldn't receive a tracking ID after submitting your sitemap, are you referring to a Google Analytics tracking ID perhaps to set up tracking under Online store > Preferences? If so, you can learn about setting up Google Analytics here. 

Let me know if this helps!
