Dear shardanaltd,


Apart from url and domain name(if it is not keyword) , you need to do seo to see your website in google.

Hi, @shardanaltd


I’m Helen from Shopify Support. Welcome to the Community.


As MS-WEB-DESIGNER mentioned, you need to work on your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in order for your website to appear in Google when customers search for it, or the keywords associated with your business. Once you’ve started working on your SEO,  it can take up to a few weeks or months to properly establish your search results ranking, therefore, it’s best to get started on it sooner rather than later.


The very first thing you need to do in order for Google to even know that your website exists, is to submit the sitemap for the URL that you have set as the primary domain in the Domains section of your Admin. For the steps on how to find, verify and submit your sitemap, please refer to the Help Doc for Finding and submitting your sitemap


Next, you can begin adding keywords to your store. Keywords appear in search results that people enter in search engines, therefore those words need to be on your store in order for Google to find and suggest your site to the searcher. There are four main places that you can add keywords to improve the SEO for your online store:


  • page titles
  • meta descriptions
  • ALT tags
  • a page’s body content


Keywords within each of these areas can be composed and edited from directly within your Shopify admin. Please see the Help Doc on Adding keywords for SEO to your Shopify store for where to find them and some tips on how to optimize. Additionally, Optimizing your site structure also has some great info to help with this.


Lastly, there are also a number of apps in the Shopify App Store that can help you optimize the SEO for your online store as well.  Check these out here.


This should be a good start to putting you on the right path to optimizing your site. I understand it can be confusing and overwhelming at first, so if you would like assistance or professional help with it, I recommend reaching out to an Expert from the Shopify Experts Marketplace.


Good luck!

Because google doesn't index your site yet. How to solve it? easy. 2 ways:

1. submit the sitemap to Google search console as Shopify staff mentioned

2. build more backlinks, e.g from youtube page, from facebook page, or other websites. It can help google to find you easier
