Hi Matthew. The fact that you are getting clicks from Google is a good thing. If you do nothing, chances are your Google clicks will grow organically by themselves. Try to install Google Analytics and tag manager instead:

I've only gotten 8 clicks from google.com. Would this still benefit me Paul? Would I get more traffic from google?

Having a nightmare with this. I followed the instructions to get the tag for settings, and tried copy/paste and just kept getting verification failed. Then I realised the tag wasn't complete so copied it into a txt file and tried to past, but the tag ID field won't accept the full tag. Eventually I relasied to only put the tag content between quotes in, but then when trying to verify, I get the error, "Your meta tag is not in the <head> section of your home page." Not sure what else I can do here.

Paul, thanks for the starting point. My substack settings were different from yours, but I saw some comments and verified it with the Tag options. Basically, a tag gets generated on Google Tag site (should look something like "GTM-XXXXXXX"), and it is then obviously entered into the "Google Tag Manager ID" field on Substack.

I've added the Google Tag Manager ID to Substack settings, just wondering whether I actually need to create a tag (I don't think so but if so, which tag type would I be using?

Thanks for this, I'm excited to try it however from what I can see, Google Site Verification is no longer under analytics in settings - has it moved or do I need to be doing something else to verify my subdomain? Thanks again

Hey Paul, πŸ‘‹ have you enabled AI crawling or turned it off? I recently shared how to turn it off. However a SEO friend of mind was wondering if that was really a good idea in terms of getting found via search. Any idea on that? Would love to hear opinion on that! Thanks Kristina

This is a great post resource to keep in my back pocket. I've just started doing virtual assistant work for Substack users and I'm going to be handing out this link at will! Thanks!
