I created an Adobe Portfolio site with multiple pages. I also created Google ads, analytics and Google search console. I want my website to be on Google. How do I insert a sitemap into my Adobe Porfolio website?

There is no forum for that product here

And Lighrtroom Integrations
So how do I get my website on Google?
The same way everyone gets on Google.
Could I pick your brain re the SEO on my folio site. I've done the following:
Some background on my site, it's been done in adobe portfolio, google verified on console yesterday. If you have any other tips to improve my ranking on google would be much appreciated. It's not even listed at the top when you search my name!
Lastly, in the google summary the blurb just seems to list the sections in my site rather than the summary i submitted about myself (Freelance graphic designer. London etc etc )
thanks in advance
I think aiming for the top is a bit ambitious if you are just starting out. Aiming for being in the top 100 might be more realistic, but maybe the top million; realise just how many people are out there doing this, unless you are trying to sell something unique to your exact neighbourood. You are competing with many people all playing the same game, many of them doing this full time for years. I suggest you study everything you can find, and believe nobody who promised to tell you the trick. Google keep changing the rules precisely to stop gamers winning. If someone wants to charge you for the knowledge be doubly suspicious; if they had the magic solution, they would be using it to make money, not teaching it.
Well I reaslise the top spot is probably out of my reach. Just looking for helpful tips along the journey
I replied to your private message.
At the risk of repeating myself...
Google Console has changed. And Google does what Google does.
Be patient. It takes weeks or months for Google, Bing and other SEs to fully index and rank new sites. SEs tend to give higher page rankings to well-established sites that have a) unique & relevant content and b) good backlinks from other reputable sites. Look at what your competition is doing.
As a web developer, I tell my clients to advertise on Google & Bing for at least 6 months while their new site develops traction. But most businesses continue buying click-through ads forever because it helps generate new traffic.
