Google Search Console verification

Add a web domain property to Google Seach Console

What is Google Seach Console verification?

Verification is the process of proving that you are the owner of the web domain that you claim to own. We need to confirm ownership because once a property is verified, it has access to your Google Search data and may affect its presence in Google Search. Each Google Seach Console property requires at least one verified owner.

Verify a web domain

Add a new property or choose an unverified property from the property selection bar.

Choose one of the verification methods listed below and follow the instructions. Not all verification methods are available for all types of properties; The verification page will list the available and recommended methods for your site.

Several people can add and verify ownership of a website separately using the same or different verification methods. If you use the same verification method just be sure not to overwrite the verification tokens of any other owner.

Using multiple verification methods

You can add additional verification methods on the verification settings page of your property. You may want to add more than one verification method in case one of your existing verification methods fails (for example, if you verified with a Google Analytics tracking code and someone changes a template on your website that omits the tag ).

To add an additional verification method, visit the Property Configuration page and click Property Verification.

How long is the verification?

Google periodically checks if your verification is valid (for example, if your HTML verification tag is still present). If the verification can no longer confirm your permits on that property they will expire after a certain period. If all verified owners lose access to a property, all delegated owners (owners added by a verified owner), users and property associates will lose access to the Google Seach Console property.

When will I start seeing data?

Data is collected for a property from the moment you first add it as a Google Seach Console property. Any verification breach generally does not cause a breach in data collection.

We lost ownership of our website!

If you own our website or are not sure who the verified owner is, verify another site owner. The new owner will be able to see the list of all verified owners and users on that site, as well as the verification methods for each owner. You can optionally verify previous owners by removing their verification token (for example, removing the HTML tag from the site, for verified owners with HTML tags).

Domain ownership

We introduce the domain name that we will add to our property and Google Seach Console will make a query of the URL if it is included in your property. A domain property requires verification of DNS records to prove ownership unless the property is in a Google product such as Blogger or Google Sites.

A domain property URL is a URL without a protocol (http / https). Note that the public suffix (.org, .com, etc.) is part of the property name, so the domain property "" does not include "" or " com". The following URLs are all valid domain property definitions:


www is ignored. If you add www to your property name, www will be ignored. For example, if you specify as the URL of your property, the property will be created as


A domain property aggregates data for all subdomains, protocols, and subpaths of the property. For example, if you define a domain property as "", the data includes, any subdomain of
