How to Share Access to Google Search Console

Whether you’ve just added another member to your team or will be outsourcing marketing tasks to a new digital agency, there are plenty of reasons why it might be time to share Google Search Console permissions with someone else.

This guide will show you how.

How to Add a User to Google Search Console

Step 1: Go to Google Search Console at search.google.com/search-console and log in to your Google account.

Step 2: On the top left of the screen you’ll see a dropdown of properties (read: your websites). Select the one you would like to share access to.

Please note that Search Console is sensitive to matching the domain exactly. This is particularly true when connecting it with Google Analytics.

Note: Google Analytics & Google Search console require you to be exact in terms of your website’s URL. Be sure to match exactly how your site is supposed to look. The main thing to note is whether your site uses ‘http://‘ or ‘https://‘ and if it includes the www. before the domain name or not.

Improperly setting this up is often the cause for most problems webmasters encounter.

Step 3: Next, click settings on the bottom left of the screen.

Step 4: Under settings select users and permissions.

Step 5: Once you’ve visited the settings page. Click on ‘Users and permissions’

Step 6: Next, on the top right of the screen is a big blue button that reads ‘Add User’. Click it.

Step 7: Finally, Enter the email address of the user you would like to share access with. If you are trying to give access to an agency, speak with your account representative to get the appropriate address.

Boom! You’re done!
