How to Add Users to Google Search Console

There may be similarly named properties so make sure to choose the one that represents the live website.

If your website uses a secure layer (and it definitely should in 2021), you will be using one of the last two. Choose the domain that matches your website domain.

A quick way to see which format of URL and protocol is used on the site is to double-click in the address bar. You can then see the full details of the indexed website URL. Like so:

Check Protocol And Domain In Chrome Address Bar

Choose settings (you may need to scroll down)

Choose The Search Console Property Settings 1

Select Users and Permissions

Select Users And Permissions 1

Click the Add User button

Click Add User 1

Add the email address of the account and select the permissions level (Full or Restricted).

Add User Email Address

To manage property owners you can click on the three dots beside the current owner, and click “manage property owners”. If you are only looking to add a new user for viewing data and general management tasks, changing property owners is not required or recommended.
