Adding Users to Google Search Console

Today, we’re looking at how you share your Search Console data with others. There are a number of reasons you might want to do this, whether you’re a co-owner of a blog, or pairing up with a Digital Marketing agency.

First, log in to your Search Console account. On any page in your Search Console, you’ll notice a small cog in the top right-hand corner. As the owner of the account, you’ll have a variety of options available to you in the drop-down. Click on ‘Users and Property Owners’.

Search Console User and Property PermissionsNow you’ll see a pop-up called ‘Add A New User’ – in the user field, enter the email of the person you’d like to grant access to your data. Remember, they’ll need a Gmail account to be able to gain access. Next, select the level of access you’d like that user to have. There are two options, ‘Restricted’ and ‘Full’.
