How To Add a User to Google Search Console
Google Search Console (GSC) is an essential platform for anyone who wants to analyse data or troubleshoot errors on their website. There’s so much you can do with GSC and it’s more than likely that you’ll want to grant another user access (such as your digital agency) to help make sure your website is performing at its best.
Here’s our easy guide on how to add a user to your Google Search Console account.
2. Select the correct property
In the top right, you’ll see a search property drop down. Find and click the correct property you would like to give access to.
3. Scroll down to ‘settings’
On the left-hand side, you’ll find a column with several options. Scroll down and go to Settings.
4. Click on ‘users and permissions’
Once you’re in settings, you’ll see an option called Users and Permissions – click it!
5. Add a user
Now, in the top right corner, you will see an option to add user. Click on this.
6. Grant them permissions
Finally, enter in the gmail account (yes, it needs to be gmail!) of the user you would like to grant access to. You’ll see you can either give them full or restricted access.
- A ‘Full’ user can view all the data in the account and take actions
- A ‘Restricted’ user can see less data and cannot take actions
In most cases, you’ll want to grant ‘Full’ access, especially when it comes to your digital agency.
Once you’re happy, click Add.
It’s always good to let the user know you have granted them access and that they should check their emails. They’ll just need to accept and then they will be able to start analysing and troubleshooting your website’s data.
