How to Add Someone to your Google Search Console Account

I’ve had to explain this a few times recently, so probably there isn’t a good, clear explanation out there on Google, for this little corner of Google 🙂

So here is my explanation of how to add a user – to delegate some access – to your Google Search Console account for a specific domain or website.

Google Search Console, for those who didn’t look for 5 minutes, used to be called Webmaster Tools. It’s the panel which records and allows you to interact with your website’s performance in organic Google search results. If you’re online, and you want to rank in search, you should be at least a little familiar with it.

How to Delegate Access to Search Console

  1. Login to search console
  2. Select the relevant domain (this will need doing for each if you have www / non www and http / https)
  3. In left menu, scroll down to the settings “Gear” icon – click this
  4. Click “Users and permissions”
  5. Top right, blue box “add user” click this
  6. Enter a Google email address, with “full” (or whatever access you need) permission and click “add”
