How to Verify Website on Google Search Console in 2019 (Domain property with DNS)


Refund policy – Prior to making long-term payment…shared, VPS, Dedicated… They DO NOT offer refund even partial. So prior to doing business with #hostgator, make sure you want to work with them for 1 yr, 2, 3 yrs. My suggestion is very poor. Ryan, barkbandanas.com


I’ll show you how to verify your WordPress website in Google Search Console in 2019 and we will do it for all domain properties in one go.

To verify that you actually own the domain and all variations of it, Google requires DNS verification. It sounds complicated and techy but it only takes a bit more time to set up than the other verification methods, but it’s worth it because then you’ll have all your domain variations like http and https under one domain property instead of having multiple domains as you see on your screen now.

What will you need to DNS verify Google Search Console:
1. Google Account
2. Access to domain DNS, so basically access to manage the domain’s DNS records.
3. Access to hosting dashboard such as cPanel

If all of this sounds too scary and too much work, you can also verify your domain with meta tags, right from your WordPress dashboard. A tutorial of how to do that will appear on your screen now. But I really recommend you do it with the DNS as I will show you in this video, it’s less hassle in the long run.

    I made a MISTAKE in the video. For GoDaddy, you need to put "@" as Host Name. Sorry for this.
    Thanks to @DanTravels for pointing this out.

    If using a CDN like Cloudflare – you'll want to create a record in the DNS panel also. BTW – nice vid. Your other videos are helpful also.

    Hey, if I have a website that has locations as inner pages, how do you add them separately to search console?

    Worked great for my Host Gator Account, but since the GoDaddy Domain is transferred to Host Gator it does not show DNS Management Records to add the verification. Any Help?
