Google Search Console and user management
The Google Search Console which is a part of Google Webmaster Tools has many great uses for improving the search engine rankings of your website. If you already have a registered Search Console for your website, you can easily add Kook as a registered user for our ongoing Webmastering and SEO services.
Google’s Search Console also has a feature that allows users to share ownership and let other users have access to the search console and its review the materials. The steps to add a new user to search console are simple:
Firstly, log into your Search Console account in which you have your website ownership verified by Google (your Verified Owner account).
Make sure the correct property is selected (if only one is in the account it should by default load up when you log in).
Then click on "Settings" down in the left hand side panel:
Next click on "Users and permissions":
Then, in the top right hand corner, click on "Add User":
This will prompt a pop up window to appear asking you to add a new user email address to the account.
Type the email address of the new owner into the desired field. To add Kook, please use firstname.lastname@example.org with "Full" permission granted.
After adding the new user they will be shown under the "Users" section as having "Owner" permission. They will be able to log into webmaster tools and search console with their Google account details from now on. For limited access, you can grant “Restricted” permission.
Once this is done, you now have access to this site from another account. This allows Kook access to crawl reports, search data and traffic analysis which all play a big part in SEO and website optimization.
