How to Verify Domain Property in Google Search Console via DNS

Not too long ago, you had to add each version of the site separately as a property in Google Search Console. (“URL Prefix” option in the image below)

For kubix.digital this would mean that we wouldn’t be able to evaluate the data optimally unless we added 12 URLs to the Google Search Console separately. This, because Google used to consider all of these URLs as different properties:

https://kubix.digital/ ; http://kubix.digital/ ; https://kubix.digital/tr ; http://kubix.digital/tr ; https://kubix.digital/de ; http://kubix.digital/de ; https://www.kubix.digital/ ; http://www.kubix.digital/ ; https://www.kubix.digital/tr ; http://www.kubix.digital/tr ; https://www.kubix.digital/de ; http://www.kubix.digital/de

However, this changed with the new update. You can now see the data of all versions of the site, with a single URL property.

The DNS method allows you to create this connection. To set it up, you can follow these steps:

Note: I'm explaining the DNS integration method through the GoDaddy panel. The panel might be different with other providers.

  • Add “@” to the “Host” box.
  • Copy the verification code that is given in the 2nd step, and paste it into the “TXT Value” box.
  • If you don’t have any customized settings, you can leave the default 1-hour option in the “TTL” box. With this time period, you determine how long the information is stored.
  • After making all adjustments, click the “Save” button and complete the process.
  • To complete the 3rd step, click the “Verify” button on the panel.
