Google launched property sets this week in Google Search Console and one of the complaints is that you must use the DNS verification methods to get it to work. It can be complex but if you ask your “web guy” they should be able to do it easily. But if you have your domain registered at Google Domains, it seems to be automated.
Andrew Hagemann posted on Twitter that he was “able to verify my domain properties without a TXT just by using Google Domains.” He shared that it says that since it is an “affiliated product” the verification method is automatic.
Here is the screen shot:
TIL if you use Google Domains, domain verification in Search Console might be a breeze!(unfortunately, it’s not launched in Switzerland, so I’ll take Andrew’s word for it) https://t.co/ZQjPkhkGyF

Pretty cool – but how many of you actually use Google Domains (still in beta) for your domain name registration?
