Google has officially launched Domain Property in Google Search Console the day after they announced the closure of the Property Sets feature. Overall, the concept behind Domain Property is similar to Property Set, it lets you combine multiple properties in Search Console into one, to see an aggregate view of the data.
We first spotted Google testing this last November and then it went missing in January – so we were unsure if Google gave up on the idea or not. Well, I guess they didn’t give up on it.
Google explains domain properties are “a way of verifying and seeing the data from Google Search for a whole domain.” So the http, https, www, mobile domain, etc can all be combined into one property for aggregate viewing.
Google supports the following URLs to combine here:
includes these URLs.
To set it u, Google said if you already have DNS verification set up, Search Console will automatically create new domain properties for you over the next few weeks, with data over all reports. Otherwise, to add a new domain property, go to the property selector, add a new domain property, and use DNS verification.We recommend using domain properties where possible going forward.
It might not be fully live yet, so give it some time.
It’s either already live or will be soon everywhere (sometimes these roll-outs take a little bit of time). You should see the options for domain / URL when you use “Add property” in the new Search Console.
