Google Search Console Users and Permissions Issue Resolved



Google Search Console Users and Permissions Issue Resolved


A few months ago we reported about a Google Search Console users permissions issue. Well, that issue is now resolved according to Caio Barros from Google. The issue seemed more like an issue with communicating the true access than a bug with access.

Previously, there was an a problem in Search Console’s user interface where Full Users see their status as a Delegated Owners at Settings > Ownership Verification. He said “if when you go to Ownership verification you see your status as Delegated Owner but you cannot see the Users and Permissions option your user is probably a Full User and not a Delegated Owner.”

Now, Google adjusted the details in Search Console to be clear. Caio said “this issue should be fixed now.” He explained If you are a Full user but don’t have ownership (i.e., don’t have permission to add and remove users), you’ll see a message like this:

This message should make the real user permissions unambiguous.

If you are an owner and wish to delegate ownership to another user, you don’t have to go to Webmaster Tools anymore. There is an option directly in user management. Just set the user permission to “Owner”:

In this case, the user will see their ownership verification as delegated owner. They are still not a verified owner, but can manager users and permissions:

Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

Google is testing “more like this” star feature, the things to know box on the right side and the product panels with shaded backgrounds. Google said sometimes a brand becomes so popular it will rank above the general meaning of the word in Google Search. Page speed issues won’t lead to your site being removed from Google. I also posted my weekly SEO video recap – with a cold and cough.
