Is it possible to display all data with one property? Explain the contents and setting method

From Google Search Console to the registered site on January 29th
Email from Sachiko

I received the email, but what does that mean? I think there are also people who say that. This time I would like to explain the contents and setting method.

All data can be displayed with one property

When using the conventional search console, only the item "URL prefix" goes through different servers such as "https: // ~~~" and "https: // www. ~~~".Must be set for each URLwas.
Property

However, Google's official blog for webmasters (English version) announced on February 27, 2019, in the property type "domain", the corresponding domain regardless of the difference with or without "www" and subdomain etc. You can now view all of your data.

Put simply

Until now, multiple data were aggregated and managed for each URL, but now all are completed, eliminating the need for aggregation and registration.about it.
It's a very useful feature because it was difficult to manually figure out how the entire site was "recognized" by Google search.

By the way, Google also officially recommends using the domain property.

How to set that all data can be displayed with one property

Until now, if you have never registered the URL of the site in your Google account, when you access the site of the search console, the property type selection screen will be displayed, so enter the URL and add it. ..

If you have already registered the URL from the search console, select the registered URL on the management screen of the search console.
Select "Add Property" at the bottom of the registered URL.

As a precaution when entering the URL in the domain property
Don't include http or https.
Domain selection screen

After entering the URL, select "Continue".

Steps to verify ownership of domain properties

Domain property ownership verification

Next, you need to verify to prove that you own the domain (URL).
First of all, there is a copy button in the part that says "Copy the following TXT record to the DNS settings of XX.com", so please copy it. You will need it later.

After that, set up on the rental server or domain registration service from the search console.

DNS record settings

I think that the setting flow is slightly different depending on the server, but since the basics of setting should be the same, I will only talk about the flow.

  • Enter the server panel
  • Make sure that the domain to be set can be set with the URL registered in the search console this time.
  • Enter the domain's "DNS record settings"
  • Please refer to the image for the contents of the setting.

    DNS table

    After completing the settings, let's return to the search console again.
    If the DNS settings are correct, "Ownership confirmed" is displayed.

    The above is the method for adding domain properties and confirming ownership.

    Welcome message
    When the domain property settings are complete, a welcome message like the one in the image will be displayed.

    What are the benefits of URL prefixes?

    If Google recommends "domain properties", why not need a "URL prefix"? Some people may think that.
    I will also talk about the benefits of URL prefixes.

    When you want to separate data by directory

    I think there are cases where corporate sites, product sites, support sites, etc. are developed in subdirectories.

    In that case, the URL prefix is recommended because it allows you to investigate the index status and search inflow reports for each subdirectory as needed.

    Can be linked with analytics

    By linking the search console and analytics, you can analyze the performance of search keywords (search ranking, clicks, etc.) in association with access analysis data.

    Only the properties registered with "URL prefix" are targeted for cooperation with analytics, so if you want to perform detailed access analysis, you should select the URL prefix.

    summary

    The function of the domain property itself is not so new, but depending on the situation of the site, it seems that you will receive emails from the search console at any time.

    Even if you receive an email unexpectedly, it is not a big problem like a coverage error, and you do not know how to deal with it.
