403 Error

  • Resolved Lucy Whitaker

    Like a lot of other users have mentioned in tickets, I am also having the 403 error. I have set up everything correctly. I cannot find a previous ticket where a solution was suggested that actually resolved it.
    I have deleted and readded the plugin. I have gone through the steps with two separate emails and still not working. Please help.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    This error suggests that the service account does not have enough permissions on your search console. Please ensure you follow these instructions religiously: https://rankmath.com/blog/google-indexing-api/#4-2-403-permission-denied-failed-to-verify-the-url-ownership

    You should also ensure the authorized domain is the correct version(http/htpps and www/non-www)

    This is a tried and tested method and we are certain these instructions work.They have worked for 1000s of users so it has to be an issue with your setup. It is possible that you missed a step or incorrectly chose some option.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes I’ve sorted thanks. It was the www/non-www thing. Why do we even have that anymore?!


    We couldn’t say.

    But, we are glad that it is all sorted now.

    We are always here if you need us in the future.

    Hey, if it isn’t too much to ask for – would you mind leaving us a review here?


    It only takes a couple of minutes but helps us tremendously.

    It would mean so much to us.

    Thank you.
