Can’t Setup

  • I’m trying to follow instructions from
    Apparently those instructions are outdated since some options doesn’t show up or work anymore so I can’t setup search console manually.

    Then I tried automatic setup and gave Rank Math access to my account (which I didn’t want to but had no other option) and for some reason Rank Math is also gathering data from all my other websites, unrelated to the one I’m managing in WordPress.

    I’m completely lost and have no idea what to do now.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for getting in touch with us.

    Can you please try removing the cache and see if that helps?


    Sometimes Google can get wonky with their API.

    We also released a Beta update, you can check it it does fix the issue.

    Please enable the Beta update by following this:

    beta update

    If you are unable to see an update, please clear Rank Math’s transients from:
    WP Dashboard > Rank Math > Status & Tools > Database Tools > Remove Rank Math Transients > Remove transients
    remove transients rank math

    Please clear the caches, server, and WordPress after updating.

    If the issue is still not resolved, please let us know.

    We are here to assist. Thank you.

    Hi Michael. Sorry for taking that long to reply.
    I’m starting to think the problem is not with RankMath itself but with the instructions on how to setup Google APIs.

    The screenshots are outdated and I cannot enable the “../auth/analytics” and the “../auth/analytics.readonly” services because Google now demands a justification for those scopes and they are taking a bit to reply. So it’s not all that straightforward anymore.

    Unless I’m doing something wrong.


    The custom Google app method is only for advanced users and the setup there is not really straight-forward.

    That is why we only recommend it for users who know how it works and for everyone else – we recommend using the app that Rank Math comes bundled with.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Uzair. Thanks for your reply.
    The reason why I am not using the built-in setup is that RankMath is pulling data from all of my different project in Google. So I see pageviews from different project accounts which are under my same email address.

    I could use it if there’s a way to restrict data from that specific website.


    Can you please try removing the cache and updating the cache again like in this screenshot?

    That usually does the trick. Please let us know if it doesn’t work.

    Nothing. Still showing impressions and pageviews from other projects.

    No matter what I do it always get another domain property unrelated to my site.
    I already deleted cache, manually updated cache, deauthorized RM and authorized it again…


    We recommend using the Site Kit by Google in that case. It seems like your Google account’s API is having some issues setting up with Rank Math’s developer account.

    Ok. Thanks.


    We are glad we could assist you.

    If you do have another question in the future, please feel free to create a new forum topic, and it will be our pleasure to assist you again.

    Thank you.
