  • Hello,

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

    Just to be sure, have you tried to deauthorize and authorize again Rank Math from accessing the Search Console?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi, thanks for the response. Yes, I have deauthgorized and reauthorized the account several times. I have verified the account via google as per instructions, but the only URL that won’t show-up is the one I need. After reverification attempt, only one URL will show up- but it is incorrect.

    Hi,

    Please make sure that you have verified the correct version of your website on the Google Search Console (http or https, www or non-www).

    Then, please make sure that the Google account you used to connect your Google Search Console profile is the same one you have used to verify your domain on GSC.

    If it still doesn’t work, we have found that using a different Google account to verify your domain and connect your website usually works. Or, you can try using the Google Site Kit if it still won’t work and disable the Search Console inside Rank Math by going to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Dashboard

    I hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Hey Alberto, thanks again for your responses.

    I have done all of the above, except trying a new Google account. I’m really not inclined to add to my already vast collection of accounts and password to track.

    I am going to uninstall then reinstall Rank Math and start from scratch. If this is unsuccesful, I am unfortunately going to have to uninstall it and await an update on the plugin that eliminates this problem. I know this is affecting other users, so I am hopeful someone at Rank Math is taking this seriously and is working on a solution.

    Ok, so here’s some good news, I went directly to “https://search.google.com/search-console”, signed-in and discoved that the property (URL) was not listed, even though it was previously verified. So, I chose “add property” from the dropdown menu, added the domain via “URL Prefix”, then clicked the “Refresh Sites” button in Rank Math and the correct URL finally appeared, YEAH!!!

    Hello,

    I believe we can close and mark your issue as resolved.

    If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.

    Hey Michael, thanks, and yes, this ticket can be closed. I think, however, that Rank Math support may want to include the solution when responding to users who are experiencing the same issue. In my case, and perhaps in others, I was under the impression that when I verified the site with Google and inserted the verification code in Rank Math, that the site was then automatically listed as a property in GSC. That, however, needs to be done separately by the user for it to show up in the list on Rank Math.

    Hello,

    We are super happy that this resolved your issue. We will keep that in mind in future.

    Thank you.
