Error 403 Instant Indexing

#132639
  • Hi,
    I tried to install the Instant Indexing plugin following your tutorial here:

    https://rankmath.com/blog/google-indexing-api/?utm_campaign=Social

    However, when I press the “Send to API” button I am getting the following error:

    Error 403
    Permission denied. Failed to verify the URL ownership.

    And I cannot give indexing service permissions of the Owner in Google Search Console. The reason is, I have only two options: Full and Restricted. Currently, permissions are set to Full.

    Thank you for your help.

    Regards,
    Darko

  • 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 is not listed as Owner for the site in Search Console. You can fix this by following these steps:

    This error suggests that the service account is not listed as Owner for the site in Search Console. You can fix this by following these steps:
    null

    On the next page, add the service account as an owner with the button:
    null

    Then, head back to the Search Console and refresh to confirm that the service account has been added correctly.

    I hope this resolves your issue.

    Hi,
    I am following those steps, but when I click Manage Property Owners, I don’t have an Add Owner option. I have only Add Property, but I cannot enter email there, only web URL.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    right now I saw, when I click on my property (my website URL), I have an Add owner option there. Should I add a service account there?

    Hello,

    Yes, that would be correct. You need to enter your email as a property owner and get it to verify.

    I hope this resolves your issue.
