Rank Math App – Authorization Error

  • Hi,
    I have created an app in the Google Developer Console. I have gone through all the steps in the tutorial.
    When I test my app with Rank Math, instead of the consent screen I get:
    “Authorization Error
    Error 400: redirect_uri_mismatch
    The redirect URI in the request, urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob, can only be used by a Client ID for native application. It is not allowed for the WEB client type. You can create a Client ID for native application at https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials/”

    I have to mention that at the step:”Create OAuth client ID” I chose “Web Application” since the option you provided (Other) was not there.

    What can I do to make it work?
    thank you

  • Hello,

    I tried to redo the guide just to check about it but I found the “Other” option. Could you make sure you did all the steps right? That Google tool is full of options and can be confusing.

    Looking forward to help you

    Thank you for your prompt answer. I started retracing my steps
    I double checked:
    – Enabled Google Search Console API
    – Enabled Google Analytics Reporting API
    – Enabled Google Adsense Host API
    – Enabled Site Verification API

    When I got to step 6 – I didn’t know what to do:
    “The consent screen is where the users can see what kind of data they are allowing the app to access and whether they approve the action. It is similar to the consent screen we shared at the beginning of the article. The difference is that once you set it up, you will see your app requesting the permissions instead of Rank Math.”

    I had only done step 7 “OAuth Consent Screen”

    What can I do to make sure I set up no 6?

    thank you,


    Thank you for the follow up

    Step 6 is more of a descriptive step, to make you understand what will be entailed in the next steps.

    Hope this helps you. Thank you.

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    It seems google no longer include the other option. You can use the web application selection and let us know how it goes.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.



    I wanted to know that creating an app is only recommended for advanced users. If you are unsure or if something is not working – you can continue to use the Rank Math’s Search Console option.

    Hope that helps.
