Adding your website to Google Search Console (GSC) is a crucial step for monitoring its performance in search results and gaining insights into its visibility.

During this process, you might need to change your DNS (Domain Name System) provider options to ensure a smooth connection between your website and GSC.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to successfully change your DNS provider options when adding a property to Google Search Console.

Step #1:

Go to the Google Search Console verification page then Click Search Property> Add Property.

Step #2:

Add your domain name to the Domain property type.

Step #3:

Once you continue you will then see instructions on how to Verify the domain ownership via DNS record.

In this step, if you see as a default option in the dropdown, click the down arrow and select 'Any DNS Provider'.

Step #4:

Next, click Start verification, Google will then provide you with a unique verification code that you need to insert as a TXT record to your domain.

Step #5:

From there, copy the TXT record then login to your Domain registrar and find the option to add a new record, often labeled "Add Record," "Add New," or similar.

  • Choose "TXT" as the record type.

  • Enter the verification code provided by Google into the "Value" or "Data" field.

  • Save the new TXT record.

Step #6:

In the last step, simply wait for a moment until the DNS record is propagated and then verify the ownership in GSC. Click "Verify" and wait for Google to check the DNS settings.

Once the verification is successful, your property will be added to Google Search Console.
