How to reconnect your Google Search Console
Google Search Console connection expires
The Google Search Console connection can sometimes expire in URLinspector, and here is how to fix that.
The symptoms of a problem with your GSC connection could be
- no fresh updates
- no data at all
- in all cases (we hope) - a yellow Warning sign in your top navigation
The Warning Sign in your top navigation
We show a yellow warning sign, in your top navigation, when we detect that the GSC connection has a problem.
To fix it, click on the exclamation mark.
Re-Connection your Google Search Console
If you have are logged into multiple accounts, you get the typical Oauth login prompt where you need to pick the right account as shown below.
Then (or if you only have 1 account) you see the privileges screen
You can click on
4 services to review the privileges you give.
The important one is
View Search Console data for your verified sites
View Search Console data without making any changes. (e.g., list sites, view crawl errors)
The other scopes are basics that “come with it”.
Re-Initialization of your profiles
URL Inspector tries to re-initialize all your profiles.
Failed Profile initialization
It is possible that some of the profiles remain in a “NO ACCESS” status. That is an indicator for a configuration problem in your Google Search Console.
Pro-Tip: Refreshing with new profiles to your account
If you have added new profiles to your Google Search Console Account, then you can
- go to
- click on
Setup all Domains with 1 Click
URLinspector will then load any new profiles from your Search Console.
