Google: New and improved Association Page for the Search Console

The new version of the Association Page for the Search Console does not put users under pressure to act. Because all so-called associations that you have previously set are automatically transferred to the new associations page. Google Search Central announced this via Twitter. With the association, users can connect properties with one another and take advantage of extended functions. For example, Search Console data can then be viewed in the Google Analytics Property.

Various connection options for more page functionality

Google’s Association is a connection between Search Console Properties and other entities or properties in the Google cosmos, such as explained in the blog post of Google Search Central becomes. A Search Console property can be linked to an Analytics account, but also to a YouTube channel or a Chrome Web Store account.

From now on you can also use Search Console Domain Properties be connected to Google Analytics to better track organic search results. According to Google, the insights of the Search Console reports can be optimized in Google Analytics.

For more information about the new Associations Page, Google provides the Google Search Central Help Forum and the Google search support ready, on the other hand there is one Association Page help page (which, however, cannot be displayed at the time of writing the article). Anyone who uses different channels or properties from and on Google should consider the options of connection via the association page at least once as a potential measure.
