How To Link Google Analytics With Google Search Console
When you log in to your Google Analytics account, you need to find the Admin tab
Find Property Settings below Create Property tab
In the next step, you have to go to Property Tab and select property settings
Now when you click on Property settings, you will see middle corner button “Adjust Search Console”, click on this button to choose the property from Google Search Console that needs to be associated to Google Analytics account. Also, you can edit the property linked to your Google Analytics property
I am sharing the real-time example of another blog from below image in which it shows “What Is Trending On Twitter” is associated with this Google Analytics account.
So what if you need to link to a new website?
You have to click on edit or add a property from Google Search Console
Once you wish to associate new or different website Google Search Console will provide with a list of websites so check the relevant website and click save.
Once you are done you should see a popup which asks you to confirm the association and any existing association will be removed.
I am explaining the property delete option at the end so that you won’t get confused in earlier settings.
Before you hit the delete property I suggest you make sure on your action because if you are doing it by mistake then Google analytics will take enough time to work as normal and may show incorrect details about traffic on your website.
So when you hit delete property you will be seeing this message that asks you to confirm that you really want to move this property to the rubbish bin.
