How to Add/Verify a Domain property In the Google Search Console –
First of all, connect your Blog to the Google Search Console and then submit the sitemap of your site to the Search Console. After that, you can add/verify a Domain Property in Google Search Console.
See below to learn the supported URL syntax and which URLs are included in your property. A Domain property requires DNS record verification to prove ownership unless the property is on a Google product such as Blogger or Google Sites.
A Domain property URL is a URL without a protocol (http/https) or any directory parts (/some/path/). Note that the public suffix (.org, .com, and so on) is part of the property name, so the Domain property “example.com” does not include “example.org” or “example.il.com”.
The following URLs are all valid Domain property definitions:
If you add www to your property name, the www will be ignored. For example, if you specify www.example.com as your property URL, the property will be created as example.com
A Domain property aggregates data for all subdomains, protocols, and subpaths of the property.
For example, if you define a Domain property as “example.com“, the data includes example.com, any subdomains of example.com (for example, m.example.com, support.m.example.com, www.example.com, and so on), and any subpaths of any of those domains, on http, https, and ftp.
Here are some example Domain properties, and what they aggregate:
example.com includes these URLs
