Google announces new “Domain Properties” feature in Google Search Console.

We’ve all been there. When you’re working hard, trying to give Google Search Console the most complete view of your website, you can’t help but wonder, is there anyway the good samaritans at Google can make this process just a bit easier?

Google’s functions are largely based on user feedback.

If you have a great idea, you should definitely consider drafting a suggestion on Webmaster Center’s help forum. Google’s latest announcement on Webmaster Center is the new “Domain Properties” feature available on Search Console. This new tool was created based on user feedback, proving the Google experts do listen to your suggestions on the help forum.

The “domain properties” feature makes it easier for businesses and digital marketing agencies to update websites on Google Search Console.

For those familiar with the search console tool, the domain properties feature will show data for all URLs under the domain name. This will also include the protocols, subdomains and paths. Mobile pages are not a thing of the past. The public continues to choose mobile when accessing the internet for day-to-day web purposes. Search Console makes mobile website updates easier because regardless of whether or not you use m-dot URLS for mobile pages, domain properties will give Google Search a complete view of your website’s data.

Learn more about Domain Properties at Google’s Webmaster Support website:

“A Domain property URLs is a domain, any optional number of subdomains, and a public suffix. The public suffix is part of the property definition, so the Domain property “example.com” does not include “example.org” or “example.il.com”. For example, the following URLs are all valid Domain properties:

  • example.com
  • m.example.com
  • support.m.example.org
  • support.m.example.co.es

www is not supported. If you add www to your property name, the www will be ignored. For example, if you specify www.example.com as your property, your property will be created as example.com

Coverage

A Domain property aggregates data for all subdomains, protocols, and subpaths. 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 both http and https.

Here are some example Domain properties, and what they aggregate”
