In an announcement by Google, site owners can now verify their web sites with Google Search Console in a new way, auto-DNS verification. This works with a select number of domain name service providers and helps to simplify the process of getting your website verified within Google Search Console.

According to Google, the company “collaborated with various domain name registrars to automate part of the verification flow.” There is now a new flow that “will guide you through the necessary steps needed to update your registrar configuration so that your DNS record includes the verification token we provide,” Google said. This is going to make the verification process easier.

In order to verify your domain using the new flow:

  • Click “add property” from the property selector (drop down on top of Search Console sidebar).
  • Choose the “Domain” option.

The system will guide you through a series of steps, including a visit to the registrar site where you need to apply changes.

There are several other methods documented by Google to verify your domain for Google Search Console that you can find over here.
