How to Connect Google Search Console to Google Analytics

Do you want to be able to see how your site is going in Google search? Google Search Console allows you to monitor your site’s presence in Google’s search results.

You can connect your Google Analytics account with Google Search Console, so you can easily analyze your SEO rankings along with other Analytics data.

Additionally, if you have the Plus Tier of MonsterInsights, you can see the Search Console report right in your MonsterInsights reports panel right in WordPress.

Prerequisites:

  1. You will need to have already added and verified your sites in Google Search Console.
  2. You will also need to have already added each variation you have for your site, including:
    1. http://yoursite.com
    2. http://www.yoursite.com
    3. https://yoursite.com (If applicable.)
    4. https://www.yoursite.com (If applicable.)
  3. Please note that analytics and the Google Search Console is sensitive to the above variations, so if you’re forwarding to https:// but you only connect the search data of http://, you won’t see any data in analytics.

Sign into your Google Analytics account, and select the website in your list that you want to connect with your Search Console account.
