Google have announced that webmasters are now able to group together multiple properties within Google’s Search Console, enabling you receive aggregate data within the Analytics report.
Historically, it’s always been possible to view Search Analytics data, such as clicks and impressions, via Google’s Search Console – formerly known as Webmaster Tools –
on a property-by-property basis. However, due to each property having to be added individually, such as the www version of your site and the non-www. version, receiving comprehensive performance data for a domain was always a slow process.
However, Google Search Console Sets fixes this issue.
Google said: “Mobile app, mobile website, desktop website — how do you track their combined visibility in search? Until now, you’ve had to track all of these statistics separately. Search Console is introducing the concept of “property sets,” which let you combine multiple properties (both apps and sites) into a single group to monitor the overall clicks and impressions in search within a single report.”
As shown on the right; to create a set within Search Console, all you need to do is:
- Click on the “Create a set” button at the top right of the page.
- Enter your ‘Set Name’
- Add to members that you want to include
