Step 3: Next step is to “Verify domain ownership via DNS record”.

This page describes the steps on how you can verify your website/domain ownership. Below screen shot shows the details of how to verify the domain.

Verify domain ownership via DNS record

To verify the domain ownership you have to login to the account where you have hosted your website. In my case, it is Hostinger (yours can be from godaddy.com or namecheap.com or someother).
My website domain name is from BigRock and hosting is at Hostinger. And in this case I have added the DNS record(TXT record) at Hostinger site. It depends where the nameservers are pointing, there you should add the code.

Step 4: Copy the TXT record and use it to verify your domain ownership

Verify your domain by entering the TXT record (I entered the details in hostinger, where I have hosted my website). Below are few link to guide you on how to use this TXT record for verifying the domain ownership.

My website domain name is from BigRock and hosting is at Hostinger. And in this case I have added the DNS record(TXT record) at Hostinger site. It depends where the nameservers are pointing, there you should add the code.

Step 5: After you have added the TXT record to your DNS Configuration, come back to the page discussed in step 4, and click on “VERIFY”.

If you get a Verified Successfully message, that means you are done with verification process on Google Search Console. Else, you have to try the verification process after few hours or after a couple of days. Normally, this process takes 2 to 3 hours.

I got below error during my domain ownership verification.

Google URL Ownership Error: We found these DNS TXT records:

Failure reason:
We couldn’t find your verification token in your domain’s TXT records. You might need to wait a few minutes before Google sees your changes to the TXT records.
We found these DNS TXT records:

  • v=spf1 include:spf.mx.hostinger.com include:relay.mailchannels.net ~all

And after roughly 3 hours, when I tried to Verify the Domain Ownership it was successful. And below screen showed up.

Data will start population in Google Search Console after a few days based on your site’s performance. So keep your fingers crossed.
