Add an admin

You can add up to 200 users as admins for your search engine. Each user must have a valid Google Account.

Admins you add will be able to view and edit almost any data associated with your search engine. However, they won't be able to:

  • Delete the search engine
  • Add or remove admin accounts
  • Access the Make money tab.

To add a user:

  1. On the Control Panel, in the left-hand menu, click Admin accounts.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Type the email address of the person you want to add. The email address must be associated with a valid Google Account, or it won't be valid.
  4. Click OK.

You can also create a custom search engine using Webmaster Tools. When you do this, you'll be the owner of that search engine, and you'll be able to edit it using both Webmaster Tools and the Custom Search control panel.

If you've added other verified site owners to your Webmaster Tools account, those site owners will be able to view and edit related search engines in Webmaster Tools. However, they won't be able to edit the search engine in the Custom Search control panel unless you add them as an admin account via the Custom Search control panel.
