Group your properties into sets

Property sets will no longer be available after March, 2019. We are working on a solution to provide similar functionality for many use cases. See the Google Webmaster Blog announcement.

You can group up to 200 properties into a single aggregate property called a property set. A property set can contain properties of any other type (web pages or apps) except other sets. A property set shows aggregate data for all its member properties. A property set appears in the list of properties for your account.

Basic rules about property sets:

  • You can add any property to a set except another set.
  • You can add only verified properties from your account to a set.
  • You must have access to all set members in order to access a set.
  • If you later lose access to any property in a set, the entire set will become inaccessible to you. However, data will continue to be collected for the set, and you will be able to see data again as soon as you regain access (or reverify) all set members. Similarly, if any set member becomes unverified, you will lose access to the set until you verify ownership of all set members.
  • A set can have only one owner and no users; you cannot share a set with others.
  • Not all reports are available for property sets. However we're working to increase the number of reports available for property sets.
  • Set data is viewable only in aggregate form. For example, if set A contains properties X, Y, and Z, then all data for set A are combined values from X + Y + Z.  To see the data for X alone, you must switch properties, from property A (the set) to property X.
Create a property set

When creating a new property set, remember the following rules:

  • You must be at least a verified restricted user for all member properties in the set.
  • There is a limit of 200 properties in a set.
  • See other rules at the beginning of this article.

To create a new property set:

  1. In the Search Console home page, click Create a set.
  2. Optionally modify the name of the new set.
  3. Add members to your set from existing verified properties in your account.
  4. Click Save to save your new set. Clicking Cancel will not prevent the set from being created; to delete the set you must go back to the home page and delete the set from your property list.

It will take a few days to start seeing data for your new set, even if you already have data for all the member properties.

Edit a property set

To add or remove set members, change the name, or other attributes of a set:

  1. Find the set in the Search Console home page.
  2. Select Manage set > Edit set.

You can also get to the Edit set page by clicking the settings gear Settings  when viewing the set.

If you add or remove a member from a property set, data for this member will not be added or removed from the historical data.

Delete a property set

To delete a set

  1.  Find the set in the Search Console home page.
  2. Select Manage set > Delete set.
Data collection ends for a set as soon as you delete it, and you will not be able to access the previous data again.
