Linking Search Console to Google Ads

Before you begin

Here are some requirements before you link your Search Console and Google Ads accounts. 

  • You must have administrative access to the Google Ads account that you want linked to the Search Console account.

  • You’ll need a Search Console account. If you don’t have one, you can set one up at anytime on the Search Console site.

  • Your account must also be an owner of the Search Console account, as well an owner of the website associated with the Search Console account.

    • If you’re not listed as an owner of the Search Console account, a request for access to the website will be sent to the current owner when you try to link your Google Ads account to the Search Console account.

    • If there’s no Search Console account set up for the website you’re trying to link to, you’ll be prompted to claim it as yours during the linking process.
