Multiple Google Search Console properties for the same site is not a bad thing

It’s okay to have multiple properties verified for the same site in the Google Search Console. It’s not a bad thing, it will not hurt you, in fact it can give you more detailed data to use if you do. In fact, John Mueller from Google confirmed that it’s fine to have multiple properties verified for the same site in the Google Search Console.

John said this on Reddit when asked “My Search Console dashboard has two properties, a domain property and an HTTPS property. I assume this is bad? Is there anything I need to do to update it, so there is only one property? “

The answer is no, it’s not a bad thing, John said “It’s fine that way.”

I have three properties confirmed for this domain, I actually tend to have several:

So confirm them all and do not despair about it.

Personally, I primarily look at the domain property version, but if I just need to look at the http version, I can.
