Solution for “URL not in property”
We have 2 solutions for this “URL not in property” problem. You can try both one by one.
1. Change your Gmail account and Re-add your domain property- In this method, your property is new and the entire search result and impression are found again.
2. You just need to add new correct property– There are 4 versions of any website. The problem starts from here. When you add a domain to the search console and later make a change to the domain’s www or http for some reason, there is a problem like “URL not in property”.
In such a case, you will have to add the domain property again with a new change. Consider that earlier the domain used to start from www but now the domain does not have www.
Let’s say your old domain is https://www.example.com. And there is a new domain-https://example.com, then you have to verify and add the new domain to the search console.
after that re submit the sitemap in new domain property. and then Inspect a URL in new domain i.e https://example.com
Similarly, you have to do it for the rest of the website version (the version you have a problem with).
If you want, you can add all four versions to the property and authenticate it then submit the sitemap from each version one by one and see whatever works for you & also inspect new URLs in search console. after inspecting URLs you will not find “URL not in property”.
This 2nd method works for everyone. this will not lose your old property. If you feel any problem regarding this issue please leave a comment below. I will definitely help you.
