How To Add A Google Analytics & Search Console User

We will need to get access to Google Analytics (GA), Google Search Console (GSC) and Google My Business (GMB).

Solve uses GA and GSC to monitor your website. These tools provide full website traffic statistics and information on your website health. We use this information to monitor and improve your website’s performance.

Please ensure you add (click to copy) as the admin email address.

Once this has been set up, we can move on to the next step.

If you need any assistance or do not have a GA, GMB or GSC account, please let us know. Any queries, just email keavy@solve.co.uk and we’ll be more than happy to help!
