Maintaining your online presence takes time. If you look at all I’ve listed above, that’s easily more than an hour of work. But it depends what the value of that presence is to you, if you’re doing this as an individual, or to your organization, if you’re doing this on behalf of a brand or product.

We’ve traded dollars for time, in lots of these equations, as we see the return on our advertising spend diminish. It’s your choice whether you want to maintain an active online presence, or if you want to get away with a bit less.

How to share access of Google Webmaster account with other users

Today I received a question in my mail box through SEO Professional Group that “how to check the backlinks of any website recorded by Google”. It will be in your knowledge that Google link: operator is no more fetching updated stats of backlinks and only webmaster can see these details from Google Webmaster Area. However many website owner can’t share the credentials of their Google accounts as same account are used with email, Google Adwords, Analytics etc.

However still many folks are not aware that now you can add multiple user for individual domains as owner.

Following are the steps to follow

  1. Logon to your Google Webmasters account.
  2. On your Dashboard (Home Page) you will have list of domains which you have added in your account; under the verification column (if you have already verified that you are owner of the domain) you need to click on Add or
    remove owners.
  3. On next page click on “Add a user…” button. provide the email address of the person whom you want to provide the access.
  4. Click the continue button.
  5. Ask the granted user to logon on google webmaster with the email address submitted above in step 3; domain(s) will be listed there with complete data. Enjoy.

If you have any question don’t hesitate to post in comments.
