Why do you require Owner permissions?

We understand that the initial request to add your personal unique Tag Parrot service account as an Owner within your Google Search Console account may seem a bit intrusive, and we agree – it can be annoying.

However, it's crucial to know that this strict requirement is set by Google to enable Tag Parrot to act on behalf of your website and efficiently submit pages for indexing. Only with Owner permissions can the service account perform its tasks effectively; any other permission level won't suffice.

Now, you may be wondering about the security implications of this arrangement. Let us put your mind at ease. The service account is not intended for individuals to log in directly to Google Search Console. Instead, it is granted highly specific permissions, solely designed to interact with the Google Indexing API and carry out the following actions:

  • Submit a page indexing request.
  • Submit a page removal request (please note that this action is not supported by Tag Parrot).
  • Check the status of a page request.

To ensure utmost security, the service account employs access keys for API authentication. Rest assured that these access keys are securely stored within the Google Cloud platform and are never shared with anyone else.

  • What does "Awaiting Status" actually mean?
