We have switched to an HTTPS site to replace the client's old site. The domain name is the same, but the majority of pages have different names and different URLs compared to the old site. Redirects are used where required to ensure users are getting the https pages.
I have not been successful in verifying the domain property in Google Search Console. Even after waiting more than 72 hours, the required DNS TXT record is not available. Using Dig, all I can see is the spf TXT record.
I'm looking at the alternative of adding another property with the https prefix instead of using a domain property. My two main questions are:
- How long should I wait before I delete the previous property for the http version?
- What will be the search ranking impact, in this case?
