Support » Plugin: Site Kit by Google » Can’t Connect to Google

  • Resolved simonbbs


    Hey Guys,

    We’re attempting to setup SiteKit but we get caught in an infinite redirect when trying to verify with Google.

    The backend plugin settings take us to the Google Sign in, we can sign in and see the “Welcome to Site Kit! Let’s get you set up.” screen, but the proceed button under Verify site ownership just loads for a minute, then leaves us on the same page asking us to hit the same “Proceed” button, and just looks there infinitely.

    I’ve checked some other tickets and can confirm we have matching https:// addresses in the site settings tab.

    @simonbbs thanks for your report and the detailed steps you took. Are you able to provide your site URL or perhaps your Site Health information?

    This is happening to me at the moment as well. Trying to connect a new site and it just keeps looping me back through the process. I even reset Site Kit but it won’t resolve the connection.

    Also confirmed matching https. Site health is all up to date.

    Something is weird because I’ve connected several other sites to Site Kit this week without problems. Perhaps something changed with the recent update?

    Hi @sssv ,

    I have same issue with you. In my side after allow permission to the SiteKit its redirect me to the something like oauth URL, but it cannot resolved by my NginX. So its give me 404 Not Found.

    Thank you

    @simonbbs could you update to version 1.4.0 and let us know if the issue is resolved for you?

    @simonbbs since we have not heard from you, I am marking your support topic as resolved. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to open a new support topic.

    I’m also having trouble connecting site kit and experiencing the Loop back to the welcome page. I’m on Site Kit version 1.6, have reverted my .htaccess to the bare minimum (WP index.php rules and PHP 7 handler), and tried adding the ModSecurity rules outlined in a different ticket.

    @usestrict Can you please open a new support topic as per forum guidelines and we would be happy to assist from there.

    Please include the same information, which is very useful in troubleshooting your case. You shouldn’t need to make any ModSecurity changes as of recent versions of the plugin, but open a new support topic and we can hopefully get you connected successfully.

    Done. Thanks.
