Google: Long Term Plan You Should Switch To Domain Properties & Drop Other Forms

Google's John Mueller said on Twitter a good long term plan for those who have verified properties in Google Search Console is to drop the individual property verification methods and just go with the domain properties method, where everything is combined across most canonicals.

For example, for this site, I have the http, https and the domain property all verified here in Google Search Console. Here is a screen shot:

What John is recommending is that in the long term, you may just want to have the domain property version in your account and remove the other ones.

Although, some detailed SEOs may want to keep all of them to do some more interesting analysis.
