How to create a report using Google Search Console?

With Google Search Console you can have a better understanding of your digital presence. Start reporting on your Google Search properties with a DashThis dashboard, to easily track your organic performance.

1 – Connect your account

 

It’s very easy to connect your Google Search Console account to DashThis. It requires only 2 quick steps:

  1. In the Integration Manager, choose Google Search Console and click on Add.

    Integration Manager GSC
  2. You’re then redirected to Google. Sign in as usual and allow DashThis to access your GSC data (don’t worry – we only use it to generate your dashboards!).
 
As a sign of success, your account now appears under the section Integrations in use in DashThis!

You’re all set and done to create dashboards now!

3 – Notes

  • Due to Google Search Console’s API limitations, new widgets can only show up to 16 months of historical data. However, we store data as soon as a new widget is created, so we’ll be able to display historical data as far back as when the widget was first created in DashThis, even if this goes back further than 16 months.
  • Please note that there can be up to 3 days of latency in Google Search Console’s data, due to possible lags between when the numbers are calculated by Google and when they are visible to Search Console. To address this issue, we refresh completed periods for up to 4 days after the period ended.
