Create reports and dashboards using the new Google Search Console API


Google recently updated their Google Webmaster Tools to be the new Google Search Console. While this is an important update, the big news behind this is that Google now offers a really great API to access their search analytics which is soooo important to every marketer!

It’s been a long journey to get this new API. We have been waiting for this for years. We had to explain why we couldn’t get Google Webmaster Tools search queries few times in the past (here and here) before releasing a workaround to finally get the stats you wanted.

Today, we are very happy to announce that we are replacing this working but shaky Google Webmaster Tools integration with a new solid and powerful Google Search Console integration!

And there’s more! We now also offer a more complete set of filtering operators like “contains,” “not contains,” “equals” and “not equal.” You should be able to easily create awesome Google Search Console reports and dashboards.

    Stéphane, allo, allo. Ce billet date… mais je suis curieux. Quand on ajoute un widget « Google Search Console » dans DashThis, vous allez conserver les données historiques tant – et aussi longtemps – que l’on ne modifie pas le widget. Est-ce correct?

    • Stéphane Guérin

      Ouep, exact!

      • Adrien O’Leary

        Nice. Nouvelle question : Dans DashThis, quand on affiche une liste d’éléments (qui viennent de Google Search Console), peut-on faire en sorte d’affichage davantage que 10 éléments?

        • Stéphane Guérin

          Oui, bien sûr. Comme toutes les listes, tu peux l’étirer vers le bas pour en afficher jusqu’a 30.

          • Adrien O’Leary

            Oh My God. Je ne savais pas ça! You make my day. Thanks!
