Google has changed their Google Webmaster Tools into 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. A great API is so important to every marketer!

We now also offer a complete set of filtering operators like “contains,” “not contains,” “equals” and “not equals.”

 

With all these metrics, dimensions, and filters, you can easily create awesome Google Search Console reports and dashboards.

Some notes to help you connect your GSC account to DashThis:

• Due to some API limitations, your widgets can only show up to 90 days of historical data and can’t display data for the last two days.

• In order for the procedure to work,  all Webmaster Tools profiles must be authorized in your Google Search Console account. Otherwise, we won’t be able to import Search Analytics data.
