This might be my most challenging job ever. I’m not a coder or a designer, so I don’t know much about how things are done in marketing. I don’t have any experience in the industry. And here I am trying to understand the world of marketing while making decisions.
That’s why I’m in a constant search for the right tools. In the last week I’ve bought (and used) Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and the Google Search Console API.
Here’s why I prefer the Google Search Console API over the other two:
- I can get the data in the form of numbers. I can’t build a report using Google Data Studio.
- You don’t get “queries” as you can in the Google Search Console.
- The data is updated daily. I can’t imagine if you’re a market research analyst and you’re working on a project, you’re going to spend hours and hours making reports, you’re going to have the same data every day. In the Google Search Console, you can have a project and you can create a report.
- You can add new Google accounts. I can’t imagine a market research analyst sitting at home and not being able to see the results of his/her searches because he/she doesn’t have the Google account.
You probably know what I’m talking about. I’m a real market research analyst, but I know it’s getting more and more difficult to manage all this data and the reports. I can’t imagine the time I spend on this!
Before I get into the Google Search Console API, let me tell you a little bit about the Google Search Console.
Google Search Console and how it works
The Google Search Console (formerly known as Webmasters tool) is a tool that allows you to check your website’s performance. It allows you to check your site’s performance in the search engine results pages (SERPs). It does this by analyzing the data from your Google search results.
The goal of the Google Search Console is to help you improve the performance of your website in the search engine results pages.
Here are some of the things you can do with the Google Search Console:
- Monitor site traffic
- Monitor your SEO
- Run A/B Tests
- Check your sitemap
- Monitor your backlinks
The tool is free, but it’s limited. Here’s what you can do with it:
1. Monitor your site’s performance in the Google search results
It’s worth checking your site’s performance because you can do something about it. The best way to do this is to monitor your site’s performance in the search results.
To do this, you have to log in to the Google Search Console.
If you don’t have an account, you can create one on the Google Search Console. You can also add a new account.
It’s important to note that you need a Google account to use the Google Search Console. You can’t log in using a fake account or by sending an email to the Google Search Console account or using any other method.
2. Monitor your SEO
The tool doesn’t only analyze the data, it also lets you know if your site is doing well or not.
Here’s how you can monitor your site’s SEO:
First, you will have to click on the “Manage Search Appearance” link.
Then, you’ll have to log in to your Google account.
You need to click on the “Tools” menu and then on “Site Audit”.
You’ll see a list of all the pages on your site.
Then, you’ll have to visit the pages and click on the “Search Appearance” link in the top-right corner.
After that, you’ll be asked to report on the content of the pages in the search results. You’ll find a link in the top-right corner that says “Submit report”.
You’ll then have to click on the “Submit Report” button.
You’ll then be asked to select the “Google Search Console” option.
After that, you’ll see a report with all the data that indicates how Google is treating your site.
You’ll also see a list of recommendations on how to improve your site’s SEO.
It’s important to note that this tool only gives you a report on SEO, not on content. But if you have a good SEO, then this tool will help you improve your SEO.
3. Run A/B Tests
The Google Search Console is not only great for SEO.
If you want to know how well your page performs in the search results, then you should run an A/B test.
Here’s how you can do this:
- First, you need to click on the “Manage Search Appearance” link.
Then, you’ll have to click on the “A/B Test” link.
On the next screen, you’ll have to fill out the following fields:
- An A/B test name
- A/B test type
- A/B test URL
- Results URL
You’ll also have to add a description to your description field.
After that, you’ll have to select the “Check my site” option.
When you go back to the main screen, you will see the following:
- You’ll see the list of results.
- You’ll see the average of the results.
- You’ll see the percentage of the results.
When you are done, you’ll see the results in the list of results.
You can click on the “Run A/B Test” button.
If you see any results, you can do one of the following:
- You can click on the “View Report” button to see the results in a list.
- You can click “Test my site” to run the test without logging in to the Google account.
If you don’t see anything, you’ll have to click on the “View Report” button.
- The tool will help you monitor your site’s performance in the search results.
- You can see the percentage of the results.
- You will see the average of the results.
- You can see the results in the list of results.
The tool is free.
