Google Search Console Now Allows Complete Information Downloads From Reports

Everyday is Groundhog Day in the world of Google, as it would seem that not a day goes by without some kind of change or update – both welcome and not-so-much – coming from the search engine giant. This time, the change is very much welcomed, as Google has made some pretty significant improvements to data exporting capabilities within Google Search Console. According to a recent blog post announcement from Google, going forward, instead of just specific table views, you will actually now be able to download complete data sets in almost all Search Console reports. https://twitter.com/googlewmc/status/1232650809982308352 So, not only will you have more data available to download, but you will have the ability to access and export better data as well. “We believe that this data will be much easier to read outside SC and store it for your future reference (if needed),” said Google.

Changes to Enhancement Reports

When exporting data from an enhancement report, in addition to the list of issues and their affected pages, you’ll also be able to see a daily breakdown of your pages, their status, and impressions. And if you are exporting data from a specific drill-down view, you’ll be able to see details describing this view in the exported file. If you choose Google Sheets or Excel for exporting data, you’ll get a spreadsheet with two tabs, and if you choose to download as csv, you’ll get a zip file with two csv files. For reference, here’s a sample AMP report provided by Google:   AMP data export from Google Search Console Source: Google

Performance Report Improvements

Improvements were also made to Performance data. This includes: [su_list icon=”icon: chevron-right” icon_color=”41bf60″]

  • The ability to download the content of all tabs with one click. This allows you to obtain data on Queries, Pages, Countries, Devices, Search appearances, and Dates all together.
  • The addition of an extra tab or csv file called “Filters.” This shows which filters were applied when the data was exported.
