Google improves performance reports with Search Console's fresher data update

These changes are crucial to webmasters, site owners and our clients. Now, Google is giving us more data to allow us to do the following:

  • Better assess Search and Discover traffic.
  • Use content data to assess top and trending search queries for websites.
  • Drill down into what makes up a site's audience - countries, devices, and more.
