SEO Tip: Google Improves Search Console
If you're like me, you're looking for better free data from Google around how your website is doing in Organic Search (aka, where you're ranking on Google).
Specifically, which landing pages on your site are ranking for which specific keywords, phrases (queries), and how many users are clicking through after seeing your ranking.
Speaking from experience, I know this is relevant to any business owner or marketing director as many of them call me saying they're losing sleep and needing visibility into this.
Several years ago, Google Analytics hid this data. Then "Google Webmaster Tools" started to bring it back, and now that Google calls this platform "Search Console," they've started to make some improvements to it.
I've started to look into the new Google Search Console BETA, and here are some clear improvements I found.
1. Easier to find Search Data right off the bat. The new "Performance" tab shows you where you rank and is more robust than before around which landing pages rank for which search terms or queries, and it looks like they're even adding more reporting options as they prepare to launch the full product.
2. Same Sitemap Submission Tools, but better UI Design and Explanation around Errors.
Thanks for reading /watching and have a great day!
