The Search Console tool is getting updated by Google and now it will come with the ability to provide fresher data for the users in the Search Performance report. Earlier the report in the Search Performance section was atleast a day older and this really prevented the users from getting more updated information from the tool. But now, SEOs and site owners from across the world will be very much happy as they will be able to get access to the same-day date once they log into their Search Console tool. The webmasters had to wait for several days to get data for a particular day and now with the latest update, Google Search Console tool is all set to make a big change in their reporting system. This update is considered to be a great enhancement of the previous report that was provided by the tool.
The SEOs and website owners will be now getting access to fresh and improved data from the Search Performance report and this feature was being requested by the Search Console users since a long time. Here are some of the changes that a fresh data from the Search Console tool can provide to the SEOs.
a) The ability to view the weekend performance of a website on Monday morning, rather than waiting until Wednesday.
b) Check the stats of the website as the first thing in the morning.
c) Opportunity to Check whether the traffic of the website has rebounded after fixing any technical issues.
The webmasters should also make a note of the fact that the that fresh data points will be replaced with final data points within a a few days. So we can expect that the fresh data might change a bit before it is finalized. Another thing that the webmasters need to know about the fresh data update is that it has not been yet supported by the Search Analytics API, and it is also not in the Discover report. But we can hope that both these limitations may be addressed and fixed in the near future.
There are also other important improvements that have been made to the Search Performance in Google Search Console. Apart from returning fresher data to the web site owners, the Search Performance report will enable a more clearer communication of the data timezone, which is indeed the Pacific time zone. The Search Console report also helps you in exporting performance data over a particular time frame of your choice and it makes easy for you to identify and analyze the trends and changes. All these updates are not yet live on your Search Console account and Google is still in the process of rolling it out.
