Google webmaster tools (GWT) query results date

  1. A GWT (search query) google sheet report returns data fine. (query provided below)
  2. However, I'm confused by the values in the date field for the returned records for a 'last90' period (default choice, no other available date ranges).
  3. For a query run today, for 1,000 returned results, i only see around 3 unique date values and those are for dates:
  • 2017-05-05
  • 2017-05-06
  • 2017-05-07

Is this just a quirk with the data provided by GWT?  If you use the GWT web interface you can view the data by query by day...

  • Hi jaywilner,

    The date value amount depends on how many search queries there are per day and the maximum number of rows.

    Supermetrics shows all results or first [max # of rows] rows of the results if there's more than [max # of rows] of results.

    In this case, those three date values are the first three dates of last 90 days which means there are over 300 search queries per day.

    So you can see the rest of the date values by increasing the maximum number of rows.

    In addition to the 'last90' period, there should be also other date range options.

    Best Regards,
