I am having trouble figuring out how to use the new aspects of the Google Search Console Connector. I would love it if you could give me step by step tutorial of how to split CTR or other metrics by SERP position and build CTR curves,

Check the performance of a specific group of pages, e.g. everything under “/blog/”, and Analyze long-tail search queries with the new # of words in search query dimension. 

Please let me know!

  • Hi Josie,

    Check out our blog post about the new features of the Google Search Console, which covers some of what you asked about:


    We should also have template available for Sheets - open the template gallery and look under Google Analytics for the "Traffic Source Report" template.

    If you still have questions after reading that about what to do, please let us know.

    -Thank you

  • This answer was not helpful.  Can we get a step by step to reproduce the CTR curves on this page:  https://supermetrics.com/blog/improvements-google-search-console

  • I second that - it's been several months since you released the article but no 'how to' actually do it yet? 

  • Hi All,

    I forwarded the feedback to the blog team to see if we can get additional instructions added to the post to clarify how this was done.

    -Thank you

  • Hi All,

    Here's an example query that can reproduce the CTR graph in the blog post:

    Then I just used a standard line chart on the resulting data to create something like what is shown (that probably is a smooth line chart in the blog post):

    For the "Long-tail search queries", it's functionally the same query as above but swapping branded/non-branded for "# of words in search query" dimension:

    And if you want to check a specific group of pages you can either filter on the Full URL for that part, or the directory level that contains that. For example, if looking for "blog", then I can check which directory level that is at:

    In our case that is at level 1, so I can filter for that:

    Now I only get blog stuff:

    IMPORTANT - for this to work the directory must in end in "/". So https://supermetrics.com/blog is treated as root but https://supermetrics.com/blog/ is directory level 1. So if that is not working right, check your site mappings, you may need to reconfigure to add the "/" character to the end.

    I hope that covers everyones questions.

    -Thank you
