Overall Satisfaction with Google Search Console

The Google Search Console dashboard provides easy access to crucial reports which identify organic search rankings for specific keywords and pages. It also helps to identify potential problems, such as slow pages, lack of responsive design and broken pages. This is the only truly reliable source of data for performance in Google's organic search - from search impressions to a breakdown of countries where search users come from. This allows a site owner to better optimize their site's content and structure to improve organic rankings, and increase click-thru rates.
  • Easy-to-read graphs and reports
  • Supports multiple sites/domains
  • Free to use
  • Easy to setup (especially in conjunction with Google Analytics)
  • Easily identify best performing pages on a site
  • Doesn't show ALL backlinks to each page - only a selection
  • Mobile usability errors are sometimes inaccurate - giving a false positive
  • Data is delayed by a few days
  • Boosted website traffic by identifying areas for improvement.
  • Track and measure content marketing campaigns.
  • Better understand customer interests by seeing what other keywords they searched for.
  • Improved accountability within the internal marketing team.

This is an essential tool for every website owner/manager. It's crucial to understand your site's performance in Google's organic search, and there's no more reliable source than directly from Google itself. Unlike other competing tools which might use estimates, this data is 100% verified. At the very least, you can keep track of your organic rankings, and then take things to the next level and drill down to identify under-performing pages which could result in a significant boost to your traffic with small, simple changes.

There are few cases where this type of tool isn't useful - such as for managers of internal websites and intranets - anywhere where organic search is not a factor.
