We recently updated the Top Search Queries data to take into account the average top position, we enabled programmatic download and we made sure you could still get all the queries that drive traffic to your site. Well, now it’s time to give you more search queries data!
First, and most important, you can now see up to 90 days of historical data. If you click on the date picker in the top right of Search queries, you can go back three months instead of the previous 35 days.
Finally, now we are collecting data for the top 2000 queries for which your site gets clicks. You may see less than 2000 if we didn’t record any click for a particular query in a given day, or if your query data is spread out among many countries or languages. For example, a search query for “flowers” in Google Canada is counted separately from a query for “flowers” in Google US. Nevertheless, with this change 98% of sites will have complete coverage. Let us know what you think. We hope the new data will be useful.
