- The charts and tables can still be complex and confusing. Can your customers look at the screens from Google Analytics, AdWords, and Search Console and understand the importance of the data they are looking at? Probably some can, but many will struggle. You need to simplify the data to address just the issues that your client cares about.
- It is a lot of time-consuming grunt work to build reports through manual cut-and-paste. And even if you do it, you are going to have to do it again next month, and the month after, etc., etc. Wouldn’t it be better to simply set up the report once and have it generated automatically each month?
As you may know, Google has recently upgraded the API it provides for access to Search Console (aka Webmaster Tools) data. This is great news, but is also means that the old API is being discontinued, and we are losing access to some data.
Specifically, we will no longer have access to the links and content keywords data. As a result, Megalytic will no longer be able to provide data for our Links and our Content Keywords widgets.
Starting around October 10th, we will begin migrating all Search Console (aka Webmaster Tools) connections over to the new API. Once your connections are migrated, we will no longer be able to collect data for the Links and Content Keywords widgets. All connections must be migrated by October 20, 2015 when Google will be discontinuing access to the old API.
We recommend that you begin removing any Links and Content Keywords widgets that you are using in your reports ASAP. If you are doing monthly reports, September will be the last full month that you will have data for these widgets. As of October 10th, these widgets will be removed from the Widget Library.
If you have any questions or concerns, please submit a help request and we’ll get in touch ASAP.
