Search Console Performance Report

Search Console

The Performance report shows important metrics about how your site performs in Google Search results: how often it comes up; average position in search results; click through rate; and any special features (such as rich results) associated with your results.

Depending on which tabs you select, the chart shows total clicks, total impressions, average CTR (click through rate), and average position. You can group and filter your data by many dimensions.

Queries

Represents the query strings that users searched for on Google. Only searches that returned your site are shown.

Review the Query list for expected keywords. If keywords that you expect to see don't appear, your site might not have enough useful content relevant to those keywords.

Find queries with high impressions and low CTR. These queries can help identify where you can improve your titles and snippets to match your users’ interests.

Find branded or not-branded query totals. You might want to see how many queries show your site when the user does or doesn't include a specific string, such as a brand name.

Pages

The final URL linked by a Search result after any skip redirects.

Countries

The country where the search came from.

Devices

The type of device on which the user is searching: desktop, tablet, or mobile. If you have separate properties for your different device types (for example m.example.com for mobile and example.com for desktop), you might not be able to compare metrics unless you use a Domain property.

Search Type

The type of Google search run by the user: web search (the default), image search, video search, and so on.

For a given URL, all click, impression, and position data is stored separately for each search type. So, for instance, an image can appear in both web results and image results, but the click, impression, and position data for that image are recorded separately for web searches and image searches.
