Google Search Console is a web service which allows you, the webmaster, to check indexing status, search queries, crawling errors and various other performance metrics that allow you to monitor organic traffic and optimise the visibility of your website(s).

For example, it lets you see clicks, impressions, page position, and so on of individual pages; shows you the keywords that are bringing the most traffic to your site, country-wise traffic, and many more.

In this tutorial, we’re going to walk you through how to import data from Google Search Console to Google Sheets, fetch them automatically, refresh them periodically, and get them sent to your email or Slack account using our smart, user-friendly Google Sheet add-on Amigo Data that lets you do all these without coding or any knowledge of programming.

Getting started

Before we proceed to learning how to import data from Google Search Console to Google Sheets, you need to install the Amigo Data add-on in your Google Sheets. You can simply grab it from the Google Workspace Marketplace or install it from Google Sheets itself.

Open Google Sheets, click Extensions>Add-ons>Get Add-ons. Search for Amigo Data and click Install.

Once the installation and the set-up are complete, you should see Amigo Data listed in your Extensions tab.

Connecting Google Search Console to Google Sheets

Amigo Data obviates the need to manually set up API key for your Google Search Console, generate access token or fetch API URLs yourself. All you need to do is connect Amigo Data to Google Search Console and import data from Google Search Console to Google Sheets with ease.

Expand the Extensions tab and hover your cursor over Amigo Data and click the Connect option.

Here you’ll see a bunch of sources to pull data from.

Here you should see your property, ie your website, in the Select Domain dropdown menu. If, for some reason, your domain is not displayed, re-try the above step and make sure that the email that you choose has access to Google Search Console.

You have a number of options and data points that can be imported from Google Search Console to Google Sheets. Specify the parameters according to your desired preference: whether you want the query or page data for the current day, the day before, or the current month.

As an example, here’s how we can import the performance metrics data for individual pages for the last two months from Google Search Console to Google Sheets:

  • Select your domain under Select Domain
  • Change Today to Last X. Increase the number to 2 and change Quarter to Month.
  • Under Select Dimensions choose Page
  • Add filter and specify row limit (both optional)
  • Preview to check whether the data to be imported are what you specified
  • Click IMPORT

Setting a refresh schedule and alerts

After successfully importing the data, you might like the data to be refreshed periodically automatically so that you don’t have to import the data each time you want to see the report. You can set the refresh schedule frequency to hourly, daily or weekly and specify the time and the day on which you want the data refreshed according to your need and convenience.
