We’ll cover one helpful tidbit that most people don’t realize exists that can be truly helpful when it comes to evaluating your traffic or deciding what content creation needs to happen next.
What Is Google Search Console?
Google Search Console (otherwise referenced as GSC) provides you with critical data about your website’s traffic performance and any technical items that may need to be addressed. But what many don’t know is that it can actually show you the keywords people are searching that bring them to your website! Google Analytics (another extremely valuable tool) will tell you how many people visited your website from organic searches, but GSC will provide you with some really helpful information about what actual queries people searched to find you.
So, How Do I Find These Keywords?
Fret not — we’ll show you where exactly you need to go to find these search queries. Keep in mind, Google’s products evolve quickly so the steps that are outlined below are subject to change over time.
