Guide: Using Google Search Console with Databox


How to connect Google Search Console to Databox


How to connect Google Search Console to Databox

To connect a Google Search Console Account in Databox, go to  Data Manager > + New connection. Type Google Search Console in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. 

If you have multiple properties (websites) in Google Search Console, you will be prompted to select a specific property to connect. Each property must be added as a separate Data Source in Databox. 

What's the maximum amount of historical data initially available when you use a new Google Search Console Metric to Databox?

When you connect a new Google Search Console Data Source in Databox, the maximum amount of historical data available is 36 months. Data is synced for the Metrics that are being used in your Account, so when you first use a new Google Search Console Metric, the maximum amount of historical data available is 36 months.

Certain Metrics may have more or less historical data available. For more information about the amount of historical data available for a specific Metric, please contact our Support Team at [email protected]

Pro Tip: Once your Google Search Console Data Source is connected and actively syncing data, we store the data that's collected in our own database. This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical Google Search Console data in your Databox reports. Learn more here
    The amount of historical data you're able to access in Databox is dependent on your Databox plan. Learn more here

What time zone is Google Search Console data synced in?

Google Search Console data is synced in UTC time zone. 

How to access pre-built Google Search Console Templates

 Navigate to Databoards > Public Templates
 In the Data Source drop-down list, select Google Search Console
 To view a preview of the Template populated with dummy data, click Preview
 To pull the Template into your Account and re-populate it with your own Google Search Console data, click Use Template
 Select the appropriate Google Search Console Data Source from the drop-down list to complete the process. The Databoard will be re-populated with data from the selected Google Search Console Account and can be found on the  Databoards page
Pro Tip: Once the Databoard is available on the Databoards page, it is completely disconnected from the public Template. Therefore, you can further customize this Databoard to meet your specific needs using the Designer.
