Confirmed: Google’s New Search Analytics Search Console API Now Available
As expected, Google has officially launched the Search Console Search Analytics API. You can now get your keyword data through this new API.
The Search Analytics API gives webmasters a way to program their tools and reporting directly with the data found in the new Search Analytics report.
The technical documentation for the new API can be found here.
You can query your search traffic data with filters and parameters that you define within the API. The method will return rows of data grouped by the row keys (dimensions), but you must define a date range of one or more days. When date is one of the dimensions, any days without data are omitted from the result list. The results are sorted by click count descending, but when two rows have the same click count, they are sorted in an arbitrary way, Google says.
Google provided the following examples of data you can pull:
- Verify the presence of data (What’s the most recent date you can request?)
- Top 10 queries by click count
- Top 10 pages
- Top 10 queries in India
- Top 10 mobile queries in India
Again, you can access the Search Analytics API over here.
