Friday again.

Today we have chosen next week’s 2 Page Topics, not based on our weekly results but on what it needed to be explained in order to complete what we’ve written so far.

Other times, as we’ve told you, we have several ideas on our mind and we pick 2 of them based on:

  • Our weekly results.
    • If there is a Topic that has been relatively successful, we ask ourselves Why, and what can we learn from it for Next Week’s Topic.
  • What we’ve found to be poorly explained on Internet.
    • We don’t want to explain again what it is already perfectly explained a thousand times on Google.

 

On the other hand, we have realized that our SEO diary Posts talking about Google Search Console, have had lots of impressions (not a lot of page views; like 5 so far, but at least it seems that people is interested on it).

  • So, today’s Post will talk about it.

 

In case you don’t know, in this section we talk about How we are building this Website: our SEO strategy, Theme and Plugins we use, our Real Results (Pageviews and Users we have)…

 

Being said that, today’s Post will be divided into 2 parts:

1. How often do Google Search Console update the data.

2. Today’s Google Analytics report with our page views and users.

 

Let’s begin:

1. How often do Google Search Console update the data.

As soon as you start a new Website, you suddenly realize that Google Analytics and Google Search Console work in a very different way.

  • We explained the difference between both of them in our “SEO Diary 8th day” Post.

However, while Google Analytics gives your’s yesterday’s results without any delay, Google Search Console may have some days of delay.

Why? We guess that it must be due to the different data that must be processed.

 

Google Analytics tell you (essentially):

  • How many visitors did you have (Users and Page Views).
  • Their country.
  • How much time did they spent on your website.

Google Search Console tells you:

  • What users were looking for when they saw your Website.
    • The Queries.
  • The number of times your different pages have been shown up and in which countries.
  • If there are any errors found.

 

Why is there a delay in Google Search Console data, then?

  • Because it gathers and processes much more information than Google Analytics: Tracking what somebody, in any part of the world, was looking for before seeing your website, not even clicking on it (an impression)… seems almost impossible.
    • On the other hand, Google Analytics “just” focus on who enters in your Website; also very difficult, of course, but it doesn’t require processing that much data.

 

How much delay to expect in Google Search Console data?

 

So far, we have experienced 3 different situations:

1. The first time you upload content to your Website:

  • You’ll have to wait 2 – 3 days before having any data.
    • After these 2 – 3 days, we had some data but it seemed a bit “chaotic”.
      • With 10 impressions one day, zero the next day…
  • You’ll have to wait a whole week before the data is “consistent”.
    • The Queries will make more sense.
    • Your impressions start to be stable .

 

2. Once you are regularly publishing on the “same” Topics.

  • Then, you’ll have a constant delay of 2 days.
  • The impressions are much more stable.
  • All the data gets updated at the same day-time (for us was approximately at 15.30, or 03:00 pm)

 

3. When you publish a completely “New” content.

  • Then we experienced a maximum delay of 5 days.
  • After a week, you’ll reduce this delay to 3 – 4 days.
  • And some days later, you’ll have the “normal” 2 days delay.

 

We experienced this delay with the “SEO Diary” section (this one):

  • The content was absolutely different from the “usual” Business content.
  • As soon as we published the first 2 Posts, we observed that our Google Search Console was not updating the data. Nothing at all.
  • Just 5 days later, we started to see some impressions, clicks

Then, don’t worry if you don’t have the data updated at the exact day time on the Search Console or if suddenly you find out that your delay period increased; Google is processing it, and pretty soon you’ll see the results.

 

Now, let’s move to our results:

2. Today’s Google Analytics report with our page views and users.

Users:

As you may have already seen in the Post’s Top Image (our Google Analytics) yesterday we had 12 users but, since we submitted 2 Pages to Google Search Console (“Cash Flow calculation” and yesterday’s Post), 4 of them were artificially-generated users.

Real Users: 8.

You can see the difference with respect to the previous week on the dotted line:

This week we’ve had few users but much better Session Duration, what makes us really happy.

  • We prefer writing interesting content and having fewer users rather than talking about something completely pointless that could attract much more people.

Pageviews:

As you can appreciate, we’ve had 3 very good days.

Yesterday we had 26 Unique page views. You can’t imagine how excited we are.

  • We know it is nothing wonderful, but for us is a bit step forward, so if you are reading this: thanks for being there!

* However, we must be cautious; as soon as it goes up, it may go down tomorrow, see the picture above… we’ll see what happens next days.

This Website is: 1 month and 28 days old.

We still have a lot of things to do.

Tomorrow, more.
