Google Search Console
Google search console is a web service by Google which enables users to check indexing status, optimize website visibility, measure site’s search traffic and performance.
Sprinkle now supports Google Search Console as a data source. On clicking the "+sign" a list of data sources appears. In this case, Google Search Console is selected. A new Google Search Console data source is named and created.
To create a connection, the user needs to click on “Connect to Google” which leads to a sign in page. Next, the users need to sign in to their Google Search Console account.
Post login, users will be prompted to allow permissions required for sprinkle to read data further. Once a user provides consent by clicking on ‘Allow’, the connection can be created from Sprinkle.
Next, in the datasets tab, users need to name and select the report type from the drop down fields list that needs to be ingested. Site, Site Maps and Search Analytics. On Selecting Site Maps, the user needs to provide a valid site URL.
On Selecting Search Analytics, the user needs to provide a valid site URL followed by selecting the dimension. Search Appearance dimension should be queried alone whereas other dimensions can be queried together. Start date needs to be provided i.e. the date from which the data needs to be pulled and ingested. Search type can be opted between Web, Images and Videos.
In the Ingestion Jobs tab, the concurrency (number of tables that can run in parallel, a maximum of 7) can be set preferentially before running the job. The status of the job will be updated in the tab below once it’s complete. The jobs can also be set to run automatically by enabling autorun.
