If you want to learn how to export Google Search Console data into Google Sheets, this is the guide for you.

Google Search Console provides a comprehensive view of your website’s on-page optimization and SEO performance. While GSC does a fair job at visualizing data, it can’t quite match the flexibility of Google Sheets.

Countless businesses use Google Sheets to create tailor-made, interactive dashboards that turn advanced data into digestible insights.

You can create interactive pivot tables and charts and apply custom formulas to highlight numbers that matter in just a few clicks.

However, it’s difficult to import GSC data into Google Sheets. Most users have to copy-and-paste GSC data into their Google spreadsheets. But there are a number of more efficient methods out there.

Let’s explore the top ways to import data from Google Search Console into Google Sheets, using examples and step-by-step walkthroughs.

2. Manual Export from Google Search Console

If you need a one-off data export, Google Search Console’s built-in exportation tool is a viable option. Here’s how.

First, log in to your Google Search Console dashboard and open the report you need to export.

Once you find it, click Full report in the upper-right corner of the data card.

Log in to your Google Search Console dashboard and open the report you need to export

On the report page, click Export in the top-right corner. Select Google Sheets, and the data will be exported in a snap.

On the report page, click Export in the top-right corner. Select Google Sheets, and the data will be exported in a snap.

This is an acceptable method for a one-time export. However, the data won’t update automatically, so it will quickly go stale.

Additionally, new data won’t be consolidated into previously generated Google Sheets. If you need to share reports with colleagues, you’ll need to send them a new Google Sheets link whenever you have new data.

3. Downloadable CSVs

You can also download a CSV from Google Search Console, and upload the data to Google Sheets.

However, this method is highly manual, and not realistic for anything more than a one-time import.

To download a CSV report, log in to Google Search Console and open the required report page. Click on Full report from the Overview page or select the report from the main menu.
