Custom Report for Webmaster Data CTR, Average Position, Impressions, Clicks

Hi,

 

I could not create a custom report in google analytics to display the data that comes from google webmaster console.

 

I have access to default reports as listed in google analytics, however in custom reports I cannot select the metrics "CTR, average position, impressions" etc.

 

I would like to combine this data with custom dimensions we have created (page types).

 

Is there a way to create these reports?

 

Thank you in advance,

Andrej

Google Search Console has a separate API, and the data is not available in GA custom reports. You can try using Data Studio to report from both sources.

Hi Mike, thanks for your suggestion. I have tried this, however google data studio does not allow for tables or graphs to combine data from 2 different data sources: https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Data-Studio/how-do-you-merge-multiple-Data-Source-s-into-o...

 

Did you get this to work? If yes, do you maybe have link for instructions? Thanks alot in advance Smiley Happy

Sorry, no - haven't tried it in Data Studio - I had just noticed the announcement about the new data source recently. There are a variety of third party tools you might try, but I don't know how many of them allow you to link data between sources [other than my own, but you'd need to want to work in Excel; Analytics Edge].
