Hello all,


I was wondering how often the average position for Google Analytics updates? I have apparently a position on one keyword which I am 4.1 however I am no where to be seen in the first 10 pages.

Hi Ash, welcome to the Google Analytics Advertiser Community.
The data you are referring to is not tracked by Google Analytics, it's tracked by Google Search Console (previously called Google Webmaster Tools). It then gets imported from there into the Analytics reports.

Bare in mind, different ppl in different locations etc, will possibly see different search results to what you may see when performing the same search

If you need help or have questions about Search Console, best place to ask is the Webmaster Central help forum!forum/webmasters

Well I've checked Web Master Tools and it shows 4.1 again. However I've checked 15 pages and its not on one of them....
