Google Search Console Ranking shows the individual keywords driving organic traffic to your site, along with the number of clicks, impressions and CTR for each keyword. This can be extremely valuable since this data cannot be provided by analytics or other SEO tools.

This report is essentially the same as the Search Performance report available in the Google Search Console interface, but includes a number of additional benefits:

  • View and export up to 50,000 keywords per site (Google Search Console only shows up to 1,000 keywords per site)

  • If the keyword is already tracking for this campaign, you'll see the ranking position Dragon Metrics collected directly next to the position reported by Google Search Console.

The data is updated in real-time, so you always have the most up-to-date data available. Keywords tracked in Google Search Console Ranking do not count towards Keyword Credits, so you can track 50,000 keywords per campaign with no additional limits.
