The Issues by Priority connector will show a distribution of onsite optimization issues by type (errors / redirects / meta data / etc).

There are two ways of using this connector, which you must choose when selecting a Report Type setting up the data source.

  • Choosing Trend will return a list of the number of issues by type for each crawl date.

  • Choosing Comparison will show the number of issues by type for the most recent crawl, and the amount each has changed since the previous crawl.

If desired, you can create multiple data sources with this connector to use it in both Trend and Comparison modes in the same report.

Our favorite visualizations with this connector

Trend chart

Set the report type parameter to Trend when creating the data source.

Then choose a line chart, then set the Dimension to Date and choose each issue type you'd like to display (e.g. Content Issues or Language issues) as a Metric. Sort by Date ascending.

Issue count callouts

Set the report type parameter to Comparison when creating the data source.

Create a Scorecard with compact numbers and set the Metric to the issue type of your choice (e.g. Content Issues or Language issues).

Issue count change callout

Use this visualization to create the rounded rectangle with the change value in green (if going down) or red (if going up).

Just like above, set the report type parameter to Comparison when creating the data source.

Create a Scorecard with compact numbers and set the Metric to the issue type "Change" of your choice (e.g. Content Issues Change or Language issues Change).

That will give you the data that you want, but it won't look right yet. Click the "Style" tab, and make the following changes:

  • Set the decimal precision to 0

  • Check "Hide Metric Name"

  • Set the label font size to 14px

  • Set the border radius to 40

  • Create conditional formatting rules as follows:
