    Sure, click-through rate from search engines is a good metric to track, but which pages on your website actually drive the highest CTR?

    And yes––clicks from Google are great. But, which queries are actually driving those clicks?

    Aggregate data is helpful, but we know you need to dig deeper to really understand what’s working and what needs optimizing.

    If you’re using Google Search Console with Databox, now you can dig deeper into your metrics using Query Builder.

    By using fine-tuned data filtering, you can dig deeper into your data and create custom metrics that provide the insights that you need. 

    This is what our new Google Search Console Query Builder for Databox offers you.

    Now, you can create Custom Metrics for:

    1. Impressions
    2. Clicks
    3. CTR
    4. Average Position
    5. Number of Queries on Position
    6. Number of Queries on Position Group

    And, filter those custom metrics by the following dimensions:

    1. Country
    2. Device
    3. Page
    4. Query
    5. Search Appearance

    You can also pull data using an additional layer of filtering by Google Search results types, including Image, News, Video, and Web.

    This flexibility enables you to get far more focused results when it comes to exploring and presenting Google Search Console data in Databox metrics and dashboards.
