The first feature that was launched in the beta version of Google Search Console was the performance report. Now that whole search console is officially replaced with a newer version recently; Google announced a tweaked feature that lets you gather new performance report from the search console. It allows you to export the report within a customized date range.
According to Google, “the new performance report is as recent as a day old”, which is excellent news as compared to the previous report, which used to be updated within 3 days. We also checked a few data and also, the screenshot shared by Google shows that it was updated 6 hours ago. The time of the latest performance report can be seen on the top right corner when you log in to Google search console like it’s shown below.
The updated report matches with Pacific Time Zone (UTC -8:00) to provide clear communication about the data when you wish to see and compare it with your time zone or like to integrate with Google Analytics.
For now, the search console API and discover reports still doesn’t support the fresher data update. Thus, the properties having Discover performance reports eligibility cannot see the fresh date in their overview report. However, it is believed that Google is working on it update it sooner.
I guess Google overheard talks of SEO professionals to explore the performance data through various timeframes. Hence, Google gave it a green signal from today. You can now pick the ‘dates’ in the table and explore the data in search console or export it on to your system.
