Step 1: Go through the authorization process and select the project you want us to collect data from.

The whole process is described here.

Step 2: Add a table to the report.

Step 3: Set the data source to "Project - Positions (p_pos_*)".

Step 4: Set the most important parameters

  • dimension: p_pos_keyword

  • data: p_pos_organic_pos, p_pos_organic_visibility, p_pos_searches

  • sort: p_pos_organic_pos in ascending order

Rename the variables to make the report easier to understand.

Variables that you can use in the table:




Number of searches of a keyword


An estimated amount to be paid for a click on a given keyword in Google Ads.




Domain position on a given keyword in organic search results on Google.


Domain position on a given keyword in organic search results on Google on the day of adding the project.


A change in domain position for a given keyword when compared to the position the previous day.


Etimated monthly traffic from organic search results, determined on the basis of visibility in the week under analysis (TOP3/10/50 keywords and individual positions of the website).


A change in estimated traffic from organic search results when compared to visibility the previous day. It’s also illustrated as a percentage.


The maximal monthly traffic that a domain can generate from the monitored keywords.


The URL visible for the given keyword


Snippets displayed on a given keyword.


Date of update of the position.

_prev - Adding _prev to the variable means that the variable refers to the previous day, e.g. p_pos_organic_pos_prev is a domain position for a given keyword in organic search results in Google on the previous day.

Step 5: Add date range and rename variables.

Adding a date range will allow you to later check the phrase positions in the report for any day.

Step 6: Display the table.

And there you go! You've added a positions table to your report!
