Build a Data Report

To begin using the exporter, you'll start by building your data report. You may choose to start with a Customizable Template or Create your report from scratch. Both options allow you to choose the parameters of your data report, including the report type, website domains, desired metrics and geo and date filters.

  1. To begin, select Create a report from scratch.  

  2. Select a Report Type. There are several report types to choose from. Select the report that aligns with your needs and workflow. 

    For example, if you're looking for website traffic data, select the "Traffic and Engagement" report type. If you're interested in Keywords data, select the "Keywords" or "Site Keywords" report type.


Select a report type

  1. Provide input: Based on the report type selected, you'll be prompted to provide inputs on which the analysis will be conducted.  (Ie. website domains, apps, or keywords.) Information can be entered manually or uploaded via CSV file. 

    For website domains, select whether to include subdomains in your report (You can also change your selection at the checkout stage).

    Important: The CSV should list domain-names in only one column to ensure data is pulled properly. You can check your report in real-time using the preview window on the right.

  2. Set filters: Select the relevant countries, granularity and timeframe to apply for your report. Note that the filter setting will vary depending on the report type.
