Google Search Console (GSC) is a vital, free-of-cost tool offered by Google.
The tool enables you to track basic SEO metrics, such as keywords, traffic, backlinks, searches, total number of clicks, impressions, technical issues, and much more.
If you are already using GSC, you will notice that it only provides basic website-related data without actionable insights.
For a data-driven SEO approach, you need an efficient toolkit like JetOctopus.
JetOctopus is the fastest and most affordable cloud-based SaaS crawler and log analyzer. This crawler has a Google Search Console SEO Insight Extractor tool that identifies and inspects critical issues affecting your website.
It provides hundreds of easy-to-understand visualization charts along with improvement suggestions to help boost your website functionality and online visibility.
Let’s understand how the Google Search Console integration in JetOctopus can help you perform SEO in a scalable way.
#1: Overview Section for a Quick Analysis
The first section of JetOctopus’ GSC module is the overview section.
As the name indicates, this section provides you with a complete overview of the website data.
What differentiates this feature from the normal GSC is its ability to display all the information at a centralized location. Here’s how the overview section looks.
Right from total keywords, clicks, impressions, active pages to the device-based performance of your website, you can access any information on the same page. For that, you need to click on the ‘Overview’ section on the left-hand side and then the required metrics.
For instance, consider the given screenshot of the overview section page. It offers device and country-based insights on SEO.
You can see the platform displaying impressions in a simple and interactive chart format.
If you want to check the CTR rate of the last 30 days, you need to click on the CTR option and set the number of days. This section gives you a quick analysis of your website SEO. You get an overview of the best and the worst-performing factors with a few clicks of a button.
Besides, in the traditional Google Search Console, the download limit of queries is 1,000. But with the JetOctopus’ GSC integration, you can download all queries and their SEO-related information such as CTR, impressions, URL, device, region, and position.
#2: Dynamics Section to Gain Insights on Visibility
The dynamics section of JetOctopus’ GSC module offers insights into the organic visibility and performance of the website.

For this case, the website has a rise of 15 percent queries with a total sum of 5,351. The impressions have an improvement of 11 percent, making it to 69,641.
Similarly, it shows the changes in click rate and position.
Here, you can filter the results by selecting the device and the date. JetOctopus toolkit is descriptive, clear, and simple.
But when it comes to the traditional GSC, the comparative analysis is hard to understand. Have a look at the analysis offered by the traditional Google Search Console.

Besides, this section provides you with insights on various pages. You can gain details such as pages with better and worse organic performance. To further help you understand which pages need improvement, this section has a quick breakdown segmentation for all the pages.

Furthermore, it displays the CTR of these queries in percentage to help you understand the intent of users.

Queries performance counts offer insights on the number of words in queries and their exact CTR value. As you can see in the below-shared image, the query section has several breakdowns to help you gain detailed information on queries. The data-driven information will further allow you to fetch valuable opportunities as you run SEO campaigns.
#4: Cannibalization Section to Create New Strategies

The cannibalization section of JetOctopus’ GSC module allows you to identify such pages. You can furthermore modify these pages by implementing suitable optimization strategies.
Take a look at the cannibalization section. It clearly shows the cannibalized queries, impressions, and clicks on the various website pages.

Winner and loser pages and keywords are decided based on their performance. You can select from a range of data and devices and get a detailed comparison. The deciding metrics include – CTR, clicks, impressions, and positions.
The module allows you to create a customized data table by filtering the data that you can export. You can accumulate and analyze this data to build strategies for boosting the health of pages on your website.
