Go to your Ahrefs Dashboard and click on the “GSC performance” tab to see charts for multiple projects at a time, all right on your dashboard.

Note that you must connect a Google Account that has the Google Search Console (GSC) property verified, and allow access to your Search Console data to see its performance in Ahrefs. If your Google Account isn’t connected, you’ll see a message like this:

From here, just click on “Link Google Account” and follow the instructions to complete the integration.

Once your Google Account is connected, Ahrefs will start to import up to the last 16 months of data if it’s available in GSC.

Benefits of connecting your GSC account

View data beyond 16 months

Instead of only showing you 16 months of historical data like GSC does, we’ll start storing data for as long as your GSC account is connected. So over time, you’ll be able to access more than 16 months’ worth of data.

View multiple GSC performance charts at once

On the GSC performance tab , you can view the data for all GSC verified projects next to each other, like below:

Filter GSC performance based on country, device, and more

On the GSC performance tab, you can change the data displayed in each project's chart based on Search type, Country, Device

This is particularly useful for creating reports with different focuses, and show multiple websites side-by-side.

Analyze your GSC keywords

The report also has many filters to help you narrow down to a specific period of time, keyword, device, and more:

Analyze your GSC Top pages

This can be found via Rank Tracker > GSC > Pages report. This report provides Clicks, Impressions, average Position, and the Top Keyword for each GSC page.

FAQs

If I connect my Google Account to Ahrefs, will other people be able to see my data?

Answer: No. Your GSC data will never be displayed in Ahrefs for anyone besides yourself or the people you give your account access to.

In other words, connecting the Google Account of a specific website will not suddenly improve Ahrefs’ data for that website.

How else will Ahrefs use collected GSC data?

We’ll use GSC data to improve the search volume estimations of keywords in our database. We plan to blend collected GSC data into our existing mix of sources of statistical keyword data without identifying your website.

We hope for this to lead to an overall improvement in our traffic estimations for everybody.
