Google Search Console and Google Analytics

Google Search Console and Google Analytics are both powerful tools for SEO provided by Google, but they serve different purposes and provide different insights.

Google Products for SEO

For those of you who are new to web design, digital marketing and these Google products. Here’s a quick breakdown of the main differences between the two:


Google Search Console: It is primarily focused on optimising and monitoring a website’s presence in Google Search results. It provides data and tools to help website owners understand how a site performs in organic search and how it can be improved for better visibility.

Google Analytics: It is a web analytics tool that focuses on tracking and analysing website traffic and user behaviour. It provides detailed insights into visitor demographics, traffic sources, user engagement, conversions, and more.

Data Sources:

Google Search Console: It collects data directly from Google’s search index. It shows information about search queries, impressions, clicks, and the overall performance of a website in Google Search.

Google Analytics: It collects data through a tracking code installed on a website. It tracks and analyses user interactions on the website, including pageviews, sessions, bounce rates, referrals, conversions, and more.


Google Search Console: It helps website owners monitor and optimise their website’s organic search performance. It provides data on search queries, impressions, click-through rates (CTR), and rankings. It also offers tools for submitting sitemaps, identifying and fixing technical issues, managing site links, and viewing backlinks.

Google Analytics: It focuses on measuring and analysing website traffic and user behaviour. It provides insights into visitor demographics, user flow, time on site, conversions, goal tracking, e-commerce data, and more. GA helps website owners understand how users interact with a site and make data-driven decisions to improve it.


Google Search Console: It can be integrated with Google Analytics to access additional data and insights. The integration allows you to view organic search data from Search Console within Google Analytics and analyse it alongside other website metrics.

Google Analytics: It can be integrated with other Google products and third-party tools to enhance its functionality. For example, you can link Google Analytics with Google Ads to track advertising performance.


In summary, Google Search Console focuses on optimising a website’s organic search presence, while Google Analytics provides insights into website traffic and user behaviour. Both tools offer valuable data for website owners, but with different areas of emphasis. Here at Tidy Design we utilise both, but spend more time looking at and reviewing Google Search Console data and trends.
