How to Show the Position Column in the New Search Console

by Radu

I think the most checked out part in Google Search Console is the “Position” report.

In the end, it’s all about “them” rankings, right?

Now, with the new Search Console, things can be confusing, and some of you might not figure out right from the start how to show the Position column like in the old Webmaster Tools version.

I admit that it took me a bit to figure it out as well.

Furthermore, the old version of the Search Analytics Performance report was shut down by Google.

So, like it or not, you’re stuck with the new performance report.

Show the Position Column in Google Search Console

After you’ll find out, it will seem pretty obvious. 🙂

All you have to do is to click the last box, called Average position, in the new Performance report.

Once you click that, it will turn purple and the Position column will appear below.

That’s a Wrap

Hope this post helped you reveal that precious Position column in the new Google Search Console!
