Google Search Console Now Send Email Alerts for Spikes in Traffic
Google are alerting users of their search console when there are spikes in search traffic. The email says “your page is trending up” and includes the page’s average daily clicks over the last few days. They also note the percentage increase. Google will also attempt to explain why this increase has occurred.
Google Search console have sent emails like this previously based on weekly data. But they are now sending data from as little as 3 days which allows site owners to capitalise on this increase more quickly.
