    Hello Vee,

    This is going to be incredibly useful information. I followed your steps and Googe said ‘This report requires Search Console integration to be enabled.’
    I did Property settings, basic settings. Does this mean it is only now going to start collecting the information.

    Hey Patrick, Google starts collecting data from the moment their google code is added to your site. So if it’s recent you need to wait a few days/weeks/months before you see any meaningful reports.
