In this article, you will learn the most common issues that can occur when running a Domain Content Planner query.
Since Surfer relies on the connection with your Google Search Console in such queries, the possible failure reasons are most likely related to issues with data fetching.
Restricted access to the domain.
a) Domain not verified within Google Search Console
Please check if you have that domain/page verified correctly in the Google Search Console. You might have it added but not verified yet, and therefore we can’t access any data.
Learn more about verifying your domain in the Search Console.
b) Not enough permissions given
There are several levels of access you can set within the Google Search Console. For the integration to run on Surfer, you need to have the highest level of ownership so we can fetch the data for you.
Learn more about owners, permissions, and users in the Search Console.
No data from Google Search Console.
a) New domains
If your domain is new, it could be that the Google Search Console does not have any data for it yet.
b) Wrong country selected
If you’ve chosen a location you don’t have any visits from while running the query, Surfer won’t get any data from your Search Console, and therefore we won’t be able to set up the Content Planner.
3. Not enough data from Google Search Console
If your domain is new or you’re just starting to get visitors from a specific location, it could be that we’re able to fetch the data, but it’s not sufficient to provide you with clusters.
Should you still experience any problems, we highly recommend disconnecting your Google Search Console from Surfer and then connecting it again. Sometimes, the simplest turn-off-turn-on can work wonders!
