Measure Search Network keyword performance
Review your keywords' performance to see which ones are helping you meet your advertising goals for your campaigns that target the Google Search Network. To do so, you can view and download your keyword performance from a specific time period, or customise your Google Ads statistics table to track how your keywords are performing by match type. You can also run a keyword diagnosis to review your keyword Quality Score.
How to view and download your keyword performance
- Sign in to your Google Ads account.

Make sure that your statistics table contains the date range, columns, filters and segments that you'd like to include in your report. Segments that you've applied to the data in the table show up in your report as columns. Learn how to create a customised view of your data.
Due to the large amount of information that must be collected to create the reports, complete data for a given day is not available until 3.00 p.m. PT the following day.
