Monthly performance numbers:
- Web clicks: How many people clicked a link to your site in the general search results tab in Google Search. See more click details for your site on the Performance report.

- Pages with first impressions: Pages that were seen by a user in Search Results for the first time last month. (This may be omitted for very large sites.)
Top growing pages and Top performing pages: Which pages on your site are growing the fastest (by absolute value, not by percentage change ), and which have the highest number of clicks. These values are "month over month" changes (how this month compared to the previous month).
