Help and advice needed - Do you download your Google search term reports into Excel?
I am working on taking an in-house Excel tool made for this purpose and making it into a standalone product.
I would appreciate some feedback from people who regularly use Excel, to analyse their search term report. If you are interested send me a message and I will email you the excel file.

I use Access ... but Excel might work. Depends on your traffic volume. Most folks already have their analytics methods in place.

I download all kinds of reports including search term reports into a csv and then create pivot tables in Excel. I work with a lot of smaller clients. I can imagine bigger accounts would need something else.

Agreed ... it comes down to the amount of data, or whether it is massaging previously massaged reporting.

All depends on what is the desired results. Different strokes and all that happy stuff. :)

Addition: I use raw logs for my more important stuff. I collect the g for comparison. One needs both. (Bing, too, etc)

I download data from Google Ads into excel on an ad hoc basis, and only for one site.

I don't really see any need for a product there - at the moment.
