Position Tracking connector data doesn’t match Semrush data, what's wrong?

Position Tracking connector data doesn’t match Semrush data, what's wrong?

Question

If you find that data in your GDS report doesn’t match the data you see in Semrush, please check the following:

1. Data source settings

- Project and domain name in your report settings should match with project and domain name of your Semrush campaign. For example, if you’ve chosen “Root domain” in the Domain type field, then your domain name shouldn’t include https:// part.

GDS connector parameters

- Check the Local Pack settings. Make sure that the Local pack settings and Business name match in your campaign and in GDS report: 

If you excluded local pack results from your Semrush campaign, you should exclude them from your GDS report too.
If you do follow Local pack results in your Position tracking campaign, do not forget to enter the Business name in the Local pack settings of your GDS report.

2. Date range filters
Check that the date filters inside GDS report and in your campaign are set to the same date range (GDS defaults to Last 28 days (excl today), and PT campaign defaults to last 7 days):
