Sometimes +Fabian Schorp McSchorpface will try to walk through glass windows with the hope he'll get to the bar faster. In this particular case, as the smudges in the middle of the window show, he failed. Don't let this ruin your day, Fabian! Keep trying!

Ps: taking pictures of smudges is hard

You've asked for it, we've made it!

New in Search Analytics: URLs with Dynamic date range

How does it work?
If you save / share / copy the URL of a report that gives you the "last 7 days" of traffic on your website, it will now respect the real last 7 days every time you paste that URL or click on it, instead of remembering the date when you actually saved / shared / copied that URL.

ex: if I save a URL I created on January 25th, with a "last 7 days" view, and click on it today, it will give me a report on the last 7 days of traffic on my website, relative to today, rather than to January 25th.

Hope you like it, and if you have any feedback, please use the comments!
