What To Do When Rank Math Analytics Shows Zero Search Traffic

In this knowledgebase article, we’re going to walk you through how to fix the search traffic zero in Rank Math Analytics.

On some websites, due to the wrong Google Analytics configuration, a domain name is added at the end of each page on that particular site. On importing this Google Analytics data in Rank Math, the imported slugs do not match the page slugs. Hence we delete them, and the users cannot view any Google Analytics data in Rank Math.

Google Analytics records the URLs differently and pushes a page view similar as shown below to your Google Analytics dashboard.
