You need to type in client ID and client secret and register license key to use Query Viewer.
What is client ID and client secret
Query Viewer accesses Google Search Console data through Google Search Console API. They are authentication info to use the API. Procedure to give permission allowing Query Viewer use the API is very lengthy. Please see this page for detail.
Enter client ID and client secret into next dialog. (Select Option/License menu item.)
There are 2 types of license key. Trial one which you can create with Query Viewer and official one you can purchase.
- Trial one has limited functions but never expires.
- Official one has no limited functions but expires after subscription period.
- License key is tied to language. For example, Japanese license key can't be used for English version of Query Viewer.
Official license key costs 12 dollars + sales tax and valid for one year. Price may be changed when you renew your subscription but you will never be asked to pay additional fee for updating app.
Try Query Viewer
To try Query Viewer, use trial license. Click "Register Trial License Key" button to create and register trial license key with client ID embedded.
License key is extremely long text and hash of client ID is embedded and encrypted. This makes license key private for one client ID. Thus, stealing or sharing someone's license key will never work.
Hashed client ID embedded into license key can't be restored, it is mathematically impossible. Also client secret is not tied to license key. So we can't see your private info by receiving your license key and send updated one back to you when you purchase official license.
Closing dialog makes app start accessing Google Search Console data. You may be asked to login Google account and then agree to give access right to Query Viewer.
You may see error screen that tells you it could not establish access to somewhere. But please simply ignore that.
Limited functions for trial license
Trial license has limited functions. After running Query Viewer and show query result few times, most of key words are masked with block character. Retrieving Google Search Console data is performed normally so you may know suitable key words are shown, and Query Viewer is working as you expect.
