Why do our data have a 4-day delay?

The data on your Foudroyer dashboard has a 4-day delay. The APIs from various search engines only provide reliable and finalized data 3 to 4 days after processing.

As you can see in the following screenshot, the Google Search Console mentions that the data is subject to changes.

At Foudroyer, we have chosen to select the most reliable data to avoid a deceptive effect in the following days. Therefore, we wait for 4 days for the final data to be provided.

This behavior applies to both Google's API and that of Yandex and Bing.
