How long do reports take to run?

Mathew Coghlan -


Reports take anywhere between 5 minutes and 30 minutes to generate. Your scheduled reports will take longer because we are running so many reports at once and because we ‘jumble’ up the search terms to make our searches look more natural & ‘human’ to the search engines. So when we’re running your weekly/monthly reports you may see the report take many hours to complete. This is fine and do not worry. Your report will be ready soon!
