A column chart will start to build with a column and a value. Values should be numeric, as they'll be plotted on a chart. Columns are often categories. To get started building a column chart, follow these easy steps:
First, give the column chart a descriptive name. Something that will remind you of the data and intent.
After naming the column chart, start by configuring a column.
The field in the column configuration will represent categories on the x-axis of the column chart.
After adding one or more columns, add a value next.
Add a field to the value configuration by dragging it in. Ensure that the aggregate function (i.e. sum, max, min, average, etc.) is correct.
If you want a grouped column chart, you can add multiple fields to the value configuration. Otherwise, move to filter configuration.
As a final step, you can filter out unwanted data to focus in the column chart on the most important and accurate information.
Once you've finished configuring filters, you can publish the chart to embed it or share a png of the result.
Here is an example of some Google Search Console Data exported to Google Sheets and embedded as a basic column chart in this post.
