In April 2020, Google added data from Google Discover to Google Search Console. It supplements the popular Performance report, displaying data specific to Google Discover. As the world of search continues to change, this can help shape strategies for brands and SEOs alike.
What is Google Discover?
Accessing Discover data in Search Console
Search Console display the traffic percentage from normal search and Discover. This particular website receives 30% of their search traffic from Google Discover. That’s a metric that could be very useful moving forward, especially if that percentage increases. For many websites this will offer a useful snapshot at traffic distribution.
You can then click through to the report itself:
The report functions in much the same way as the Performance Report. It displays clicks, impressions, average CTR along with other metrics. The main difference is the removal of certain tabs. The devices tab is missing because it is a mobile specific metric, which makes sense. In a similar vein, the queries tab has been omitted. After all, Google Discover works without the need for the user to search.
