Google Search Console is now reporting on the performance of content appearing in Google News.
A new report in Google Search Console will help news publishers measure the performance of their content with greater accuracy.
“Today we are launching Google News performance reporting to help news publishers better understand user behavior on Google News on our Android and iOS apps, as well as on news.google.com.”
Site owners can access the new performance report by logging into Search Console and clicking Google News in the navigation menu on the left.
The report is similar to other Search Console reports and includes metrics such as impressions, clicks, and click-through rate (CTR). Data can be segmented by country, devices, and filtered by date.
Search Console’s Google News report can be used to determine how many times a website’s articles have been shown to users in Google News, and how many times those articles have been clicked on.
This report is now active in Search Console for any site that appears in Google News. If you do not see this report for your site it likely means your articles do not frequently appear in Google News.
