Search Engine Roundtable shares that a website’s performance in the Google Discover feed is coming to the Google Search Console insights, as well as other new reports.

Webmasters JR Oakes, Barry Schwartz, and Olivier Perbet have found out that if you enter the URL /search-console/performance/discover, you’ll see this notification:

The page is not available now. It looks like Google is testing new metrics, but it’s still not clear whether they are coming to the GSC or not.

Besides, webmaster JR Oakes has discovered signs of other updates in the Search Console’s code that might be already running. There are several reports including:

  • Load speed;
  • AMP-pages;
  • Child-directed content;
  • Several types of Structured Data cards: Courses, Events, Recipes, How-tos, FAQ, Q/A, Local Businesses, Breadcrumbs, Jobs.

Moreover, GSC might get an option to remove a website from the Shopping, Flights, Hotels, and Local Business sections.

SEO–expert commentary:

«With Google Discover, users see relevant articles and publications generated for previously used keywords. This section displays in the Google mobile app, and soon may come to the desktop version.

The Google Discover insights will be handy for analyzing content performance in this section. The collections are generated based on high-volume keywords (for example, «avengers»), so getting in the top-10 for such keywords can bring significant traffic to the website».
