Search Console Insights uses both Search Console and Google Analytics data in one view

After being under the radar for a couple of months, Google has confirmed the new Google Search Console Insights. Search Console Insights is a new view of your data specifically “tailored for content creators and publishers,” Google said. It can help content creators understand how audiences discover their site’s content and what resonates with their audiences.

Search Console Insights uses both Search Console and Google Analytics data in one view. Google announced the beta today on Twitter, saying, “Today we’re starting to roll out a new experience to beta testers: Search Console Insights. It’s a way to provide content creators with the data they need to make informed decisions and improve their content.”

 

Access Search Console Insights. If you’re participating in the closed beta, you can access Google Search Console Insights for some of the profiles you manage in Google Search Console at https://search.google.com/search-console/insights/about. There, you can learn more about this reporting tool and click on Open Search Console Insights to potentially access the report.

What it looks like. Here is a screenshot provided by Google:

What Search Console Insights tells you. Google said Search Console Insights can help content creators and publishers answer questions about their site’s content, such as:

  1. What are your best performing pieces of content?
  2. How are your new pieces of content performing?
  3. How do people discover your content across the web?
  4. What are your site’s top and trending queries on Google Search?
  5. What other sites and articles link to your site’s content and did you get any new links?

Can’t access Search Console Insights? If you do not have access to Google Search Console Insights, do not worry. It is still in beta and even though Google has publicly announced it, it is not yet available to everyone.

“It is a closed beta that is currently only available to a group of users that have already received an official email from us for a specific site. We hope to open it for more users and to allow the beta group users to add more sites to it over time — stay tuned for more news and updates about this in the future,” Google said.

Why we care. As we said before, “Having certain Google Analytics data in Search Console can offer a big convenience and also help you see your data in new ways.” This Search Console Insights dashboard gives you more views of your content performance since it now blends both Google Analytics and Google Search Console data into one.

Google is now sending out newish, not 100% new, alerts for changes in your top queries for your site. This is an email from Google Search Console that will show you either large increases or decreases in your ranking positions according to Google Search Console data.

The emails read with the subject line "change in top queries for your site." Then it says "Search Console has identified a recent change in the top queries leading to your site from Google Search. We thought that you might be interested to know these changes. Here is how some of your top queries performed in the week of." It then lists out the example queries and how it changed.

This is not 100% new, Google sent out alerts via Search Console for changes in clicks and impressions. This is a variation of that.

Here are more screenshots of this:

Google announced that they will now begin automatically verifying some users in Google Search Console, which will open up access to Google Search Console to countless (I don't even know the figure, hundreds of thousands, millions?) of webmasters, site owners and more. In short, if you are a verified owner of a Google Analytics property, Google will automatically verify you for that same website in the Search Console.

This is very big news, probably not for most of you, since you all are on top of making sure the right people have access to Google Search Console. But this is very big news, in general, to get more people to access to Google Search Console. As I said at Search Engine Land "those with Google Search Console access will get emails and notifications of issues in their inboxes. These messages can include manual actions, hacks, WordPress and other CMS upgrade alerts, as well as other notifications - all aimed at helping you keep your website healthy, indexed and ranking." Yea, I quoted myself - sue me. But it is important, this opens up super important notifications and reports to many people who had no idea this tool existed.

 

Everyone knows about Google Analytics, it is a given. But Google Search Console - not so much. I know many SEOs who have been telling Google to auto-verify people this way and Google has finally done it. You no longer need to manually go and verify your site in Search Console, Google will do it automatically if you are the site owner in Google Analytics!

This is what it looks like when you get notified of being automatically verified. Sergei Ivanov posted on Twitter some screenshots.

This is the notification telling the site owner they are now verified because of the collaboration with Google Analytics:

Here is the notification in Google Search Console of this:
