Introducing the Google News Performance Report

January 12, 2021

Google has announced that it is launching Google News performance reporting in order to help news publishers better understand user behavior on Google News. The report will include metrics like impressions, clicks, and click-through rate (CTR) that will help publishers answer questions like:

  • How many times have my articles appeared to users in Google News?
  • Which articles performed well in Google News?
  • How does user behavior vary by country?

The report will appear for any site that appears in Google News. These insights are in addition to Search Console reports about Google Search, Discover, and the News tab on Search. Learn more about news content appearing in Google News.

The new performance report is now available in Search Console. This report provides detailed information on your website's search performance, including impressions, clicks, and average position.
