Google Data Studio Now Brings In Google Discover & Google News Data From Search Console

Google announced that now the Search Console connector for Google Data Studio can now bring in traffic data for Google Discover and Google News. This means you can do more mashing up of your data, directly in Google Data Studio specifically with those two new traffic sources.

Here is what the data connector looks like to add Google Discover and Google News to Google Data Studio:

When you connect those pieces, you can then report on that data in Google Data Studio.

Daniel Waisberg and friends from Google delivered a templated report we can use for this and here is what it looks like to have Google Discover and Google News in the report. As you can see, you can toggle to show Discover or News traffic here:

Daniel said these are the three reasons you want to use this template:

(1) Monitoring performance. Quickly discover a change in the data, for example monitoring URL clicks and click-through rate (CTR) for important pages on your site.

(2) Data exploration. Uncover insights from data, for example analyzing search performance patterns across different countries, devices, or website sections.

(3) Informing the world. Publishing interesting trends and patterns, for example sharing aggregate data segmented by industry.

Daniel then did a deep dive on how to mash up these reports and understand what they are all about, so read it fully.

Most SEOs Believe Google’s November Core & Reviews Updates Will Complete In December

Published

Google Robot Waiting By Computer

The Google November 2023 core update and Google November 2023 reviews update are still both rolling out, and we have no estimated time of when they will finish rolling out. Both are well past their estimated two-week rollout period. I ran a poll yesterday asking SEOs when they think it will be done, and most said in December and not in the next few days left of November.

The poll had just under 600 votes in 24-hours and 79% said the update will be completed in December and 21% said in the last days remaining in November. I posted the poll on X – here it is:

Personally, I thought it would be done by now and I still think it will be done in the next day or so – but I am wrong a lot. 🙂

I do hope it is done today so they can roll out the Christmas holiday update (kidding…).

Update: I’ll have a story tomorrow but at least one of the updates is done in November:

Google Search Console Was Down Today

Published

Google Robot Hurt Tired

Google Search Console seems to be down right now. If you try to access it, you will get a 500 server error. I suspect Search Console will be back up shortly but right now, if it is down for you, you are not alone.

Update: At 8:52 am ET Google Search Console is back, the tool was offline for about 50 minutes.

Google’s Daniel Waisberg is 100% aware of the issue. He responded to some posts about the issue, saying, “we’re working on it.” John Mueller from Google is also reposting Daniel’s posts on X.

Here is what it looked like when you tried to access it while it was down:

Gsc 500 Error Down

Search Console went down at about 8 am ET and returned at 8:52 am ET.

Here are the posts on X from Daniel Waisberg of Google on this issue:

Who knows, maybe we will have a new Search Console feature when it returns?

Here are some of the complaints:

Update: At 8:52 am ET Google Search Console is back, the tool was offline for about 50 minutes.

Google Testing New Flight Prices Rich Result?

Published

Woman Booking Flight Airport Google Logo

Google may be testing a new type of rich result for flight prices. This test shows a section under the flight search snippet that contains the dates, trip details and price.

This was spotted by Antoine Eripret who was able to trigger this numerous times, over numerous days, while in Spain. Here is his screenshot he posted on X:

Google Flight Prices Rich Result Test

He also posted this video of this in action for me:

Google Flight Prices Rich Result Test

Recently Google told us not to put flight prices in titles because those prices change too quickly. Maybe Google is testing updating those prices in more real time through the use of structured data and is thus more confident to show them as rich results and not title elements?

I don’t think Google officially supports flight schema but maybe they will soon?
