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.

Google Local SAB Search Ranking Bug Fix Rolling Out

A couple of weeks ago we reported on a possible Google local search ranking update that turned out to not be an update but rather a bug. Well, that bug seems to be fixed or being fixed now and rankings are beginning to return for these local service area businesses.

The bug seemed to start being fixed on Friday, September 23rd, in the afternoon.

Local SEO, Jason Brown wrote in the Local Search Forum “Good news, one of my clients got their rankings back. They are back in the map pack, but not in the same number one spot as before.” He also said later “My other client is back ranking again too. Looks like the fix is being rolled out now.”

He shared this chart showing how all the rankings returned:

Joy Hawkins also posted about it on Twitter:

So hopefully this is now fully resolved – at least this specific bug? It may have been related to the Kansas Google local bug.
