Google May Share Your Google Discover Likes With Publishers


You know how you can like the Google Discover stories Google puts in your Google home page feed by clicking on the heart icon? Well, did you know that Google may share those likes with publishers, anonymously?

Valentin Pletzer noted on Twitter that Google added a line at some point to this Google Discover help document that reads “Important: Only you can view the stories you like, but your selections may be shared anonymously with publishers.”

So while you can view what you have liked in regards to your Google Discover articles over here, Google may also share what you like, anonymously, with that publisher.

I am not sure where publishers would see those likes? Maybe in the Google Publisher Center? Maybe in Google Search Console somewhere? I am not sure?

Google Search Console Says Sites Using Subscribe with Google May See Increase In Impressions & Clicks

Google Search Console Says Sites Using Subscribe with Google May See Increase In Impressions & Clicks

Google added a new annotation to the Google Search Console performance reports on December 5th, saying that sites that use Subscribe with Google may see an increase in clicks and impressions.

I’ll be honest, I am a bit confused by the annotation was added this week and not in 2018 when the feature was added. Google wrote, “Google created an additional search result feature for sites that use Subscribe with Google. As a result, these websites may see an increase in impressions and clicks in the Search Performance report.”

It makes it sound like Google just created this feature but it was launched in 2018 as a way for publishers to get more subscribers to their publication.

Here is what it looks like:

Subscribe with Google is a service provided by Google which lets you buy a subscription (or make a one-time or recurring contribution) on participating websites, manage your subscriptions, and access premium features using your Google Account. Here is the help document on this.

I suspect that Google Search Console is now tracking the Subscribe with Google sites a bit differently and maybe more accurately.
