In their blog Google announced this week a new feature of the Google Search Console: Users can now view Google Chrome data under the “Discover” tab.
Currently, Discover is already an important area for users to be up-to-date when it comes to preferred content, especially if they are not looking for something specific. For this purpose, there is already a so-called “Discover Performance Report” to see how one’s own page performs in the “Discover” tab.
Another way for users to use Discover is to open a new tab in Chrome via iOS or Android. This traffic was previously not included in the performance report. From now, Google provides this data bundled in the Google Search Console. This may mean that the traffic will increase in its own Performance Report in the coming months.
Google also announces to use a new referrer for this kind of traffic measurement: Instead of the previous www.googleapis.com/auth/chrome-content-suggestions, the original referrer https://www.google.com/ is to be used so that the referrer matches the one used in the Google App.
