Introducing Search Console Insights
“Search Console Insights is a new experience tailored for content creators and publishers and can help them understand how audiences discover their site’s content and what resonates with their audiences. This new experience is powered by data from both Search Console and Google Analytics.”
And while it seems that beta access has been rather limited, some lucky users have been invited via email. Marie Haynes shared on Twitter what the exclusive platform looks like for one of her clients:
I thought this part of the new Search Console Insights (in beta) was really interesting. Shows you which websites referred visitors and how many of them actually saw your content after clicking. pic.twitter.com/vBXger18Rw

New Search Console insights is looking pretty good!
I still call it Google Webmasters, but the new product development has been really impressive.

Helping Creators Understand Their Audience
Google also wrote that this new tool will help publishers and creators alike get answers to important questions, such as:
- Which pieces of your content are performing best?
- How is newer content on your site performing?
- How are users finding your content online?
- Do you have any top or trending queries on Google Search?
- What websites or articles link, or have newly linked, to your content?
