Are You in the News?

Last Update: January 14, 2021

Just a quick post to let you know that a new feature has been added to Google Search Console. You can now check if your site has appeared in a news search, as opposed to the previous options, which are web search, image search, and video search.

When in Search Console, click Performance on the left-hand side, and change the setting at the top of the screen from Web to News.

Hi Diane,

Thanks for sharing about this new feature.

Care to explain why knowing if my material has been posted in a news search is information important for me to know?

I am sure that Google created this as a way to help us marketers: but how?

Curiously waiting -- LOL

Hi - if your content has been featured in the news, then it is clearly a trending current topic and you may wish to capitalise on this while it is "hot" and write further content on the subject.
