Google has introduced the new search console insights Beta for website users who are using Google Search Console and Google Analytics. Let’s check out what Google is offering in this new best search console.
Today, I logged into my website’s search console and found that Google has introduced the new search console insights beta version to the users. Many will ask what happened to the old search console. The old search console is still there, and you can access that old search console and also access the new insights beta version.
So what’s new in this beta version of the search console. According to their first message, you can track your site’s most popular content. Many will think this feature is already provided by the search console. But here you will see more details about your content on the website.
So let’s see how to get started with the new Google Search Console insights beta.
First login to the Google Search Console and when you log in the first time you will see the Google announcement on the top page. They have a link to the search console beta.
This page will redirect to another page where you can access the official beta search console insights page. Just click on open, then you will be redirected to the page where you will find the details.
Another thing is when you click the open button, then they will ask you to join the search console and website analytics so that they can provide you detailed information about your content. Just connect the search console and analytics, then you can see the search console insights beta.
What Things You Can Track Here
- Site overview
Just like the search console, the first thing you will see here is the site’s overview. You will see the past 28 days of overview with total page views and average page view duration. You can hover your mouse cursor and see details of each day’s pageview count.

The one new thing google has placed here and one I like most here is top traffic channels. Here, Google will tell you where your website traffic is coming from. It is not too detailed, but this will help to keep track of progress.
Here they will tell you a percentage of people who are coming from sources like organic search, referral, and direct with a number of page views and duration they stay on site.

Here you will get the details of how many search visitors you get from Google search with a page view count and average duration time and title number of clicks. This is very helpful if you are focusing on organic ranking for the website.

This is where you will get the exact number of visitors who are coming from other websites. Whether someone mentions your website in their site or you are referred to by others.
