Google Enhances Search Console Video Indexing Report

February 1, 2023

Google has released an update to the Search Console Video Indexing Report, designed to help publishers and content creators gain more comprehensive insights into how their videos are performing in search results. The updated report includes daily video impressions grouped by page, meaning each appearance of the same page in a single search result page or Discover session is counted as one impression, while the Search Performance report groups video search appearances by property - only one impression is counted if multiple pages appear in a search result. Additionally, users will now be able to filter data by sitemap. Google is introducing a new filter feature to the Video Indexing Report in Search Console, helping website owners and content creators focus on the video pages that are most important to them. This new filter allows users to select an individual sitemap and view only video pages related to it, impacting all aspects of the report such as the chart, chart totals, issue list, and exports. This update is part of Google’s ongoing efforts to make it easier for website owners and content creators to understand how their videos are performing in search results. With these insights, website owners can make more informed decisions about their video content and drive better results.
