Last July we launched a new report in Search Console to help you
understand the performance of your videos on Google and identify possible areas of improvement. Today, we are happy to share
a few more updates to the report on Search Console to help you achieve those goals more effectively.
Video impressions overlay
To make it easier to understand the performance of your videos, you can now see in the
Video indexing report
the number of daily video impressions over time. The impressions are aggregated by page which means that if
the same page appears multiple times in a single search result page (or a single Discover session), then we consider
each appearance as an impression.
The Search performance report groups video search appearances by property, not by URL, which means that if multiple
pages show in a search results, we’ll count only one impression. As a result, the Search performance report can
show lower impression counts than the Video page indexing report.
To help you focus on the video pages that matter most to you, you can now filter the Video indexing report to show only
video pages that are present in a selected sitemap. The filter applies to all the report features: the chart, chart
totals, issue list, and exports.
We hope these additions will help even more when monitoring and fixing how your videos perform on Search. If you have any
questions or concerns, please reach out to us via the
Google Search Central Community
or on Twitter.
