Discover is a popular way for users to stay up-to-date on all their favorite topics, even when they're not searching. To provide publishers and sites visibility into their Discover traffic, we're adding a new report in Google Search Console to share relevant statistics and help answer questions such as:

- Which pieces of content perform well in Discover?
- How does my content perform differently in Discover compared to traditional search results?

Discover is a feature within Google Search that helps users stay up-to-date on all their favorite topics, without needing a query.

It has grown significantly since launching in 2017 and now helps more than 800M monthly active users get inspired and explore new information by surfacing articles, videos, and other content on topics they care most about. Users have the ability to follow topics directly or let Google know if they'd like to see more or less of a specific topic. In addition, Discover isn't limited to what's new. It surfaces the best of the web regardless of publication date, from recipes and human interest stories,
