With a July 21 tweet, Google announced that it has a new search type filter: News.  

Publishers can now analyze traffic coming from the News tab on Google Search, the tweet says. It says users can learn more about filtering data on Performance reports.

The company then sent out an email on the matter, says Search Engine Roundtable. “We’ve recently added new data to the Performance report in Search Console: Google Search’s News tab data. This data shows clicks, impressions, and click-through rate for any links seen in the ‘News’ tab in Google Search results,” the email said. “To access this data in the report, click the ‘Search type: Web’ filter on the top of the report, then select ‘News.’”
