Multisearch Google Search Console

Google Search Console is not currently tracking clicks or impressions for traffic sent through the new Google multisearch feature. Glenn Gabe confirmed this the other day by running some tests on a few of his client sites (note, you can check out his detailed blog post on this over here).
