Google sent a boatload of notifications to some of those who have verified properties in the Google Search Console that they can now improve the discovery of their content in the Google Assistant. Google wrote, "Google Assistant helps users find the information they want, including content from publishers across many of Google’s platforms, for example, Search, News, Maps and more. Now we’re making it even easier for users to find content with the Google Assistant’s browsable Actions directory."

Google added:

Specifically, for podcast, recipe, and news publishers who have invested in structured data markup and/or Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), we have presented the ability to find content from such providers as "Actions" (things people can ask the Google Assistant to do), each with its own auto-generated directory page in the Google Assistant’s Actions directory. Languages currently supported can be seen by clicking the claiming button below.

Use our claiming flow to claim and edit (or unpublish) the auto-generated directory page associated with finding content from your site -- including the name, description, logo, and more. Make sure to submit your claim after filling out all of the required fields. If you do nothing, your auto-generated directory page will have the name "Search Engine Roundtable" and will be associated with the ability to find content from http://www.seroundtable.com/.

I did it, and it took about 12 hours to get approved.

Here are the instructions on how to claim the directory page from Google.

Here is a screen shot of that email I got:

Here is the approval email I received around 3am EST this morning:

Now I need to get my content into the Google Assistant - stay tuned!
