Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.

    You can now slice and dice your Google Search Console Performance report by news content versus web, image or video content. Google just added a new filter under the performance report "search type" option for "News."
