Google Search Console is a fantastic tool where you can get an overview of how your site is performing in Google search. The console has a lot of handy tools, allowing you to track useful metrics for your SEO campaign. This includes asking Google to (re)evaluate your errors and seeing how Google sees pages and URLs on your site.
There is also a section in the console named Performance report overview. The report used to show how your site had been performing over the 28 days. This allowed you to analyse data over the last month. However, there have been requests for the time range to be extended. This request has now been granted as the report now shows data from the past 90 days. Although this is just a small change, it offers marketers and SEOs more useful data about the performance of their website.
If you have Discover data available on your Search Console account, we are making a small tweak to the Performance report: we’re changing the default time range of the Discover and Search bars to 90 full days.

Why can’t I see the Discover report in Search Console?
If you are unable to see the Discover report in your Search Console, it is likely your site is not receiving enough clicks and/or impressions from the feed. The Discover feed only appears on mobile devices and is tailored to a user’s search and browsing activity. As long as your content has been indexed, there is a chance it can appear in the Discover feed. Although no special tags or structured data is needed to appear in the feed, to increase the chance of appearing, you should:
- Post interesting content
- Use high-quality images
- Ensure your site is mobile-friendly
