Google added a new search feature to its Search Labs named Notes a few weeks ago and Google is already pushing its use by emailing those who created notes some statistics about how many people viewed the notes they added on specific search results.
Glenn Gabe shared the email he received from Google on his Notes that read, “50 people saw your note.” “Your note is helping people find what they’re searching for,” it continued to write. Then there was a button to “see your stats.”
Here is the screenshot of the email he shared on X:
Here is the page I think it took him to:

Glenn wrote, “Email from Google that one of my Notes is getting views. Yep, 52 views… 🙂 I just added another last night from Discover for Barry’s post about HowTo snippets returning. No views for that one yet. Such a weird experiment from Google.”
Maybe people are using notes more?
Dare I say… people are actually posting Notes in the SERPs… I’m seeing more articles with several notes (or more). Some are legit, and some are not… I’m def. surprised to see Notes show up (when they are legit). Let’s see how this goes long-term. 🙂 pic.twitter.com/V0QzWT6zZU
