Google Search Console efficiency report provides Math Solvers as search look filter
Google added Math Solvers’ Rich Search Results option as a filter in the search display options for the Google Search Console performance report. Just as you have several dozen options for filtering the performance reports, you can now do so for the structured markup for the exercise / math solver.
The announcement. Google announced this on Twitter, saying, “Following the announcement of the Math Solvers Search Console improvement report a few weeks ago (link below), today we’re adding this rich search result as a search image to the performance report to help you analyze the results . “

This is what practical problems look like. Google explained it as an “interactive feature that tests your knowledge of math, chemistry, and physics subjects right in the search”. Here’s a GIF of it in action:
More details. For more information on how to implement this structured data, see this help document or our original blog post.
What’s new. What is particularly new is that if your website shows Math Solvers rich results, a new search display filter will appear in the Google Search Console performance report to see how well your Math Solvers rich results are in Google – Truncate search.
The Google Search Console performance report shows key metrics about your website’s performance in Google search results: how often it is displayed; average position in search results; Click rate; and any special features (such as rich search results) associated with your results.
Why we care. This gives us more data to see if using Math Solvers markup actually gives our sites more visibility in search. More importantly, the markup and rich search results drive more clicks to our sites.
