    Hi there, Google My Business users 👋

    Today, we’re happy to announce our new integration with Google My Business, allowing you to track and visualize the volume of searches your business receives by source, listing, or type of action as well as your overall search presence alongside all of the other KPIs that are important to your business.

    At launch, there are 20 default Google My Business metrics available. This means that there are 20 pre-built visualizations for some of the most popular metrics available in Google My Business.

    There are also 3 calculated metrics available, too. These are custom metrics that are commonly created by Google My Business users that we’ve created using Data Calculations. These are also pre-built, meaning all you need to do is drag-and-drop them into your dashboard to visualize your performance.

    No code or design necessary.

    Also, in addition to having the ability to quickly drag-and-drop your most important Google My Business metrics, you can just as easily customize your dashboards to include data from other integrations that your business relies on, too.

    I’ll show you how to do all of that below.

    First, let me show you how to quickly get started via a pre-built Google My Business template.

    Getting started with a Google My Business template

    Want a quick way to monitor your overall search presence from Google My Business?

    First, download this Google My Business Insights template.

    Next, you’ll be prompted to connect your Google My Business account.

    Then, voila! Watch as your dashboard automatically populates.

    How to create custom dashboards with Google My Business

    In the dashboard designer, search for the Google My Business integration on the left side menu.

    From there, you’ll be prompted to connect your Google My Business account.

    Now, you’ll see a menu consisting of 20 default Google My Business metrics as well as 3 calculated metrics (these are custom metrics commonly used by Google My Business users that were created using Data Calculations) available to drag-and-drop directly into your dashboard.

    Drag-and-drop the desired metric anywhere you’d like in your dashboard. You can resize these Datablocks or even rearrange them once you’ve added more.

    Then, your Google My Business data will automatically populate.

    Now, if you’d like to add KPIs from other tools into this dashboard in order to create a comprehensive view of marketing and sales, simply click back into the left side menu to search for the desired integrations you’d like to pull from.
