Get Intel from Google My Business

How do people find your business online? The Insights section of your Google My Business listing offers data that can tell that story.

Insights gives you a look at how people find your business on Google search and maps. It also tells you what they do once they find you. There is a summary on your Google My Business dashboard and five reports that provide more detail.

Of course, none of this is available to you if you have not taken steps to claim and complete your listing. Do that now!
