Has anyone had luck with getting tracking parameters into URLs on any part of their listing? Action links, posts, main site links? I've tried adding them to the action links but haven't seen any hits yet and I'm not sure if it's because Apple isn't displaying the action links yet or because they're scraping them out.
I have a problem with that too. In addition, Apple put all my profiles under one company, so I'm looking for a way to separate and transfer them.
If you find such a way, please let me know
I've already started using it. We'll see how it works and what statistics it will bring.
Has anyone found a way to move one location between companies?
Update: I've been in two back to back webinars today and got two different answers to this question! In the first webinar, hosted by a major local listings platform, they said that UTMs cannot be used and are stripped out of any data sent over via the API. In the second, hosted by BrightLocal, they said that UTMs can be added to Apple Maps but didn't specify whether that was only if you added them manually or if it's done via API. I can verify that manually adding them works. I added a set to one location and they are presently reflecting on the live listing.
Really curious which is true, or if it's both - you can add them manually but not upload them via API. Has anyone tested sending UTMs to Apple via an API connection?
Looks like Apple is adding a lot of new features to compete with GBP. Story compliments of Barry "Rustybrick" Schwarts.
