The only thing more powerful than being able to improve a businesses presence on Google search is being able to demonstrate that those results impact the business positively and generate revenue.

Simplifying your reporting to focus exclusively on metrics like actions and impressions from Google Business Profiles insights will improve channel clarity and drive more trust from your team, clients, and other stakeholders in your business.

Through Map Labs, you can roll up and see archived insights from Google Business Profiles with ease. This is a powerful tool for measuring your business's real-world visibility on search. Track impressions, actions, and other key metrics over long periods of time (think of it like Google Analytics for Business Profiles).

Among many other uses, you can tap into these insights to validate if your keyword ranking improvements are delivering more customers to your business locations. Nearly all businesses would benefit from an increase in phone calls, website visits, and direction requests. Seeing those changes over time is easy with Map Labs.


Discovery Search Impressions Are the New Ranking Report​

Tracking changes in metrics like ‘discovery’ impressions will give you a new perspective on how your listing management strategy is performing on search. Search impressions represent not only improvements in search rankings but also movements within the market.

With Map Labs, you can access a detailed archive of your Google Business Profile insights over long periods of time. Start with 18 months after you sign up and the database will continue to build from there so you can see 24, 36, and 48+ months of insights data at once. Aggregate this data across multiple listings to see the impacts across all of your listings.

Measuring and evaluating the ratio of direct vs discovery impressions can also give you insight into the intention of users who see your profile on Search and Maps.

Business profiles with a significantly higher proportion of discovery impressions, when compared to direct, represent a very potent customer acquisition channel. This would suggest that you should create content for Google Business Profiles that entices and attracts first-time buyers to purchase from your business.

Business profiles with a more balanced ratio of direct vs discovery impressions show opportunity for both acquisition and communication to existing and repeat customers. Use a hybrid approach with your content that is designed to entice and excite as well as educate and reinforce your business offerings.


Map Labs also provides comparison reports, which makes it easy to quickly build a view of performance on search across all Google Business Profile Insights:
