Data in the dashboard can be easily filtered by account and locations to find the right performance data and see the value that your local pages are driving.

Reporting & Insights Innovations

The Local SEO Report shows a variety of metrics on the performance of your local listings. You can easily track what the average rating is across your location(s) and track the top and bottom keywords in search so that you can pivot your marketing strategy to increase your search visibility.
