How to track rankings for a Google My Business Page
With Google's increasing move toward all things local for search, it's critical to track where your clients' Google My Business pages are ranking in Google Local (Google Maps).
Each AgencyAnalytics campaign dashboard offers the ability to track SERPs for an unlimited number of Google My Business pages.
If you don't yet have a Google My Business profile setup, you can create one here.
In order for us to provide accurate Google Local rankings, it is crucial that you connect a Google My Business page to our rank tracker. The instructions below will show you how to do this.
