Google offers free connectors for most of its data source, but Google My Business is left all alone. The good news is that there are other options allowing you to connect to Data Studio, this is great if you manage multiple locations. Having a dashboard for this can compare multiple locations showing the total views, phone calls, and direction request. The visual organization of this data can help find new opportunities for growth or ideas on where to make changes.
There are many ways to organize this data into a functional and helpful format if you need some guidance on how to do this take a look at our post for tracking multiple GMB locations. We use Supermetrics as the connector and in this post, we’re going to show you the other options as well.
