Hi @Lydia T

 

Insights are to be taken with a little pinch of salt. Some of my pages flat lined around the 19th June.

 

If the listing is visible, then your images are visible. I did a few searches and your business page is showing.

 

I think it may be a normal glitch in insights

My flat lined in August this year? Does it get fixed? I do find it useful as a comparison to my competitors. Cheers, Cath

Hello Catherine, Yes eventually (maybe a week) it went back to normal. Insights need to be taken with a grain of salt. Just as @Tim Capper said in his response. Everything was working normally, just did not show that way.

Hi @Lydia T @Catherine F

 

Happened to me also, photo stats flat lined all of a sudden on the 15th of Sept, but only came back more than 2 weeks later, on the 3rd of Oct....why is this?

 

Not good dependable stats then?

Any real technical reason for this @Tim Capper?

Agreed - any technical reason? If to be taken as a grain of salt, then not that helpful so why have it as a stat at all? We need these things to be dependable as we actually use the information @Tim Capper

Hi @Catherine F

 

I agree, but it is not analytics that is attached to a website it involves massive amounts of data from multiple sources and searches.

 

If you look at your websites Google search console, which also provides info from search results, you will also notice inaccuracies as well as data refresh points regularly.

 

The only way you will get near perfect info is traffic and calls to your website, thats if you are using utm tracking codes and call tracking for tel numbers.
