I'm trying to download a CSV or Excel with my 251 locations insights. How should I have to do it?

Thanks for your help,

Hi Manuel,

Admittedly I don't work much with GMB Locations, but I'm pretty tuned in and I don't believe there is a way to download that data.

My reply here will bump this back to the top where others may see it and possibly someone else has an idea.

Thanks Linda,

Probably this option will be accessible some day and Google engineers will give us a beautiful present.
By the way, Is there anybody around playing with Google My Business API and having any solution for that?
I'd appreciate it a lot, and for sure will consider buying it, as I need to do and excel with these data every month for 251 locations.
Thanks

Hi @Manuel P

 

@Linda Buquet is correct, there is no option available at the moment.

 

We have mentioned this when the new API was discussed with program managers, so hopefully they took it on board and we should get a nice present somewhere in 2016.

 

It is currently becoming the bane of my month end when I sit and scrape the insights data

Thanks @Tim Capper for your answer.

Does anyone know about an external tool we can use for this task? In other Google+ forum told me about using a scraper like Mozenda...

Not that I know of, perhaps someone else has an idea.

 

I ctrl + a, then ctrl + c and paste to spreadsheet

Hello,


Thanks for starting this thread. We are a mutli-location company and scraping this data on a monthly basis would take a solid day or two or three. 

 

Not something we are willing to invest in currently.

 

We tried using a few scraping tools such as Import.io, but had trouble with the page authentication. Instead of allowing us to scrape data it would not let us access the page and wanted us to login. We also looked at a Chrome extension called Scraper, which wanted us to use Xpath to find the data in the insights code. Also not a doable option as we are not Google programmers.

 

Google opening up this feature would be very cool!!

If any one finds an external tool to achieve this please share!!!!

2016 has come and gone.  Anyone hear any news on getting something like this?

This would be a great feature to add to the Google My Business API to help simplify operations for multi-unit teams. Does anyone have an update on if/when this might become an available feature?
