Linking Analytics and Google my Business

I created a Google Analytics account for our website, prior to setting up a GMB page. How do I add that analytic account to my GMB page now?

 

It keeps wanting me to create a new one, but don't want to.

Hi :-)

Are you using the same google account login for the GA account and the GMB Listing?
and
Does the website url provided to the GMB Listing match exactly the website property url in GA?


It’s important that the website you provide on your Google My Business listing exactly matches the one in your Analytics property. For example, if your Analytics property gives you ownership rights to www.example.com/blog, but you’ve listed www.example.com as your primary website on Google My Business listing, we won’t be able to match your Analytics property with your listing.

This was really helpful!

 

I have a client who used different gmail accounts for her Google My Business page and her Google Analytics account for her website. The url does match in the GMB listing with the the website property url. Is that O.K.? Or not? Should I have her change the gmail address for her Google My Business page?

Hi @karen c :-)

I would not change the email address for the GMB page, I would add the GMB page email address to the analytics account as another user with all permissions so it also has administrative access

Actually, I did just that. Then we deleted the original email address. It
all worked!

I agree. I get worried unless I'm doing it myself with the client sitting
next to me. We verified carefully. By the way, I greatly appreciated your
quick responses. Love this community!
