Segmenting referral spam display in GMB

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆
# 1

We are an SMB agency primarily focusing in the Home Service sector, and we are using the GMB home page to conduct our monthly client reviews until we finishing building out our own dashboard. I created a segmented view to remove the spam, and I was looking for a way to get that segment in the GMB homepage rather than all traffic. 

 

Can I show a segmented view of GA data in GMB? If not, can I show a filtered view of GA data in GMB? 

 

I could not find anything in the GMB forum, so I figured to give this a shot. 

 

Thanks! 

 

Tim

Segments are applied to Reports, they don't stay applied to a View, they are not 'sticky'.
The only way to keep segments applied to a report is via analytics report shortcuts so as to remember the settings.

Hi Tim :-)
You should be able to show a filtered View, as it allows you to select a View if there is more than one.
Bare in mind, filters will only work going forward from the time they are applied to a View (they wont remove
past data)
