I was wondering how people were tracking their GMB posts within GA...or if they even are?

Hey Nathan,

 

If you are referring to links that bring visitors to your site; you'll want to use utm parameters AKA as custom campaigns.

 

More on that here:

Then you'll see this in your source medium reports and under campaigns.

 

Best,

Hey Nathan,

 

Any links controlled by you from GMB or anywhere else online or off (pdfs, vanity urls, etc.) should incorporate utm params.

 

Hope that helps.

I know they "should" but the results I've noticed that have GMB Posts have not, thus the question @Theo Bennett
