GMB Insights API Data?

[ Edited ]

We are an agency with over 50 accounts that we manage.

 

With the latest Insights dashboard, creating reports for out clients is next to impossible. Sure we can paste the data into excel and go from there, but that is counter intuitive. 

 

Are there any plans to allow API access to the Insights data on Local pages?

Hi @Ben Fisher,

 

Access to insights for local businesses is not currently supported by the Google My Business API. We’ll announce new functionalities of the API as they become available on both this forum and the Google Developers site. Please stay tuned for updates and thank you for your patience!

 

Thanks,

Terry

Terry, can you share a timeline on getting this into the API? OR, is there a way to automatically export out GMB Insights? Thanks.

Hi @Auto N,

 

We don’t have a timeline for adding the functionality to view Insights for your business listings via the Google My Business API. You can download/export your business information but not including business insights in a bulk upload spreadsheet.

 

We’ll announce new functionalities of the API as they become available on both this board and the Google Developers site. Please stay tuned for updates and thank you for your patience.

 

Thanks,

Terry

 So glad I'm not the only one desperately waiting for this API functionality. I tweeted GMB several months ago to see if they had plans to make this available soon... all I heard back was crickets.

Yes it is! We've been moving pretty quickly to now pull that data into our reporting dashboards. This is a huge step in the right direction for local SEO
