What you need to know about the New Google Business Profile Performance API in Moz Local

We're excited to announce that new metrics and insights are coming to the Moz Local dashboard. The Moz Local team has been hard at work integrating Google’s new Business Profile (GBP) Performance API which replaces their previous GBP Insights API. More data = more insights for you to understand how your prospects and customers are finding and interacting with your data in Google local search.

In comparison to the old Insights API, the new Business Profile Performance API provides valuable insights on metrics that weren’t tracked before, such as

  • Search keywords: See the keywords that led people to your listings (new keyword tracking ideas!)

  • Bookings: See the number of users who selected the Bookings option

  • Food orders: View the number of users who selected the Food orders option (for restaurants)

  • Conversations: See the number of users who utilized the conversation/chat option

  • Impressions by device: Track the number of business map and search impressions/views differentiated between desktop and mobile devices

The new Business Profile Performance API will provide the same metrics as the old Insights API did, except for the following metrics:

  • Direct, indirect, and chain (branded) queries

  • Local post metrics (for those with social posting in your plan)

  • Local photos metrics

Google is no longer providing these metrics so you won’t see updates to data starting February 20, 2023, on. This will affect the Dashboard and Analytics sections that are partially using this data. You will continue to see historical data on those metrics within the existing graphs and tables. We encourage you to export historical data that is of value to you.

While there is no one-to-one solution to access the metrics that will be deprecated, there are still ways you can approximate those insights.

For volume and types of queries:

With the Google Business Profile Performance API, Google is moving to provide data that is more tangible and actionable. Businesses will be able to see the most commonly used keywords and phrases they get found with. The data is more specific and businesses can segment it by types of searched phrases (such as branded, non-branded, address info, products, etc.).

Historically, the queries that Google reported on with the Insights API were broad metrics and best used to directionally understand how and when your business was displayed to searchers.

Additionally, if you are leveraging an analytics tool such as Google Analytics, you can add tracking parameters to your local URLs in your Google Business Profiles. This way you can capture the search and traffic volumes being driven by them. One of our favorite resources for adding tracking parameters to your listings can be found here.

For Google Post performance metrics:

Google will no longer be providing views or clicks data on Google posts. Businesses can continue to add tracking parameters to the CTA on the post. While this won't report on total views, you'll be able to see engagement from each post on Google to help inform your content strategy.

For photos metrics:

Google will no longer provide insights for photos within GBP. As far as we know, they will continue to rank and display the most popular photos at the top of your profiles. You can always review which photos are displayed first to get an idea of the photos customers are most influenced by. We also recommend adding alt tags to your images to help describe these to search engines and accessibility tools.
