Changes to your Insights data

Business Profile Performance reporting is moving closer to your profile on Search and Maps. You’ll be able to access more of the core profile metrics directly from your Business Profile. We start with interactions to let you know how often people have contacted you. More metrics will follow over the next months and will include detailed reports about searches and the number of people who saw the profile.

After metrics are added to Performance reporting, the older versions of those metrics will eventually be removed from the Google My Business web and app platforms.

Performance reporting is currently available on Search and will soon be available on Maps.

Data will be available for up to 6 months. You’ll be able to review your performance by selecting custom time frames, with interaction metrics updated daily and other metrics updated monthly.

Refocused reporting on the Business Profile

Important: We can’t provide timelines for any individual change before it takes place. We’ll update this article as changes take place. Updates can include:

  • New metric update frequency: We may update how often a metric is calculated (for example, updating the data at the end of the month).
  • Addition of new metrics: The metrics provided in Performance reporting will evolve over the coming months to include new data that has never appeared on the Google My Business Insights page.
  • Unchanged metrics: Certain metrics will move to Performance reporting without significant changes. 

The table below will announce upcoming changes to the metrics or new metrics we’ll introduce to Performance reporting.
