Google My Business Update: New ‘Photo’ Views Feature Added

By December 19, 2016 June 26th, 2019 No Comments

There is a new metric, ‘photos’, added into the Google My Business Dashboard. It is added under the insights section. It gives you information about how many times people see your photos. The stats can also be compared to the figures for your competitors.

In other terms, now insights are available for photos too. You can see the performance of your photos against the photos of your competitors.

Access Insights for Photos

Follow these steps to access the newly added insights for photos:

  • Log into your Google My Business account.
  • Choose ‘card view’ to see your locations. The cards icon can be accessed on the top right side.
  • If you have multiple locations, choose the location for which you want to see the Insights.
  • Then click on ‘Insights’ showing on top of the page.

There are two lines representing views for different photos. The blue line is for the views for your own photos. The red line is for the views received by competitor businesses. The report at the bottom will summarise your photos’ performance. It will also provide a percentage of more or less views against your average competitor.
