Track your Google My Business listings in the Map Pack.
You can monitor all your digital assets in Nozzle – not just your domain – so you can see where you stack up against the competition for your local customers.
The first thing to do is set up a Brand that has your Google My Business listing as one of its Brand Properties.
(If you have already set this up, skip this first part.)
Starting from the Keyword Manager page, click on the Brands tab.
- Select an existing Brand (In this case, select an “Owned” brand.)
- Click +Google My Business under Add Common Properties.
- Enter your Google My Business ID (CID) in the field. (If you need help finding that number, check out this help article.)
- Click Save Brand.
If you are creating a new Brand instead of using an existing one, you can get a comprehensive look at how to add Brands to your project in this article.
Now, with your Google My Business profile added to your brand, you can start getting into the data.
On the Performance Overview page, select Brand Property in the Rollup. Then select the property you created to track your Google My Business listings.
This will show you a list of your local rankings.
If you appear in the Map Pack, Nozzle shows two numbers in the Rankings column.
The first number (after a colorful dot) tells you where you are actually ranking in the column, the second number (after a gray dot) shows you where you are ranking in a local pack.
The number following the gray dot is referred to as the Item Rank in Nozzle.
So, if you had something that looks like this:
It means the Map Pack is ranking in the number one spot, and your company ranks first of the three possible spots in the pack.
One like this, on the other hand:
Means that you still rank at the top of the Map Pack, but the Pack is further down the SERP and appears in the third spot, below a couple organic rankings or other features.
Now you know how to pull out the data related to your Google My Business efforts so you can see how you are doing in the local scene.
