Analyze your account’s performance
Everyone knows that metrics are the crux of any social network, but retrieving each piece of data one by one and checking each account to see your performance can get tedious. So, let me tell you that those days are behind you.
With Metricool, you can measure the performance of your profile instantaneously. The tool measures everything that happens with your account so that all you have to do is analyze the results to see whether the strategy you’re following is the right one.
What data does Metricool offer?

Views in both Google Maps and Google Search.
Number of clicks on the buttons you’ve added to your listing: website, phone number, or addresses.
The positive and negative feedback that users leave on your listing, including the star rating and the total number of reviews.
A list of reviews with the name of the user who left it, the message, the date, the rating, and whether it has been answered.
- Photos and Videos:
Data about the media you’ve shared in your Google My Business listing with the number of posts and views.
You also get a list of the photos and videos, with information on the views, date posted, and the type of content.
The posts you’ve added to your Google listing, with the views received and the number of posts.
The list of posts gives you the same information as the previous one: the views, date, and type of content.

Manage your account’s reviews
Reviews are a key part of your business listing in Google My Business. This is where users leave their opinion, which will help you improve your brand or business.

You can do this in Metricool from the InBox section, where you can reply to and manage the reviews you receive.
