Google Releases Google My Business Agency Dashboard

Yesterday, Google released the Google My Business Agency Dashboard. It was a much-wanted update for many GMB managers. Some of the changes will greatly increase productivity and efficiency for users.

To set up the agency dashboard, follow this link. It’s important to note that you’ll need to provide your agency website and use a Google account that’s associated with your company email.

If you create an agency account, here is what you have to look forward to:

  • The Agency Dashboard now allows you to manage your locations under one account. Previously Google capped the locations at 100.
  • The addition of Location Groups clusters organizations together. Once you have created a Location Group, you have the ability to give management access to the whole group instead of having to add access permissions to each individual listing.
  • Sending and accepting management invitations is easier. You can also see the invitation status, such as knowing if the management invitation is accepted or not.
  • A new search function allows you to quickly find a location within the account or a location group.

Google is always trying to improve so it will be interesting to see how people take to the Agency Dashboard. If you give it a try, let us know your thoughts!
