Local Viking is a comprehensive GMB management tool.
If you’re a larger team that needs access to the dashboard we have an unlimited amount of sub users that you can link them up and assign your team to different locations as administrators based on location or geotags. The base plan comes with 10 listings that you can manage for yourself or your clients.
Connecting your GMB Listings to Local Viking:
Local Viking communicates with GMB’s via an API key. You’ll also notice towards the bottom of the locations screen that there is a connected RSS feed to your GMB posts. That enables you to syndicate your GMB posts to every channel. Every Local Viking account comes with the RSS feed as a standard. If you have multiple locations for the same business, you can use the ‘multi locations’ function to mass upload images to these GMBs. Or, you can use the multi location posts functionality in the same way.
Keywords Section of Local Viking
Every GMB attached to the Local Viking platform has 2 types of keyword tracking APIs. The first type of rank tracking is your traditional single integer being generated for a keyword.
The second type of keyword tracking is GeoGrid. This is enabled based on a location level, which you can actually schedule out.
Local Viking Google Insights
If you’ve used the google my business insights dashboard, you know there are restrictions when looking at the data coming in. Local Viking pulls up to 18 months of data which is similar to analytics. This functionality allows you to splice data into two different time chunks and compare your progress. This is an excellent feature for agencies and agency owners to include in their reporting.
Location Content Calendar
This is the ideal tool within Local Viking for scheduling and tracking content being produced on your GMBs. Both images and GMB posts will show up in this interactive calendar.
Edit Tab of Local Viking
This tab allows you to obviously edit your GMB attributes but you’ll be able to do it from the interface, through to the live GMB. This is absolutely crucial for SEO’s and agency owners. As we know, the GMB world is volatile and causes suspensions to take place on accounts. Through Local Viking, you’ll be able to safely make changes on the platform and avoid being suspended for them.
What’s unique to the Edit Tab portion of Local Viking is the ‘lock’ mechanism. Here, it allows us to freeze the attribute in place. That means competitors can’t come in and change anything and notify you if there are changes made.
GMB Profile Photos With Local Viking
If you head over to the Single Photo Tab on the dash, you can upload profile photos to your GMB. This saves on a lot of time, especially if you’re an agency owner with multiple clients in multiple city locations. When you upload a photo, you can select what category you want your photo to be placed in. The Exif tab in Local Viking allows you to edit the meta data directly on the platform. Coordinates (long and latt) are also integrated and embedded automatically from the same platform.
Reviews and Q&A section of Local Viking
All of the reviews that come through your GMB’s can be attended to and responding to them all takes place on the dashboard in one place. For business owners, this is great because you can upload your own CSV file of questions/answers that are being asked and it will feature them. Again, you can do all of this from a single dashboard in Local Viking.
Getting Notifications With Local Viking
This section allows you, or any of your sub-users to be notified by email and/or SMS if anything is changed on your GMB listings.
When Local Viking was first created and launched, we were a posting platform for GMB. We evolved from there. You have 3 different posts types. The standard, event, or offer post types. Specific attributes for these post types are highlighted in light grey. This platform also natively supports spyntax. If you have a free Google My Business website, these posts will be featured on your website as well. The multi-locations post function allows you to syndicate posts out to different locations that you own after you categorize them with their own tags.
GeoGrid Feature of Local Viking
The GeoGrid pulls the local algorithm to show you rankings in relation to a location on the maps. This is a great prospecting tool for agency owners as it’s very visually descriptive. You can choose the distance between different points as well. For every Local Viking account, you get a set amount of GeoGrid credits, no matter which account or pricing you choose.
Reporting Functionality with Local Viking
This platform has full-white label reporting. Only pro accounts and above have access to customizing the reports for white-label uses. In the reporting tab, you can create a report on a pre-set schedule that will be sent out to your clients. You can select which insights to include in the report. For agencies particularly, default settings are selected where you can omit any settings that generate a 0 in the insights or decrease.
