    Just launched - New Improved Google+ Dashboard

    Just got email from Jade - Google today just launched an improved dashboard for Google+ users.


    Quick Highlights:
    - easier management of data across pages
    - local pages have dashboard integration with AdWords Express and Offers
    - local pages have Insights

    Jade will be announcing the following in the Google and your Business Forum.
    Edited to add: it's posted now - here.

    Today, we are announcing a new dashboard in Google+ for all pages managed in Google+, including local business/place category pages.

    It will give business owners using Google+ to manage local pages one place to easily manage the pages, share, and access other tools like AdWords Express and Offers. Local Google+ page managers will also have access to improved page insights.

    Google+ users, find the new dashboard simply by logging into plus.google.com and switching to the page you’re managing.

    Please note -- if you are using Google Places for Business, please continue to do so. New users who are interested in appearing on Google Maps should also start at places.google.com. This announcement only affects business owners who are already using Google+ to manage pages.
    Here is the official Google Announcement:

    Google+ Dashboard - making it easier to manage your online presence

    Today millions of businesses use Google+ to connect with their customers in meaningful ways. Many of these businesses also use AdWords to promote their products; Maps to update store info; and YouTube to publish high-quality video content (to name a few). We want to make it easier to manage your online presence - all across Google - so today we're getting started with Google+ Dashboard. After signing in to your Google+ page, you'll now have access to the following Dashboard features:

    1) The ability to update your info (like website URLs, store hours and phone numbers) across Maps, Search and Google+ - all from the Overview tab.

    2) One place to monitor your Google+ notifications, assign page managers, share photos and videos - even start a Hangout with followers.

    Local businesses will also enjoy:

    3) At-a-glance access to their AdWords Express and Offers campaigns.

    4) Insights that include top searches for their business, top locations requesting driving directions, and performance data for their Google+ posts.

    To start using Google+ Dashboard, simply sign in to Google+ as your page, then click the "Dashboard" icon in the navigation menu. We've got lots more useful tools to add from all across Google, so stay tuned for more updates!
    I have not even taken time to check it out. Wanted to share with you guys right away.

    If anyone has time, log in and take screen shots of anything noteworthy.

    Re: Just launched - New Improved Google+ Dashboard

    OK just logged in - here's a quick peek.

    DISCLAIMER - I have a weird set up. I'd already built posts and circles on my personal G+ profile so I don't use this page at all. Therefore hardly any circles or activity because everything is on my other page.

    Here is one of the G+ dashboard screenshots Googler Pavni Diwanji shared with metrics that look like they'll be very useful for measuring engagement.

    Re: Just launched - New Improved Google+ Dashboard

    I have added some additional shots that will give you an idea of the traffic information available to you and your clients, if you have them.

    This one is small but it gives a good overview of the new look.



    This shot shows the options of views (formerly impressions).



    This is the filter for actions.



    Glad to see they are beginning to give us more data for evaluation! This is just a small tip. You may have noticed that Google is also suggesting certain things to do on your page. Ooo and what is this?? It seems as if G is now giving suggestions on things to do that will improve your traffic!?

    G+ overview dashboard

    Just curious if anyone has seen the G+ overview dashboard yet? It's nice to finally have everything on one page. Any thoughts on this feature yet?

    Re: Just launched - New Improved Google+ Dashboard

    No worries Alex, we appreciate it. I'd much rather have someone post another, than not post at all assuming it was already covered.

    But I liked your screenshot and it adds to the topic, so I merged threads instead of deleting...
    and it's all good!

    Thanks for posting!
