Many brands have a Google My Business account already populated with many of their locations. Instead of manually uploading data to the Knowledge Graph, Yext’s new Google My Business Data Sync app will do the work for you and ingest your data from Google My Business.
The GMB Data Sync App provides brands with the ability to install and OAuth temporarily with GMB. With this temporary access token, Yext can quickly and easily pull location data from GMB to create location entities in the Knowledge Graph.
In order to install this app, you will need a Yext account and a Google My Business account. Install the Google My Business Data Sync app today to start building out your Knowledge Graph so you can answer your customers’ questions!
To install, you can select “GMB Data Sync” on the “Add Data Flow” screen in Knowledge Graph, or find the app directly in the Apps tab in your Yext account. You’ll be prompted to OAuth into your Google My Business account and tell us which Location Group you want to sync into Yext.
