In this overview, we’ll explain how to understand the results and use the Reputation Manager Enhanced Overview. To discover what this area of the tool can do for you, check out this handy guide.
1. Getting Started
You do not need to create or set up the ‘Reputation Manager Enhanced Overview’ page. Once you've added a Reputation Manager report to your BrightLocal account, you will see the data all in one place when you click ‘Reputation Manager’ in the top menu (shown below within the red box).
2. General Overview
On the overview page, your list of ‘Monitor Reviews’ reports is shown. Here, it highlights all the important factors of each report in a series of columns, which include:
- Total and recent reviews count
- Top sources
- Recent rating change
- Average rating
This lets you see a useful report summary at a glance. Each column can be filtered, you can create new reports from this page, and you are also able to view or delete existing reports.
Here, we’ll explain what each column shows, and how to use this information.
Report: This shows the report name with the location name underneath, allowing you to easily and quickly spot which location it is. The two arrows at the top allow you to change to alphabetical order, if desired.
Report run: The date that the report was last run, and the schedule are both shown here, so you can easily see if anything is set to the wrong schedule. The two arrows at the top allow you to change the order to the most recent.
Reviews: This shows the number of total reviews, and you can change the order from highest to lowest by clicking on the two arrows at the top.
Recent: This shows reviews that have been left within the last 30 days. Simply change the order from highest to lowest by using the top two arrows.
Top Sources: The top five sources of reviews for this location are displayed here. Grayed-out icons mean that the review site has been filtered out in the Filter settings.
Avg. Rating: All the combined reviews have been used to calculate an overall average rating, which is shown here. The two arrows at the top allow you to change the order from low to high.
Rating Change: This shows whether there has been any change in average star rating between the last two report runs. Update the order from highest to lowest by clicking the two arrows at the top.
NPS: The feedback score from the most recent Get Reviews campaign run. Find out more about NPS score by clicking here.
Actions: Here you can click ‘View’ to see the report, or the dropdown to ‘Edit’ or ‘Delete’ the report.
You can apply filtering to these variables, which lets you view specific data that might be of particular interest.
Click the ‘Filter’ dropdown button, and a box will appear with various checkboxes.
As you scroll within this dropdown box, you'll see a section for each filtering option.
Rating Change: Here, you can filter to only view locations that have seen an average star rating change between the last two report runs — you also have the option for ‘No change’ if you are not focused on this for your filtering.
Average Rating: Choose the range of average star ratings that you’d like to filter the locations by.
Total number of reviews: If you need to see a certain amount of reviews, you can input this figure here to see a selective view.
Once you are happy with the selected filtering, simply click the green ‘Apply Filters’ button (shown below within the red box) to see the results on the Reputation Manager Enhanced Overview page.
Please note: The filter only applies to the locations listed on the page — no data will change based on filtering.
