Statistics based on Yandex.Metrica data

Yandex users can perform various actions related to your business. For example, they can view information about a store on Yandex.Maps and build a route to it, find answers from your experts on Yandex.Q, or subscribe to updates of your collections. Some of these actions can attract potential customers, that is, be targeted.

To track target events, a special Yandex.Metrica tag is automatically created for a business. Yandex services use it to pass information about user interaction with your business to Yandex.Metrica. If businesses are combined into a chain, one tag is created for the entire chain and statistics are collected for all branches.

You can analyze the collected data both in the Yandex Business Directory and in Yandex.Metrica.
