Heat map for Yelp Ads

For advertisers, a new heatmap in the Yelp Ads performance dashboard gives you more insight into the locations that consumers were exploring when Yelp delivered your ad. The map reflects the area a user was searching or the location of a business the user was viewing when Yelp delivered your ad. If your ad is appearing for consumers browsing in areas you don’t want to reach, you can adjust your location targeting right from the dashboard.

This map feature is available today in the Yelp Ads dashboard for many local and franchisee advertisers, with plans to roll it out for more advertisers in the new year. Log in to view the dashboard (if it’s currently available for you), or read more about the new map in our Support Center.
