“Search queries focus on the terms that your customers used to find your business on Local Search and Maps.”

Users can view search queries used within the last 7 and 28 days.

Google intends to roll this out to all users, however, it is not quite there yet. Some are able to see search queries data in the Insights tab while others are not.

The company is working on getting this feature out to everyone, and will alert users when it’s fully rolled out.
