LinkedIn Pages: Can't see impressions for a single Update

Hi


The query type "Update details" provides only metrics for amount of updates, comments and likes. Is there a work around to provide impressions as well?

I tried to use the function "blend data" to combine "Update details" and "Historical shares" but it didn't work because they don't have the same dimensions


I would like to have a table as described below:

(Dimensions)Date|Submitted image|Content Text|URL|  => (Metrics)|Impressions|Likes|Shares|Comments

(see screenshot as well)


Is there a solution for my problem?


Thank you so much.


Best

Simon

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.
    In the Update Details report type, that is unfortunately all we can get. Impressions and Shares are under a different report type in LinkedIn API, "Share totals" or "Historical share statistics". 

    A work around would be to do a data blend two instances of the same data source, the two report types "Update details" and "Historical share statistics" with Date as the Join Key. Read more: Using DS Data Blending Feature With Supermetrics
