New Features added to Ranking Report

As part of our ongoing improvements to all our tools and reports, we have added two great features to your Search Ranking Reports.

  1. Keyword Query Count
  2. Keyword Groups

Keyword Query Count*

For each of your keywords we now display the ‘Count’ of the number of searches done by searchers in Google per month.

This data is extracted directly from the AdWords Keyword Planner tool and is useful to understand the popularity of your keywords and to estimate the traffic opportunity they hold. You can quickly compare the counts for different terms and determine which terms to focus your SEO efforts on.

Localized Keyword Query Counts

We understand that local SEOs and local businesses want to know how local customers are searching for their business/service. This extends to knowing how many searches are being done for each keyword by users in their town or city.

If you set a ‘Search Location’ on your report, then we use that location as part of our query to Google to get search volumes. We can provide accurate local query volumes for almost every town and city around the globe.

Converting Zip Codes/Postal Codes to a Town or City

Google’s Keyword Planner has a database of 85,000 towns and cities that they provide local query volumes for. We look to match your search location to a town/city in their database.

Unfortunately, Google doesn’t recognize zip codes or postal codes in the Keyword Planner tool. So if you use a zip code/postcode as the search location in a report, we identify the corresponding town/city and grab the search volume based on that location. This gives you an idea of the local search volumes and enables you to compare different keywords against each other.

Show/Hide Keyword Query Count to Customers

We know that there are situations where you might not want to display these search numbers. So we have also added the ability for you to show or hide the keyword query counts on reports you provide to your customers. By default we DON’T display the counts in both external reports and external PDFs.

But you can show this data in the ‘Advanced Settings’ section of each of your reports.
