We’ve just added screenshot functionality to the Local Search Rank Checker. With this new feature you can view a screenshot of the SERP that we’ve used to determine your search ranking.
This will help you to diagnose any potential ranking issues & changes, as well as keeping an eye on which competitors are ranking above and below you.
This feature is available now for all BrightLocal users. You’ll just need to activate it in your account.
How to activate SERP screenshots
To activate the screenshot feature you’ll need to click the ‘photo icon’ on the main page of the Local Search Rank Checker (see image below).
Following this you’ll be directed to a screen where you can select the search engines that you wish to track screenshots for (see image below).
One you’re in the ranking report, you can then click on your position to bring up the ‘more info’ box. This allows you to ‘View Search Results Page’, ‘View Landing Page’ & ‘View Serp Screenshot‘.
All you need to do is click on View Serp Screenshot & it’ll open in a new window for you. You can then zoom in and out, save the image, or send the URL to a client / colleague.
We currently save your screenshots for 45 days before deleting them, enabling you to visualise any monthly to month changes.
Give the new feature a try and let us know what you think!
