Local search grid is a geolocation rank tracker. What’s one of those, I hear you cry? It’s a more granular way of tracking a business’s local rankings.
It shows rankings across the local area, broken up into a grid. This lets a business see how well it ranks in all of the areas around that business, to see the real picture in its neighborhood, town, or city. Once a business knows exactly how it's ranking across the local area, it can focus its efforts accordingly, or work out who its real competitors are.
With BrightLocal, you have a few different options. If you’re just after a quick, ad-hoc look, then try our free Local Search Results Checker.
For more detailed long-term tracking we have two options. Local Search Grid, and the more traditional Local Rank Tracker. Both tools come as standard in all our BrightLocal local SEO plans and offer the perfect blend of breadth and depth in your local rank tracking.
A geolocation rank tracker, like Local Search Grid, gives you a hyperlocal overview of local ranking performance across a particular area. It differs from other local rank tracking tools as these focus on local ranking performance from a single location only.
