Core Rank Tracking - A Local Enterprise SEO Tool


Picture this…

You’re running an SEO agency and you’ve just landed a big client.

How big?

We’re talking about a big franchise that has hundreds of locations country-wide.

Okay, so before you break out the champagne, you might want to think about a few issues first. I mean, how on earth are you going to manage the data or performance of so many locations?

Each location has its own SEO issues to deal with. Are you going to track each one separately? Can you imagine how cumbersome that would be?

Well, one of our brilliant brand ambassadors, Jenny Halasz, has been asking us for a solution to this problem for years. Our response?

Rank Ranger Core Rank Tracking.

In this post, I’ll show you how Core Rank Tracking:
  • Elegantly deals with the complexity of big business by giving you unlimited locations all in a single campaign
  • Allows you to create your own big database
  • Has no keyword limit
  • Allows you to easily filter your data to present it any way you need

Having the perfect meta title and description, like a great book cover, are essential in getting users to continue to your website. They’re also a part of having a well-optimized page for Google to drool over. However, all too often the content that makes up a meta tag is truncated when it appears on the SERP.

Here’s a quick look at what this SERP preview tool can do for your meta tags!

Google Keyword Planner Search Volume Affected by Google Advertising Policies


If you're using Google Keyword Planner to do keyword research, you might notice something strange. When searching for keyword volumes for certain terms, you might find there are simply no results.

Now, I’m not talking about obscure terms. I’m talking about terms that should get thousands of searches every month.

We tried performing searches for many random terms and many of them got no results.

After getting in touch with Barry Schwartz we discovered this…

Google Keyword Planner won’t show data for keywords that fall under its restricted content policies.

In this post, we'll cover what these policies are and how to do keyword research with Keyword Planner if you happen to be in certain niches.

Google Web Stories Tracking


There is no question that winning a SERP Feature is one of the most effective ways to increase your site’s SERP visibility. So, when Google rolled out Web Stories on May 1st we took it as a new SERP feature opportunity.

In response to this, we’re really excited to announce that Rank Ranger is now tracking Google Web Stories in our rank tracking suite.

In this post, I'll be sharing what Web Stories are and how they are now seamlessly integrated into Rank Ranger's software.

Hope no more, we just released a brand new metric designed to give you the big picture.

Tracking Rank Now That Featured Snippets Are Position 1


Google's removal of the URL that appears within its Featured Snippets from the page one organic results has thrown the SEO world into a bit of tizzy. As things begin to settle down, one of the questions we have to deal with is how to consider Featured Snippet URLs when tracking our ranking progress. With only one instance of the URL on page one of the SERP many are now considering Featured Snippets as the new position 1. But tracking rank with Featured Snippets as the #1 organic result presents its own problems. 

Learn how to track rank with Featured Snippets as position 1 and how you can identify when a top-ranking result is a Featured Snippet vs. an organic result.
