Rank Values Explained


The meaning of 100+, N/A, N/R, "-" and   



The three moving dots   are an indicator that rank tracking is in progress for the keywords and you should check the report later in the day for results.  We do the best we can to complete the rank tracking as early as possible every day, however, there are some factors that are beyond our control (e.g., search engine response rate).

3 dots in a Rank Dashboard report
Rank Tracker Dashboard displaying tracking in progress for the keywords "smart home technology" and "home security".


100+ is our system default for when our rank tracker did not find the keyword ranking for the primary domain within the maximum supported results tracked by each search engine (refer to our current list of supported search engines and rank depth for additional information), and the search engine did return webpages on other domains with results for the keyword.
 
rank of 500+
Rank Tracker Dashboard displaying 100+ as the rank result for several keywords. Options exist in the Account Settings > Theme & Localization screen to set no rank within tracked results as "100+", "N/A", "NR", or "-"


N/A means that the search engine did not return any result for the keyword, which most likely means that the keyword is not indexed by the search engine at all (e.g., the keyword "lawn mower Nome, Alaska").

N/A is also an account-wide option that can be selected in the Theme & Localization settings to represent no rank value (e.g., instead of 100+), other options include "NR", "-", or "100+". Please check your account settings before requesting assistance for a keyword that you are certain is indexed.

If you're using one of our rank reporting APIs, they return a dash "-" in the rank field when no value is available.

No Data Found


If your account is relatively new, and depending on several variables (number of keywords, number of search engines, date range, etc.), rank reports can take anywhere from a few minutes to a 8 hours until your first reports will display all of the data.  In the case of a campaign that is a day or more old, incorrect campaign configuration can lead to empty reports as well.  Clicking the Default Report Settings button usually resolves the issue.

no data found


Common causes for 'no data found' message:
  • Account is new and our rank tracker is gathering data
  • Invalid date range (e.g., the report start date is older than the campaign creation date)
  • Keyword / URL combination on report options was not found 
  • within the maximum supported results tracked by each search engine (refer to our current list of supported search engines and rank depth for additional information). Note that this is relevant only for rank reports and graphs.
  • Incomplete campaign setup (missing URL / Keywords / Search Engines / Authorized Connections)
  • Website is new and hasn't been indexed by search engines yet
  • Authorized connection to a third party data provider has expired or been configured incorrectly (refer to the third party integration, or specific report documentation) 
  • Delays or outage of third party data provider (e.g., Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

If keywords are missing completely from a rank report, there are 2 possibilities:
  • New keywords may have been added to the campaign, but not selected. Learn more...
  • The search engine did not return any result for the keyword on any domain. In some rank reports, Rank Ranger will not display keywords for which the search engine displays no results - meaning no results for any URL on the web.  So if Google.com has results, but Google Mobile does not, you will see results for the keyword in the Google.com table, but the keyword will not display at all in the Google Mobile table. That is the way the system is designed because it needs a response from the search engine in order to record a number and when there is no response, then there is no number.
