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.
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.
Since Web Stories offer big SEO opportunities, we felt we wanted to help you take advantage of this new format.
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.
As a marketer, it's important to track how your brand compares to your competitors. Not knowing this is like navigating a ship without plotting where your current location is. You’ll never know if you are nearing your destination if you don’t know where you currently are.
Wouldn't it be great if you had a 30, 000-foot view of your marketing campaign demonstrating where your brand stands in comparison to your competitors?
Hope no more, we just released a brand new metric designed to give you the big picture.

You really don't want to give a potential consumer an excuse not to trust you. This makes knowing what shows on the SERP for your brand extremely important. Nothing can be worse for brand trust than a branded query that yields negative sentiment.
With that, I am both happy and proud to present Rank Ranger's new Reputation Management Rank Tracking Suite designed specifically for tracking brand sentiment on the SERP!
TF*IDF for SEO... depending on who you talk to it's either the most over-hyped thing in Search since the last over-hyped thing in Search or it's a great way to boost your SEO efforts.

Sounds like a plan to me!
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.
