Monitor SERP Features with Alerts, Exports & Competitor Analysis Tools

Have you been wishing for a tool that would notify you every time that a SERP feature displayed or changed for your keywords in Google search results?  If so, we have good news for you... easy, no hassle, automated email alerts!! 

Get SERP Features Reports by Email

Quick and easy to set up, the SERP Features Monitor can be scheduled to send daily, weekly, or monthly notifications directly to any email address you'd like.

SERP Features email notifications include a list of SERP features displaying in Google Search for each individual keyword, along with new features gained and other features lost since the previous period.

In this example, the keyword "grandma's banana nut bread" has an Image Thumbnail and Rating SERP Feature today, but lost a Featured Snippet and Breadcrumbs, while "lunch recipes" gained Sitelinks in addition to the Featured Snippet it had yesterday.

You'll find this new alert option in the Tools > Email Notifications section of Rank Ranger. Access this quick tutorial to start receiving SERP feature change alerts.

Export a SERP Features Summary

If you'd prefer a summary of the SERP features scored by the tracked domain and competitors, then our SERP Features Summary export to CSV format is a great option.  With it you'll receive a file that can be opened in Excel or imported into your database or application that contains:
  • the total number of campaign keywords
  • the number of times the primary domain displayed in Google top 20 search results with a specific Google SERP Feature for any of those keywords
  • the total number of times other domains displayed in Google top 20 search results with a specific Google SERP Feature for any of the campaign keywords
  • the primary tracked site's Domain Share for each SERP feature

Supported SERP Features include:
  • AMP
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Carousel
  • Featured Snippet
  • Image Thumbnail
  • Local Result
  • Phone
  • Reviews
  • Search Box
  • Sitelinks
  • Structured Snippets
  • Video Thumbnail
As Google adds new SERP features and phases out others, our SERP feature options will be adjusted. Learn more about Google SERP Features in our Visual SERP Feature Guide

The SERP Features Summary export can be accessed in the Tools > Utilities section of Rank Ranger under Campaign Export.
