Search Engines



The Search Engine report provides a complete data summary of search engine results, organized by keyword or domain for ease in comparing results with those of the competition.

This report is similar to the Rank Tracker Dashboard, but with 2 unique feature differences:
  • Search traffic visits for keywords are included, if your campaign is connected to a Google Analytics account.
  • All Search Engines (if selected in the report options) are displayed in one table side-by-side instead of separate tables for each search engine.

Single Domain View

 

In Single Domain View, the rank for the selected search engines is displayed for the primary website being tracked in the campaign. The report has options to show or hide most columns, and sort by the data type you prefer. You can also click the funnel icon at the top of the table and filter the data.

Competitive View

 

In Competitive View mode, any or all of the campaign's tracked competitor URLs can be viewed and compared to the primary domain.

In this example, in addition to the Domain URL, Search Engine Name, Best Rank, Average Rank, Ahrefs Indexed Pages & Domain Backlinks columns, the option to highlight the primary domain has been set to Show, and makes it easier to identify the client's rank compared to the competition.

White Label Search Engines Reporting

The Search Engines report can be customized using a wide variety of report options (see section below) and added to a white label web Marketing Dashboard, Client Dashboard or scheduled PDF report.

In this example, Google Play Store rank metric widgets are followed by a text box that explains the SERP icons that display in the Search Engines report on the page.  The report search funnel was expanded to filter the Average Rank column.
