To set the search range, go to Settings → General.
Choose the search range – 100 or 200:
- “Search Range 100” means that the service analyzes the Top-100 results (first 10 pages of the search engine results);
- “Search Range 200” means that the service analyzes the Top-200 (first 20 pages of the search engine results).
The search range of 100 is enough for old websites with good SEO. If the website is quite young, we recommend using 200 to allow more accurate tracking.
Checking rankings for exact URL
To track the rankings of a specific internal page, go to Settings → General and put a checkmark next to “Advanced options” → “Exact URL”. Your rankings will be checked only for the exact URL without including sub folders and sub domains.
Please note that if you specify the URL www.mysite.com and your website is displayed as www.mysite.com/en in search engine results, the ranking position based on your search query won’t be shown.
This option is suitable if you want to track a single page of a site, a group or a page in a social network, a video on YouTube, and so on.
Checking subdomain rankings
If your site has subdomains, you can check their rankings within the same project. To do this, go to Settings → General → Advanced options → Match subdomains. (i.e., check not only site.com, but also domain1.site.com, domain2.site.com, etc.).
