either add a location for this report to be assigned to or we've already got like locations set up it's very useful to kind of select an existing location in this case I'm going to select Carrie Kane and what I do that some nice things happens is we pull in at the URL down here we put in the country we also set your search location for you and in the Advanced Settings we also put in some additional things like your business name phone number as if code which we do use as ways to identify your business within the search engine results if I scroll back up the first thing I want to point out is about the SEO search temps are here you would enter to the relevant terms such as legal business or lawyer or attorney anything that are relevant to your company now what you'll notice I'm not doing here is putting in a location modifier I'm not putting in city name town name or a zip code that's because I am able to set the search location down here no I want to I could add in New York here there's no problem but I can also basically set my search

location and setting a search location emulates where the searcher is coming from essentially if you're a business that targets custom area you can set the search location to be the area that customers are based in so essentially you can see where your business ranks from their point of view which is particularly useful and relevant for them for the local search in terms of your website address you can actually add up to 10 URLs now this is useful because you might have subdomains such a there might be I know that's a business dot carry can legal calm or you might want to track specific sort of social profiles like your Facebook page or your YouTube channel you can do those all within here with the website address if you put in the domain like I've got the top here and Carrie Kane deagle com essentially we will look for any page on Carrie Kane legal comic and website that's ranking if you have our say a multi location business and you've got three or four branches and you want to specifically track and the performance

of one particular branch then you want to put the specific landing page for that branch which could be for example you know if you've got lots of businesses you might have one in Miami for example you look at a particular URL into that but if you're not bothered about which page you get results back from then you should just put empty kind of base domain if you use subdomains you want to track those you need to put those separately as well so just by checking the the main domain it doesn't also track the subdomain so you want to do that you can then select which search engines you want to you want to track Google Mobile is available on gustas on our SEO Pro Plan and that's also available as an add-on for caspere's on our single business and multi business plans so you can go and purchase that and this option will appear in your ad report screen you can then select all the engines you want if you select Yahoo Yahoo and Yahoo local don't recognize the search location that's only for Bing and for Google so if you do want to use generic terms like the lawyer or legal

business but you want to be localized out in New York then what we can do is essentially append the search location and when we search in Yahoo so you are getting at earning New York or lawyer New York or legal business I being on Google do recognize the search location in the Advanced Settings section but we also devoted to track mentions of your business name as well as your URL we can map track mentions of the business carry canes we can pick that up in local results but also in results to where bit sites like Yelp or yellow pages or monter where they're listed for certain search terms but they have a profile for your business that's showing in the search results so here if I clicked on track mentions for your business or third-party results they're party sites when we find the name and carry cane or we find your telephone number we will return those results in your report for you so you can see your full coverage or your full visibility within the search results external URLs are if you want to publish your report
