Check your backlink quality and quantity.
where you're going to find all of your technical and on page SEO criteria so this is essentially so you can check to see if Google can interpret and then also evaluate your content when it finds in culture sites so we look for elements on your site like title tags h1 tags keyword usage and other kind of technical elements like robots.txt files XML sitemap image optimization and much more so if anything for you is not familiar with in this this on-page SEO stuff or actually any of the criteria within the review you can click into any of the criteria and get a better explanation some external resources about why we're looking for this what we're looking for how to fix it potentially so that's there's a lot of different criteria in here I'm going to jump down into the promote section just to quickly go through the tool here for you the most section is going to tell you how well you're promoting your visits online by giving you an overview of your backlink quality and quantity and also a recap of your social and your local presence so your Facebook page
Sync in your social media accounts and Google Analytics.
Twitter account Google+ crunch based entities and then also your your local local reviews as well in case you have them then the last section the measure section is going to show you your estimated traffic your traffic read both worldwide and nationally also where your visitors are coming from and if you synced your competitors you can compare your results with theirs here as well so for more in-depth data what you do is start a project and this is going to take you to all of our advanced features so pretty intuitively just click start project and it'll start configuring your more advanced features you are nautical ego get taken to the settings page and the really cool part about this like I said before just to quickly mention you can add your competitors here as well if you haven't done it on your page if you're not sure who your competitors are or if your professional do film architour and you're doing an audit for one of your clients and you don't have the time to do that sort of research we'd have the suggested competitors here that you can start doing competitive analysis so like I said this really cool feature here obviously I'm biased as I work here but I think it's very cool that your your ability to sync with your Google Analytics account and also your Google search console accounts so this is going to show you all of your traffic data for the last 12 months like sessions new visits average time spent on your site as well as your crawl errors and your top search queries within the GSEs once you drink these your project website review is going to be enhanced with a ton of extra data and that will give you much hard granular look at kind of your user behavior and user user usage down here an email subscription this is another really cool thing that you can do you can opt into our email alert so the first thing our automatic uptime notifications so what we do is we can sort of a constant server monitoring and we let you know whenever your website has gone down because you you know sometimes your web thinking about on kind of in socialable hours that can happen you know when you're out to dinner and maybe you're not looking at your website so we babysit your website at all time so you don't have to so you can immediately
Take advantage of our weekly reports.
take action if you're not you know at the office or something we also have a weekly email digest for a weekly snapshot of your site's performance in a nutshell so for digital agencies these email alerts are really wonderful and easy way to show your clients pretty tangible results from your efforts on a weekly basis and then the caller notifications are not a periodic thing they're just a notification whenever you started a call will send you a notification that your call is finished and you can go look at it so what we're going to do now is move into some of the advanced features like the keyword tool recycle and I'm going to move into a site crawl or sorry the keyword pilfer do you have any questions so far Chris no this is awesome okay so we're going to do CNN because I've already been tracking some keywords with them for the last couple of months so I could show you kind of more more information that way so once you're in the keyword tool the first thing that you'll see here is a graph of all the positions spread of your keywords within your project for the last 12 weeks so this really allows you to just visualize your progress over time and you can filter out if you're only really wanting to look at your top keywords you can kind of filter them out and only look at those so the darker the graph the better so your competitor is also automatically added within keyword tool so you don't have to manually do that that information is already cold so the starch matching keywords you click on this button up here add keyword to track and you can add all the keywords that you want to be found by separated by commas if you are totally new keyword research if you're totally new to SEO you don't know what you're doing we have suggested keywords down here based on some things that we found on your site so this will just give you a jumping-off point to start your keyword tracking how many keywords track story to do no that's right so each project will give you a credit of 50 keywords now you don't have to use all of them in one place you can kind of spread them around so if you're on our premium plan you will have five projects to play around with so that will give you total 250
Explore keywords.
keywords if you want to use all of those keywords for cnn.com you can if you want to use one you can it's really up to you to kind of distribute them that way if you're on the program which gives you access to one project you get 50 keywords to dress and then if you move on if you need more than 250 you can move on to our enterprise plan which has kind of kind of custom plans there for multi words that make sense oh yeah thank you okay sure you can also just quickly change your google domain based on where your visitors come from and also where your business operates so you don't have to stay in the US if that's not where your business is operating so here down here in the table you're see your average monthly search volume of a keywords you'll also see your latest ranking data with weekly changes in your site's position indicator in green if you will abduct them or red if you decrease them class and also you can see the same for your competition here so it really gives you a way to super visualize how your progress is doing for these particular keywords you can click on any one of these keywords so then see a historical graph of your keywords performance so here you can see that your performance Basin or star compared to your competitors and then also you can see a list of the top 10 Google results for that particular keyword now why this is really helpful at least for me if I'm CNN and I'm tracking you know ABC BBC and NBC that's all well and good but I've had I have a lot of other websites here in the top 10 that are performing better for this keyword then though than the competitors that I've identified so maybe it's time for me to kind of re-evaluate who I'm looking at myself against alright so that's pretty much it for the keyword tool I'm going to move into the site crawl actually coordinate yes those are keywords that the homepage is ranking for or that site wise it's it's site wide site why it's any page that is ranking for long word great so moving into site crawl here this is a much much more technical tool I know
Identify issues across your site to better rank your website.
