Screenshots of Ranking Results

The new screenshots feature allows you to see exactly how the search results looked when our system crawled them, and to get the complete picture of your rankings across each location you’re tracking.

Simply click on the little camera in the ranking results table to see the screenshot. We store and provide the results from all 5 pages of the crawl. This means you can click through to see all of the results. Our system will store screenshots in your campaign for 3 months so you can go back to compare changes over time.

To use this feature in your campaigns:

    1. Go to your Active Campaigns screen.
    2. Click Edit on the campaign you wish to update.

  1. Use the toggle to turn on Screenshots.
  2. Use the sub-toggles to select search engines.
  3. Click Save.

More Awesome Updates

Default Rankings View – The default engine is now Google Local Finder instead of Google Organic. We’re focused on local rankings, so we’ve put these front and center. I personally always switch to Local Finder every time I open the tool, and many of our users do too, so hopefully, this helps save you a step.

We’ve also set the default date range to 30 days, and chart type to be an area chart.

Updates to Ranking Overview – We’ve enhanced our rankings overview section with a better rankings distribution chart to help you quickly see your positions at a glance.

Eliminated Bugs – There were a few bugs with how the data was being displayed, but we squashed those, and if you were one of the few people that noticed oddities with the date pickers, this issue is fixed.

Improved Sparklines – The sparklines on the left side of the results table have been improved to show you how a keyword has progressed over time.

Overhauled Comparison Features – The competitor comparison and keyword comparison features have been overhauled and improved as well.

More Details On Campaigns List Page – The campaign list page has been updated to provide better at-a-glance information on each of your campaigns. Additional information now shown includes:

  • 7-day overview of ranking performance over the past week.
  • Campaign creation date.
  • Daily or weekly tracking.
  • Keyword usage metrics.
  • Next scheduled crawl date.
