How to enable or disable the Google 3-pack

From within a campaign, click "Settings" on the bottom of your left side menu. 

Next, navigate to the "Advanced tab".

You'll then see the "Rankings" settings. From here, click to enable or disable the Google 3-pack.

Then, click "Save" before leaving the screen.

Since Google Local SERPs include 3 Pack results by their nature, the settings described here only apply to the standard Google rankings SERP tracking.

Definitions

  • Toggling your Google 3 Pack setting to "Enabled" means that when we find your site or Google Business Page (GBP) in the 3 Pack, we'll report that as your organic rank, even if your site also appears elsewhere in the organic SERPS.
  • Toggling your Google 3 Pack setting to "Disabled" means that we will completely ignore the 3 Pack when reporting your SERP rankings.

Example

Let's say that your site is Pizzaiolo.ca. Notice that the site appears in the 1st position in the 3-Pack, and in the 3rd position in the organic SERPs.

If you have the 3 Pack setting enabled in our dashboard, then your rank for the keyword "Pizza" will be reported as 1st, since we'd be using that 3-Pack ranking position.

If you have the 3 pack setting disabled in our dashboard, then your rank for the keyword "Pizza" will be reported as 3rd, since we're ignoring the 3-pack, and reporting only the standard SERP results.
