SERP tracking is not an exact science, and many times rankings checked on two different rank trackers - or checked via a standard Google search - will differ. This document covers the most common scenarios.
Create CUSTOM report sections. You're not limited to our stock sections. Add a blank section, edit the title, add widgets from multiple integrations, and organize the section with title headers to create an SEO, Traffic, or PPC overview etc.
Add and configure custom report widgets, where you can add arbitrary text and images via a WYSIWIG editor. Great for providing commentary, analysis, upsells, coupon codes, custom charts/graphs, client logos, and more.
Import data from 3rd party integrations that we don't natively support by sending it from the 3rd party API to Zapier.com to a Google Sheet, and finally to our reporting system. This same method with embedding Google Sheets can also be used to pull any arbitrary spreadsheet into our system.
