What is Google Mobile in the Rank Tracker?

The "Google Mobile" data shows how your site is ranking on Google search results from mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.

Our Rank Tracker can provide detailed information on how your sites are ranking on Google mobile searches. We collect daily rankings on the first 100 results shown in the search results (excluding ads).

This data is found in the "Google Mobile" sections of our rankings dashboard, and in "Google Mobile" widgets in reports and custom dashboards.

Toggling Google Mobile rankings

To enable Google Mobile rankings, open the settings slider on your Rank Tracker dashboard. Next, tick the box for "Google Mobile Rankings" to begin tracking rankings.

You can also toggle "Google Mobile Change" to monitor the changes in your rankings across time. The change scores are calculated by comparing the rankings on the first day of your date range against rankings on the final day of your date range.

Confirming the Google Mobile rankings we show

We capture a full snapshot of the exact SERPs Google delivers when we check your rankings. This allows agencies and their clients to check why we're reporting your rankings a certain way, and to see competitors and other SERP information.

To view this SERP snapshot, go to the Rank Tracker dashboard and hover over either the numerical ranking or "not found" for the keyword that you'd like to check.

A small popup will appear, showing the time of the last rank check and a SERP verification link.

This SERP verification link will provide an interactive screenshot of the exact SERP that appeared when we checked the keyword's rank. Note that the SERP verification link only shows when you include today in your date range (since we keep only the latest snapshot). You can read more about manually verifying SERPs here.
