The Ranking Monitor monitor enables you to track the positions of these businesses in the search results, even if Google does not show a website address.

You get more keywords and more results

You might have seen other ranking checkers that promise you 1000 ranking checks. If you check a keyword on Google, Google Mobile, Bing and Yahoo with these other ranking checkers, they will count this as 4 keywords.

The Ranking Monitor in SEOprofiler is much more customer friendly. If you check one keyword at Google, Google Mobile, Bing and Yahoo, this counts as one keyword.

That means that you get four times more keywords with SEOprofiler. The Ranking Monitor checks the top 100 results so you get more results than with other ranking checkers.

Save time with alerts and opportunities

The alerts and opportunities pages in the Ranking Monitor show you the keywords that need your attention.

For example, the opportunities page shows keywords for which your website is listed on the second results page. By increasing the rankings for these keywords, you will get many more visitors, because the listings on the first results page get many more clicks.

Moving from the top of the second results page to the first results page is relatively easy and you will get many more website visitors.

The Ranking Monitor even shows the potential traffic increase and the number of additional visitors that your website will get.

John MuellerGoogle's John Mueller: why Google does not index all of your pages

"On Twitter, Google's John Mueller said that creating additional Sitemap files won't help if Google does not index specific URLs on your website. If Google indexes only 30 of 100 URLs, it does not help to put the missing 70 URLs in a separate Sitemap file."

Official: Googlebot does not support CSS custom properties

"On Twitter, Google’s Eric Bidelman said that GoogleBot is unable to crawl CSS custom properties. Google Search crawler is based on Chrome 41, which does NOT support CSS Custom Properties. If your layout/design relies on vars, make sure you're compiling CSS so your page renders properly."

John MuellerGoogle’s John Mueller: lazy loading images don’t always work with Google

"Lazy loading images means loading images on websites asynchronously. This can be done by showing images only when they appear in the browser’s viewport. If users don’t scroll all the way down, images placed at the bottom of the page won’t be loaded. The purpose of this is to make users feel that your website loads quickly."

Google announces multiple featured snippets for ambiguous searches

"Sometimes the words we use to ask a question are broad and there could be several different interpretations of the question. With multifaceted featured snippets, we’re able to better understand your query and recognize when there could be multiple interpretations of that query."
