What’s New at Advanced Web Ranking? (November 2022)

Dec 7, 2022


min read

We have lots to talk about today: share permalinks from UI reports, YoY change Search Volume column, more search depth options, improved keyword groups management, and more.

So let’s get right into it – use the sidebar on the right to jump to a particular update.

Ranking Stats Quicker Shared via Permalinks

You can now generate permalinks directly from the UI reports, using the newly added Share button. This quick action will generate a share link with the current report's preferences.

Year-over-Year Change Search Volume Column

The Search Volume column got upgraded with the YoY change metric. This Volume percent change is calculated by comparing the searches from the latest month with the ones of the corresponding month of the previous year.

Upgraded Ranking Notification Emails

Project summary and the Initial update overview notification emails have just got a more comprehensive and easier to skim look.

You can customize the notification emails frequency from the Settings-General Settings menu ('Email updates' section).

Email Notifications Frequency

The ranking notifications preferences have been changed. The default frequency of sending email updates for newly gathered rankings is now set to weekly on Mondays (instead of daily, as it used to be). 

More Search Depth Options 

New search depth options are now available: 1, 2, and respectively 3 pages

New Match Type Search Options

The keyword/URL search options have been renamed and extended. When opening the 'Search options' menu (next to the 'Search for keyword/URL' field), you'll notice you can now choose between Exact, Partial, and Phrase match types. 

Let's take for instance the keyword 'recipe'. The Exact match will return results containing only the word 'recipe' alone, the Phrase match will return keywords that contain this word (such as 'meatloaf recipe', 'recipe of the year'), while the Partial match will return results with the word as part of the keyword searched (e.g. 'recipes', 'allrecipes.com'). The default search option (when not using the 'Search options' menu) will continue to be 'Partial' match.

Improved Column Selector

New options are now available in the column selector. You'll no longer have to deselect each column at a time for each section, by using the newly added option called Only. Once you're ready with your selection, hit the new Apply button to see your preferred metrics in the table view.

Keyword Groups Management

Multiple Keyword Groups Selection
Multiple keyword groups can be selected simultaneously in the Ranking-Keywords view using the newly added checkboxes in front of them. KPI aggregates will be automatically calculated based on your keyword groups selection.

Remove Keywords from Groups
Removing a keyword from a group just got easier! All you need to do is navigate to Settings-Project settings-Keywords, choose a keyword group, check the keywords you'd like to remove from that group, select Manage, and then the Remove from [group-name] group option. This comes in handy when you have keywords assigned to multiple groups and decide to remove some of them from a certain keyword group.

And that’s pretty much it for November! 🙂
