Rankwatch introduces Console, a tool that enhances and expands the data from Google Search Console, making it more useful and actionable!

That’s where Rankwatch’s Console comes in. This tool simplifies and improves the use of Google Search Console, making it more useful and dependable for professionals in the field.
Introducing Rankwatch Console: The Premier Tool for Digital Marketers
Rankwatch Console is a powerful upgrade to Google Search Console that offers numerous benefits and unlimited access. With this tool, you can monitor your website’s health, optimize your on-site SEO, generate new ideas, prevent keyword cannibalization, and more – all for free with a Rankwatch trial account. Simply sign up for a trial and you’ll find the Console on your Rankwatch dashboard.
There are several reasons why you may want to consider using Rankwatch Console:
While Google Search Console and other tools offer similar features, Rankwatch Console stands out with its comprehensive range of benefits. In this article, we’ll delve into each category of the Console in detail.
1. Performance Tab
The performance tab in Rankwatch Console provides a high-level view of your website, including data on impressions, clicks, CTR percentage, ranking keywords, and ranking pages.
Additionally, this tab displays both the actual numbers and the percentage change in ranking positions for each section. This allows you to easily track fluctuations in your rankings on a daily basis.
Impressions: When a user’s search query brings up your website in the search results, it is counted as an impression. An increase in impressions indicates that your website is visible and relevant, while a decrease suggests that Google does not find your website content to be relevant to the user’s search query. To improve your page’s relevance, you may need to work on its content and on-page SEO.
Clicks: Clicks occur when a user actually clicks on your website’s URL after it appears in the search results. A high number of clicks indicates that your website is generating a good amount of traffic, while a low number may indicate that your titles, meta descriptions, and content quality are not effectively converting impressions into clicks.
CTR Percentage: CTR, or click-through rate, is calculated by dividing the number of clicks by the number of impressions. It gives you an average percentage of how many users find your website helpful and visit it regularly. A high CTR indicates that your website is doing well on search engines, while a low CTR may suggest that there are problems that need to be addressed.
Ranking Keywords & Pages: These sections show you the number of keywords and URLs for which your website is ranking. A high number in these sections means that your website’s content matches the user’s search intent, while a low number may indicate that your website is not ranking well for relevant keywords. Rankwatch Console can help you identify relevant keywords that are generating traffic for your competitors and accidental search queries that may be impacting your rankings.
The filter section in Console’s dashboard is prominently displayed and includes three main filters: Date Range, Location, and Device. These filters can be found at the top of the page, making them easy to access and use.
The date range filter allows you to choose the specific time frame for which you want to view data. If you’ve just connected your website for the first time, you’ll have access to historical data going back 16 months!
With the location filter, you can narrow down results to a specific country and the device filter lets you choose the type of device you want to see performance for, including mobile, tablet, or desktop.
Additional advanced filters, including keyword filters, can be found beneath the performance tab. These filters include options to view:
- Ranking keywords
- Ranking declined
- Keywords that have left the first page
- Keywords that have entered the first page
- Keywords that have started ranking
- Keywords that have stopped ranking
Using these filters can help you refine your results and get a more detailed view of your website’s performance.
3. Average Position Distribution Graph
The average position distribution graph allows you to see where your website stands in relation to search engine results based on the filters you’ve selected. In other words, it provides a visual representation of your website’s position in the search engine.
For instance, in the above figure, you can see that the different segments of the graph are designated with different colors. When you hover over the first segment, it will display the number of keywords that were ranked between positions 4 to 10 during the date range you selected.
The following segment illustrates the number of keywords that were ranked between positions 11 to 50 in the selected date range, and so forth. This information provides a general idea of keyword positioning and highlights the areas that you should focus on.
For instance, if you group the keywords that are ranked between positions 11 to 50, you’ll realize that with a small improvement effort, they can help bring in lots of traffic to your website. You can add them to meta description, alt text, title and so on, and you will start to see gradual results.
4. Table Data
The tabular data presented in the Console will be an essential tool for your analysis. It provides a detailed overview of your website’s performance and includes important metrics such as impressions, clicks, and average CTR for each keyword.
Additionally, you can view information such as ranking URLs, positions, changes in clicks and impressions, and more.
Unlike Google Search Console, Rankwatch’s console tabular data is not limited to 1000 rows, it includes data for up to a million search queries of your website!

For example: on excel you can add a column word count and use this formula (=LEN(<insert keyword cell>)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(<insert keyword cell>,” “,””))+1) to calculate the word count of queries your website ranked for and then filter down search queries where the word count is more than 3 and spot all the long tail keywords Or identify question based queries simply by refining results where question words like “what” “who” “how”, etc.
