For SEO specialists

Tracking just rankings or SERP visibility does not provide you with an accurate view of how your SEO efforts are really impacting Page One. These standard metrics don’t account for Featured Snippets or an increase in paid advertising space. Being ranked number one doesn’t mean you’re at the top of the page – it could be half way down! That’s why SERPsketch is essential for understanding your share of Page One.

Prevent cannibalisation of other brand tactics

  • Google has complicated the search landscape with its own features so PPC and SEO can end up working against each other, as well as partners against brands. With SERPsketch,  monitor cross-channel tactics to make sure that SEO efforts aren’t cannibalised.
  • SERPsketch not only helps you see where your PPC and SEO might overlap, but it allows you to discover what you should be doing to earn additional feature space.


Measure your share of space

  • Even if you’re ranking higher organically every month, it will have little impact unless you’re on Page One and showing in the particular SERP features that Google is prioritising for that keyword. SERPsketch shows you exactly how much of the SERPs you occupy across a keyword set by visual share of the total page.
  • Results are broken down to show which features of the results page you and your competitors are visible in. Crucially, you can see every domain that has appeared across a keyword set, making search competitor analysis quick and easy. Or drill down to see every URL that has appeared on Page One for a given keyword.
