Step by step

Step 1:
Name your Content Ranking Index. The name will appear on all the reports. In this step, you can also select one of your Projects for this Content Ranking Index.

Step 2:
Enter the name of the domain you want to track. This can be your own domain name, but you can put any domain you want.

Step 3:
Select the country for which you want to track your content performance.

Step 4:
Add up to 30 keywords (phrases) that are the most important for your website. The Content Ranking Index will show you how “visible” your site is on these keyword(phrase)s. These are words/terms that are important for your business. If you need help choosing the right keywords, use the Synonyms tool in this field or run a Keyword Analysis!

Step 5: (optional)
The fifth step is optional. You can enter max 5 domains of your competitors so you can compare their performance.

Step 6:
In this step you can specify whether you want us to automatically update the Content Ranking Index every week, and which team members should receive an update email. Of course you can manually update the Content Ranking Index whenever you like.

Save your settings, your Content Ranking Index is created!

The report will show you:

Your Content Ranking Index (CRI)
The CRI is a score between 0 and 100. A higher score is better and means that your overall visibility for the keywords you have set is better. In calculating the CRI we also take into account the search volume of each keyword – the higher the search volume, the more important it is in the overall score.

Rankings per keyword
For each keyword you’ve monitored you will see the estimated monthly search volume and the best ranking position for each website.

Ranking pages
In this section you can see what pages are ranking for the given keyword. The Content Ranking Index is based on the chosen keywords.

Note: generating an CRI report costs credits from you credit balance.
