The ranking monitor
The ranking monitor in SEOprofiler is a powerful tool that helps you to monitor your rankings on Google, Yahoo and Bing:
- The overview page contains the most important information about your rankings. Click the other pages to get the details about your rankings.
- This table shows the most important details about your rankings on a particular search engine.
- The key data boxes show you at a glance if your rankings have improved.
The Visibility score shows how well danesonline.com is ranked on search engines.
For every ranking, there are points. First place rankings get the most points, position 50 gives only one point, no ranking gives no points.
A visibility score of 100% means that you have first place rankings on all three search engines for all of your keywords.
