What if TrueRanker does not suggest any keywords? #

If this happens, it is because we did not find any keyword in our database for which your project is ranking in Google. In this case, we advise you to add the keywords by hand or from Google Search Console.

 

Choose the location or locations where you want to monitor the position of the keywords #

With TrueRanker you can monitor the position of your keywords in more than 100,000 locations.
Select locations

Select one or more locations to monitor the positions of your keywords.

You can choose a country, a province, a locality, etc. By default, the country you have registered with TrueRanker will be added as the location. If you want you can delete that location and add another one.

Select the type of device where you want to monitor your keywords #

You can monitor your keywords on the Desktop (simulating the search from a computer) or from mobile (simulating the search from a mobile device). You can also choose the option to monitor keywords on both devices (this will count as 2 keywords for your project).

Choose device type
Choose device type

What type of device should I choose for my project? #

The best thing to do is to find out what devices people are using to reach your website. You can see this data in Google Analytics. If you have more users visiting your website via computer, choose “Desktop”. If not, choose “Mobile”.

Group your keywords by adding tags to your keywords (optional) #

You can add tags to the keywords you are going to add directly to categorize them later. This will give you a better overview of the data for each keyword group.

 

3. Add competitors to your project #

One of the best TrueRanker modules is the competitor’s module. With TrueRanker you will be able to track the keyword positions of your competitors in your same project. This is very useful to see how the SEO strategy of companies competing with you for the same keywords is evolving.
