Transactional and Custom search intent groups

Two new groups added to each website for transactional and custom search intent.

The labels in the keyword reports have changed a little bit as well, I think they look much nicer now...

Export queries from the Page Details view

Whenever you click on a url in SEOTesting it takes you to the page details view.

On this view SEOTesting shows you all the queries the url has ranked for over the past 90 days, with how often each query is used on the page.

This data can now be exported to a CSV file to open in Excel or Google Sheets. Great to pass onto your content team.

Informational keyword highlighting

In all the reports that contains queries, we now highlight in yellow any part of the query that indicates it is an informational type query.

By default each site is setup to highlight the keywords 'what,who,when,where,which,why,how' - but these can be edited and added to via the edit screen for each website.

These types of informational queries are great for content expansion on existing pages, or good for new long form content that answer specific questions.

Query details page

The query details page has been improved. Whenever you see a query in a report you can click on it and then see what we call the 'query details view'.

The impressions, ctr and average position charts are hidden initially now, but can easily be viewed by ticking the checkbox.

These are now hidden as below the graphs we display all queries your site has appeared for in the search results that also contain the query you are viewing.

These related queries can be utilized for content expansion, and new content ideas.

It has been quite a few weeks of working on documentation and 'how to' guides.

You can find these all neatly listed via the Support and Docs link in the left hand navigation.

I've also recorded a bunch of 'getting started' videos to accompany each of the support articles. You can watch the entire playlist on YouTube here:

I'm looking forward to getting back to some code and new features now! :)

The 'New Keywords' report is now available via the Reports section.

This report is great for coming up with new content ideas. It displays the queries that your site has just started appearing in Google for.
Some of these you will have just published an article directly targetting - but through keyword and topic association (which is always changing/improving), Google will alert you to new content gaps and opportunities.

Target new high impression keywords for more clicks from Google.

The 'Saved Ideas' section has been added which is available via the left menu.

When going through query reports, you'll now find a lightbulb icon.

When you click on this it will save the query to the 'Saved Ideas' section so you can work on them later either as a new piece of content or an improvement to an existing page.

Some handy icons have been added to all the query based reports. These allow you to:

  • Search keyword in Google to see intent. Right click to open incognito.
  • Search keyword in Reddit to get content ideas.
  • Search keyword in Quora to get content ideas.
  • Check keyword in ahrefs.com.

A number of changes to the Page Details screen:

  • Only the clicks graph is shown by default now. Checkboxes available to display impressions, position, and CTR.
  • Current page title and meta description displayed
  • Keyword usage count is displayed for each query the page appears in the search results for.

The last point is really useful when looking at new keywords, content and sections to include in a page.
