Category Metrics are enabled by default and allow you to view keyword movements quickly at a glance.
You can turn category metrics off, or choose to show different comparisons by modifying this setting in your settings
This chart displays your category's keyword visibility in Google. It is scored out of 100, and it is calculated by assigning points to each keyword based on their keyword ranking.
Each keyword starts off at a score of 100, then 1 point is subtracted for every rank they are behind.
Rank #1 = 100 points
Rank #2 = 99 points
Rank #3 = 98 points
Rank #10 = 91 points
Rank #100 = 1 point
Rank #101 = 0 points
Rank #102+ = 0 points
Afterwards, the score is divided by the number of keywords in the category.
This chart displays the average ranking of the keywords in your category. Only ranking keywords are included in this data.
Both of these graphs can be hidden by toggling the option within your settings (Under "Category Metrics")
Adding in Keywords
You can add a keyword into an existing category, or a new category.
To add in your first keyword, click on "Create Category" and input your desired category name, you will then be presented with a form to add in your keywords.
Input your domain name and your keywords (one keyword per line) into the form, and select the Google region you wish to track.
Multiple domains/keywords can be added in using the "Bulk Importer" feature. Once this option is ticked, you can add in your domains/keywords in the format "domain1.com:keyword1" (one per line).
You must select the corresponding language with the appropriate region if you decide to track a different Google region.
Ticking off the "Exact" checkbox will force SerpBook to only report back your inputted URL. (SerpBook will report back the first ranking URL by default).
Ignore Local Listings
Ticking off the "Ignore Local Listings" checkbox will force SerpBook will ignore Google Places/Local listings.
Ticking off the "Change Location" checkbox will force SerpBook to check your keyword from your desired ZIP code/location. This should be used if you plan on ranking keywords that rely on local traffic (ie. "Toronto Dentist"). For example, if you depend on traffic or want to search from a specific location like a certain Zip Code, this option would be best for you.
