I'm in Love with a Tool: SEMrush Changelog, Health and More, 09/04/2015


You can watch the video above or click "Read More" for the full text and video version of this post. Reading more will also give you information about SEMrush Health [bugs/fixes, outages, etc.] as well as updates about our Customer Success efforts

  • New Landing Pages Report [Position Tracking]: Once again, we've improved the Position Tracker with a report called Landing Pages. You'll find this new report in tabs once you access any of your Position Tracking campaigns. Landing Pages pulls together all of the landing page URLs associated with the ranking keywords. This pivot-table style report starts with the URLs but adds a drop-down layer of all keywords for each URL, the actual and average positions as well as their actual and total search volumes.
  • Blog and Webinar Subscriptions: The SEMrush Blog and the SEMrush Webinars sections now include a subscription box off towards the right column of the screen. This is going to allow us to properly segment our mailing lists and decrease the amount of emails we send to users that may not want to receive certain messages.

  • Between August 31st and September 04, 2015, we've experienced issues with the collection and accessibility of our USA legacy analytics for Organic and Advertising research. Accessibility issues are expected to clear up by the time this blog is posted and collection issues are almost fully consistent. We still need another 24 hours or so to bring it back to full operation.
  • I'm happy to report that, for now, Position Tracking maintenance is complete and the tool itself is stable. If another round of maintenance crops up in the future, we will keep you updated.

Come See us Next Week at These Great Events!

Hey Eric,

Thanks for checking it out. I've heard the same thing and I would love to see a side-by-side comparison done. The good thing is that you shouldn't have to wait to accrue the data because, even though the Landing Pages report is new, it will work with your historical Position Tracking data. Of course, like you said, you'll need to have the same keywords in both GWMT and SEMrush.

David, what I find particularly interesting is there are ways to make direct comparisons with this data and overlap with Google Search Console (EG: Webmaster Tools).

So, I can take the mean of the search volume and there for keywords, for example.

I heard a lot of people complain about data in there. I wonder if some of that is because they are not so accurate in reporting search position? this way I can compare. Also, I would take all words in Google Console and add to my Position tracker.

Keep singing to the top! And let's hope someone will someday Disallow all the thin content on SEMrush.com so there is useful ranking and you get some useful listings on Google about product and blog.

The company has lost over 50% search traffic in last 12 months while the amount of inbound links probably doubled. Today, #3 top keyword for the site is: overture monitor five bids nzinternal

That's not following basics of "staying topical" that matters so much for ranking in the age of Hummingbird.
