When making up your mind to enter a keyword niche, you should always consider how stiff the niche competition is. Thus first you look at the number of sites competing for the word on Google. But what the savviest SEOs do to get the most objective idea of niche competition is checking how many of the competitors are actually making effort to optimize their sites for that word. These guys are your real competitors as they didn't get mixed up into Google's results by chance.
With Rank Tracker's advanced operators, flaking off all "by chance" results and getting the most objective view of keyword competition is nothing more than a breeze.Read on how you do that in Rank Tracker->

What a great many of users ask for is a way to include or exclude certain keywords from Rank Tracker's ranking reports. Which is a gem of a feature whenever you need to build up a report for a thematic group of keywords, for instance.

See how compelling your pages are for visitors – track their Bounce rates
Traffic stats extracted from Google Analytics is the feature most Rank Tracker users take great advantage of. Yet the recently added Bounce rate tracking goes highly unnoticed and underestimated.
A page's bounce rate shows what percentage of your visitors are “bouncing” away after landing on the page (e.g., they just visit one page and leave before clicking on to a second page inside your site). Thus, you can find out how compelling your pages are for visitor and make sure your top ranking pages don't waste your hard-earned traffic because of being not conversive enough.
And here's how you analyze this key metric with Rank Tracker:
You can check out your pages' bounce rate stats in Rank Tracker's Traffic Reports. As these stats are extracted directly from Google Analytics, to enable the feature, you need to specify your Google Analytics account.
1. Enter your Google Analytics login information and choose the account and website profile to be used. (Switch here, to create a Google Analytics account)
You can do this in Preferences — > Google Analytics Account.
