Yet another year has come and gone and with it one of the most dynamic years in SEO report and tool creation here at Rank Ranger. 2018 was all about offering you a new way to navigate search data. That meant we sat down and reflected on some of the things being said within the SEO community about where
search is heading and created an array of new tools to help your site flourish in a new
Without further adieu, here are the highlights from Rank Ranger's year in SEO & digital marketing reporting!
What would our recent release of beta reports (or Beta Blitz as we refer to them) be without something crafted specifically for all you local SEO? That's rhetorical questions, by the way!

Performing a technical site audit doesn't really have to be all that intimidating. To ensure it isn't we went ahead and created an all-new Site Audit Report aimed at simplifying the barrage of data normally associated with technical SEO audits. Here's how to use our new Site Audit to gain straightforward, clear-cut, helpful, and emboldening technical analysis and insights (so that you can breathe easier the next time you need to do a site audit).
Things have changed so drastically in the world of SEO that we reached a tipping point that made us ask, how could we best serve the needs of the industry in this new world of search? So, we enhanced all sorts of reports to give you insights that would help you day in and day out. But it wasn't enough. It wasn't drastic. It didn't offer a new way to provide SEO insight, a way that matched this new
ranking environment. So we returned to the drawing board and came up with a set of new reports to track rank and site performance in all-new ways.
Now we're testing the waters in what we're calling Beta Blitz!
Back in August, we released a slew of widgets that made analyzing your Google Analytics data easier than ever. We've been busy since then creating all-new widgets for all-new purposes with one common theme: to make showcasing comprehensive SEO and marketing data within white label reports as simple as possible. Here's a look at what we've been up to as far as widget development is concerned.

In fine Rank Ranger tradition, there are numerous and highly customizable ways to dig into your Google My Business data. Let's go for a tour!

Email marketing is not dead. Far from it, email marketing is an integral part of any marketing plan. If done right, pushing your brand, service, or product via an email campaign can score big payoffs ranging from increased sales to increased brand awareness and authority. That said, email campaign effectiveness hinges on learning what went right, as well as what went wrong, during an email campaign. To give you the ability to track your email effectiveness we were set on integrating a series of automated email marketing platforms into Rank Ranger. We looked at a whole heap of platforms and narrowed our integration partners down to Constant Contact, AWeber, and MailChimp.
