  • Score: The Score column represents the overall strength of the domain. This is a legacy metric that is in use by some long-time customers based on their original requirements of a point system for rank positions 1, 2, 3 and 4 through 10, summed and divided by the total number of keywords selected for the report. Our Visibility Score replaced this old metric, however, we allowed the original score to remain for their use.

In the of field select one of the following options:

  • last
In the next field select one of the following options:

The selection must produce a logical date setting based on the PDF report's automated scheduling (at the bottom of the Report Details screen). For example:
  • last day of last month
  • 1st of this month
  • last day of last week
If the report is scheduled to be sent every Monday, then the following example would be invalid:
  • Saturday of this week (because weeks begin on Sunday and if reports are sent on Monday, then Saturday of this week hasn't yet occurred).
If the report is scheduled to be sent on the 1st day of every month, the following example would be invalid:
  • last day of this month (because it's only the 1st day of the month the report is being sent)
