Ranking Query

To see how your website is ranked by the different search engines, you can use the Query section. Please proceed as follows:

  1. Enter an URL into the field My URL(s) or select an already used URL from the list. Click Add to include the URL into your list. In addition, you can add URLs from the clipboard or scan an URL to add its links to the list as well.  

  2. Enter an URL into the field Competitor or select an existing URL from the list if you like to compare your website to that of one or more competitors. Then click Add. In addition, you can add URLs from the clipboard or scan an URL to add its links to the list as well.  

  3. Enter those keywords into the field Keywords which you would like to use for the query or select an already used keyword from the list.  In addition, you can add keywords from the clipboard or load them from a collection which you generated in the Keywords section. Afterwards, click Add.

  4. Select those Search Engines  from the list which you would like to query. Above the list you find the options to Check All search engines, to Uncheck All or to Invert Checks.  

  5. In the menu, determine a maximum number of matches that you would like to receive for the query and the maximum number of Threads, i.e. maximum number of parallel query executions.

  6. Click the Start Query button to start the query.

 

In the menu 'Query settings' you can specify the following options:

- Engine Friendly Mode - in this mode number of threads cannot exceeds 2 and maximum number of matches is limited to 50 entries. The process of query is intentionally slowdown in order to not harm the engines and make the query more similar to human input. Using this mode may prevent blocking your IP address by some search engines after massive querying.   

 

- Use Browser for Query - an internal hidden web browser window is used for querying making the results of query as close as possible to the results obtained by a user in Internet Explorer with default settings. This option is always applied when User Friendly Mode is set on.

 

- Check for exact URLs - when this option is set, the program will count only exactly matched URLs like http://www.mydomain.com/page1.html or http://www.mydomain.com/page2.html. If the option is not set, the program will count all pages, which belong to your domain http://www.mydomain.com/.
