7 June: Find the SERP features history chart in the Overview, Ranking history, and Competitors Overview reports. Hover over the chart to see details and track any Ahrefs and Google updates.

30 May: You can now use AI to translate a saved keyword list into various languages and dialects. Just open any saved keyword list and click on the Translate button, select a language and location, and hit translate.

 
30 May: Find two new charts in Site Explorer’s Overview > Competitors mode: Share of Voice, which shows your target’s organic search market share over time as compared to the competitors you’ve specified. Plus Share of Traffic Value, which shows the same but instead of traffic, it focuses on the total paid cost of that traffic.

29 May: Use the IndexNow setting in Site Audit to instantly notify search engines about important content changes on your website. Just go to your Crawl settings and specify your IndexNow API key, then go to Page Explorer and filter for the URLs you want to submit and click the IndexNow button. Learn about IndexNow

28 May: Analyze up to one thousand targets at once with Batch Analysis 2.0. Use the country picker at the top to see data for a specific location, or export your data into a CSV file.

16 May: Find new widgets in your GSC Overview report:

  • Top keywords
  • Top keyword changes
  • Low hanging fruit keywords, which shows you the most popular keywords where your target’s ranking position is between 4 and 15
  • Potential cannibalization, which shows you keywords with multiple ranking URLs
  • Top pages
  • Top page changes

3 May: There’s a new Calendar view in Page inspect that shows you the history of page changes over time. The darker the color, the more content changes were made on a page that day.

Also, when comparing SERPs in Site Explorer, Keywords Explorer and Rank Tracker, you can now see the actual text of a featured snippet and compare how it changed over time.

27 April: Just released: our first Rank Tracker APIv3 endpoint for Overview 2.0. As always, you can use the API button in the report itself to create request URLs for filters you’ve applied. Requests to this endpoint are free and do not consume units. Read API documentation

18 April: Local keyword research in Keywords Explorer just got easier. Cluster common keyword ideas by Parent Topic for these locations:

  • Brunei Darussalam
  • Hong Kong
  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Taiwan
  • Trinidad Tobago
  • Vietnam

Keywords Explorer clusters for CJK languages

We’ve also added two more use cases in Site Explorer’s Opportunities report.

  • Potential cannibalization helps you spot opportunities to avoid targeting the same keyword with multiple pages 
  • Descriptive anchors helps you replace generic anchor text

And our last update for the day: you can now compare between any Site Audit crawls. Before, you could only compare a crawl with its previous crawl.

17 April: The Lowest DR filter is now also in Site Explorer’s Organic keywords report. It makes it easier to spot opportunities where you can rank with a low-DR website by letting you filter through high-difficulty keywords where a “weak” website ranks at the top.

4 April: This one’s for all of you who still haven’t found what you’re looking for~*~ in Rank Tracker’s GSC report, at least. Now you can just use this URL filter 😉

 

3 April: You can now export data directly from all Site Explorer and Keywords Explorer reports to Google Sheets. Just link your Google account and allow permissions.

 

1 April: Fresh out the oven on Keywords Explorer’s Overview: search type distribution! See the percentage of searches for a keyword that go to web, image, video, and news, and optimize content you create for the format that searchers prefer. 

24 March: Site Explorer’s Calendar report just had its final evolution with the Backlinks tab. Watch it in action:

 

22 March: We’ve got two new metrics in Keywords Explorer, and a nifty video to show them off.

 

21 March: It’s an APIv3 updates kind of day. 

First, our keywords history endpoint now supports the select query parameter and more ranking groups (top 11-20, 21-50, and 51+.) This finer segmentation lets you do quicker updates for keywords with ranking potential.

Also, you can now fetch outgoing link counts and optimize them at scale with our new Outlinks stats endpoints. This was requested only about a million times 😉 Read documentation
