Managing the SEO metrics

Next to the URLs, you can see the metrics. Select the ones you’re interested in by clicking on the blue button in the top-right corner “Manage metrics“.

Manage metrics

Once you click, a pop-up window appears. Tick the ones you would like to have in the report and hit “Done”. There are short explanations of what each metric represents.

In the screenshot below, there’s the default metrics screen. All values are colored so we can easily identify what’s behind the numbers. Green color represents a low value while red means high.

SERP features analysis

We also display SERP features such as featured snippets, answer boxes, related searches, carousels, image packs and tens of other enhanced results in SERPChecker.

You’ll see them both in the results table and in the Snapshot preview depending on their actual visual position. All SERP features appearing in the SERP are listed in the row above the results table.

Besides the results table, you can switch the view to “Snapshot” to see the representation of the actual SERP.

Here’s what it looks like:

SERP features and enhanced results are more visually appealing than the generic organic search results. They can significantly influence the organic results engagement.

We have 3 useful indicators to help you estimate the impact:

  1. SERP Features Impact measures the possible impact of SERP features on organic results engagement on a scale from 1 to 5. The higher is the impact, the lower is the engagement.
  2. Visibility of each organic search result (including SERP features) above the page fold measured using the most common screen resolution.
  3. CTR based on the benchmark data; the actual CTRs may be affected by SERP features.

Compare box

With this feature, you can easily compare your website with any of the competitors in Google SERP.

Enter your domain or URL, drag the Compare row where you need and find out how you stand.

Export/save as image

In case you plan to save your analysis results, just click on the blue button in the top-right corner “Export results” and download a CSV file. You can also save the whole SERP snapshot as a png image.

You can export all the metrics or only the selected ones.
