  • interface language;
  • depth of scanning.

You can also disable or delete location or search engine altogether, and export or import locations.

How to change settings of SE and locations

  2. Clickon the toolbar.
  3. PressSearch engines and locations in the drop‑down list.

How to change device type

Desktop and mobile rankings may be different. For example, if you're searching for something on your phone, you may want more local results because you're on the go. You can check rankings in the mobile SERP of Yandex and Google.

To change devices, click on one of the icons and select the necessary one.

To check rankings in both mobile and PC SERP, add one location several times ✨
If you add a location that is already in a project, it will be automatically added with different device type.

How to change interface language

In Google, Bing, and Yahoo, as well as on YouTube, App Store and Google Play, you can change a language used in SERP.

To change language, click on selected language and select the new language from the list.

I changed language and my check history is gone! What should I do?
A location with a different language is considered as a different location, so if you change the language, you'll see a check history in the location with a selected language. Change language again to see history with an old language — it will be loaded automatically.

To check rankings in the same location with different languages, for example, Toronto/Eng and Toronto/Fr, add location several times and select desired languages. When you add a location that is already in a project, it is automatically added with a different device.

Depth of parsing

Depth of parsing
The number of documents (URLs) the robot will check. For example, if you select the depth of 200, the robot will check the first 200 URLs and search among them for the URL you specified.

The maximum depth in Google — 1000, in Yandex, PC SERP — 250, Yandex, mobile SERP — 50.

How to disable or delete SE and locations

Turn off a search engine or location to suspend checks on them. You can turn them on any time.

If you disable or delete a search engine or location, you won't see the history for it in Rank Tracker. To display history again, enable or add deleted locations to a project. Check history will be loaded automatically.

How to export or import SE and locations

  1. Go toSettings.
  2. Move toSearch engines.
  3. Click on Import or Export.

You can load search engines and locations into a project from a file. This will come in handy if you need to add many locations.

You can also export SE and locations from one project and load them into another. But it is easier to copy a project: SE and locations are copied automatically. How to copy a project →
