Local results are counted in the rankings by default. It’s possible to ignore local results when uploading keywords. Read more in the ‘Ignore Local Results’ section below about how you can ignore local results.
Ignore Local Results
This option will change the way rankings are counted and displayed in AccuRanker.
Selecting this option may mean you get different results in AccuRanker than on the search engine result page (SERP). This is because when local results are ignored, AccuRanker will provide the organic rankings for results directly under the local pack.
Featured snippets are also counted in the rankings by default, but can also be ignored.
Ignore Feature Snippets
Similar to ignoring local results, ignoring featured snippets may mean your rankings in AccuRanker don’t reflect those on the SERP. This is because the software will start ranking from the first organic result, beneath the featured snippet.
Ignore in Share of Voice
Selecting this option means the keyword won’t be included in our Share of Voice metrics, often used for brand name keywords.
Google, Bing, Desktop, Mobile
AccuRanker lets you track keywords and see results for Desktop and Mobile, Google and Bing or any combination of these.
Choose the location you wish to target.
Page SERP Features in AccuRanker
AccuRanker offers the possibility to identify multiple SERP features, so you can better understand the search engine you are targeting.
Title Tag and Meta Description
The title tag and meta description displays the same information as shown on Google and Bing.
The preferred URL option allows you to see if search engines are sending traffic to the correct landing page for your target keyword. If not, you can change the URL to the preferred one to get a better understanding of how much traffic is coming to your landing page.

Update the data on all keywords at the click of a button. AccuRanker prides itself on speed and accuracy, so you’ll have the freshest data in no time.
AccuRanker also offers you the option to refresh individual keywords. You can do this by clicking the refresh icon on the far right of the individual keywords.
Rank and Visibility change over time
The green colour indicates a positive change in visibility and ranking, while red shows a negative change.
AccuRanker can also notify you if search engines have started indexing a different URL to your preferred one. You can see this with the chain link icons in Red or Green.
A red broken link indicates that Google has now begun indexing a different URL than the one preferred.
Green links mean that the preferred URL is being used to index your site’s pages.
