  5. Periodic analysis of keywords is important to understand where your site is in the search rankings. There is a list of words that Google Search Console shows and of course you need to analyze this information. But the problem is that GSC shows a list of words that have at least 1 impression for the requested period. As a rule, search engine users do not view more than 10 or 20 first results. And therefore, if the position of your resource, for example, 85th, then you are unlikely to see it in GSC, because there are no impressions. In this case, you will not see the dynamics of the rise or fall of the keyword's rating, for example, from 85 to 54 or 120 position.
    Our recommendation is that you need to identify 5-10 keywords that are important for the business of the site and do a periodic check of their positions. This will allow you to understand the positions of these important words. Under certain conditions, these words will get to the GSC, because they will have shows.
  6. "Competitor Analysis" for the same 5-10 important keywords. The analysis itself will not directly improve your position, but it is mandatory. The information obtained from the analysis will allow you to understand exactly how to draw up all of the above plans. After evaluating the main parameters of sites that were able to get into the top of the search engine, it will be clearer for you what you need to strive for. How much content you need to place on your website, what indicators of social networks it is desirable to arrive at, how many donors and donor links you need. By distributing in time the difference between the figures of the "tops" and yours, you will get quite clear plans of action. Seo4Boss' competitor analysis' '

View how many publications and subscribers in all social networks. View the number of donors and their links. Technical audit.
