What does the clock icon () mean in the position column?

The clock icon is shown when you first add a keyword. It specifies that the keyword has been added to the queue and will be checked soon. Usually it is updated within 5 minutes, but during peak hours it could take up to an hour.

What does an infinity character (∞) mean in the change column?

Infinity character means your website has either entered or left the top 100 positions. Anything over 100 is considered unknown and hence the infinity character.

What does the phone icon () mean in the search engine column?

What timezone is used in the last updated column?

All of the dates and times on the website are Eastern Standard Time Zone.

Notifications

How do I set up a notification?

First, go to the Notifications page and click on "Add Notification" button.

Then select whether you want the notification to track all of your websites or only the selected website.

Next, choose whether you want only email or SMS text notifications, or both.

And finally set up the notification rule by selecting the Type of notification and Threshold number.

Where are notifications delivered to?

Your notifications are delivered to the email or phone number you specified in your profile. If you are planning on using SMS text notifications, make sure you also select your mobile phone provider.

You may change those at any time by visiting the Profile page.

How many notifications can I have?

There is no set number of notifications you may create. But keep in mind that if you have too many notifications or if the threshold value is too low, you might be overwhelmed by notifications.

We recommend creating only one notification per website and using "Enters the top 10" and "Leaves the top 10" notification rules.

If we detect that you are getting an unreasonable amount of notifications, we will display a warning message and ask you to delete some of your notification rules.

You can check how many times each notification has been sent in the little orange bubble on the Notifications page.

Keep in mind that the more notification emails and text messages you receive, the more likely they are to be flagged as spam in the future by your email or mobile phone provider.
