What's New at WooRank in October?
Google’s been busy lately with multiple algorithm updates and ranking fluctuations throughout September and into October. We’ve been busy here at WooRank as well, building products and features to help you keep your website at the top of search results.
Here’s what’s new at WooRank this month and what you can look forward to in the near future:
Track Keywords by Country
Keyword Tool has changed quite a bit the last few months, and this month is no different. Users can now track position changes in specific countries at the keyword level instead of the Project level.
This new feature is perfect for websites with international and/or multilingual audiences.
You can track keywords in different languages in different countries (Spanish keywords in Spain, French keywords in France, etc.), or track the same keyword in multiple countries (English keywords in the UK and Australia, for example).
All you need to do is enter your keyword in the "add keyword" popup and then select the country you want from the Google domain drop-down:
Then you just need to click the "Add" button to start tracking your keyword’s position in search results in that country.
We’ve also added the keyword’s country to your Project’s weekly Email Digest:
New Site Crawl Navigation
It’s now easier to navigate through your website’s Site Crawl data. You can easily access each section of Site Crawl using the left side navigation bar:
The crawler navigation will automatically expand after you click through to the crawler. The nested navigation makes it easier and faster to access, navigate and read the data collected by Site Crawl.
More Data in the API
We’ve added more website data surrounding mobile friendliness and backlinks from the WooRank Reviews into our API.
The new API data is:
Mobile font size: Is your website’s text big enough to read on mobile devices without needing to zoom in?
Mobile viewport: Does your website specify a page’s mobile viewport? If so, is it configured to display a page according to a device’s screen? The viewport is Google’s preferred method of creating a responsive website.
Backlinks score: What is the overall quality of a website’s backlink profile? Backlink score looks at all of the various signals that go into determining the quality of the links pointed at a website.
Referring domains: How many different domains are linking to a website? The diversity of referring domains plays a role in determining a site’s overall link portfolio quality.
Backlinks count: What is the total number of links pointed at a domain? While quality should be a priority over quantity, the number of links a website has still matters. Backlinks count is the number of links we could find for a website.
The WooRank API is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to automate website data collection for search engine optimization, marketing or sales efforts.

Website Review Updates
We’ve made a couple of changes to the way we collect and display website data in our Reviews and Projects.
As you might have noticed in the past few weeks, we’ve removed Mobile Speed and Speed Tips from Reviews. We’ve done this because we’ve itemized this data in the Usability and Mobile sections:
It didn’t make sense to double dip on this data.
New PDF Editor Updates
Our work on the new PDF Editor continues as we make more features available to our beta users. We've just made an exciting addition: a template's Keyword Tool section will now include a Project's ranking overview graph:
This is on top of the ranking data for individual keywords currently available in the templates.
Here’s a look at what we’ve got in the pipeline for WooRank customers.
Social media data updates
With the news that Google is going to shut down its Google+ social network, we’re going to be phasing out Google+ detection in Reviews and Projects.
However, at the same time, we’re also working on adding new social media networks to the Review.
Currently, we’re working on detecting and displaying data for the Instagram account associated with the analyzed website.
Soon users will be able to search for a specific Project or Review in their account using the Review generation bar in the WooRank header:
Clicking on the generation bar here show existing Reviews or Projects that match:
You will then be able to search for a particular Review or Project by typing the domain.
Have You Tried Them All Yet?
All of these features are available to WooRank customers in their Reviews, Projects or other tools. If you have any questions about accessing or using these new features, or any of the existing features, our Help Center is full of FAQs, guides and other resources on using WooRank to its fullest.
