Site Monitoring

Controlling the monitoring of position on Search Engines

Search Engine Position Settings

The dialog lets you enter the settings for search engine position monitoring.

You first should tick the search engines to be scanned. If the search engine you want to scan is not present in the list you can email us to request that it is added to the list. You can download any extra definitions without reinstalling the product. Search Engines change all the time and our definitions need to be frequently updated to reflect this, please contact us by e-mail if the definitions seem not to be working.

You then need to specify how many search positions to look through for the site, the software will automatically scan the pages needed to scan that number of site entries.

The keyphrase or keyword is what a user would type in as a search phrase and can be one or more words. If you want to check for multiple keyphrases you can do that by separating each keyphrase with a ',' or ';'.

The next fields control when you will be alerted of changes to the position of the site. The first field controls how many places a site will move (up or down) before an alert is raised, so a value of one will alert on each change. The second criterion is what to do if the site is not found in the top positions, this will generate an alert whenever the site is outside this group. You can set up an individual alert scheme to tell you about the change.

Site Vigil can keep archive copies of previous scan results so you can see the changes of all web sites over time. Select the number of scan results you would like to keep from the drop-down list.

Finally you need to select an alert scheme to use when an alert is raised, you can devise a special alert for any particular web site.
