WebMeUp is a promising new tool for SEO’s and those who would like to learn more about how their website is doing in search. Although it is in its infancy, it has a lot of great features to choose from and even more coming up. In this post, we’re going to look at how easy it is to set up your websites in the WebMeUp SEO Dashboard and learn about your rankings, backlinks, social mentions, and competitors.
Adding Your Websites
To get started, you will want to add your websites to the WebMeUp dashboard. First, you will click + Add Project and enter your website’s URL.
Then add your website’s keywords.
Then choose the search engines you want to check your website’s rankings on. Google, Bing, and Yahoo are standard – if you need a country-specific search engine, you can use the dropdown and find it.
That’s it! To add more websites, just add new projects. Once you’re finished, your projects summary page should look like this. Data for each site usually populates quickly depending on the size of the site.
Adding Your Competitors
Next, if you want to see how your site stacks up against other sites in your niche and see their backlinks, you will want to add them as competitors. To do so, go to your project summary screen (shown above) and select the website you want to add competitors to. Then click on Competitors on the left and then the + Add Competitor to add your competitor’s website.
Once you’re finished, your competitors summary page should look like this.
Reviewing Your Website’s Data
Now that you have all of your information in place, you can learn the following about your website by going to the projects section and clicking on your website.
Under the Project Dashboard for each of your websites, you’ll get an overview about your website’s Google ranking, social mentions, site structure, and number of indexed pages in the search engines you chose to monitor.
Further down, you can see your Alexa ranking compared to competitor’s you entered previously along with whether you are listed in DMOZ or Yahoo Directory. Plus you can see the most used anchor text for your website’s backlinks.
Under the Ranking Factors for each of your website, you can see more summarized information about your website. Each section includes everything from traffic stats (Alexa and Compete), backlink summary, indexed pages, social mentions, and basic domain info (how long you’ve owned it & load time. Beneath this information, you’ll see how your website stacks compared to your competitors for each of the above factors.
