Organizing URLs in Groups
Groups are like folders for your URLs. They provide an easy way to organize your URLs that belong together.
There are 2 type of groups:
- Static groups,
- Virtual groups.
In this article we will only cover static groups as they are the most basic unit for URL organization.
Creating a Group
To create a group, follow the next steps:
- Click "Create group" in the bottom-left corner of the sidebar,
- Enter the group name in the modal window (leave the static group option enabled),
- Click "Save".
After the last step, a new empty group will be created and will be shown in the left sidebar. To put the URLs in it, you can move drag and drop the URLs between the groups. By default 2 groups are created: Google and Youtube group. Each group has its own type based on the search engine used for the first URL assigned to the group. A group can only contain URLs tracked on the same search - so Youtube group will only contain videos tracked on Youtube, Google will only contain URLs tracked on Google and so on.
One URL can only belong to one static group. If you want to have same URL in multiple groups, you should use Virtual Groups.
Deleting a Group
You can delete a group by following the next steps:
- Select a group by clicking on it,
- Click "Configure" in the bottom-left corner of the sidebar,
- Click "Delete group" in the group modal window.
It is important to note that when you delete a group the URLs assigned to the group won't be deleted, but rather than that just moved the default group according to the group search engine type.
Good organization practice
A good organization practice would be to group together all URLs or websites for the same client or the same niche. Client organization approach is also used for sharing the access to your client's sub-users that you can manage on agency accounts.
