Organizing URLs in Static Groups
Groups are like folders for your URLs. They provide an easy way to organize your URLs that belong together.
There are two types of groups in Ranktrackr:
- Static groups,
- Dynamic groups.
In this article, we will only cover static groups as they are the most basic unit for URL organization. You can find out more about Dynamic Groups here: Organizing URLs in Dynamic Groups.
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 create URLs there or simply drag and drop the URLs you would like to move from other 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 the same URL in multiple groups, you should use Dynamic 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.
When you delete a group, the URLs assigned to the group won't be deleted but 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.
