AuthorityLabs Now Has AdWords Volume Data and a New API

We have been hard at work on several new features here at AuthorityLabs. We take all customer requests into consideration. When those requests make sense based on our current road map, we do what we can to make sure they are implemented and improve everyone’s experience.

AdWords Volume Data Now Available

Exact match data from AdWords is now being displayed in the volume column of our interface. This is the same data that you would see in the Keyword Planner tool and will be updated regularly. These volume metrics, coupled with ranking data and our universal result reporting are key to determining campaign priorities. Sign in or sign up and check it out.

API Access for Enterprise Accounts

We know that API access for our interface accounts is something many of you have shown interest in and now it’s here! All paid Enterprise accounts can request access to this new API. Documentation can be found at http://docs.authoritylabs.apiary.io/. If you would like to get started, contact us and we will enable the API on your account.

 

Grouping and Syncing Domains on Authority Labs

Grouping and Syncing are two great features that have been released with our new interface. These are options that are especially helpful for accounts with multiple domains. Grouping is used to organize the domains, while Syncing is used for concatenating keywords across more than one domain.

Grouping Domains

Grouping domains will allow you to perform actions to multiple domains in that group. You can group domains together by clicking the check box next to the domains. Select two or more domains and you will see the domain actions panel on the left of your screen. Check out our support page for a full video tutorial on how to group domains.

step1

You will have the option to Group, Ungroup or Delete those domains. Click “Group” and those domains will then be lumped together on the dashboard from then on. You also have the option to name the group. I named mine “Shopping”, and it’s as simple as that.

Syncing Domains

After grouping your domains you have the option to sync them. When the domains are synced so are the keywords. So anytime you add or delete keywords in a synced group it will be reflected in each domain in that group. Check out our support page for a full video tutorial on how to sync domains.

step3_001

NOTE: To unsync your domains click on the syncing button again so that it turns from green to grey.

step4_syncing

An awesome aspect of syncing a group is that you get to compare the domains in the group. This comes in handy when you’re trying the track out a domain preforms in different city.

To navigate to this option just click on the group name.

syncing_comparing2

Here I am able to compare keywords for Olive Garden in Orlando, Phoenix and other cities or zip codes. But, you can also compare competing domains with this option, as long as they are in the same synced group.

How These Options Can Help You

Grouping can help organize your domains, whether you use this to group similar domains, competing domains, or even the same domain in different locations. Syncing will allow you to concatenate all keywords over multiple domains. It also allows you to compare multiple keyword rankings across the domains in the group. I would highly recommend syncing and grouping some of your domains.

Syncing domains: A quick product update

Thanks to everyone who gave us feedback on the syncing feature. Based on your feedback we have updated the sync functionality to be a bit clearer on what exactly is happening there.

The checkboxes and sync button on a domain level was causing a lot of confusion and didn’t exactly represent the functionality. As a result, syncing has been moved to the group level and is a simple toggle switch. Green means go… or on… or in this case, sync. While gray on gray means syncing is not enabled and the group is just a regular group.

The Old Busted Joint (context):

  1. Click checkboxes
  2. Click Sync old-busted-sync
  3. Cross your fingers

New Hotness:

  1. Group your domains
  2. Click the sync icon to the left of the group name so the icon is green
    Before After
  3. Confirm, and enjoy a cool beverage in celebration.

Okay, maybe just smile a little because we also backgrounded the syncing process so that if you have a lot of keywords to sync, it doesn’t lock up your browser. However, when a sync is happening the domains in the syncing group will be unavailable until it is finished to avoid any conflicts.

Thanks again for the feedback, and as always, if you have issues or feedback click the support link in the app and let us know.
