  • Track concrete improvements over time with the OnPage Score, and use this to show quantifiable success to stakeholders. The OnPage Score is visible on the project dashboard.

Website Success is the key to ensuring your website’s technical quality, allowing for regular comprehensive SEO audits, monitoring key KPIs, and showing concrete improvements to stakeholders.

Search Success

Search Success helps you to monitor, analyze and optimize your search performance, giving you the insights you need to rank highly in search engines.

To get the most out of Search Success, first connect your Ryte project with your Google Search Console property, which you can do easily with one click. Unlimited GSC data storage, advanced filters, and keyword data from 249 countries means you get more data and more analytical capabilities than the GSC alone.

Search Success Dashboard

Keep track of key search KPIs on the Search Success Dashboard:

  • Your Google visibility is displayed as an overlay graph. See clicks, impressions, CTR, position and number of keywords you’re ranking for. Thanks to unlimited data storage, you can see a year-on-year comparison to easily track improvements over time.

  • Get an overview of your weekly traffic value with the traffic monetization feature. Enter an average CPC value for your keywords, and see the concrete monetary value of your traffic, ideal for persuading stakeholders of the importance of SEO. (Find out more in this article.)

  • Track progress over time with the Search Success score. Based on CTR and rankings, the Search Success score also gives you a gauge of how your search performance compares to that of your competitors.

Keyword alerts

Choose a subset of keywords that you want to keep a close eye on and add these to the keywords monitoring dashboard. Set up keyword alerts to get an email alert when a keyword loses or gains in clicks, CTR, impressions or position. Find more information about keyword alerts in this article.

Advanced filters

The reports in Search Success are split into categories:

You can add advanced filters to every report. You can filter according to dimensions (keyword, page, country, device) and metrics (clicks, impressions, CTR, or position). For example, you want to identify underperforming keywords in English speaking markets:

  1. Set a filter for keywords ranking on page 1 of the Google Search results (i.e. set a filter for position less than 10)

  2. Add a filter for CTR less than 5%

  3. Add a filter for countries UK and US

Use any filter combination you want to get the best analytical capabilities possible.


Create keyword and page segments to specifically analyze a subset of data. For example, you could create a keyword segment for a particular keyword group (e.g. all keywords related to mobile optimization), or a page segment for the subset of pages that your department is responsible for. Use these segments as advanced filters in all reports. Find out more about segments in this article.


Easily analyze a drop in your traffic with this report. See which keywords have lost or gained clicks/impressions/CTR/rankings compared to a previous period. This is particularly useful after a Google update to see which specific URLs or keywords have been affected the most.

Search Success is one of the best tools out there for analyzing organic search performance. With more capabilities than the Google Search Console user interface, you can identify optimization potentials and risks much more quickly than in any other tool.

Content Success

Content Success helps you create new content for your target group, and helps you to optimize existing content. With the Basic Suite account, you can use 200 analyses per month, compared to just 10 with the free account.

Content Success is based on TF*IDF. The TF*IDF formula provides an overview of terms that other websites which rank for a certain keyword use on their page. It therefore gives you a helpful idea of what the user intent for a particular search query is. Content Success is split into 2 parts:

Keyword suggestions

Keyword suggestions help you find important keywords for a topic. (In the free account, you are limited to just 10 keywords; in the Basic Suite account you get unlimited keywords.) We analyze results from top ranking websites across the major search engines and our content data corpus to identify the most relevant keywords. These are the keywords that have the highest average TF*IDF score.

Content Editor

The Content Editor is for optimizing and improving your written content. It provides suggestions regarding what keywords you should add or remove, and can either be used for improving a finished text, or for providing ongoing suggestions whilst creating your content.

Expert Tips

  • Optimize your content creation process with Content Success. Use keyword recommendations to find topic inspiration, then find out what keywords you should add with the Content Editor. Get more advice in this article.

  • Use TF*IDF Competition to help you create better and more relevant content than your competitors

  • Utilize the schema.org integration in the Content Editor to give your content some extra context. Add your schema.org tag, and this will be integrated into the source code when you export your content to html.
