How to see how a particular page ranks in SEMRush

SEMRush Landing Pages Report

For those of you used to another SaaS (software as a service) here is how you find how a particular page ranks in SEMRush. At first, you may think it is the report found by going to SEMRush Dashboard > Position Tracking > Pages. But this is not the case. The report on this page shows you what SEMRush finds that ranks on each page of your website.

The URL column displays the web address for each landing page listed in the report. But there’s really more to it – clicking on a URL will show you every keyword this particular page ranks for. You can also view the page itself by clicking on the arrow icon.

Next is the Keyword Count column. Here you can see the total number of keywords a particular landing page is ranking for.

The Average Position column shows the average position number for all keywords the page ranks for. Clicking on a particular URL will let you see the precise position of each keyword.

Finally, in the Total Volume column, you can view the sum of search volume for all keywords.

This report is VERY useful when cross-referenced with data from Google Search Console and Google Analytics. It gives you great ideas on what to rank for each individual page.

SEMRush The Other Report: Domain Analytics Overview

The report you may be looking for can be found at Domain Analytics > Overview. This tool can be used for more than just the TLD (top-level domain). If you type the page of a website there it will return all of the keyword phrases that particular page ranks for along with a slew of other information such as page authority, traffic, pay-per-click ads, backlinks, traffic trends (with notes), competitors, etc.

So if the Landing Pages Report does not show a page that you want to see what you rank on you can use this report instead. Enter the data here along with your Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Landing Page Report to cross-reference the information.

Once you enter the URL, keyword ranked on that URL, how hard it is to rank for each phrase, how much traffic you would get from each phrase from every source you can quickly look at the data and determine which keyword phrase to go for.

Unfortunately, you cannot enter a specific keyword phrase and a specific web page to find out how you rank, but you can go to where they use the API for SEMRush and do exactly that.

Here is an image of the cross-referenced data to give you an idea of what keyword phrase to try for at a glance.

How do you boost online sales without gaining more traffic?

You could utilize Amazon’s little invention that is a plugin in almost any shopping cart. Show ‘people who have bought this have also bought…’ products. You could also sell higher-priced quality products or sell niche industry products. Another thing you could do is show related products.

If you are worried about traffic then I would suggest going to another web host.

How can I increase traffic to my website without paying anything?

  • Promote it on social media.
  • Add your website to your business cards, invoices, newsletters, etc.
  • Answer questions on places like this.
  • Give free seminars to educate the general population and ask them to visit your website for more detailed information.
  • Provide detailed information on your website on a regular basis.
  • Ask people on relevant, but not competitive, websites to link to you and start a link building partnership with them.
  • Create an article on how-to websites that link back to your website.
  • Join forums and discussions answering questions without selling yourself helping people.
  • Create a useful much-needed tool on your website that people will want to use and link to.

There are many ways to do this. The only problem is finding the time to do it.

What is the best way to get some traffic initially to a website?

It really depends upon what type of website you have in order to tell you which way would be the most effective for your particular type of website and business.

But, I start out all of my marketing clients by doing these four things.

  1. Create and optimize their Google My Business account.
  2. Create and optimize their business information through Moz Local.
  3. Create/Claim their Facebook Page.
  4. Hook up a Google Analytics account.

These three things combined will make your website and business more accessible to the public and increase your localized rankings by taking a NAP (name, address, phone).

Once you have these three things set up I would highly advise you using new online software that I currently use for all of my customers called DIIB.

DIIB provides an analysis of your website and combines the stats from the four steps I outlined above to give you easy step-by-step directions on what you need to do to bring more traffic to your website.

After that, I would write original content that helps your visitors that is related to your business/website. Then share your helpful content to social media accounts like Facebook, Google My Business, Instagram, etc.

This is the best starter/base way to initially drive traffic to your website. Then if you want to dig deeper than that I would need to know what type of website you have, what type of business you have, what your goal objectives are, etc. so that I could give you better specifics on how to do this.
