Getting Started With Your Squirrly Business Plan

Let’s see what you can do now that you have the Business Plan.

Welcome to Business! This short guide will help you get started with your Squirrly SEO Business account by providing a quick tour of the Rankings section in Squirrly.

Start by refreshing the wp-admin to see new data.

Squirrly will identify keywords that you’ve used in your articles.

As opposed to OTHER solutions, Squirrly SEO will know exactly what you’ve already used and place data in automatically. You’ll not waste any more time with manual labor for this part of SERP checking.

You can also add new keywords for which you want to monitor the Rankings. I’ll show you how to do it; it’s very easy.

In the Google Rankings section, click on Add Keywords

You will be taken to the Research section of the plugin. From here, you can start researching keywords and then add them to your Briefcase. 

To add a keyword to Briefcase, just click on Add to Briefcase from the Keyword Research results. (as shown in the screenshot below)

Once your keywords are in Briefcase, you can easily add them to the Rankings section. 

Go to Briefcase, and then click on the three dots next to keyword info. Click on Send to Rank Checker. 

This will automatically let Squirrly know it should begin tracking the ranking for that keyword.

Next up, we’ll talk more about how you can easily keep track of your rankings using the Business Plan.

Once you’ve added keywords, you will start to see your TRUE Google position for those keywords in the Rankings section.

You can also choose to remove keywords. Once you do that, Squirrly will no longer monitor the Google Rankings of that keyword. You’re basically telling Squirrly NOT to waste precious Business Level queries on useless keywords.

Click on Rank details to see powerful performance analytics.

Squirrly updates the best ranks for each keyword daily and also shows you the Average Ranking of your site for that particular day. You can see that the site I’ve used for this tour ranks #13 on average with pages and keywords.

Squirrly also shows you the total number of SERP changes, meaning you can see how many pages have had changes in their ranking that day. 

For the site used for this example, there are 24 ranking changes that happened recently.

If you click on that arrow, Squirrly will only show you the pages and keywords that either went up or down in SERPs.

Then, once you’ve studied the changes, choose to see all ranks again by clicking on Show All.


Green means UP. Red means DOWN. And Squirrly also shows you how many positions it went up or down.

Plus, you can compare the Current Rank with the best Rank achieved.

Squirrly also lets you refresh the Ranking information on demand by clicking on Check Ranking again. 

Keep in mind that refreshing the information uses up your available queries for the SERP checker.

Now, I want to show you one more thing here.

If you look at the bottom of the screenshot below, you’ll see 108 items that could be ranked.  If I click on 19, however, it will show me only the keywords that this site currently ranks for now.

Let’s talk about your settings and the customization options.

In the Ranking section, click on Settings

Here, you can select the country for which you want Squirrly to check the Google Rank. If you choose, for instance, Squirrly will only check your ranks for Germany.

By default, this is set to You can leave it as it is if most of your audience uses (Global Search). If you run a local business, however, customizing this section can be particularly useful.

Click on Save Settings to save your desired setup (you can come back and change your preferences later on).

Better options and more customizations will appear once you pay for the Business Plan.

During the Business Plan trial mode, Squirrly API will bring your ranking information for a limited number of Queries/day. Many more when you buy.

You get a lot of options to customize how you want them used.

There’s a lot of stuff you can control.

Now, that was the quick guide.

Pam Pam!

Before you head out, though, here’s a look at the Squirrly Dashboard (which you can access by clicking on Overview).

As you can see from the screenshot below, Squirrly also offers you precious stats about your rankings in the Progress & Achievements section. 

So, make sure to keep an eye on this as well – so that you’ll never miss out on good news. 

You’ve Made it to the End of This Guided Tour

Now you should feel more comfortable exploring the new capabilities that you’ve unlocked by upgrading to a Squirrly SEO Business plan.

Use this information to begin tracking your first keywords using Squirrly’s advanced SERP checker and analyze the ranking data to make smart moves moving forward.

Squirrly SEO Business plan looked like an investment that may help improve my rankings even more. So, I decided to pull the trigger on it, and I have to say it was the best money I’ve ever spent. Now I can use all the features that guide me to the top of Google. I can’t wait to see more of my pages appear on the first page of Google.

I have been using Squirrly for some time now, but I never clicked on that arrow in the ranking section. I didn’t even know that arrow is clickable. It’s good to know that clicking that Squirrly will show me the pages and keywords that either went up or down in SERPs. Very useful!

So, if I have a local business I should set up the ranking settings for my google country in order to see the rankings that can really help my business? I didn’t know that. I checked the rankings section pretty often but had no idea that it was set to global search.

Hi, Anne! Thanks for the comment. In Rankings>Settings, you can select the Country for which Squirrly will check the Google rank. By default, this is set to: This option is important if you have a local business and want to check how the keywords perform in your Country. You can also select the Language for which Squirrly will check the Google rank. More about Rankings in Squirrly here.
