Keyword difficulty score is now available in Rank Tracker

The new Keyword Difficulty tool in Rank Tracker allows one to factor in all the key parameter and to assess keyword competition with a push of a button.

Marketing software developer Link-Assistant.Com has introduced a new metric - Keyword Difficulty score - to its keyword monitoring tool, Rank Tracker. The new feature is aimed at facilitating SEO niche research: it lets marketers see at a glance how hard it would be to rank on Google for particular keywords.

Thorough competition research is performed by scrutinizing top 10 sites ranking for each search term. This is done before an SEO specialist begins fine-tuning a website for certain keywords. Each competitor is analyzed against an extensive set of SEO metrics such as their on-page SEO tactics, backlink profile, domain factors, and more.

The Keyword Difficulty score formula

Link-Assistant.Com does not disclose the exact formula used to calculate the new Keyword Difficulty metric. However, it mentions certain key ingredients Rank Tracker takes into account to provide the score:

  • A competitor’s Google PageRank (page- and domain-level)
  • The number of backlinks a competitor has (page- and domain-level)
  • A competitor’s on-page optimization rate
  • A competitor’s Alexa Rank
  • A competitor’s social signals
  • The age of a competing page, etc.

To assess the Difficulty score for one keyword, Rank Tracker singles out top 10 websites and analyzes each one of them.
