Recently Google removed its search location filter, the source for local ranking data in most rank tracking tools; to get the local ranking data back to Rank Tracker, Link-Assistant.Com developers have introduced a completely new system of sending localized queries to Google.

Our approach is about automating Chrome's location emulation mode and sending the exact GPS coordinates. We search for results in the exact city, not "near" it and check rankings for any city and town one sees on Google Maps.

Link-Assistant.Com, the global leader in online marketing software, announced a breakthrough addition to their Rank Tracker tool, part of SEO PowerSuite.

First, local rank checks are back to Rank Tracker. Like in the majority of other rank checking tools, local rank checks have been recently discontinued in Rank Tracker after Google removed its search location filter. However, the team managed to find a viable solution to restore the feature.

Second, the restored local ranking data in Rank Tracker is even more accurate than it used to be. Thanks to the query sending system based on the GPS location, Rank Tracker users can now check accurate rankings for any country, city or even street address.

“In a nutshell, our approach is about automating Chrome’s location emulation mode and sending the exact GPS coordinates. This solves two main problems all the other tools currently have. First, we search for results in the exact city, not “near” it, which happens when using the “near” URL parameter. Second, we can check rankings for any city and town one sees on Google Maps, not for the limited number I Search From, Moz toolbar, and other tools based on uule get-parameter allow,” explains Aleh Barysevich, CMO and Co-Founder, Link-Assistant.Com.

One of the four tools in SEO PowerSuite toolkit, Rank Tracker is professional software for keyword research and rank checking. In addition to the breakthrough feature announced today, Rank Tracker’s core functions include:

  • automatically checking rankings in 325 search engines,
  • showing if a site moved up or down in search results,
  • suggesting the right keywords based on a variety of performance metrics,
  • local rankings, universal search results, multiple results for keywords.

More information about tracking localized Google rankings is available at Link-Assistant.Com’s official website. The local rankings feature, as well as the rest of functionality, can be tried out for free with Rank Tracker free edition.
