Aliases can be used to add other URLs or domains to treat them as if they were a part of your main site for rank tracking.

This is great for tracking the performance of your content that lives on other platforms (such as Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, Yelp, etc.) or bundling multiple TLDs together (e.g. to treat both example.com and example.co.uk as the same site).

How it works

For example, for all the following TLD versions of a site on one campaign:

Or Twitter, Facebook, Yelp business page, or even youtube videos from your brand:

By adding them as Site Aliases, when they rank on any keywords in your campaign, you'll see them show as ranked just like any URLs under your campaign site.

Example

Consider a campaign set up with the main site, yoursite.com, and site aliases of the following:

  • youtube.com/watch?=2Ox6hx

  • yoursite.co.uk

  • facebook.com/yourbrand

Any of the site aliases rank on the keywords will be shown just like the main site is ranking on the keywords in the ranking reports.

Where to add Site Aliases

In Quick Start Wizard or Campaign Settings, you can set up the site aliases for your campaign.

Quick Start Wizard

During campaign setup, at the Site Aliases page, you can add site aliases by Quick Add or Upload from File.

Campaign Settings

For existing campaigns, go to Campaign Settings > Site Aliases and you can start adding site aliases by Quick Add or Upload from File.

Quick Add

After clicking the Quick Add button, you'll see a popup that lets you enter site aliases (one per line).

After you're done, click + Add Aliases.

Site aliases are added with the automatically detected site scopes. The scope will determine which URLs should be included for rank tracking for each site alias.

Therefore, it is important to double-check the scope for each site alias and ensure you won't be tracking irrelevant URLs.

Use the dropdown under the Scope column to update the site scope for each site alias.

Upload from File

After clicking the Upload from File button, you'll see a popup that lets you download the template.

Click Download template and open the .csv file.

In the template, you can enter the site aliases and their site scope.

Note: The “Scope” field is optional. If omitted, it will try to automatically detect scope and set it for each entered site.

After completing the template, click Upload aliases and upload the completed template.

The site aliases with their site scope will be added to the table. You can now check and update the site scope for each site.

Use the dropdown under the Scope column to update the site scope for each site alias.
