Site Aliases let you track your content’s ranking, no matter where it lives on the web. Now you can track your Facebook profile, Twitter profile, YouTube channel, Yelp profile, or any other URL or site as if it were a part of your main site.

By default Dragon Metrics let you track a single root domain, subdomain, subfolder, or URL as “your site” in a campaign. This flexible solution works for traditional use cases, but over the years we’ve noticed there are use cases that fall outside of this.

For example:

  • My domain isn't ranking for a keyword, but my Facebook profile is.

  • My .com site is ranking for a keyword in the UK instead of my .co.uk site."

  • My YouTube video is ranking #1 for a keyword, but my site isn't found on the SERP.

  • etc.

In each of these situations, you could be thinking “That’s okay with me, but why does Dragon Metrics show that I’m not ranking for this keyword?"

Site Aliases fixes all of this by letting you upload a list of URLs and sites that should be treated exactly the same as if it were your main site ranking on the SERP.

How to add Site Aliases

Navigate to Campaign Settings > Site Aliases in the left navigation.

Upload from File

Click Quick add to paste in a list of URLs (one per line).

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.

You may want to double-check the scope for each site alias and ensure you won't be tracking irrelevant URLs.

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.
