RankTank SERPitude SERP & Rich Snippet Testing Tool
RankTank SERPitude is a completely free desktop app with a ton of functionality, allowing you to examine SERP appearance and results in detail. Check your rich snippet indexation and content, see which results have image thumbnails, check for title and description issues, and see what things look like LIVE in Google results! Best of all, you can export all of this data and open it up in your favorite spreadsheet application.
Current version: BETA v1.0.1
Read the instruction manual!
NOTE: On the Windows version, the SERPitude Libs folder must remain with the application. Don’t move the app without moving that folder too!
- Get SERPs by domain, keyword, advanced search query, or any combination of those!
- For each search result, SERPitude pulls out Result Number, Type, Title, URL, Rich Snippet Content, Date, Indexed Description, Star Count, Number of Ratings, Image Thumbnail Existance, Truncated Title, and Truncated Description. Heck yes!
- Handles huge sites with 100’s of indexed pages… just keep clicking the “Add next 100 results” button!
- SERP Overview panel has graphs to show rich snippet indexation level, truncated title level, and truncated description level.
- SERP preview panel shows the SERP item exactly as it appears on Google!
- You can search within the results from right within SERPitude
- Oh yeah, you can EXPORT EVERYTHING into a tab delimited spreadsheet, which opens right up in Excel or Open Office!
Why am I giving this away for free? Meh, I made it for stuff I was working on, and I really love it. I hope you find it as useful as I do. It’s kind of like a super-duper desktop version of the rich snippet testing Google Doc that Bill Sebald originally helped me with 🙂
How to Use This Thing
It’s pretty simple. You can search by Domain and/or Query (including advanced Google queries). Let’s break it down real quick with screenshots.
1. Open the app, and enter your search queries
When you first open the app, you’ll see that I’ve set the domain to food.com and the query to inurl:recipe so you can see how it works.
Let’s go ahead an hit Run the query and see how this thing works. You’ll also note that you can change the Google country version as well.
2. Add the next 100 results until you’ve got ’em all
You’ll notice that when we hit Run the query, we load up to the first 100 results. Need more than that? Hit Add next 100 results to append the next 100 results to the list. You can keep doing this until you’ve got everything that Google’s gonna give!
You can tell you’re out of results when the text of the Add next 100 results button changes to All indexed results found.
3. Analyze the data!
You can now do a lot of cool stuff within the app to analyze the SERP data.
For example, you can sort the columns by clicking on the column headers. Try clicking on the Rich Snippet Contentto see all of the results with indexed rich snippets!
The bottom-left box has a number of things you can do. You can even search within the results by Title, URL or Domain! Simply click Search in Results.
4. Export the data!
If you’ve taken a look at the rest of the site, I’m an Excel and Google Doc nerd at heart. Use the Export Data button to export everything into a tab-delimited spreadsheet which can be opened in Excel or Open Office!
What about CAPTCHAs?
We’ve got CAPTCHAs covered.
If Google throws up a captcha, we pop the CAPTCHA up in a native HTML browser window enclosed in the app. That way it’s seamless, and Google knows you’re a real live person.
