User Interface improvements
We are excited to share our progress with the latest update of the Advanced Web Ranking interface.
A more condensed, cleaner, and lighter look, will make it easier to slide through the tasks you are focusing on.
Here's what we changed:
  • Rearranged the top bar, now combining the logo section and projects list drop-down
  • The date picker moved up to the inputs bar, on the right, becoming a static component in all reports
  • Merged exporting options under one button
  • New "add" inputs button, so you maintain focus on the report you're at
  • Added visual tabs for sliding through the available display views of the same UI section
  • Redesigned the table settings button and moved it to the right-hand side
- Added sticky elements, such as the inputs bar, date picker & table header, to work easier with large datasets or sophisticated dashboards.
Plus, there are a bunch of other minor changes designed to improve your workflow.

Introducing a new position tracking model for universal search results
As SERP layouts continue to change, SEOs need to understand the visual placement of a result on the page and its relation to other results on that page.
In our position tracking, we are changing from counting each external link as one position to counting each element with external links as one position.

Featured Snippets are now reported as Organic results
Google's Danny Sullivan has confirmed that webpages which will be listed as ranking with a featured snippet will no longer be repeated on the first page of results.
