Feature Alert: Default Countries, NZ & ZA Results, & Localized GOV & EDU Results
We’ve got three new “global” features, aka, our non-US customers will appreciate these the most.
1 – Default Countries
You can now set up a default country for Teams & Projects.
- When you add a default country to your entire Team, it will attach itself to each new Project you create
- When you add a default country to your Project, it will show up as the default country selection when you go to run new keyword reports.
Example settings for a New Zealand-based project.
So if your agency and most clients are based in Australia, go ahead and set up Australia as your Team’s default country. If you get a new client in the UK, set that Project’s default country as UK instead.
You can always override this for individual batches of reports, so it is possible for a team member to run reports for any country by changing it for that batch of reports.
3 – We added results for New Zealand and South Africa
We’re now up to 6 total countries available – all results are in English for each country:
Don’t worry we’ll alphabetize them someday.
2 – Localized GOV & EDU Results
When we pull Authoritative Sources from GOV & EDU domains in the US, we specifically look for .gov and .edu TLDs.
We have updated this to match the Government & University TLDs for each country.
Here’s the full list of patterns we’re checking for each country:
- US: gov & edu
- UK: gov.uk & ac.uk
- AU: gov.au & edu.au
- NZ: govt.nz & ac.nz
- ZA: gov.za & ac.za
- CA: gc.ca & edu
Note: Apparently most Canadian universities use .ca extensions, so, we’re defaulting y’all to .edu results rather than mixing in non-university domains.
