Hello. Could we get Houzz to show up as one of the listings checked in the snapshot report? It is a pretty commonly used site for people in the home services space. Thank you!
Websites are critical to succeed in today's online marketplace, providing consumers a virtual doorway into your client's business. Similar to how you'd want physical customers to have a great experience in-store, their online visit should be just as enjoyable. This is where the Snapshot Report's website section can help as it breaks down the key components required for a great online experience. Page experience is important for multiple reasons: Creating an enjoyable website experience helps to build stronger brand recognition with consumers. If the business owner runs an ecommerce enabled website, a smooth page experience can lead to an increase in online sales. These page experience metrics are important factors when it comes to Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies. That last point is vital for business owners. Without a good website experience, they may not rank high within search engines, impacting their chances of being found by prospective customers. The Snapshot Report breaks down website performance using Google's Core Web Vitals, the set of key indicators they use as ranking criteria. What are Page Experience and the Core Web Vitals? Page experience measures aspects of how customers experience and interact with a website. By optimizing for these factors, business owners can create delightful experiences across all web browsers and devices. This can lead to more engaged consumers, increases in sales, and a strong brand affinity. Core Web Vitals are a set of real-world, user-centered metrics that can help to quantify key factors of a user's experience. They focus on 3 areas: speed, responsiveness, and visual stability. Google combines these factors in determining search ranking as they help provide a holistic picture of page experience. Snapshot Report Homepage Content Within the Snapshot Report, we first give a look at the homepage content for your clients website. This will show if key business information is found on your client's website. Having easy access to this information creates a smooth page experience for visitors and is essential when it comes to search engine ranking. Snapshot Report Website Performance Overall Grades - The Snapshot Report breaks down performance for both Mobile and Desktop. Both grades can be seen at the top of the section, along with an image of how they appear on both devices. NOTE: If needed, salespeople have the ability to turn off either the desktop or mobile version within the Snapshot Report. Visit our support article to learn more about customizing the Snapshot Report. Page Speed - To the right of the device image you'll find page speed. This measures how quickly the content of your client's website is visually displayed during page load. Large Content - This metric measures how long it takes for the largest element within view to load for site visitors. Interactivity - This measures how long it takes the client's website to respond after a user engages with an on-site element. Visual Stability - This will measure any unexpected shirts in your website layout. This can be caused by site elements loading out of sync. NOTE: If the Snapshot Report has been customized to only show desktop or mobile, then that will be reflected in these metrics by only showing how that particular device measures up. Below the Core Web Vital scores, you'll find a more detailed report on what should be fixed on your client's website for both desktop and mobile devices. If your client has the ability to make changes on their own, you can provide this detailed look at what needs to be fixed as an additional value for the Snapshot Report. Or if you offer website services, this can be an effective talking point about how much you can help them improve their website experience.
There is a glitch with the Quiz section of the Snapshot Ninja course. In the 1st question, the report section does not want to move when matching it with the correct response. My login email has been modified and seemingly it seems that I need to retake many of the courses. Thanks.
For local businesses that sell to other businesses in the area - it's imperative they have a presence on Linkedin. I'd like to see a way for a presence on Linkedin to be an option on the Snapshot report in the social section. This seems to be a miss when talking to prospects to not acknowledge this whether the company page or other leaders who have or should have active profiles.
I had a client today ask me how the Industry Leaders were determined for the Snapshot Report. I looked on various documentation for the Snapshot Cheatsheets, etc. and I couldn't find a clear answer. After reaching out via chat to the support team this was the response.... The industry leaders are those businesses in your geographical location, within your industry, who have raked the highest in the individual categories, and overall, evaluated by the snapshot report. I recommend you add an info bubble on that Industry Leaders title.
Snapshot Reports are intended to be used as a prospecting tool and as such are typically expected to only be generated once during the prospecting phase. Creating a Snapshot report and Refreshing a Snapshot report are two separate products and both charge a standard fee of $2, however, every subscription tier has a number of 'free' Snapshot reports allocated which can only be used towards creating a new Snapshot report for prospecting purposes. Although a partner can refresh a Snapshot report, this will incur the $2 charge as this is treated as a separate product from creating a Snapshot report.
The Snapshot Report is an award-winning marketing needs assessment that arms sales reps with automated insights into a business’s online marketing performance. These insights make for powerful and persuasive sales pitches. Use the Snapshot Report to start the conversation with business owners, highlight gaps in their marketing, and propose optimal solutions. Sample Snapshot Report:
Business listings are essential to succeed in today's online marketplace with 73% of people losing trust in a brand when their listings are incorrect. This causes customers to blame the business when their information is wrong, damaging their reputation. That's why it's important for businesses to understand how they currently rate when it comes to their business listings, and Snapshot Report is great at surfacing these insights. How is the listings grade calculated? The Listings grade is a reflection of your business’s online listings. Each listing source is assigned a score based on how popular the site is. For example, having an accurate listing on a popular site like Google will have a greater influence on your Listing Score. The Listings grade is determined by the percentile range your business falls into when compared to other businesses in the same industry. Example: The business above is classified as a restaurant, thus the report is comparing it to similarly classified businesses. As the formula prior to August 1st for scoring the Listings section considers anything within the top 20% of businesses to be an A, this section is graded as an A. NOTE: If the grade isn't populating, it could be due to your geographic region settings. If you're located in a country where we may not have enough industry data to compare on a country, state, or city level, the grade won't show. To fix this you'll need to enable performance metrics on a world level. To check this, go to Administration > Customize > General Product Settings > Geographic Region for Performance Metrics, enable World, and click Save. Listing Section Breakdown Listing Presence This is where we calculate how many available listing sites there are for that particular business category, and how many of those sites display your client's business information. We also highlight the four primary listing sites for any business: Google, Facebook, and Twitter. When creating or refreshing a snapshot report, Reputation Management Trial will only pull a customer's LinkedIn page if it is connected to the account in the platform. Therefore during snapshot generation, mostly LinkedIn will appear to be "not found" in the listing section since accounts are not connected in most cases while prospecting. Listing Accuracy Here is where we calculate the accuracy of those found listings from the previous section. This is based on the business details entered when creating the account. We also compare their accuracy against their industry average to show them how well they're doing against the competition. Finally, we provide a summary of how many times their information was found to be incorrect, broken out by: Incorrect phone number, missing phone number, and missing website link. Listing Details This section allows you to give your clients a detailed breakdown of each listing site they could be found on along with what information is accurate, missing, or incorrect. They also have the option of clicking View Listing to see the actual listing itself. This can be a great way to help your clients visualize just how much work is involved in keeping their business information updated. Data Provider Accuracy There are three major data providers that distribute your clients' information to hundreds of online sources: Data Axle, Neustar/Localeze, and Foursquare. The sources that gather information from these data providers include review sites, directories, social sites, search engines, GPS services, and more. It's crucial that your clients' are found on these data providers and that their business details are accurate, or else they may send incorrect information to thousands of potential customers.

Google Search results vary from person to person even when using the same exact keywords as there are multiple factors in the algorithm. While the Snapshot makes its best effort to provide objective results, they should be taken as indicative information. Some of the factors Google might use to influence a specific search are:• Previous Searches On a Single Device• Previously Clicked Links• Geographic Location• Google Account History• Device Being Used• Type of Search and Filters Used• Paid Ads Present• Changes to a website or its content• Ongoing experiments with the algorithm
A strong Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategy is vital for any business looking to compete online. The main objective of SEO is to increase a website's traffic and ultimately its conversion rate. This is accomplished by ranking high in the search results for keywords related to the business. The SEO strategy's mission is to optimize the website's content so that search engines find the business more relevant and authoritative than their competitors. This is why it's vital that your clients understand how they appear in local search results and how a majority of their online information affects their search ranking. Snapshot Report can be a great tool in helping them visualize this as it shows exactly how the business ranks within Google Search. SEO Section Breakdown The SEO section requires a minimum 60% match to the Google listing for Name, Address, Phone Number, and/or Website to populate this section correctly. If this threshold is not met through matched data, the system sees no match found. Weighting: - Name: 20% - Address: 20% - Phone Number: 40% - Website: 20% Local Search Results This section displays exactly how your prospect's business appears within Google's search results. This helps them to visualize how they appear for any new customers with no prior search history. This section is broken up into two separate parts. Google Map: This displays their rank within an 800-meter radius around the business's location. Each hotspot is clickable and shows how they rank within that hotspot compared to local competitors for the selected keyword. Search Results: This showcases the top three search results for the selected hotspot, and where the prospect appears. If they don't appear within the top three results, they'll appear just below their search ranking. They'll also be able to see whether their Google Business profile is claimed or not, which can affect how they rank within these results. NOTE: The keyword that is chosen is pulled from their Google Business Profile account if it's claimed, and if it's not claimed then it uses the prospects business category. This keyword can also be changed in the Snapshot Reports customization settings found when editing the report in the Sales & Success Center. Learn more about your customization options. Organic Keyword Performance Organic Keyword Performance measures your prospects against their competition when it comes to the number of keywords they rank for organically. The higher the value per click, the more optimized your prospects' keywords are. The data is pulled from SEMrush. Keywords: This number shows how many organic keywords your prospect shows up for within the top 50 results of Google. So while they may show up for more than this number of keywords, if they appear within the 50+ results, those keywords won't be counted. Clicks: This measures how many times those keywords have led to a user clicking on and visiting your prospect's website from Google Search. Value: This shows how much your prospect would have to spend monthly on paid ads for those same keywords to receive the same amount of clicks they're getting organically. Please note: this value will display in USD ($). NOTE: This is calculated by assigning each organic keyword a value determined by where the prospect's business domain ranks on it. So the higher a business ranks for a keyword, the more valuable that keyword is to them. We then calculate the average across all their organic keywords. Value per click: Value per click = Value / Clicks. This is the value of each organic click your prospect receives. Organic Keyword Ranking Organic Keyword Ranking displays up to 5 of the top keywords your prospect currently ranks for. This gives the prospect a good idea of how Google views its website based on its content. The data is pulled from SEMrush. Keywords: These are the keywords and phrases that customers would be searching for to find your prospects' business on Google. These are determined by reviewing the content on their website. NOTE: It's important to note that this data is based on the content of your prospect's website. If these keywords don't match up with their business or industry, then that means that work is required to optimize their website content so that they rank for keywords more related to their area of expertise. Competitiveness: This measures how difficult it is to appear in the top Google search results for that specific keyword. The more competing businesses that are targeting that specific keyword in their SEO strategies, the longer the dark blue bar will be. Rank: This displays the position your prospect ranks within Google's search results. The closer to 1 they are, the better they're doing in optimizing for that specific keyword. Local Searches (US Only): For the given search term, this is the amount of estimated organic traffic the keyword receives on average per month within the prospect's local area. Clicks (Outside of the US): For the given search term, this is the estimated number of clicks the keyword receives on average per month. Global Searches: This is the estimated number of searches per month across Google for that keyword.
