How Can I Improve My Visibility Score?

Short answer: Don’t make improving Visibility a goal in your SEO strategy.

Long answer: Visibility reflects the quality of your rankings in a single metric; it won’t lead to better rankings. Make it your goal to improve your rankings for relevant keywords that prospective customers actually use to find products and services like yours. Improving your rankings will improve your Visibility, too. But it’s your rankings that really matter.

As a rule of thumb, your Visibility score will be higher if

  • Your domain’s URLs rank in good positions
  • You have a high number of indexed URLs with good rankings
  • You rank well for keywords with a high search volume

Why is Visibility score useful?

Use your Visibility score as an indicator of your overall SEO performance, problems, and potential for optimization.

1. Get An Idea of Your Overall SEO Performance

You can track rankings for single keywords and know which position you rank on. It’s an important thing to do. However, rank tracking does not give you a bird’s eye view perspective of the overall improvement of your rankings—but Visibility does. When your SEO measures are effective and rankings improve, so does your Visibility score.

2. Diagnose SEO Problems

A sudden drop in your Visibility indicates problems in your SEO performance. Use Visibility like an alert. If it drops significantly, start digging for what happened. Here’s a list of common reasons:

  • You were hit with a Google Penalty. Check Search Console for notifications. Make sure to follow Google’s Webmaster Guidelines.
  • There are ramifications from a recent change in Google’s algorithm. Inquire about recent Google Updates and what they entail.
  • Your competitors optimized their websites and content, and now they out-compete you. Compare their (historical) Visibility with yours. Use the Wayback Machine to compare how their content changed.
  • You relaunched your site without SEO in mind. For example, check robots.txt and .htaccess for accidentally blocked pages, increased 404 status codes, faulty 301-redirects, and internal links.

You changed your content in a way that didn’t help your rankings. Consider reversing the changes.

Your website has technical issues. Run a Site Audit or check your Advisor for open technical tasks. Check your backend for outdated, recently updated, or incompatible plugins that may cause havoc.

Hosting issues are the cause. Inquire whether your host made recent changes, has been hacked, moved their servers, or experienced technical difficulties. See if your server has issues.

Keep in mind that this list is not exhaustive. One or more of those reasons can apply simultaneously, or there could be other reasons altogether.

3. Competitor Comparison

Visibility is a great metric for a quick comparison of two or more websites. Check your Visibility against theirs. Who is out-competing who? Has a competitor outperformed you in the past or vice versa? Who’s leading the field, and how big is the gap between you and your fiercest competitor? Answering those questions will help you develop an SEO strategy to come out (and stay) at the top of your niche.

4. Track Visibility Development Over Time With Historical Data

Want to know how a website fared over time? We provide historical data going all the way back to 2009, free of seasonal fluctuations. That way, you can track and compare historic Visibility and see their development over long periods of time.

What is Project Visibility?

Maybe you already stopped to think, “Wait, but I don’t care about my visibility for keywords that have nothing to do with my business.” And you are right. While Visibility is a great score to get an idea of your overall performance and compare websites in general, it’s not tailored to your specific keyword set.

That’s why we provide Project Visibility. This metric is calculated the same way as Visibility, but instead of using 500,000 cross-industry keywords, Project Visibility is exclusively based on keywords in your Rank Tracker.

In other words, Project Visibility is a custom visibility score for the unique set of keywords relevant to your business.

You’ll find Project Visibility here: Projects → Rank Tracker → Visibility.

As you might already know, you can also track your competitors’ rankings in your Rank Tracker. That way, you’ll get Project Visibility for them, too, allowing for a much more realistic comparison. So, even if they have a slightly different product or service portfolio, Project Visibility accounts exclusively for keywords you actually share.

There are tasks I’ve already covered. Why do they pop up?

There are two reasons why you might see tasks you’ve already solved or covered. As mentioned above, tasks are a mix of basic SEO measures and issues found in weekly automated audits of your website.

First, the tasks covering basic SEO measures are the same for everyone and are not tailored to your website or business. For example, we don’t know whether you created a Google account for your business and set up Search Console or if you installed SEO plugins. If you already did—great work! Simply flag those tasks as Done.

The second reason is that the Advisor is automatically updated based on the results of automated weekly Site Audits. In other words, if a Site Audit identifies any issues concerning a task you completed in the past, it will automatically be updated and pop up in the Open section.

How do I assign tasks to other users?

To assign a task to other users, you’ll need a plan that allows additional users. If your plan includes additional users, you’ll find the Assignee menu in your Advisor and tasks. Simply choose a user to assign a task or filter the Advisor by. To add a new user, click on your profile avatar and then click Users. If your plan does not include additional users, you won’t see the Assignee menu in your Advisor or tasks. Upgrade your plan to add users.

I want an advisor for other websites. How do I get it?

Keep in mind that you do need a Project for the Advisor feature to work. Also, most of the Advisor’s tasks are tailored to a Project’s website (usually yours or your client’s). If you manage more than one website, you’ll need to create an extra Project for each of them.

To add or switch to another project, click the Projects menu in the top navigation bar. Depending on your plan, you might need to upgrade it to add another Project.

How to use the Advisor

First, check out the advisor’s board by clicking Advisor in the top navigation bar. It is a Kanban board helping you organize your tasks by status. Your tasks are color coded by importance:

  • Red: High. Solve ASAP.
  • Yellow: Medium. Tackle those soon.
  • Blue: Low. Keep them in mind and solve them when you can.

You can drag and drop as you complete tasks, assign tasks to other users (depending on your plan), and filter by the assignee.

As mentioned above, tasks are a mix of standard basic SEO measures and issues found in weekly automated audits of your website.

What Is Keyword Optimization

So we know that relevance is a crucial factor for a top position in search results. To create relevant content, you want to deal with the topics and questions around a keyword on an individual subpage or URL. Then, make sure your keyword appears in crucial spots on your page.

Let’s say you are in the ice cream business. One of your keywords is s’mores ice cream sandwich. Now you focus on everything that has to do with a s’mores ice cream sandwich.

Why Are Keywords Important

Keyword is a technical term for search queries (words, phrases, sentences, and questions). With their help, users find content that answers their questions and provides solutions. Put simply, a keyword is the link between users and your website. Search engines compare keywords with websites, looking for content with the highest relevance.

A big part of SEO lies in identifying keywords that have the potential to drive relevant traffic to your website—in other words, bringing in prospective customers. To do that, you need to identify search terms (or keywords) people use when searching for offers like yours. This process is called keyword research. Ideally, keyword research provides you with a list of keywords covering search queries across the entire customer journey.

What you want to do is create a recipe page for a s’mores ice cream sandwich where users find an easy-to-follow recipe, pictures or videos, and answers to questions they might have. S’mores ice cream sandwich is your focus keyword that should appear in your page’s URL, title, headlines, and more.

Providing a dedicated and keyword-optimized page makes it easy for search engines—and users, too—to determine what your page is all about. That way, they can list it in good positions in related search results.

What Can SEO Do For Me?

With the help of SEO, users can find your business, products, and services online—and buy them. As mentioned, that means that people can find you online and much easier offline, too.

SEO maximizes your chances to be listed in top positions for keywords crucial to your business. The better your position, the more people will find their way to your website—preferably on the first page (or top ten) of search results.

Why Page One?

Good question. Studies have shown that 31.7% of users click on the first organic search result (position one); a whopping 75.1% of all clicks go to the top three search results. After that, the number of clicks shrinks rapidly with every following position.

faq googlectrchart

This behavior shows that users rarely look at page two or lower results, let alone click on any of them.

faq googlectrpages

That’s why businesses need to be present on the first page of search results, at least for relevant keywords.

In short: It’s crucial for freelancers and business owners to

  • Own a website or any kind of online presence, even if they offer their products or services offline
  • Perform SEO to make sure they rank on page one for relevant keywords

Why Do I Need SEO?

Every day, millions of people use search engines to find information or services from all aspects of life: Recipes, guides, products, flights, navigation, tickets, entertainment, and more. Most people navigate the web using search engines to find answers to their questions and solutions to their challenges.

A study shows that 68% of the web’s traffic comes from search engines. 53% of this traffic has its origins in organic search—search results that are not ads (paid search) and can be improved through SEO.

faq advisor

In other words, organic search (SEO) and paid search (SEA, ads in search results) make up the lion’s share of traffic on the web.

Even where we go offline is significantly influenced by search engines: We use Google and Apple Maps and local search results to find places and nearby services like hairdressers, supermarkets, restaurants, and doctors. We choose our destination based on online reviews. And we instruct search engine-based services to guide us there, be it by car, public transportation, or on foot.

Now, imagine if your business, products, and services are not listed in search results. Imagine people can’t find you online to buy your products or find their way to your brick-and-mortar business. Instead, they will most likely choose your competition.

What is SEO?

SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimization. It is an essential online marketing strategy dedicated to driving prospective customers to your website. Its goal is to optimize a website to gain top positions for selected keywords on search engines. This goal is achieved by strategically employing measures to improve the website’s technical setup and contents and obtaining backlinks from other domains.

  • Keywords and rankings
  • On-page SEO
  • Off-page SEO

SEO specialists apply measures to meet the search engine’s ranking factors for each category. Search engines use ranking factors to determine the position in which it lists a website in search results.

VPS Hosting

Can I change server parameters?

Yes, the administration interface can change the number of processors, memory, or storage space. The upward change will cause additional costs, and the downward one will reduce costs.
The cost change will be made from the moment the VPS server size is changed.

Changing the hard disk (storage space) involves certain conditioning of the number of processors and memory. That is why a downgrade can later be more difficult to perform automatically. For storage, we recommend an additional volume connected to the server. This volume can then be linked to another server.

What offers can I choose?

You can choose anything from the online store. Packages can be combined, if you do not find what you are looking for, you can contact us.
We want you to be very satisfied with any of our services: domains, hosting, virtual servers with many variants between memory and processors, dedicated server, SSL certificates, E-mail, Office 365, and many other adjacent products.

Without payment, we cannot validate the existence/identity of a contract partner. Obviously, we have other automatic validation systems, but the safest and simplest remains payment.

When is the account activated?

The VPS account and server are activated when payments are registered in our systems. You will receive an email with all the necessary data to be able to access the server.

For credit card or PayPal payments, it activates immediately, for bank transfer payments, on the day the money enters our account.

How do I access the 30 day warranty?

The easiest way is to create a support ticket with your request and we will take care of it. No specific reason is needed.

However, there are special services for which we cannot refund the money. These are:

– domains / here the payment is made in advance for 1 or more years and there is no return process at the level of the entire industry.
– Paid SSL certificates are issued for one year and cannot be returned

Some of these require licenses to run, licenses that you must bring. If you need a licensed Windows server, then we recommend the Windows VPS servers which you can find it here.

Why do I need a VPS?

A private virtual server or in short VPS is the perfect solution for your business when it is too big for simple web hosting, shared with other companies and people, but also when you need more resources. VPS is actually a virtual machine that uses servers in the cloud. The most important quality is that it can be resized flexibly and allows various operating systems.

A VPS service offers you first and foremost stability and security. Although there are similarities between this service and shared hosting, the latter is intended for small projects that do not need many resources and do not have heavy traffic.

If you want to send mass emails, you want system customizations, increased security, and low prices along with high control, then VPS is what you need.

In addition to the storage space on the server, we provide you with other facilities, such as domains, email addresses, visitor reports, various scripts, and much more.

What is a VPS server?

A VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a virtualization method that allows partitioning of a single server into multiple servers so that each of the virtual servers can support its own processes. Each VPS can be installed with its own operating system with its own dedicated resources. In conclusion, a VPS is an independent virtual dedicated server.

Virtual private servers have the same technical parameters as a dedicated server: Processor, RAM, Storage space, operating system, dedicated IP address, root access, etc.

I purchased a web hosting; what should I do now?

The first thing you need to do is to upload the website online. You have everything that is needed to create 5 pages directly from the browser or any other web editor program but you can also hire a specialized company to do the job for you.

You can access the customer section where you can visualize the active services and you can also configure everything you need: email addresses, databases, FTP accounts, subdomains, etc.

What does web hosting mean?

No action is needed from you. Your Office 365 subscription will automatically be renamed to Microsoft 365. You will see the name of your subscription update to the new name across your Admin Portal and monthly billing statements.

Where business plan names have changed, has the product or price changed?

There are no price or feature changes for small and medium business plans. The same plans are available, only with an updated name.

Why did you change the name from Office 365 to Microsoft 365?

We changed the name to be more reflective of the range of features and benefits in the subscription. Microsoft 365 includes everything you know in Office 365, including best-in-class Office apps, intelligent cloud services, and advanced security.

Domain Registration

What are nameservers?

Nameservers are devices used for running Domain Name Service (DNS) servers. Their role is to make the connection between the name of a domain that you enter in the browser and the IP of the equipment that provides services to that domain (email, web hosting, FTP, and others). Without setting the correct domain nameservers, it will not be able to point to the device where its files, emails, etc. are hosted.
We offer free DNS service for all domains purchased from us whether or not you have hosting from us.

I ordered a domain and after that I changed my mind; what do I do?

A domain does not have to be used. They can be parked for the period for which it was paid. Unfortunately, the whole domain system is based on prepaid registration and the paid money cannot be refunded. You must cancel the automatic renewal so that it is not updated at the end of the period for which you paid.
And for .ro domains, the process was updated a few years ago to an annual payment.

I am looking for an extension that does not appear in the list?

Send us an email or a support ticket and we will add it or tell you the status of the extension.

What domain should I register?

It depends on the market you want to target and the type of your organization. For Romania, it is appropriate to use .ro, for international .com sites, NGOs, and other types of .org non-profit organizations. There are many other types of domains that you see in our list of possible domains.

How to Include or Exclude a Domain from AutoSSL in cPanel

You can include or exclude your domain from AutoSSL.

If your domain is newly-created, wait a few hours for the cPanel to automatically install an SSL on your domain. You can check the last log of AutoSSL from cPanel > SSL/TLS Status > Certificate Status.


1. Log in to your cPanel account.


2. In the Security section, click on SSL/TLS Status.

3. Under Domain, choose the domain you want to include. Then click on “Include x domain(s) during AutoSSL“. Selected domains/sub-domains will be included in AutoSSL.

How to exclude a domain from AutoSSL?

1. Under Domain, check-mark the domains you want to exclude and click “Exclude X domains during AutoSSL.” Selected domains/subdomains will be excluded from AutoSSL.

Note: You can only exclude domains that you previously included in AutoSSL.

How to Install an SSL on Your Domain Using AutoSSL in cPanel

cPanel can automatically install an SSL on your domain within a few hours. However, even after 24 hours, if an SSL is not installed on your domain, first check the last log of the AutoSSL from cPanel > SSL/TLS Status > Certificate Status.

If it shows any errors, try to fix them or open a ticket with us. If it does not show errors, it means AutoSSL did not automatically include your domain. It will help if you force cPanel to run an AutoSSL on your domain and install an SSL Certificate. You can run AutoSSL on your domain in the following way:

1. Log in to your cPanel account.

2. In the Security section, click on SSL/TLS Status.

3. Click on Run AutoSSL. It should show a success or error message.

If it shows a success message, the SSL will be automatically installed on your domain within the next few hours. If it displays an error, then check it and send that message to us so we can resolve this for you.

Note: SSL installation is fully automated. Sometimes, AutoSSL takes up to 24 hours to verify the domain.
