Extended Search: Enhanced integration for greater understanding

Extended Search integration expands the view on your keyword specific ranking integrations for the following:

  • Twitter Card (new) – Twitter cards can appear anywhere in Google results to show the two most recent tweets, also moving the page location of other organic results. This can explain a traffic loss or gain.
  • Google Carousel – Carousel will show the pictures at the top and take significant portion of traffic. Recommended Strategy: figure out how to get your results into Carousel and don’t try to optimize.
  • Mobile App (new) – Google’s App Pack draws attention and can appear anywhere within the results page. Learn if there is one knocking your visibility down while providing an opportunity to be seen if you rank high in the pack.
  • Direct Answer (new) – If you write the best answer you can win the top spot on a SERP.
  • Knowledge Graph – Paid ads on the right hand side of a SERP have been replaced by special integrations, such as Knowledge Graph – a collection of information related to the keyword query – pointing searchers towards social profiles, websites, and general information.


*Extended Search is available to all Searchmetrics Suite licenses.
