SERPs Getting Started Guide
1. Add a new site to your account
There are two ways to add a new site into your SERPs account:
- Import the site from a connected Google Analytics account (recommended)
- Add the site manually

2. Connect multiple Google Analytics accounts
SERPs can handle multiple Google Analytics accounts, each account will need to authorize SERPs to fetch data from it.
Click the “connect a new account link” in the add website section:
3. Add additional keywords to track
By default all keywords are initially set up to track at the nationwide level. No local city or zip code is set. Your country is auto-detected on signup. To change the default country for a website, see your settings page.
To add more keywords to track, paste in a list in the “Add Keywords” popup in the keywords section:
4. Track keywords in multiple countries
To track a keyword in a new country, you must select an existing keyword and add that keyword to a new country. Then that country will be available to add for that project.

5. Track keywords in a city or zip code
To track a keyword in a specific city or zip code, you must select an existing keyword and create a new location. Then that city or zip code will be available to add for that project.
