How do I schedule hourly tracking for a short time?

Track your keywords hourly during specific timeframes and stay on top of any changes in your rankings.

If you want to track your keywords hourly for a short time, you can set that up in the Keyword Manager.

Go to the Schedules.

new short hourly

If this is a new Keyword Source, choose your normal schedule for tracking your SERPs – daily, monthly, weekly, etc. If this is a modification of an existing Source, you can change the normal schedule now, or leave it as it is.

Click +Add Schedule.

new short schedule

Choose Hourly in the dropdown.

Important: choose the Start Date and End Date before you save your changes. If you only have a Start Date, you will continue to track hourly until you reach your monthly limit.

The hourly tracking will start at 12:00 am GMT on the Start date and stop at 12:00 am GMT on the End Date.

(So, in this example, it will not collect hourly data throughout the 8th, but it will stop tracking hourly at 12am that morning.)
