Following its major update, Semalt Analytics is expanding with a new SEO analytics service named Best Pages. It complements the other sections of Semalt’s analytics hub, such as Rankings, Webpage Analyzer, Page Speed, Content Checker, and Report Center (these are coming soon).
The Best Pages service is designed to single out pages that receive the most organic traffic. It analyzes all the pages indexed within a website and highlights those attracting regular traffic flow. Best Pages also show the number of keywords a particular page ranks for, whether in TOP-1 or TOP-100.
Best Pages tap into a pool of historical data to identify the pages that perform well in Google Search. The service enables you to go back for three months to analyze your progress ever since. It couples its performance with the precise keywords number data for the selected pages, translating into digestible, up-to-date insights. They can then be compared on a monthly or weekly basis to visualize the changes in a website’s top-performing pages.
To make insights easy to compare and scrutinize, Best Pages wrap them into charts and diagrams. They can be accessed online with Semalt Analytics or offline in downloadable reports, either in full or URL-only versions.
How to get started with Best Pages?
Please enter your website's domain name or select it from your saved projects. If you've inputted a domain that does not fall within the list of our projects, we'll automatically list all the search engines your website ranks on so that you can manually choose one of them for analysis. Search engines will be listed in descending order of the number of keywords your website ranks for.
Please note that the search engine you specified in the project settings will be available for your saved project.

Pages in TOP
The Pages in the TOP table shows all the pages of your website that have been successfully indexed and are visible in the Google SERP. It is these pages that drive traffic to your website. When looking at Pages in TOP, you can select a date range and get the average number of keywords each page ranks for in TOP 1-100. Date ranges are split into weeks. The two right-hand columns show the average weekly number of keywords ranked in TOP.
Use Pages in TOP filters to get down to the data you need:
- URL filter. Enter the full URL of a page to retrieve the keyword data relevant to this page.
- TOP filter. With this filter, you can zoom in on the pages ranked in Google TOP-1, TOP-3, TOP-10, TOP-30, TOP-50, or TOP-100.
- Dynamics filter. This filter allows you to track how the number of keywords your pages rank for in Google SERPs has changed or whether it has changed at all: Moved up / Moved down / Changed / No changed / Entered (TOP-100) / Dropped (out of TOP-100).
Create and download Best Pages reports in PDF and CSV formats. To get one, go to the Pages in the TOP table and click on the “Get Report” button. You can download a full report filled with charts and diagrams or just a URL list.
The Best Pages report shows comprehensive details on your indexed pages. These details are vital to finding out what pages drive the most traffic to your website and which of them your SEO campaigns should target.
How to manage your domains list
You can easily add any reviewed domain to the list of your projects. Just open the list of domains at the top of the page, select the required domain from a list of "Recently viewed" websites, and click "+". To create a project, you need to log in or create an account if you do not have one. If you are already logged in, the project will be created right off the bat.
By default, the project settings will feature the top search engine for the selected domain and the corresponding set of keywords. If you need more keywords, you can always add them manually on the project page.
To remove a domain from the list of "Recently viewed," click "Remove." Please note that you can manage your domains from the “Projects” list only through the Dashboard.
Wrapping it up
Thanks to the data provided by our analytics service, you will always stay in the loop of pages that bring the most traffic to your site. These pages should be thoroughly optimized and feature valuable content. Here you can also check the number of keywords your best pages rank for. The more target keywords a page covers, the more attention should be paid to its internal and external optimization.
Best Pages can be worth its weight in gold for those who do SEO for their websites, SEO specialists, and webmasters. The service is available for free as part of Semalt Analytics.
