RankTank Google Sheet Add-On

Keyword rank checking automated for your domain using Google Sheets.

RankTank removes limits found in many other keyword position tracking tools by allowing you to scan millions of keywords via an easy to manage and maintain Google Sheet Add-On.

Our tools allow you to find out where you website ranks on Google in many common public and private locations. E.g. Canada, Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

Select the Google Location and Google Language from where you wish to scan and RankTank will go out and crawl, returning super-accurate SERP and finding where your domain ranks in real-time.

How does it work?

With the RankTank Add-On you can easily automate the task of checking where your domain name is ranking within search engine result pages. This is all done from within any new or existing Google Sheet.

RankTank runs within any Google Sheet via the “Add-Ons” menu. You can either “Get add-ons” from the menu and search for RankTank or follow the steps below to browse to it directly.

  1. Get add-ons within any Google Sheet or search the G Suite Marketplace for RankTank.
  2. Install individually to your account or to your G Suite domain.
  3. Open a new Google Sheet or a new tab within an existing Google Sheet (required as RankTank will overwrite the styling on the tab).
  4. Choose “Open sidebar” from the “RankTank” menu under “Add-Ons” menu on your Google Sheet.
  5. Login with your desired Google account and follow the tutorial.

Known Issues (Important)

Careful → There is a known issue where you should not use https://example.com or http://example.com in your domain name to be searched for, only use “example.com”.

Fixed → There is a known issue where the sidebar does not load after signing in with Google if you have multiple Google accounts which are currently logged in, we are investigating this and will find a resolution to switch between accounts. For now the workaround is to make sure your browser is only logged into your primary Google account.

Fixed → We have found that sometimes the add-on help wizard does not fully complete on loading the add-on and you may need to select help from the menu on the right (your profile picture) if you're still unsure of what to do to get started. You can also read more in the section below.

Getting Started

Head over to the RankTank G Suite Marketplace and choose “Individual Install” or “Domain Install” on the RankTank Add-On page or open any Google sheet and choose the “Add-ons” → “Get add-ons” and search for “RankTank”. Make sure to use a new Google Sheet or tab as RankTank will overwrite the current tabs contents.

1. Choose “Install” on the “RankTank Add-On”
2. Open Google Sheet Menu “Add-ons” → “RankTank” → “Open sidebar”
3. Sign in with your Google account, or any Google account linked to your profile.
