Gathering, processing and exporting data

How often are my website positions being checked?

All the website positions are being checked every 24 hours. Additionally when you add a new phrase for the first time it is being queued in our system for early checking. It usually takes between 4 and 10 minutes.

Colibri reports different results than those obtained when checking the search engine manually. Why is that?

a. Your search engine provides customized results based on your location (IP address) when you’re logged into your Google+ or Gmail account, based on your Web history.

b. Google is testing a new algorithm on users. Because of this some of the results you’re getting might be different from other users’ results.

There are sometimes big variations in the position of my website. Why?

This is caused as search engines change the positions of websites multiple times per day (because they’re testing new algorithms or simply testing the how your website is clickable).

Do you remove historical data after a while?

We keep all your data on our server for 12 months. Backup copies are made every day.

How long does it take for my first results to appear?

It usually takes about 3–4 minutes, but it can sometimes take up to 10 minutes.

Do you have provide country-specific results?

Yes. You can monitor your results in more than 150 local Google, Bing and Yandex search engines.

Google Analytics has been showing a “not provided” message for some time now. Is Colibri showing this data?

Unfortunately not. As of now, there is no tool that can resolve this problem.

Are the keyword limits overall, or per website?

All limits are overall values.

Can I personalize my reports?
