This feature is able to display Average Rank, Total Demand, Market Share, and Top Competitors. Information and data about these metrics are very useful in helping you monitor your keywords. Here's a complete list of all the metrics in View Insights:

Average Rank

Average Ranking is a metric that displays the average value of today's keyword ranking in a particular View which is tracked using Sequence. We take the data from 1-100 rankings on SERP pages, then display the average value of organic and absolute rankings.

The average ranking value is obtained by calculating the total ranking of keywords contained in a particular View, then divided by the total keywords in that View. The calculation of the average ranking also includes keywords with > 100 ranks in the SERP.

Take a look at the simulation of calculating the Average ranking in the table below:

To determine today's average ranking, you can calculate today's total ranking by adding up each keyword rank (5+5+2+3). After that, divide by the number of keywords (4).

avg ranking = (5+5+2+3) / 4

avg ranking = 3.5

Total Demand

Total demand is the total number of search volume (SV) on a particular View in the past week. The search volume crawler runs once a week, precisely on Sunday, to get the latest SV data. Thus, the data displayed also refers to the last week's SV.

If you add new keywords in a View, the new total demand data will be updated the following week according to the search volume crawling schedule. You can use this data to monitor how many keywords in a View are searched by internet users.

Market Share

Market Share shows the percentage of market share of your domain compared to competitors in the same market. You are said to dominate the market if the market share value of your brand is higher than competitors. These values ​​will also affect the position of your brand.

To determine the percentage of market share, you need to calculate the SoV (Share of Voice). The SoV value represents the estimated visibility and dominance of your brand compared to competitors, obtained by multiplying the Click-Through Rate (CTR) and Search Volume for each keyword in your domain.


After knowing the SoV value, you can define the total market share of your brand by adding up the SoV of all the keywords in your domain. To calculate the total market share, add up your brand's SOV with the SOV of all your competitors.

Next, the market share percentage is obtained from the division between your brand's total market share and the total market share, then multiplied by 100. If you get a market share percentage of 58.40%, then all of your competitors will fight for a market share of 41.60% for the same keywords.

Top Competitors

In the View Insights, you can also find out the top 10 competitors for keywords in a certain View. This metric contains 10 of your business competitors which will be updated daily. This data is obtained from the percentage of market share on the keywords you are targeting in the selected View.

If your domain is not included in the top 10, you can still see the ranking information and your domain's market share under the list of top 10 competitors. Besides the top 10 competitors, this metric also displays the ranking changes from day to day as indicated by a number in the box to the left of the competitor's name. For example, the number 0 indicates that there has been no change in the competitor's ranking from the previous day.

This data is useful for you to see who your competitors are in the same market. In addition, you can use this data to conduct a Competitive Analysis in the future.
