Marking changes is a great and simple way to see how your work effects your rankings. You should always do this after making any SEO-related changes to your pages to measure their effect.
Start by tracking any page or keyword
You can mark changes as soon as you start tracking a page, keyword or keyword for a specific page. To do so all you have to do is hit the star anywhere in the KeyXplorer or PageXplorer section.
Now Keylogs will import all available data for this page or keyword and also start importing data for it into the database every day. This is great as it will build a backlog of your data for as long as you like – and definitely more than 90 days.
Mark a change
Marking a change is super simple: just head over to the Tracker section and look for the page or keyword you’ve been working on. Now hit the edit button on the right side of the table. Enter the details of your changes. The title will show up in the graphs so make it short but descriptive.
Since Google Search Console’s data is always a few days behind, so is Keylogs. This also means that if you set a marker for today it will not yet show up in the graphs as there is not data to be displayed with it yet. But it will show up as soon as Keylogs has data from Google for this day.
Now your changes will be marked in all the graphs for this page or keyword giving you a very easy way to see how your changes effected your rankings.
Important: always give Google a few days to pick up any changes you have made. You can speed thing up by telling Google to crawl the site manually.
As you can see in this example it took google about 5 days to pick up the changes:
