What is the difference between a 'Ranking Run' and a 'Scheduled Report' in Local Search Rank Checker?

Helen Barnes -


Local Search Rank Checker uses two different types of credits to track usage of ranking reports in your account, 'Ranking Run' credits and 'Scheduled Report' credits

Ranking Run Credits

A 'Ranking Run' credit is used up when you:

a) Add a new report and it runs for the first time
b) Manually re-run an existing report in your account

Depending on the plan you are on, you will have a different amount Ranking Run credits:

Single Business Plan: 10 / month
Multi Business Plan: 50 / month
SEO Pro Plan: 100 / month

Ranking Run credits renew on the first day of every month.

Scheduled Report Credits

‘Scheduled Reports’ are ranking reports which you set to automatically update every week or month.

Depending on the plan you are on, you will have a different number of Scheduled Reports you can have in your account:

Single Business Plan: 3 reports
Multi Business Plan: 6 reports
SEO Pro Plan: 100 reports

Scheduled Report credits do not renew every month. You are not able to exceed the number of Scheduled Reports in your plan unless you buy an 'Addon' plan that gives you additional Scheduled Reports.

Additional scheduled reports cost US$3 per month per report. They can be purchased in blocks of 10 or 20 reports.
