Benchmark checks compare the performance of many pages, typically our homepage compared to the homepages of our competitors.
To create a Benchmark Check:
- Go to Benchmark > + New
- Name the check, enter a company name, provide a site URL
- Use the + Add competitor tool to add names and URLs for company sites to compare against the initial site URL
Once created, the Benchmark check will update automatically once per day.
Benchmark checks provide the following metrics:
|Benchmark Score||A Rigor-generated score from 0-100 that relates performance relative to the competition. Rank is calculated with this score. Higher is better.|
