Roger manages over 10,000 locations for his global real estate company. In order to check the health of his listings, Roger had to create a separate team devoted to tracking the Google Maps rank of each location every week. Having to pull resources and money from other parts of his department to fund this endeavor was beginning to negatively affect the quality and output of his content team.
With dbaPlatform, Roger’s team could easily create auto-scans that would perform weekly keyword rank scans. What used to be a full-time ordeal now only required one day of checking reports and exporting them for review. His team now had the time they needed to focus on developing growth strategies for his locations.
As a boutique marketing agency, Linda hears the question “Why don’t I show up when I Google Myself?” almost every day. Perhaps even more frustrating, Linda’s clients would show up ranked #1 on Google Maps when they performed a search from the location of their business, but when they performed the same search from the comfort of their own home their Google My Business listing was nowhere to be found.
Linda found that most keyword rank trackers were focused more on organic SEO and the few that did offer local rank tracking, only reported on searches performed at the address of the listing.
"This level of insight into local pack rankings is so much better than trying to track with multiple zip codes."
The Local Rank Tracker was designed specifically for Google Maps, giving you complete control to monitor how a listing performs in a broad service area.

Local Falcon displays Google My Business rankings for listings that show up either in the Maps portion of the organic search, or from a search in the Google Maps Local Finder (i.e. Google Maps). It scans multiple points at varying distances from the target business and displays them at the same onto a Google Map.
At this time, Local Falcon does not accommodate business listings that are designated as Service Area Businesses (SAB) with hidden addresses. If your business does not come up in the autocomplete above, then unfortunately our tool won't work for you.
Local Falcon works everywhere in the world and with any language!
We would not have released the tool if it was not providing accurate information. If you want more details, we created an article comparing our scan to two other local rank trackers.
Local Falcon is a pay-as-you-go service. The pay as you go plan allows you pay for each scan individually. You are able to fund your account with any initial amount. This is a great way to test out the scan and make sure you are happy with the information it is providing you. If you are a large agency, please contact us for pricing.
Currently we are only accepting automated payments through Stripe.
If you have used your browser to perform a search, Google will remember that and personalize search results it further provides for you. Since we are pulling our numbers directly from the Google API, this raw data might be slightly different than a browser search. If you are performing a search on Google Maps, the zoom level of the map will be a factor as to what results are displayed as well. Since we need to set the zoom to a default level, it might be different than the zoom level you are looking at. Lastly, we want to stress that rankings are highly variable and dependent on many factors. These include variables such as has the IP address been used before to perform a similar search, are you logged in to Google or not, is the browser in incognito mode, are you using a mobile or desktop. There is no 'perfect' rank scan for local results, because everyone sees slightly different results in a real world scan. Local Falcon will provide for you a picture of the coverage area of a business for a specific keyword. This helps you compare your listing to competitors, and to see if your optimization tasks are improving the coverage area for specific keywords.
Other rank trackers make you choose a location to scan from, usually a zip or postal code, and will choose one spot to scan from within that area. Since a map ranking scan result can be different with even a small amount of distance, it is normal that this difference would sometimes appear. That's not to say that there won't be any anomalies. The Google API can return some funky data sometimes. If you see anything that doesn't make sense, please let us know.
Definitely! If they show up in the autocomplete field above, then they can be scanned. Best part is, they won't even know you are looking. ;)
Sure! If your business can be found in the field at the top of the page, then your business can be scanned. It's true, the results may not be accurate to real world because any businesses hiding their address won't be counted in our scan. :( However, the scan can still provide some meaningful data. Running a scan to gather a visual idea of your rankings can be compared to a scan at a later date after search engine optimization tasks have been performed on your listing or your website. So even though the scan numbers might show lower (better) than they actually are, a comparison of scans over time will be helpful to show you if your optimization tasks have generated any positive changes.
Every scan is saved in your account. Saved scan results will be found in the Results page menu item. Data will be recorded in a csv (spreadsheet) file which includes the longitude-latitude coordinates of the scan points, and an ordered list of businesses that appeared at each of those locations.
Not at this time. Multi-location business scanning features will be added shortly.
Yes, however…when you update your address in the Google My Business dashboard, Google might ask you to reverify listing, usually by postcard. This means that you won't have ownership access for a week or more, (to respond to reviews for example) until you receive your new PIN. Also note that once verified, the listing won't show up in the tool autocomplete right away as it will take a few extra days for the Google API to update completely. However, you can always send over an email to us and we'll let you know how to get a scan completed in that in-between period.
You are not limited to only scanning from the business location. You can drag the red center pin on the map to re-center the scan point and begin scanning from any point you want.
We will only ask for information that is necessary to be in compliance with the law. For example, we will need your address when upgrading your account to comply with tax regulations. All scan data is saved in your account for future reference and that information is kept on our servers. We are in compliance with GDPR and will not release any information about you or your account without your authorization or compelled to by law.
ARP = Average Rank Position. ATRP = Average Total Rank Position. The difference is that the ARP is an average of only the pins that actually have a result (position 20 or less). ATRP averages all the pins even when a business is not found (20+). This difference helps you compare if a business is ranking well across a wide area, or if they are ranking well in only a small area in the search grid.
The centroid of a town/city is only important when it comes to searches performed with the location within the query. For example, a search for a “hotel in Miami” will result in Google starting the search at the center of Miami and moving outwards. However, if you are already in Miami, then Google will take your position into account above using the centroid.
The proximity ranking factor makes it so that you will want to track from various points across an area in order to get a good idea of the keyword coverage area. Checking your rankings at only one point on the map, will give you a very poor idea of what is going on with the rankings. Check out LocalFalcon.com for an example of using a geo-grid.
A business should only have one listing at an address regardless of the number of services. There is an exception when there are different departments within a business like auto dealer, and hotels, however these departments typically have their own set of hours and phone numbers. In cases like this, the best way to differentiate would be use the proper categories in GMB without overlap between the listings, and to use different/specific landing pages for each listing.
