Quick FAQ

How do I upgrade my subscription?
The process of changing your existing RankActive subscription is simple and transparent - you can upgrade/downgrade your existing subscription on the go, you don’t have to cancel or relaunch it.
  1. Go to Profile Settings by clicking on your profile’s name in the upper right corner.
  2. Select Plans & Subscriptions from the drop-down menu.
  3. Choose the desirable subscription.
  4. Click Change my plan and confirm the action in the pop-up window.
FastSpring (our payment gateway system) refunds what you did not use from your original subscription plan (based on the number of days remaining before renewal) and then charges you for the remaining days of the new plan.
Let’s say you’ve subscribed to the Minimal (monthly) plan on the 1st of April and have decided to change the subscription to the Optimal (monthly) plan on the 17th of April.
The Minimal plan - $29.95 (monthly) is changed to the Optimal plan - $69.95 (monthly).
In such case the refund is calculated by the formula:
Old Subscription Price Number of Unused Days in the Old Subscription
Number of Days in the Old Subscription
$29.95 * (14/30) = $13.98 (your prorated refund)
The renewal date is not changed. That’s why, after the refund for unused days for the old subscription plan is made, you will be charged for the new subscription plan based on the calculation:
New Subscription Price Number of Unused Days in the New Subscription
Number of Days in the New Subscription
$69.95 * (14/30) = $32.64 (the amount you will be charged with)

  1. Run keyword research with any of Keyword Finder features (i.e., Related Keywords, Ranked Keywords, etc.).
  2. Tick keywords that you want to group.
  3. Hit Enter to create a new group or select an existing one.
  4. Go to Sandbox to see your keyword groups.
You can also create a new group of keywords or edit those you created earlier from within the Sandbox.

How to check what featured snippets I’m ranking for?
Although right now RankActive doesn’t provide information on featured snippets that particular websites rank for, we are working on implementing this feature.

By clicking on the page’s URL in the first column of a table you get the list of keywords, along with their Position, ETV ( Estimated Traffic Volume), and SV (Search Volume).
