Navigating our Data Tables – The “10X Features” that are not so obvious

Almost every single module within Mondovo will show you data within a Data Table.

Navigating our Data Tables

There many useful features that you should be aware of with these tables. Some are obvious and some aren’t. We’ll be listing all of them here and this document will be updated over time as we add more features.

The Basics

Legend:

  1. Checkbox – use this to select the keywords or urls that you want to copy or tag
  2. Selects all the records that are visible on the page
  3. Selects all the records across the entire table
  4. Copies the “selected” records to the clipboard
  5. Assign tags to the “selected” records only
  6. Display more data rows than is presently visible
  7. Export the report to Excel or CSV – if you’ve filtered the table, then only the filtered records will be exported
  8. Click on the funnel icon to filter the column by one of many criteria available
  9. Click on the column heading to sort the data in ascending or descending order – first click will sort in ascending order and second click in descending

The 10X Features

  1. Column Filters

    Every column in a Data Table can be filtered by a number of ways depending on the type of field. You need to click on the funnel icon next to each column to activate the filter.
    Data Table Column Filters
    Do note: You can run as many combinations of filters on a table. There could be multiple filters on the same column or filters across different columns.
    The two most common types of filters you’ll find are:
    1. The Number filters – You can filter a column by criteria like “greater than” (>), “lesser than” (<), “greater than and equals to” (>=), “lesser than and equals to” (<=), “not equals”, “is empty”, “not empty” and “in between”.
    2. The String filters – You can filter this column type by criteria like “not equals”, “contains (specific word)”, “contains (any of multiple words)”, “does not contain (specific word)”, “does not contain (any of multiple words)”, “starts with”, “ends with”, “is empty”, “is not empty”
  2. Tagging Keywords & Pages

    Every time you mark a checkbox in a DataTable, you’ll find options to “Assign Tags”
    When you tag keywords, they’ll then be available under the “Tagged Keywords” section. For tagged urls, they’ll be available under the “Tagged Pages” section.
    Here a few example use cases for using tags:
    1. You could tag a set of keywords from the keyword research, then go to the On-Demand Rank Checker and import those keywords to check your rankings for these terms.
    2. You could tag a set of urls from a Backlink Analysis report and then go to the Bulk Metrics tool to generate various metrics on those urls.
    3. You could filter your Rank Tracker report to show rankings only for a segment for keywords that you’ve previously tagged
  3. The Inclusion & Exclusion Filter

    How many times has it happened that you’re confronted with a large set of keywords from your keyword research report and you’re not sure how to narrow this down. This feature comes in handy in such cases. This filter allows you to very quickly narrow down 1000s of keywords to a small set of highly relevant keywords.
    This feature is enabled by default in the keyword research tool and is activated by making a text selection on the keywords column. Refer the screengrab below.
    Data Table Inclusion Exclusion Filter
    After making a text selection, you could choose to narrow down your results by either “including” or “excluding” all results that contain that word.
    There is no limit to the number of inclusion and exclusion word filters you use on a table.
    Tip to activate the feature on any table: Press Ctrl + Shift + F (Windows) and the feature will be activated on that page. In cases where there are multiple tables on the page, you will find a dropdown where you need to select the table for which you’d like the filter applied.
  4. Multi-Column Filtering & Sorting

    You can sort multiple columns by holding the Shift (Windows) key and then clicking on the column heading to sort by that column. You can repeat the sort for as many columns.
    Similarly, there is no restriction on how many columns you can filter by using the column filters.
  5. Show/Hide Columns

    Some reports can have a lot more data than is immediately visible. So do look out for the “Show/Hide Columns” feature in some of the tables. Refer the screenshot below for an example of the Rank Tracker’s keyword rankings table.

  6. Clickable numbers

    There are some tables that have more data behind the numbers. You’ll find them marked in blue bold font with a dotted underline. Clicking on these numbers will usually open a popup modal showing more data.
  7. Keyword Groups

    This is available in some of the keyword related reports. Out here, we traverse the entire set of keywords in the table, find the common keywords included and then create a tree group by which you can filter the entire set.
