HubSpot Wish List
Show high-level keyword ranking progress
I would like to see a way that you can show your keyword ranking progress without having to click on each individual keyword. My thoughts are having a grid view similar to the current keyword screen, but have columns for each stating the following:
- Current rank
- 30 Days ago
- 60 Days ago
- 120 Days ago
This would allow for a quick overview to see which keywords are making progress, and which need more attention.

HubSpot Question of the Week
Amelia Video Equipment: Where to start and what to do?
I was wondering what you recommend for our first investment in our own video equipment. Some stuff we have literally done via iPhone, and some we've paid to have a pro (usually costs $1-2k) and we rented a studio once.
First let’s answer - “Why is Inbound Video important to your business?”
- Easier to teach with video
- Gain trust instantly
- Lead generation machine
Now here is the more micro conversation...
- Good camera - The Cannon XA10
- Good Mic
- shotgun mic second. - Sennheiser
- Sony makes a good lapel mic setup - Sony
- Decent lighting Vs Great Lighting
- Learning Video - Wistia, Lynda.com, Videocopilot.net, YouTube
- Practise, Practise, Practise
Wondering where to begin?
