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:

  1. Current rank
  2. 30 Days ago
  3. 60 Days ago
  4. 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,,, YouTube
  • Practise, Practise, Practise
