RankSense Slack App
The RankSense web app is able to integrate with Slack in order to give you instant notifications when we detect traffic-killing SEO issues on your site.
Once Slack is integrated with RankSense, every time we detect an SEO issue in real time, you will be instantly notified in the Slack channel of your choice.
In order to integrate Slack with RankSense, first login to your RankSense account at app.ranksense.com
After you login, in the “Domains” section of the app, pick the website domain you want to receive notifications for and click on the “Open dashboard” button next to it:
Once you are in your preferred domains “Dashboard” page, click on “Setting” in the top menu navigation:
Next, from the “Settings” screen, click on “Integrations”:
Under “Applications”, click on the “Connect” button next to “Slack”:
This will take you to the Slack confirmation screen where you will be able to connect your Slack account with RankSense. You can select which Slack workspace to connect with, as well as which Slack channel you want receive notifications in.
Once you configure your settings appropriately, click on the “Authorize” button:
After you Authorize RankSense to be integrated with Slack, you will be taken back to the “Settings” page of the RankSense app.
The Slack channel you selected to receive notifications in will also show that RankSense has been integrated into the channel. Similar to what can be seen below:
Make sure that the “Slack” toggle button is green after the integration has been completed. If the toggle is set to the off position, though RankSense will continue to be integrated with your Slack channel, you will not receive any notifications. The toggle must be set to the on position in order for you to receive notifications.
You can also click on the “Settings” button next to the Slack toggle in order to configure your notification settings:
The notifications settings will let you control how often you receive notifications from RankSense whenever it detects SEO issues on your site.
Generally, you will receive one notification per SEO issue detected on your site, but you are able to limit this to be as frequent or as less frequent as you prefer.
By clicking on “Override default frequency”, you will be able to adjust the notification settings so that they are different than the email notification settings you configured in the main “Settings” -> “General” section.
If you decide to remove the Slack integration with RankSense, you can easily do this by clicking on the “Remove” button in the Slack settings screen:
*Note that you must have a RankSense account in order to integrate with Slack.
** Request your RankSense invitation code by clicking on the “Free SEO Monitoring” button in the top menu navigation of this site.
