So you’re getting good at tracking your ranks, and you’re starting to sell SEO services as a white-label SEO provider.
As an SEO provider, your most important role is to keep your customers informed. If your customers feel like you’re leaving them out of the loop, they’ll:
- Get upset (because they don’t know what you’re even working on)
- Stop trusting you
- Switch to another provider
In other words, keeping your clients in the loop is one of the FIRST things you need to get sorted out when you start selling SEO services.
Luckily, keeping your clients comfortable, happy, and informed is easy if you know how to take advantage of white-label reports.
In this article, we’re going to show you how to use white-label SEO reporting tools to improve your business and impress your clients.

What Are White-Label SEO Reports?
How do you currently keep your clients informed of their ranks’ progress?
- Send them an email with important updates?
- Periodically update them when you remember to?
- Never update them at all?
Here’s my point: most people aren’t sufficiently reporting progress to their clients, and it costs them dearly.
Let’s take a quick look at what a white-label SEO report SHOULD look like before diving into how to make one.
First and foremost, your white-label reports should be comprehensive.
How would you feel if you only got updates on 5-10 of your ranks if you were tracking hundreds?
How would you feel if you only saw 1 type of data about your ranks?
You’d probably feel like you weren’t getting your money’s worth.
If the reports you send your clients aren’t detailed and comprehensive, I can guarantee you that they feel the same way.
No matter how you choose to send white-label reports, make sure you aren’t leaving your clients in the dark about any of their progress (or failures, which is even more critical).
Any reporting tool you choose to use should allow you to customize your white-label SEO reports.
Imagine sending your client a report that’s branded with another company’s logo!
Not only should the looks of the report be customizable, but the data should, too.
You should have complete control over the data that you show your clients. For example, if you want to highlight specific data points, you should be able to customize the reports for that purpose easily.
Reports need to be customizable for 3 reasons:
- It makes you look good.
- It gives you more control over your clients’ perception of your work.
- If your clients ask you to show additional info, it allows you to change your reports.
Why You Should Be Using White-Label SEO Reports
If you aren’t already using white-label SEO reports to keep your SEO clients updated, I have an essential piece of advice for you:
START AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
Trust me: your clients will thank you for the increased flow of information. Let’s look at 4 reasons you should start using white-label SEO reports TODAY!
Have you ever worked with someone that gave you the heeby-jeebies? Most of the time, it’s because they don’t share enough information with you.
When you think people are hiding something from you, you’re far less likely to trust them.
Reports keep an open line of communication between you and your clients, which helps them trust you and your work.
Trusting clients = long-term relationships = more cashflow
In other words, reports keep information flowing between you and your white-label customers, which improves your relationship with them over time.
Unfortunately, it’s really easy to make mistakes when manually checking and reporting ranks.
Using white-label reports fixes this issue entirely. Simply automate reports to send out every day, week, or month.
Then, the white-label SEO reporting tool will report those 100% accurate ranks to your clients whenever you choose.
Making sure your clients have access to entirely accurate data allows them to give you better input about strategy, and it helps them play a more significant role in the SEO process.
Let’s be honest. We all want to impress our clients.
Not only does it make us feel good, but it’s helpful for our relationships with our clients too.
If your clients are consistently impressed by the quality of your work, they will:
- Stick with you instead of switching to another provider
- Refer their friends to you
- Increase the amount of work that they purchase from you
Using white-label reports is very impressive to most SEO clients because it makes it look like you have your own SEO tool.
Using customizable reports from ProRankTracker looks professional and polished, which is more impressive than typing up your reports in Word or Google Docs.
Grow Your Business
What good would reporting be if it didn’t ultimately help you grow your business?
Anything you do that provides your clients with higher-quality service will help your business grow over time.
A satisfied customer is one of the best advertisements for your white-label SEO business, and great white-label reports help you get more satisfied customers.
Over time, you will generate referrals, positive reviews, and connections that will help you grow your SEO business. Reports form the backbone of your relationship with your clients, so it’s impossible to overstate how important they are for growing your business.

One of the most important things you can do to keep clients and grow your white-label business is to avoid disasters for your clients (duh!).
Trigger notifications are a type of report that is only generated when certain conditions are met.
For example, you might create a notification that is triggered when one of your ranks drops by 10%. You could create another notification that triggers when a rank jumps into a top-10 position.
To set up a trigger notification, just select “Trigger Notification” from the Reports Center. Then, choose the parameters that you want.
You can trigger notifications based on:
- Terms reaching the top position on the SERP
- Keywords reaching a certain threshold rank
- Terms ranking at a specific level
- An increase or decrease of a specified value
Trigger notifications will quickly become one of the one-personessential tools in your arsenal.
