Does TPT Search in incognito mode really matter? SEOTpreneur News 22

Here is today’s controversial TPT SEO thought of the day:

Searching on TPT in incognito mode doesn’t make a difference in search results

Yeah, I don’t know if I fully believe that sentence either.

But hear me out.

This TPT SEO Keyword Tool uses Google Sheets to pull up the first 10 pages of a TPT search term. It’s a quick and easy way to see where your products rank.

The formulas in Google Sheets use Google servers (computers) to visit the TPT website.

So, it’s basically like doing a TPT search in incognito mode on someone else’s computer.

Every time I check the keyword tool results with the actual TPT search results, they match up exactly.

It doesn’t matter if I’m in incognito mode or in regular browser mode – I’m getting the same search results.

​Watch this new YouTube video to see what I mean.

Here’s a question for the SEOTpreneur Email Community…

(That’s you!)

Can anyone find a current example where searching on TPT in incognito mode produces different results?

I know we all have experiences like this in the past, but the TPT Search Algorithm is constantly evolving.

Today is Sunday April 28, 2024 and I’m trying to figure out the following:

  1. Does it make a difference if you’re logged in to TPT when you search?
  2. Does searching in incognito mode produce different results?
  3. Does searching on a different computer produce different results?
  4. Can anyone find an example where the search result in the TPT keyword tool Google Sheet produced a different result when you actually visit the search page from your own computer?

I’m looking for new examples, as opposed to things we’ve read or experienced in the past.

PS: TPT has fixed the Product Stats CSV glitch! CSV files between Tue Apr 16, 2024 to Tue Apr 23, 2024 are unreliable. This affect TPT Sellers who use free Google Sheet tools below (or paid) TPT Data tools to calculate conversion rate, preview rate, and review rate.

PPS: Hurry! The TPT keyword tool is free until the end of this month. 118 people have already downloaded it which means there are many people who subscribe to this email newsletter who haven’t gotten it yet. Spread the word – it will cost $120 very soon…
