Let’s say you created and published rules, but you need to make changes to them. You have a few options:

  1. Remove the entire rules sheet from RankSense. This will remove all rules that are present in the sheet and any tags that were added.

  2. Add or remove individual rules on the sheet, and update the sheet in RankSense. This can be used to remove select rules, modify existing ones, or add new ones.

Option 1 is appropriate for major changes, like if you started with one rules sheet and realized that you need to create separate sheets so you can tag them appropriately. However, if you just need to make some changes, Option 2 might be best.

Remove the rules sheet from RankSense

Removing the sheet is easy. Find the rules file in RankSense and click the trash can beside it.

You will see a pop-up asking you to confirm the removal. Click “Remove.” Allow the app to process the removal. The log will be updated as well.

Update the existing sheet

If you need to modify existing rules, or add or remove individual rules, you can simply reload the file in RankSense. Click the refresh icon beside the rules sheet you wish to update:

Your changes have now been imported but not published. Click “Publish” to publish the changes. Confirm that the changes are live, either on staging or by simply visiting the live site if you published to production.
