Getting started with Grow Flow
Updated over a week ago

What is Grow Flow?

Grow Flow is one of Surfer's AI-powered Add-ons that can be purchased on top of your subscription. It gives you automated and low-effort tasks to grow and optimize your domains. Thanks to Grow Flow, you can achieve the biggest SEO impact on your domains with the best ROI.

Those tasks are based on your own domain, growth, and competition. You have plenty of unused resources on your pages, and Surfer will help you uncover them!

What is required to create a Grow Flow project?

You will need to purchase a Grow Flow slot to connect to a domain. 1 Grow Flow slot costs $9, but you can purchase as many slots as you want if you have multiple high impression domains. If you're on a Max plan, your plan already comes with 1 free Grow Flow slot.

To connect your domain to Grow Flow, you will need the following:

  • a domain that generates at least 100 impressions per day

  • a Google Search Console with the domain connected as a property

  • the same Google Search Console integrated with your Surfer account

Surfer will only pull the domains from your Google Search Consoles that are generating enough traffic to generate the tasks, so please first make sure that your domain does meet these criteria.

Connecting Google Search Console

To connect your Google Search Console to Surfer, go here and click the Sign in with Google button.

Note: You can purchase and add as many domains as you need from multiple Google Search Accounts, and your Surfer login e-mail does not have to be the same as the one you want to connect.

When connecting your Google Search Console, remember to grant Surfer all required permissions. Otherwise, we will not be able to pull all the necessary data.

Creating a project

With your Google Search Console properly connected, you should now see your domain available to connect to Grow Flow. If there is more than one property for the same domain in your Google Search Console (for example, one with www and without www), we will pull the one that generates more traffic.

Choose the domain(s) you would like to connect to Grow Flow. 

The next step is selecting your targeted location. Surfer will present you with a list of only those locations where your domain is already making at least 100 impressions daily. We need this traffic to be able to provide you with relevant tasks.

If both the domain and the location are selected properly, click the "Add" button at the bottom, then you will be directed to a checkout page where you can pay for the domain slots you have added. You will be billed immediately for the slots you just purchased. Connected projects can only be removed by the Support Team - don't hesitate to reach out to us via live chat or at [email protected].

Project navigation

Once your domain has been connected, you can move to the project dashboard by choosing the project on the left-side panel or by selecting "See tasks" on the right side.

You are all set - you can now go through your tasks list for your project. Once you finish your first task, your report should be generated within 2 weeks.
