Welcome to SEO PowerSuite video training series
In this video you'll see how to use Rank Tracker's keyword suggestion tool and find new keywords to optimize your website for.
Let’s launch Rank Tracker and open a project. To start researching keywords, switch to the Keyword Research module and press the Suggest Keywords button. Here, you can choose from 20 keyword tools to get suggestions from.
Let’s start with Google AdWords Keyword Planner. First, enter the seed keywords you’d like the suggestions to be based on. At the same step, you can also specify negative keywords to exclude certain terms from the search, and adjust country and language settings, if necessary. Click Next to proceed. If you haven’t synced your AdWords account with Rank Tracker yet, you’ll need to do it now. Enter your email and password and hit OK.
Rank Tracker will now start gathering keyword suggestions for you. In a minute, you’ll get hundreds of keywords directly from Google, along with the search volume, competition, and Keyword Efficiency Index for every term.
Select the keywords you’d like to add to your project (it’s OK to select all terms at this stage). Rank Tracker will now automatically group your keywords by topic so you can easily navigate through your keyword list.
In the same way, you can use all other keyword research tools to diversify your keyword list: Google Search Console, Google Autocomplete, Related Searches, Keyword Discovery, SEMRush, etc. This will give you hundreds of long tail, low competition keywords that are hidden in Google AdWords.
All keywords you’ve found will be added to the Keyword Research module so you can analyze them further before you pick the terms for your campaign.
That’s it for now! Thanks for watching. In the next video, we’ll be organizing and managing keyword groups with Rank Tracker.
3 Manage keyword groups
Learn how to organize your keywords and manage keyword groups in Rank Tracker.
Hey there, and welcome to SEO PowerSuite video training. In this video, you’ll learn how to organize your keywords and manage keyword groups in Rank Tracker.
When you search for keyword ideas, Rank Tracker automatically bundles the terms into semantic keyword groups so you can easily navigate through all your keywords, and target entire topics instead of individual terms. You can manage and re-organize keyword groups both in the Keyword Research module, and the target groups you’ve picked for your campaign in Target Keywords -> Keyword Map.
Let’s say you’d like to review the keywords you just found in Rank Tracker’s Keyword Research module and pick the best ones for your campaign. Select Added today in the drop-down menu next to Keyword Groups.
To filter out irrelevant terms, go through your keyword groups one by one and, if necessary, delete the terms or groups that aren’t relevant to your business by right-clicking them and hitting Remove keywords.
If you need to move some keywords from one group to another, select those terms and hit the Move to another keyword group button.
If you’d like to merge several keyword groups into one, highlight them, right-click the selection, and hit Merge groups.
Finally, to rename a keyword group, hover the mouse over its name and click on the little pencil that appears to the right.
That’s it! Thanks for watching. In the next video, we’ll be analyzing keyword efficiency with Rank Tracker to help you pick the best keywords for your campaign.
