Once you have added your domain(s), the next step is to add keywords so you can start tracking. In this guide we will go in-depth on how to add relevant keywords you want to track, as well as setting up them up to fit your needs.

Adding Keywords

Step 1)

Click on your domain and go into the keywords section, and click on "Add keywords"

Step 2)

You now have 4 options:

  • Enter keywords manually 
  • Use keywords suggestions
  • Import keywords from Google Search Console
  • Import keywords from third parties

If you are not going to import from third party software, we recommend integrating your Google Search Console account to AccuRanker and import keywords that way. This will save significant time when adding keywords

Keyword Options

Let's look into keyword options on the right side and get familiar with them.

Search locale 

It is the country in which you wish to track your keywords. 

Location 

It can be any specific region, city or even address. This comes in very handy if your focus is on local SEO, as you can add as many locations as you only wish.

The location field should be left blank when the goal is country based ranking data. This field should only be used if you target a specific area. (Bing only supports locations in the US.)

Search engines and device types

Regardless of subscription type, you can track your keywords on both Google and Bing, as well as Desktop and Mobile. 

With mobile continues to increase its market share over Desktop, we always recommend tracking on both device types.

While Google is the king of search engines, Bing has a strong presence in certain markets and target groups, and therefore should not be ignored.

Tags 

Tagging enables you to put your keywords into different categories. 

For example: You can tag a keyword and assign it to a specific topic. Thanks to that, you will find an easy way to organize your keywords in order to see what product group they belong to or what their priority is.
