New Feature: Cached Keyword Difficulty Scores

One of the most requested features of Keysearch was the ability to see more keyword scores without needing to check them manually. Today we’re happy to announce a new feature that does just that called “Cached Keyword Scores”. Normally we had what we called a “real-time cache” of keyword scores (7-30 days depending). When doing…

Explorer Now Uses Global Search Volumes

Today we have launched a change to our Explorer tool and Organic Keywords database. You may now notice that the search volume figures and traffic estimates have increased for all sites.

Ungrouping Close Variants

We here at Keysearch are declaring the war on close variants! What are close variants you ask? Close variants are keywords that Google finds similar and has decided to group together, showing one search volume for the entire group. This has caused search volumes to become highly inaccurate for certain keywords and has made SEO trickier than ever.…

Getting More Visitors Using Website Traffic Analysis

Since introducing our Explorer feature we have consistently been adding additional features that utilize that data in different ways. Tools that find your competitors keywords, our competitor gap tool just to name a few. One thing that we felt could take everything to another level was adding the ability to estimate the google traffic coming in for any ranking…
