Analyzing Keywords

Play 'Analyzing Keywords' video tutorial!Play 'Analyzing Keywords' video tutorial!

A keyword search returns a list of keywords sorted in descending order. Further analysis can be performed to help qualify keywords.


Keyword Analysis

To display further information about the keywords, click the Analyze button (graph icon) underneath the results or to use your own keyword list, use the Advanced Analyze Tool.

Analyze button


Results from Google are shown by default. To show data from additional search engines, tick the checkbox next to their name and click the Analyze button.

If the KEI/occurrence value for a keyword is cached (another user has fetched it in the last 90 days), Keyword Discovery will display the cached data immediately. A small graph image is shown for keywords with no cached results available.

Note: Cached results do not use analysis credits.

Analysis needed


To retrieve the occurrences and KEI in real time, select the keywords you wish to analyze, then click the Analyze button to retrieve the results in real time. An analysis credit will be used for each keyword selected.

Selected keywords


The occurrence/KEI columns will show the text 'working' while the data is being fetched, and will display the data once it has been retrieved.
Keyword Discovery will also display your remaining credits for the day.

Once you have used all your credits, you will no longer be able to fetch Occurrences & KEI for keywords until the next day. Your analysis credits will reset at midnight Australian EST (GMT +10).

The analysis results


The occurrence figures (an estimate of the number of pages in which each search term appears) are obtained from Google, Yahoo, MSN/Live/Bing and Ask. Each plan includes a different amount of analysis credits. You can check what each plan includes at the Subscription plans comparison page.

To view regional data such as Search Volumes, Search Engine Results, KEI figures and Predicted Daily scores, please select a regional keyword databases from the Select Region for Search Results drop-down menu.


What do these figures mean?

Query

This column shows the keyword results for your search. The results contain the exact keyword/phrase that was searched for.

See the Results Page manual page for more information.


Searches

This column contains the number of times that each phrase appears in the selected database. Search numbers should be used relative to other terms in the same database and not as an absolute figure. We do not extrapolate these numbers, they are exact counts we have recorded in our database from the users in our panel.

The search volumes are from the last 12 months for all databases.

See the Databases manual page for more information.
