Groups, folders, labels – 3 levels of keyword grouping

With SEOmonitor, you can easily keep your keyword portfolio well-organized, so that it brings new levels of insight along the way.

Updated over a week ago

In SEOmonitor’s Rank Tracker, your keyword portfolio can be organized in a 3-tiered grouping hierarchy, with Folders at the top of it, followed by Groups (either manually or automatically populated) nested in them. Labels are a different type of organization and can be applied to any keyword, just like tags.

How does this work?

When you create a campaign, you can choose from a predefined selection of Folders, with nested Smart Groups that follow a set of predefined rules that we identified as the most common use cases. This creates an initial automatic keyword structure for you.

If you decide to manually organize your keyword portfolio, you can do so either from the Edit mode or directly from the “+” sign in the lower right-hand corner:


Any list of keywords can be represented through a Group.

Groups can be regular (manually assigned keywords into groups) or Smart (automatically assigned, based on saved filters).

Groups can be organized under Folders.

See an example of the hierarchy below, where the smart group All tables and a regular group Coffee table are nested under the folder Table Types:

Groups can be nested in and out of Folders as you need. To do this, enter the Edit mode, by clicking on Edit on the top bar of the Rank Tracker view.

You can then use the Options menu against each group or folder, to organize it.

Any folder and the un-nested groups can be pinned to the top of the Group sidebar, for faster navigation to your most important ones.

Note: For now, the automatic folders namely Brand, Ungrouped, and Objective | Forecast, can't be unpinned or removed. We have a feature request to make it possible, so the user-created groups are more accessible.

Custom Labels

Keywords can have manually-assigned labels, created through the same Edit mode, by selecting keywords and then assigning new or existing labels to them. You can then use these for quick filtering within groups:

In the example above, we use the folder for the product category (tables), then we have the nested group for the sub-category (coffee tables), and we used the custom labels for materials (wood, glass).


How can I organize keywords on a third level of grouping?

Through labels, within the sub-groups of a folder.

Can a keyword be tracked in multiple groups? Does this impact the cost of tracking?

Yes, you can have a keyword in multiple groups and this does not impact your costs.

Can I have a group across different folders?

No, a group can only be nested under one folder. A workaround for this would be to duplicate the group for the other folders (you will be charged only once for the tracked keywords across several groups within a campaign).

I already have my keywords organized into groups or clusters. Can I import keywords into specific groups?

Yes, to upload keywords into specific groups, use the CSV import feature. In your CSV, list your keywords in the first column and their group names in the subsequent columns. Learn more about importing via CSV in this article.
