Adding keywords through a CSV import or copy-paste
Easily add a list of new keywords to be tracked in your SEOmonitor campaign
Updated this week

With SEOmonitor, you can simply copy and paste a list of new keywords into an input or upload a CSV file. This can be done either in the initial campaign setup or anytime afterward.

How does this work?

You can add the keywords through the Rank Tracker, by either inputting them manually (or copy-pasting) or by uploading a CSV file:

Adding keywords through CSV enables you to also create groups and associate the keywords to those groups:

When adding keywords, these need to be organized in groups. If importing/pasting via the generic “All keywords” list, you need to manually select the group(s) you want them associated with. Or you can directly import/paste them through the specific group you need them in.

The keywords start processing in real-time and you have the status of the import in the footer:

They’re added to our processing queues right away, so you can get fresh SERP and Search data for them. Unless there are abnormal imports causing massive loads on the systems or there is a public incident confirming delays, you’ll have them done in no time.

Grouping considerations

  • Keywords representing your website’s brand name will be automatically added (only) to the Brand group.

  • Close variations of a keyword (aggregates) will always stay/move together when grouping them, so you might find some newly-imported keywords bringing in their already-tracked “children” or moving after their main variants.

  • Existing smart groups will show the updated list right away, when adding keywords that correspond to their set criteria.

Accepted characters for keyword and group names

For Keywords:

a-z A-Z 0-9 + - . ' $ % @ # () & _ a-zA-Z\p{L}\p{Mn}\p{Thai}/

For Groups/Folders:

a-z A-Z 0-9 - _ . $ % @ # & ' : () a-zA-Z\p{L}\p{Mn}\p{Thai} (no / or \ allowed)

Financial considerations

  • You will get a preview of the import, with the number of unique keywords in your list. If you have duplicates in the list or the CSV file, we’ll only add them once.

  • Re-importing already-tracked keywords will not cause them to be invoiced twice. And you can have the same keyword in multiple groups, and it would only count once towards invoicing.

  • To ensure you don’t go over some limit, you can set up Cost Control in Billing, within the Settings section: over all of the account, over any of the campaigns, or over some of them. Any kind of keyword import method will validate if the new import fits within the set limits:

  • When you no longer need the keywords, you can archive them. They'll be ready for unarchiving at a later time, if you need to do so.
