What's new in the keyword grouping tool?

If you've been busy managing thousands of keywords for SEO, we've got great news: we've updated our keyword grouping tool to make it more flexible and insightful.

From now on, you can easily group your keywords and create subfolders for topical clustering.

We've also added the drag-and-drop function to move keywords between groups. And we hope you'll enjoy the simplified interface and synchronized keyword groups in all modules of Rank Tracker.

Tree view of your keyword groups in folders and subfolders

Find the tree view list of all your keyword groups in the right-hand pane of the workspace. Instead of flat folders per one keyword group, the upgraded clustering tool lets you create subfolders. Now you can overview the hierarchy of all your topics and subtopics at a glance. Such logical clustering makes it easier to audit your site structure, plan content or marketing campaigns.

Drag-and-drop feature to manage keywords across groups easily

The keyword grouper has the drag-and-drop functionality to elegantly move keywords between groups. Simply select and drop any keyword to a different group. If you only need to copy the keyword to a different folder, select it while pressing the Ctrl button and drop it where you need. Yeap, that's right, now one keyword can belong to several keyword groups!

Cross-cutting functionality for keyword grouping across all modules

Now Rank Tracker synchronizes content and structure of keyword groups between the Sandbox and Keyword Map. The groups you create, move, or delete in the Sandbox will appear the same in the mapping tool. Such write-through keyword grouping aims to create a simpler and more coherent workflow between keyword research and rank tracking.

Automatic keyword grouping algorithm applied at your convenience

You can run the automatic keyword grouping tool manually whenever you need it. The algorithm sorts out keywords into groups according to semantic similarity. You tune the level of similarity yourself. A high similarity will produce lots of small groups of closely related keywords. Whereas low-similarity keywords will be grouped into fewer in number, but larger clusters, with words less strictly related to each other.

Try the new keyword grouping tool

Now you can group keywords efficiently and effortlessly without all the hustle in spreadsheets. Still in two minds? Launch Rank Tracker and go through the Keyword Research features to collect a couple hundreds of keyword phrases around your target keywords. Next, switch to the Keyword Sandbox where all the grouping work will take place.

How to use the new keyword grouping tool

All discovered keywords in existing projects will be transferred to the new layout
Regroup keywords automatically by semantic similarity
For new projects, you will see two root folders in the Keyword Research module: All Keywords and Ungrouped. For existing projects, spot also two folders with all keywords you already have: Rank Tracking for tracked keywords and the old Sandbox.
Create a new group from the context menu or by hitting the special button
To create a new folder, call the context menu with the right-click on any keyword group or hit the New Group button at the bottom of the right-hand pane.
Group keywords manually in Keyword Sandbox
Drag and drop keywords
Select a keyword/keywords and drop them to any group you need, holding the left mouse button. To copy the keyword to a different folder, select it with a mouse while holding the Ctrl key and move to the necessary keyword group.
Drag and drop keyword groups
Likewise, move subgroups into a different group using drag-and-drop. Select any subfolder you need with the left mouse click and move it to the required directory.
Define filtering conditions to sort keywords
Fold and unfold keyword subgroups with a single click
One left click on the keyword group folds or unfolds it. You will find all subgroups in the position they were before the group was wrapped up.
Add tags for easy keyword management
Track or untrack keyword rankings with a single click
One click on the double arrow adds a keyword to Rank Tracking. Another click cancels rank tracking. All this time, the keyword keeps showing up in the Sandbox. As simple as that.
Compare SEO metrics to choose the best keywords
Delete keywords via the Delete key, context menu, or drag and drop to trash
If you delete a keyword group in the Target Keywords module, it will be also deleted in the sandbox. The tool will warn you how many keywords are located in the keyword group, so you won't delete any keyword group by mistake.
