level whose search results will be analyzed during the keyword grouping process we advise you to select a country where you're either promoting your website or are planning to if you have a website that supports multiple languages you can group your keywords for each language region separately doing so will allow you to take regional search results into account when optimizing your semantic core in the next step you need to select the google interface language and keep in mind that you need to go for the language that your target audience uses when running online searches next set the keyword grouping accuracy level on a scale of one to nine the keyword grouping accuracy level is the minimum number of urls that two keywords need to have in common in the serp in order to be grouped together let's say you set the keyword grouping accuracy level to three so what does our robot do it scans the keyword serp for the selected region and looks for matching results the analyzed keywords are then put together into a single group only if the top 10 search results for each keyword contain at least three identical web pages

there's a higher chance that you'll find three to four matching web pages in the serp then seven to nine identical ones so the higher the accuracy the fewer keywords will be put together into a single keyword group for informational websites and blog posts it's important to collect as many keywords as possible for a single page if you decide to break keywords down into groups too much and as a result creates several pages based on such groups they can start competing with each other in the serps something known as keyword cannibalization for such sites we recommend setting the keyword grouping accuracy level to three or four but if you're working with a site that contains a large number of pages and has a complex structure such as online stores it's better to break keywords down into more specific groups that is set a high keyword grouping accuracy level you can always repeat the grouping process using different accuracy settings to determine the most suitable option for you the next important step is selecting the keyword grouping method the available options are soft and hard if you go for the soft grouping method the system will find the keyword with

the highest monthly search volume and compare it with every other keyword in the list to see how many urls they have in common among the top 10 search results if the number of common urls matches the set keyword grouping accuracy level the keywords will be put into a single group every keyword in a group will have urls in common with the keyword with the highest monthly search volume but they may not have any urls in common with one another note that if you select the soft grouping method you will ultimately get fewer keyword groups but each group will contain more keywords it's best to choose this method if you have an aggregator site a blog or a media site now let's take a look at the hard grouping method it compares every keyword in the list against one another and groups them together if they have the same set of urls in the top 10 search results given the set grouping accuracy level since this method has a high grouping accuracy level it eliminates the possibility of a group containing any irrelevant keywords we recommend using the hard grouping method when you need to have keywords that match perfectly in a single group

for example say you're promoting a client's website and you make a promise that each of the keywords in the list will make it to the top of the search results for this reason it's important for these keywords to be as relevant as possible to the topic of the page and to the other keywords in the group the next step is the search volume check the tool can actually check the search volume of keywords during the grouping process having keyword search volume data can ultimately help you identify your most promising keywords and filter out unpopular ones now if you've already checked the search volume of keywords while you were doing keyword research you can upload the file to the tool where one column contains the keyword and the other indicates its search volume or you cannot check the search volume at all and finally the last step is adding the keywords you can either enter them manually right over here or import a file the cost of the keyword grouping process is calculated depending on the number of keywords added to the tool and whether or not you have decided to run a search volume check if everything is ready start grouping your keywords while the system is doing
