Keyword import


Before you run a rankings report you should import keywords into your project. A keyword is a single word,
several words or a phrase that is relevant to the contents of a website. You can add keywords on the
Keywords page case-by-case for every project.

There's no limit placed on the number of keywords or keyword groups you can add to projects. Keyword
and group order is preserved: keywords within groups are sorted in the same order as in the keyword list for
import.
