Available sourcesTopvisor Search volume tracker pulls search volume data from three sources:
- Google Ads (Keyword Planner), locations supported;
- Yandex.Direct (Yandex.Wordstat), locations supported.
- Webmaster Mail.ru, locations not supported.
Each sources uses its own algorithm to track and measure search volume. The names match the original tools names.
Google Ads (Keyword Planner)
Google Keyword Planner displays the number of average monthly searches (Average Monthly Searches). Note that Keyword Planner calculates the average monthly searches for the selected location and search type (desktop or mobile search) for the past 12 months.
Google Ads supports three match types that trigger an ad. But Google Keyword planner pulls search volume data for the[Exact] match only. Other match types and operators are available in the ad campaign settings only.
• Broad — Search query may include typos, synonyms, similar phrases or other relevant variants.
• "Phrase" — Search query has to include a phrase inside quotation marks and may include some additional words.
• [Exact] — Limits a search query to a phrase or its closest variants.
Keyword research tool shows keyword search volume data for 30 days before the database update (the date displayed on the right, above the keyword research results). Keywords searched less than 5 times are skipped by the tool.
The tool pulls search volume data from Yandex desktop search (including all supported Yandex country domains: ua/by/com.tr), and Yandex mobile search. The keywords don't have to be targeted in any ad campaign.
Match typesYandex.Direct supports different keyword matching options that trigger a PPC ad. Each type uses a specific search operator: " " operator (quotes), ! operator (exclamation mark), [ ] operator (square brackets) and their combinations.
Broad — search query has to include all of the chosen keywords, but not to be limited to them (in any order and grammatical form). Prepositions are omitted.
"Search query" (operator " ") — limits the search query to the keywords inside quotation marks – excluding the longer tail. For example, a keyword "tickets to New York" will make the ad show up if the search query is identical to "tickets to New York", "ticket New York:", "New York to Ticket" etc. But phrases like "tickets New York buy online" won't trigger an ad.
"!Search !query"(two operators: " " and !) — fixes the grammatical form (plural/singular, capitalization, etc.) and the word order.
Operator [ ] (square brackets) fixes the word order in a search query and can be combined with the other operators. For example:
"[Search query]" or "[!Search!query]"
A selected match type will affect and can change Search volume data.
You can use the following additional operators when needed: + (plus), - (minus), ! (exclamation mark) and their combinations. - operator (negative keywords) allows to exclude keywords with the particular words. + operator (plus) forces the tool to include prepositions and conjunctions that are omitted and ignored by the search engine and keyword research tools.
