Eugene Lata
VP of Marketing at Serpstat
The New Year is just around the corner, and it's the best time to take stock of the expiring year and define the targets for the upcoming one. We launched several databases, added some new tools and ran several successful campaigns.

All our departments were working as a single unit to reach common goals and make our tool better. In this post, I want to review our hottest updates of 2017 and remind you how you can benefit from them.
Our development team is a core element of our service. They are in charge of translating the vision of the product into working software. Let's take a closer look at their achievements.
We added Keyword difficulty parameter for Google US and Google AU that shows how difficult it is to rank high for the requested keyword
We released Keyword Clustering and Text Analytics tools to help you group a huge number of phrases into clusters and optimize the text on your page to rank for the whole clusters instead of keywords
We launched 4 new regional databases: Google Germany, Google France, Google Italy, Google Spain
Our keyword databases keep growing manifold
Now Serpstat has 20 databases for 16 countries: USA, Canada, Australia, UK, South Africa, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia + 4 we added this year.
Last year we had 113 M keywords in our database. Now we have:

478 M keywords in keyword research;

206 M keywords in domain research.

With our expanded databases, you can use Serpstat as a long-tail keyword tool and carry out a comprehensive long-tail keyword research.
In 2017 we released 240 updates
We improved and updated all our existing modules: Rank Tracker, Site Audit, Backlink Analysis, Keyword Research, and Competitor Analysis.
The number of search suggestions has increased by 253 M

Support & Customer Success
Until this year our support department was a mix of Support and Customer Success, where every specialist was responsible for both these directions.

Now it's a Support & Customer Success department, which main objective is not only answering the users' questions but building relationships with the already existing customers, helping them meet their goals and showing them how to get the maximum benefit from the tool (more here).
