Our database

Can I have data on my website removed from your database?

Removal is not possible. The data we show is based on information that is publicly available. Although, if your website is beyond the top-100 Google and top-50 Yandex, it won’t show in our database.

Where does Serpstat data come from?

We are parsing Google top 100 and Yandex top 50 search results for each keyword from our database.

The stats on the number of keywords, domains, search suggestions or ads in our database can be found here

The service shows that the website does not use paid search. But I know for sure it does. Can you help me sort it out?

Keywords the website shows its ads for are probably not present in our database. The reason for this can be a low search volume for the keyword.


If the website is not ranking in Google top-100 or Yandex top-50, the analytics data for it won’t be available either.

What countries is data for?

Serpstat has data for the following countries and regions:

Google US

Google UK

Google CA

Google AU

Google BG

Google ZA

Google LV

Google RU

Google UA

Google BY

Google KZ

Google LT

Yandex Moscow

Yandex Saint Petersburg

Yandex Ukraine

Why does rank tracking tool show different positions from what I see in SERP?

There are several reasons why you see different positions in SERP and Rank Tracker.
1. Private Results. Search engines create personalized SERPs based on your search and browser history.
2. Search Filters. For example, your search parameters may be set to show only results from the last 24 hours.
3. Typos. Even slight difference in spelling or word order may cause the difference in positions.
4. Search Engine Updates. Search engines update SERPs constantly and sometimes the time of the update for your target keyword is different for rank tracker and search engine.
5. Search Region. Looking up the same queries in different areas will give different results, Make sure that you’re checking SERPs from the same area that you set in your Rank Tracker.

How fresh is the data presented?

The data on keywords and domains from our database is updated continually. However, due to the large size of the database we're not able to fully update the whole database every day. High-volume keywords are updated more frequently than the low-volume ones. The full database update cycle can take up to a month.

The Keyword Distribution Chart in the Overview report shows the data from our database as of the current date. 

Some queries don't return any results. Why is the data missing?

The possible reasons are as follows:

  •  the researched domain is not ranking in Google top 100 or Yandex top 50 search results for any keywords;
  •  the keywords domain is ranking for are missing from our database due to low search volume. Our database contains keywords with search volume of at least 10 more monthly searches.
I have allocated a large budget for AdWords campaigns this month - why I don't see any data on paid keywords and ads in Serpstat for my domain?

If your AdWords campaign has been launched recently, we may have not yet noticed your paid keywords, or when we updated the data on keywords from our database, your competitors' ads were shown in paid search results. You may also have used some narrow location targeting. There's a bunch of possible reasons for the missing data on your ads and paid keywords.

Why do I see the inconsistencies between my rankings returned by Serpstat and my actual rankings in SERP?

Possible reasons for this:

  • personalized search results for your query
  • we show data from our database  - it's not possible to update this large data amount on a daily basis. For this purpose, we recommend to use Serpstat Rank Tracker
  • volatile search results as a result of Google algorithm testing or updates

Plans and pricing

Which plan works best for me?

The plans differ primarily in the number of queries available per day and the number of returned results per query, keywords to track and pages to audit.

A query is a request you make to our database when entering a keyword or domain for research or navigating between reports on the service.

The limits for results per report imply that there's a fixed maximum number of results you can get per report.

For instance, let's take a closer look at Plan B limits. With Plan B, you can get up to 15 000 strings in a report. If a domain is ranking for 25 000 keywords, you'll get the first 15 000 results. To export all keywords of the domain, you'd need to upgrade to Plan C (40 000 strings per report). 

Except for Plan A (which doesn't provide access to "Missing Keywords" and "Cluster Research", Serpstat API and Google KZ database), all plans offer the same tools.

Starting with Plan B, users can access "Missing Keywords" and "Cluster Research", as well as get data via API.

Starting with Plan D, users are provided access to the Google KZ database.

How can I upgrade to a higher-level plan

If you have already subscribed to a paid plan and want to upgrade to a higher-level plan,  you can simply proceed to the new plan checkout on the Pricing page. The unused funds from the previous plan will be transferred to the new plan subscription.

Keyword Difficulty

What is Keyword Difficulty?

Keyword Difficulty - a keyword metric that shows how hard it is to get to the top 10 in SERP for a given keyword.

How do I read the KD score?

Keyword difficulty is measured in percentage, where the 0 is the lowest competition on a keyword and 100 -  the highest.    

The metric will help you prioritize your list and figure out what keywords are most likely to bring benefits in a short amount of time.

Why am I seeing the N/A in a KD column?

The KDs are available only for US at the moment.

For some keywords, we won’t show the KD because we didn’t parse the SERP for absolutely all keywords from our US database - a N/A will be shown in this case. If you are researching a keyword in the US database and see grey dots pulsing next to the keyword in the KD column, this means that the score is being calculated. The KD for that keyword will be displayed in a few minutes.

We’re going to add the KD metric for other countries later.

How long does it take to calculate the KD for a keyword?

The calculation of a KD score for a keyword from the US database takes up to 10 minutes, depending on the service workload.

KD for other databases is not displayed at the moment.

What is the difference between Keyword Difficulty and Competition?

Keyword Difficulty estimates how hard it would be to get a listing in top 10 organic search results for a keyword, while Competition shows how many advertisers are bidding to show their ads in the search results for a given keyword.

This gives a clue as to which promoting method is likely to produce better results in a short-term perspective:  SEO or PPC.

Keyword Grouping

What is Serpstat Keyword Grouping and why do I need it?

Serpstat Keyword Grouping is the process of grouping a set of keywords into clusters based on their semantic similarity.  
What is it for?

- developing a site structure (clustering will discover groups of keywords that are closely related);

- collecting targeted keywords for specific landing pages;

- crafting task specifications for copywriters;

- partitioning your keywords into commercial and informational search queries;

- identifying individual keywords that don’t fit any cluster topic.

How is Serpstat Grouping better than other tools out there?

Existing tools either produce keyword clusters without strong semantic similarity, or the resulting data set contains too many clusters, depending on the preferred Soft/Strong parameters. Also, a common drawback is that clusters with similar topics are scattered across the dataset.

Serpstat employs intelligent hierarchical clustering where clusters are combined in a supercluster. Unlike many competitors’ solutions, Serpstat grouping tool doesn’t set a cluster center (a keyword with the highest search volume which is compared with other keywords to detect the number of matching URLs in SERP) — Serpstat analyzes relationships among all clustered keywords.

Weak/Strong and Soft/Hard parameters provide unprecedented flexibility and accuracy of clustering.

Which parameters should I choose in the Grouping tool?

Weak requires keywords to have at least 3 common URLs in Top 30 search results to be combined into a cluster, while Strong defines 7 common URLs as a condition for creating a cluster.

Opting for Soft clustering means that a cluster can be created if at least one pair of keywords has 3 or 7 common URLs in Top 30 search results. Hard parameter requires that all keywords in a cluster have 3 or 7 common URLs in top 30 search results.

If the keywords belong to a specific topic, for example, watches of different brands, you can select Strong+Hard or Strong+Soft so that only the closest synonyms are merged into a cluster. The result of such grouping will be lots of clusters tailored for separate pages or particular categories.

If various products and services are the case, for example, a keyword collection for a large multi-category online store or beauty salon with a wide range of cosmetic treatments, it’s worth selecting Weak+Soft. The choice of Strong+Soft will produce more clusters and a possibility to get more topic-targeted clusters.

What are the Unsorted keywords?

Keywords that don’t fit any cluster are placed to the Unsorted folder. Most likely, they are not relevant to any other keyword group and can be removed from the dataset. If you think that they should be kept, the keywords can be moved to any of the created clusters or you can use them on separate pages.

How I am charged for Grouping?

Grouping credits on Serpstat are dubbed points. One point corresponds to one keyword. If you’re going to cluster, say, 1, 000 keywords, you’d be charged 1, 000 points.

After clustering a set of keywords, you can proceed to text analytics on the clustered keywords. Text Analytics charges you with an extra point for each analyzed keyword, i.e. performing clustering and text analytics analysis of 300 keywords requires 600 points.

Text Analytics

What is Serpstat Text Analytics and how do I use it?

Text Analytics is a tool designed to help you target multiple keywords with a single page.

For Text Analytics, you need a keyword cluster from the Grouping tool and an associated URL. Serpstat will analyze the text content on the page for the targeted keywords and page’s relevance to search queries from a cluster. Read on in the User guide.

What are the advantages of your Text Analytics tool and how do I benefit from it?

The text analytics can be performed in two ways:

  • based on a URL
  • without a URL (when you need general recommendations prior to setting up a page).

The TA report based on URL contains:

  • page’s relevance scores to keywords from a cluster;
  • words that should be placed into Title, H1 and Body;
  • word’s scores: LSI Rank, Chance and whether a word is present on the target page; also the TA evaluates word stuffing;
  • suggestions on whether you need to increase/decrease the number of words in the Body section (recommendations are provided based on the average number of words on competitor pages);

Text analysis without a URL will provide suggested words for Title, H1 and Body along with their LSI Rank, Chance and percentage ratio of a recommended word’s lemma to the total number of unique keywords on corresponding sections of  pages from the metatop .

How I am charged credits in Clustering and Text Analytics tools ?

Clustering credits on Serpstat are dubbed points. One point corresponds to one keyword. If you’re going to cluster, say, 1, 000 keywords, you’d be charged 1, 000 points.

After clustering a set of keywords, you can proceed to text analytics on the clustered keywords. Text Analytics charges you with an extra point for each analyzed keyword, i.e. performing both clustering and text analytics analysis of 300 keywords charges you with 600 points.
