Nightwatch allows you to tag each keyword to label their different characteristics to observe them separately.

On this page:

1. Assigning Tags when adding keywords

You can tag them one by one or in the batch once you add them. All you need to do is:

  • Select the ones you want to tag,

  • Click Actions,

  • and assign tags.

The tags that you added will show in the Tags column on your keywords list.

2. Assigning Tags to the existing keywords

You can also add tags after you already added your keywords to the tool by following the steps below:

1. Go to the keywords list of a chosen URL,

2. Update one of the columns to Tags,
2. Click on a tiny + sign in the column next to the keyword that you would like to assign a tag to enter the tag:

You can choose multiple already added keywords and assign tags in a batch by following the steps below:

1. Go to the keywords list of a chosen URL,
2. Use filters to filter out the keywords you would like to tag,
3. Mark all and click on Actions and choose Assign Tags (or Remove Tags if you would like to remove them) from a dropdown:

3. Removing Tags

You can remove tags as easily as adding them.

  1. Filter the ones you would like to remove, using an advanced filter Keyword tag is XXX,

  2. Select them all,

  3. Click Actions, and Remove Tags.

Practical Use: Branded vs. non-branded keywords

You probably already know that branded keywords (the ones that include the brand name or a variation of it) have completely different characteristics in terms of user behavior and rankings. They have the highest CTR and rankings and the lowest bounce rates. Because users already know that they are looking for your brand specifically, branded keywords should be treated very differently.

The first thing we should do is differentiate the keywords: this will help us understand our search engine trends and behavior. The easiest way to accomplish this in Nightwatch is to tag them as branded and non-branded and then visualize them on a View based on their tag.
