Use Views to segment keywords

You can use Views to segment keywords by search volume, ranking change, tag, or any other data aggregated or stored in Nightwatch. You can also use Views to segment keywords to track them based on different locations, languages, search engines, and more.

You can also use Views to filter keywords data into so many different segments, such as:

  • Search engines,

  • Devices (mobile or desktop),

  • Countries,

  • Languages,

  • Ranking changes,

  • Tags,

  • Keywords involving your brand name,

  • Broad keywords,

  • Specific keywords based on context,

  • And many other data aggregated or stored in Nightwatch.

This is so that the keywords can be analyzed and scrutinized separately based on their segments:

  • Average ranking of segmented keywords,

  • Search visibility of segmented keywords,

  • Click potential of segmented keywords,

  • and more.

This method will give you a really detailed view of your rankings, the site’s behavior, and trends on search engines, as well as allow you to understand which segments you should be focusing on to achieve better visibility and more conversions.
