There are four steps in uploading a new keyword set:

  1. Create a .csv file in the correct format
  2. Upload the .csv file into KeyWI
  3. Double check the headers and adjust
  4. Choose settings and start clustering

You'll be an expert in a few minutes!

Create a .csv file in the correct format

In Google sheets or Excel create a file with at least 50 unique keywords and preferably also search volumes. Take a look at the screenshot below and see how we also added a header. This is optional though.

Next, export this file as a .csv file. Save it somewhere you can access it easily.

Uploading the .csv file into KeyWI

You can upload a new file containing keywords and search volume by clicking the plus icon in the side bar. The file should be a .CSV format and contain two inputs: keywords and search volume.

Follow the steps after clicking 'New' and then 'Keyword Set'. You can then drag 'n drop the .CSV file in the dropbox.

Make sure to add a file containing both keywords and search volumes. If you don't upload search volume we will set the volume to zero by default. Please upload at least 50 unique keywords to make our algorithm perform optimally.

You can also directly drag 'n drop a keyword set file in to the keyword set page, it's a huge dropbox. Try it out!

Double check the headers and adjust

Now you get to double check your upload data. Sometimes we couldn't recognise the right column for search volumes. Then you need to make sure the column is set correctly. See the video below.

Choose settings and start clustering

Next, you can choose which language, google domain and country you want to analyse the keywords in. Important here is to choose the settings your customers will be using. Then you'll get the insights you need. For example, I have a keyword set with English keywords for a Dutch customer audience. Then use the location "Netherlands" and set the language to "English".

We will enrich your keywords with the search engine data that is needed to cluster the keywords and predict the intention.
