Tracked keywords are keywords that are added in the Rank Tracker tool, to track positions in Google search results for a given website.

Each tracked keyword consists of 1 keyword, for 1 location, in 1 project.

For example, if you track 3 keywords in 2 locations, then 6 rank tracker keywords will be consumed:

Another example is if you are tracking 1 Tracked keyword with the same location, but for two projects, then 2 rank tracker keywords will be consumed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I have Frozen keywords?

Any Tracked keywords that exceed the tracked keywords on your plan will be frozen, and will not have their rankings updated.

You can either purchase additional Tracked keywords to unfreeze them, or delete them from the project.

If I delete a project that already has Tracked keywords, will that give back more Tracked keywords to be used in other projects?

Yes, equal to the number of tracked keywords used in that deleted project.

What is the max number of Tracked keywords that a single project can have?

10,000 keywords per project. Even if your plan’s limit is more than 10,000 Tracked keywords, it will not increase the number of keywords you can add to any particular project.
