Did you know? Searching for multiple tagged keywords in SERP Tracker

SERP Tracker is one of Raven’s oldest and most popular tools, used to track weekly ranking updates for tracked keywords. And in the event you’re tracking a large number of keywords or phrases, SERP Tracker allows you to tag your keywords with one or multiple tags to help keep your data organized.

Tagging keywords in SERP Tracker
To tag your keywords in SERP Tracker (Metrics > Ranking), click on the Tag link to the right of any keyword, enter your tag and then click Add. Repeat these steps for any additional tags you’d like to use for a keyword.

Searching for tagged keywords
Once your keywords are tagged in SERP Tracker, you can search for them using the Search field. You can search for a keyword by typing in the keyword or keyword phrase, but being able to search by tag can be helpful if you only want to see a certain set of keywords that you’ve grouped together by tag.

Searching for tagged keywords is a bit different than other searches in Raven, as you don’t need to use Boolean operators like AND or OR.

To search for keywords tagged with one tag, you’ll need to enter “tag:tagname,” with “tagname” being the tag you’re searching for. For example, if we wanted to search for all of the keywords in SERP Tracker that we’d tagged with “marketing,” we would enter tag:marketing. Including “tag:” lets Raven know that we’re looking for tags, not keyword phrases.

To search for more than one tag in SERP Tracker, add “tag:tagname” again in the search field. For example, if we wanted to find all keywords we’re tracking with the tags “advertising” and “marketing,” we’d enter tag:marketing tag: advertising.

If you have a keyword that you’ve tagged with more than one tag and decide you’d like to exclude it from a search based on one of its tags, you can use the minus sign to do so. If we wanted to search for all of our keywords tagged with “marketing” but wanted to exclude any of those keywords that also were tagged with “brands,” for example, we’d use tag:marketing
-tag:brands.

This included the four keywords that are tagged with “marketing” from above, but excluded the keyword that was tagged with both “marketing” and “brands.”

Be sure you’re not putting a space between the colon and the tag when searching, and if you have any trouble, just shoot us an email at support@raventools.com.
