Advanced Discovered Keywords Beacon


The Advanced Discovered Keywords Beacon is a powerful tool, which helps uncover the keywords any domain you choose is ranking for across multiple search engines. In other words, what keywords am I being found for which I don't already know about. This is effectively a way to search the search engines gShift maintains data for. The keywords returned are graded and displayed in order of relevance using a gShift algorithm, which factors in:

  • average monthly search volume
  • competition
  • age (when last found in Search Results)
  • the number of search results returned

This Beacon displays keywords, their search volumes, their current and best positions for the selected time period and the number of search results returned. 

Relevant keywords may be Followed directly from the Beacon. Those which are not deemed relevant can be Ignored, so they do not show up again.
