Keyword Discovery Methodology

Keyword Discovery currently collects search term data from just over 180 search engines world wide. Our database contains approximately 32 billion searches from the last 12 months.

We do not use other keyword research sources like Google or the Overture search term suggestion tools in our data. These may be provided as part of the Keyword Discovery service, but are separate from our core database.

How we collect the data

The search engines listed below either provide their complete search logs and these are imported in full into our database, or samples are collected by scraping search statistics from ISP logs and other sources.

Data is collected on daily basis however due to the index size, the online database is updated monthly.
