According to our GSC data, the keyword “ahrefs” got 25,436 impressions in June (in the U.S.): GSC data on Ahrefs' total impressions But if we look at the data from GKP for the same month, it shows a search volume of 33,100: GKP data on Ahrefs' total search volume This means that the “GKP/GSC” ratio for this keyword is 1.3x. Not too bad, but not very accurate either. So what is causing this discrepancy? Apparently, the GKP search volume for the keyword “ahrefs” includes the search volumes of all its misspellings that we can see in our GSC: ahref (2,826 impressions) hrefs (906 impressions) aherfs (435 impressions) arefs (267 impressions) a hrefs (224 impressions) aherf (185 impressions) ahrfs (100 impressions) etc We know this because GKP groups them together (and shows the same search volume that it shows for “ahrefs”): List of misspellings of "Ahrefs" grouped together But when a keyword’s search volume accounts for its misspellings, it’s not that big of a deal, right? In fact, it can actually be quite useful. Well, there are some cases when GKP is grouping things that should not be grouped. And this can be misleading for us SEOs. For example, the keyword “chusky” has a search volume of 550k in the U.S. GKP thinks that it’s a misspelling of “husky” because those two keywords are being grouped together: "Chusky" and "husky" grouped together But if you look at the search results for the keyword “chusky,” you’ll instantly see that it’s not a misspelling. Rather, it’s a unique dog breed, meaning that it should have a distinct search volume of its own. Pictures of chusky dogs Same story with these four keywords: “red room,” “red rose,” “red rock,” and “red robin”: "Red room,” “red rose,” “red rock,” and “red robin” grouped together GKP treats them as one, but you don’t even have to check the search results to know that these things are not the same. A few more examples: american banks & bank of america mosquito bites & mosquito bits book a driver & drive book In all honesty, these kinds of “false groupings” are not common, but they may cause you lots of headaches should you stumble across one of them. What’s a lot more common (and irritating) is that GKP doesn’t show distinct search volumes for closely related search query variations. Dividing the workload like this whatsapp number list allows both the vendor and the affiliate to focus on their strengths. The improvements are similar on desktop and mobile. Most of the focus in 2021 was on mobile results. For example, the following search queries are grouped together in GKP with no way to see individual search volumes: comparing vpns compare vpn comparison vpn compare vpns vpns compared vpn compare vpn comparison vpn comparisons This “grouping” issue is then being picked up by every SEO tool that pulls its search volume data from GKP (and nearly all of them do that). But here at Ahrefs, we mix keyword data from multiple sources (including many years of historical clickstream data). This allows us to “un-group” search queries and show the distinct search volume for each variation:
