Semrush is excited to announce that we are updating our US database to significantly improve the accuracy and reliability of our search volume data.

Read the study here.

With better data at your disposal, you can be even more confident in forecasting potential traffic and SEO growth with your campaigns.

Ensuring the accuracy of an estimation metric like search volume all boils down to the quality of data we start with.

The more that data quality increases, the more effective our machine-learning algorithm is at calculating the search volume for any keyword in our database.

By incorporating new sources of data into our database, our algorithm will be able to predict reliable search volumes more consistently.

According to our research, the retrained machine learning algorithm provides, on average, an 18% more accurate volume calculation than the previous one.

In addition to the improved accuracy, the total size of the US keyword database is also growing from 2.58 billion to 3.07 billion keywords (19%).

We hope that these improvements will give you everything you need to plan your campaigns with confidence.
