Entering your Nozzle Workspace for the first time? Let's get you set up.
Welcome to your Nozzle Workspace!
First, let's take a quick look around.
Every time you log in to Nozzle, you'll be taken to the home screen. Here you'll be able to see a ranking summary for your project (or projects) after you've configured your keywords and brands.
You can always return to this home screen by clicking Projects in the left-side navigation menu.
Ranking data is shown on dashboards.
Click on the View Dashboards button or your project name to go to the Project Overview page, or click on the Keyword Groups, Top Brands, or Keywords links across the top of your project summary to go straight to those specific dashboards.
Click the Settings Cog next to the project name or the Manage Keywords button to go to the Keyword Manager page, where you can add/remove/modify your keywords, brands, and segments.
On the Keyword Manager page, you'll be able to create or modify a Keyword Source, or switch to the Brand and Segment tabs.
Click Users in the left-side menu. This will take you to the page where you can invite other members of your company to your Workspace. Simply click +Invite Users to get started.
You can also add users by clicking Settings in the bottom left of the screen and then selecting Invite users. This will bring you to the screen where you can input the new users and their emails.
Managing Your Account
The Settings menu at the bottom left of the page includes a number of options for managing your account, including:
- Invite Users - Add more users to your Workspace.
- Jobs & Tasks - This includes a list of your previous exports.
- Billing - Manage your subscription, download invoices, and use the calculator to see how many SERPs you need.
- Workspaces - See all the Workspaces attached to your account.
- Feedback - Provide feedback on the tool.
There are options in the top left corner of the page where you can change the theme (we suggest the Auto mode), see your notifications, get help, and collapse the sidebar.
💬 If you ever have questions or concerns, feel free to use the chat bubble in the bottom right corner to chat with a member of the Nozzle team.
Now it's time to input your keywords.
After selecting a Keyword Source or choosing to creating a new one, follow these basic steps:
- Name your Keyword Source
- Paste in your phrases using the Add Keyword Phrases button
- Select your desired devices
- Select your desired locales
- Set a tracking schedule.
You will find more concise instructions and a tutorial video on adding keywords into Nozzle in this article.
Add keyword groups as desired.
Note: The default Basic Keywords mode is sufficient for most new keyword sources. Click here for information on the others.
🚨 Every time you make changes, save your keywords before navigating to a different tab or page.
Do I need multiple Projects?
Projects are containers for different projects or entities. You will want multiple projects if you are an SEO agency with several clients whose keywords are completely separate.
You can learn how to create projects in this article.

📌 If you have a non-agency company, a single project will probably work great for you since your company's keywords will all be loosely related.
Now you're ready to start tracking Brands.
Nozzle allows you to track all the elements of your online brand, including your social media presence, your website, and your YouTube channel.
You can also track your competitors' brands in the same way.
When you monitor by brand, rather than just domain, you can get a better impression of your complete online presence and make the most of your SEO efforts.
What are Segments?
Segments are built-in and custom filters that allow you to switch between, or compare, different types or "segments" of SERP data with ease.
We've written several blog posts that can provide a little extra guidance and some tips on how to use segments to track various SERP features. Here are a few:
- Find your top competitors
- Track local pack results
- See who owns all the featured snippets
- Monitor video rankings
