How do I create custom segments (filters) in Nozzle?

Segments are an effective way to filter through your data. Nozzle has many built-in filters, but here's how you can create your own.

Segments are filters that allow you to switch between different types or "segments" of SERP data with ease. Nozzle has 84 built-in segments.

You can create and add a custom segment by following this simple process

From the Projects page, click the Settings Cog or Manage Keywords button near your project's name. This will bring you to the Keyword Manager page.

Select the Segments tab. This page will display all the built-in segments that you can use in any project, and you can easily use the search function to see what’s available.

If you don’t see what you want here, click the green Add Segment button.

This is also where you will see a list of all 84 built-in segments and a description of what they do. If you have already created a custom segment, it will appear here, too.

Give the segment a name and a description.

Click the Add Condition button.

This will bring up a drop-down menu with the full list of possible conditions. No one wants to scrolls through all that, so you can just start typing in the field the type of condition you’d like to add.

Segment add condition

Some of the most common conditions clients use include:

  • Rank
  • Domain
  • Video
  • Device
  • Review
  • Local
  • People Also Ask

As you begin to type in conditions like these, the list will show you a number of variations on that condition that you may also find useful.

Select the condition you want to include in this new segment.

You can select more than one condition to create your segment and can change the values of each condition you select.

You can create a segment that shows you the videos that rank in the top 5 on a desktop search by doing the following:

  1. Click Add Condition
  2. Type Video into the search bar.
  3. Select Result>Video>Is Video
  4. In the empty box in the new Result Condition, select True.

The bar will turn blue to let you know that you have created a valid condition. In this case, it is simply saying that you are only looking for results that are videos.

Now, to find the videos in the top five.

  1. Click Add Condition
  2. Type Rank into the search bar
  3. Select Result>Rank
  4. In the new condition, change the “=” to “<= Less Than/Equals”
  5. In the Values box, enter 5

Finally, one last condition:

  1. Click Add Condition
  2. Type “Device” into the search bar
  3. Select Device
  4. In the new condition, change the Values box to “desktop”

Click the green Save Segment button at the bottom of the screen when you are done.
