Depending on the SEO PowerSuite tool you are using, you can specify keywords for your project in a number of ways.

In Rank Tracker, you can either enter your keywords when starting a project (at Step 3), or add them by clicking Add in the top menu.

In WebSite Auditor, you can add keywords to the project by choosing the webpage you wish to optimize and hitting Analyze.


Choose search engines

You can change your search engine preferences at any time by going to Preferences > Preferred Search Engines.


Change language settings

Switch between workspaces

SEO PowerSuite comes with a number of default workspaces that contain the most important data you'll need in a project.
To switch between workspaces, click the arrow on the top right, next to the gear icon.


Add/Remove columns in workspace

To control which columns you see in a workspace, hit the gear button on the top right,
choose the workspace to edit (e.g. Pages with HTML validation errors) and hit Edit.

You can then choose which columns to make visible as well as add filtering options in order to display just the data that matches your pre-set criteria.

To import/export data in SEO PowerSuite, hit File and choose Import or Export from the menu.

SEO PowerSuite allows you to import stats from other tools (e.g., you can import your Raven tools project, your Google Webmaster Tools backlinks or your IBP project) and export your keyword rankings, backlink stats, page ranking factors, link partner data, and more.

By the way, you can also quickly copy SEO PowerSuite data to clipboard. Just do the right-click and choose Copy to clipboard.
