Delete Feature

Discussion in 'Keyword Tracker' started by Bazkaz, Apr 10, 2005.

    I had posted this at the end of the Yahoo/MSN update post, but wanted to see what you all think of the idea.
    Thx.

    Hi Shawn. Thanks for the amazing tools. I know you don't want people to add to much "junk" to the system and one of the reasons even more features haven't surfaced (I know those OptiGold people keep you pretty busy too).

    I was wondering if you could add an easier DELETE function. I have some clients that I don't do work for anymore that I was tracking roughly 15 words for on each of the three search engines over the life of their account. I would love to be able and take these all out, but I dread going in and clicking delete, letting the page refresh, clicking delete, letting the page refresh, clicking... you get the idea.
    SEMrush
    Any chance we could get a check box system or anything to be able to delete words faster? Even being able to use the URL filter that's already included and be able to check all boxes for deletion would be nice. Though "Check All" for boxes and "Check All" to update words would probably need to be called something different so people don't accidentally delete key words instead of updating them... (Granted most should have the common sense not to do it since it would require clicking delete... but there's always those few)

    Hopefully people would use it delete more frequently then and even clear up of their own time waiting for all their words to update. This would be especially effective for people who are pushing the limit on queries per day.

    I would like this feature also. Had to delete about 20 keywords the other day, and it took forever

    Yeah I took some more out and it's just gotten tougher since I added all of the MSN & Yahoo versions of everything.

    So 20 keywords = 60 entries in WordTracker (1 for Google, 1 for MSN, & 1 for Yahoo)

    Agreed! And it would probably make things easier on your end too. I know I was checking (daily) a bunch of keywords that had long since been dead on Google just because I didn't have the time to manually delete all 65 (!). It would be great if you could bulk disable as well...

    Had to delete 42 by hand today... Any chance this will happen Shawn?

    I was thinking and another option may be to just delete all keywords tied to a specific URL. Not sure if that's a possibility, but it would be nice. Though a select all feature when filtering by URL would still work just as well also.

    I have to delete several, but don't want to go through all that fuss... I might as well just leave them there :D

    I just think a way of hiding the 'disabed' would do. that way you can keep your old list right there and check anyone of them at a moment's notice ;)

    Just because I don't respond, doesn't mean I don't read. :)

    Hehe, I figured you had read it.

    I was just curious in your feedback to see if it was something we could eventually look forward too. :)
