Increase keyword limit in Keywords tool
Please please raise the limit for the keyword grader!
Zachary Raineri commented
I certainly understand the costs and necessity of cost control. Have you guys thought about allowing users to submit our API's from some of the sources you use and allow us pay for increased limits through them? I'm certain some of your data sources are tools we as an agency are already paying for and already paying for api credits

Would add more votes if I could - at least having the ability to purchase more as an add-on seems to make sense. If Hubspot doesn't want to bear the cost (as Josh Payne said in 2011 in another comment) users who need this flexibility would surely be happy to. Being limited in the number of keywords you can use is a real hindrance to the effectiveness of Hubspot as an Inbound marketing tool because it arbitrarily restricts the variety and number of campaigns you can track.
As JF commented as well, we're talking about a long-tail strategy here. I don't need to know that "marketing" and "advertising" had however many million hits last month - I need to know that 1,000 phrases that include marketing and 1,000 phrases that include advertising have various search volumes and rankings and that we can block-out coherent segments of them to try and improve our standing.

I couldn't agree more. At the least, an option to purchase additional keywords should be added.

This should be 5000 ASAP. Between blogs, additional products and services, growth in content and landing pages as well as video.... we need more keywords.

This is an area where I think HubSpot really needs to improve to compete - 1,000 keyword limit is so limiting especially considering that the inbound marketing methodology focuses on many long-tail keywords as part of a solid keyword strategy. This needs to change!
I work in the highly-fragmented part of the IT industry where you're not legit or cool unless you know more jargon or geek-speak than the next person. This is what "inbound marketing" was invented for....the era of 500+ TV stations and 5 gazillion YouTube videos. 1,000 keywords is woefully inadequate given the long-tail nature of what we target.

Hi, I can appreciate the the legitimate business need to have unlimited amounts. The limit was put in place primarily as a cost control -- Keyword Grader is probably the most expensive part of HubSpot for us to run. We can certainly keep in mind this common request as we re-evaluate the limits (as we do periodically). Or the option to purchase more keywords.

Agreed! We work in 49 states and hundreds of cities, so my keyword grader filled up in about 2 days.
I geo target and really could benefit from a higher limit of keywords in the keyword grader. Please!
