    My sites keywords keep on increasing according to Semrush.
    I think it's a good thing but what makes it. I had done something on my site and I wonder why does it happen.
    If anyone gets any idea, I'll really appreciate it.

    'Increasing' means what. Tell specifically.

    It means that Google searches have matched text on your site and visitors are clicking it, I believe. In other words you're organically ranking keywords and it's a good thing.

    ... it's called a ranking algorithm, it's finding your site relevant to certain keywords and placing it there. As you acquire more backlinks and/or add new content you go higher in the ranks and/or rank on more keywords.

    Thanks for your reply. Sorry for the misundertanding.
    For example, I used to have 2300 keyword ranking at the top 100 of google and now I have 3000 keywords ranking at the top 100.

    That just means your site is now ranking on google for 700 more keywords.

    If you have added more content it may be from that, or google just needed some time.

    Hello JimmyMi,

    It's a nice question. If you want to increase keyword ranking create more backlinks and also focused on Guest posting. Guest posting is a good technique to increased keyword ranking.

    Backlinks Help you to rank higher. New Content helps you rank for more keywords on search engine.

    For eg: Your site is about Cars and you are ranking for keywords "Sedan" "hatchback" and "Sport car". You publish new content about Yellow car, Blue car and red car, So now your site is ranking for Yellow car, Blue car and Red Car too. That's 3 more keywords. I hope you got my point.

    Have you added content? It happens when you add content. Or, you have got some juicy links which may be causing your old keywords now to rank.

    Sometimes it just means that semrush crawler got better. You should check your traffic levels and keywords in webmaster tools, as they provide a more accurate data of whether you are moving on the right track or not.
