I have been looking for a long time for some software that would allow me to manage keywords in an efficient manner. What do I mean by efficient? It’s pretty simple: all I want is the ability to group my keywords into categories or domains. For example: I want
car, boat, ship, carriage, bus and bicycle to all be grouped into a domain called
