Use the line graph to view the number of monthly searches for each keyword over the past 12 months. Viewing the data in this particular format makes it easy to determine if a keyword is seasonal or trending.
Uncheck any of the boxes next to the keywords above the graph to hide that data.
Use the table below the graph to view the following information:
Keywords: the keywords being analyzed
Average Searches (US)*: the average monthly searches for each keyword on Etsy by people living in the US, based on the past 12 months of Etsy data
Average Clicks (US)*: the average monthly clicks that listings in searches for each keyword get on Etsy, based on the past 12 months of Etsy data
Average CTR (US)*: the ratio of clicks to searches for each keyword on Etsy (shown as a percentage), based on the past 12 months of Etsy data
Etsy Competition (US)*: how much competition you can expect with each keyword on Etsy search results pages
Search Trend: these graphs display each keyword’s changes in popularity over the past 15 months. From this data, you can get a sense of a keyword’s seasonality and whether it is becoming more or less popular
Google Searches: the estimated number of searches performed on Google each month for each keyword. Google search data is also useful for your website and helps you understand broader user-interest levels, keywords, and products
Google Competition: indicates the level of advertisers that are competing on Google for each keyword. The competition score ranges from 0 to 1, with 0 being no competition and 1 being high. High competition is a good indicator of purchase intent
Google CPC: CPC (cost-per-click) indicates how much advertisers are prepared to pay to appear at the top of search results for each keyword. If advertisers are prepared to pay a high CPC, that indicates the keyword has good purchase intent
Long Tail Keywords: indicates whether or not each keyword is more specific than more commonly searched for keywords. Long tail keywords get less search traffic, but will usually have a higher conversion value
