How to Use

Keyword Statistics

Keywords with a high number of clicks or CTRs tell us that buyers are interested in the search results that they are seeing. These keywords may generate more views and sales than other choices.

About the data

Etsy and other marketplaces do not disclose their keyword search and click volumes. We get our data from a leading 3rd party data analytics company that is trusted and used by many Fortune 500 companies. To ensure the highest possibly accuracy, the search volume, click, and click through rates are based on the search behavior of millions of opt-in panelists. While great effort goes into making sure these numbers are as accurate as possible, they should be considered estimates. The numbers reported here may differ from what other companies provide due to different data collection methodologies and data providers.
