Mastering Market Search Term Trends on Amazon

"While ACOS and ROAS metrics and targets are important, iDerive focuses on deeper drivers of long-term growth on Amazon for organic rank." Harriet Carson – VP of Media, iDerive

Groundbreaking Tool for Understanding Amazon Market Dynamics

iDerive’s Market Search Term Trends dashboard is at the forefront of modern Amazon strategy, offering advanced and intuitive insights into top Amazon search terms and competitor market share. Here’s a closer look at what it can achieve for your growth.

Going Beyond Superficial Targets

Most agencies today focus on and target ACOS or ROAS goals. While these metrics are undeniably useful, they often overshadow equally crucial elements that determine long-term growth, such as the organic rank. Simply put, organic rank is the position where your product or brand appears when a relevant keyword is searched. The higher the organic rank, the more visible your product is. 

Improving Organic Rank
So, as brands invest more in keywords, do they become more findable organically? Do they migrate from the shadows of page

8 to the limelight of page 1? The Market Search Term Trends dashboard seeks to answer these pressing questions. 

Amazon Brand Analytics - Top Search Terms


What you can Measure in Amazon Brand Analytics – Top Search Terms

Amazon’s Brand Analytics offers a Top Search Terms Report. This report ranks search terms based on their popularity on a daily, weekly, monthly, and even quarterly basis. 
Looking at Week 24, “fathers day gifts” is a top search term, as purchases are being made ahead of the June 16th holiday. Furthermore, users can check on the top selling ASINs for that or any given search term. In this case, the “Hey Dude Men’s Wally Sox” was a top selling ASIN. Navigate to another non-Holiday week, and you will see evergreen search terms like “airpods” or “batteries”. 


How to View Trends Over Time

Brands face a daunting task of manually downloading and processing Amazon data every week to monitor trending data around search frequency rank, which gives true insights into changes in search terms and their corresponding top selling products. This manual labor could take days, resulting in outdated strategies and missed opportunities. 


The Solution: iDerive’s Market Search Term Trends


Addressing this challenge head-on, Market Search Term Trends offers the same report but allows users to view all weeks over the course of a year, and the top 1.5 million search terms, making a process that would take days lighting quick.
