Analyzing the top 100 listings

The search results analysis section of the keyword tool provides in-depth data drawn from the top 100 listings discovered by ERank during the search on Etsy using your specified keyword. It's important to note that the search results may slightly differ from what you would see on Etsy due to personalized search algorithms. However, this section offers an impartial generalization of what a typical Etsy shopper would see. Use this information to assess the relevance and potential competition for your selected keyword.

Understanding keyword statistics

In the keyword statistics section, ERank provides specific data related to your chosen keyword. This data is populated from both Etsy and ERank's third-party data provider. Here, you'll find widgets displaying average searches, average clicks, average click-through rates (CTR), and Etsy competition. CTR represents the ratio of how often people who view a search result click on it, while Etsy competition indicates the level of competition you can expect for this particular keyword.

Exploring the word cloud feature

The word cloud feature in ERank's keyword tool offers a visual representation of the most frequently used tags for the specified keyword. Each tag's font size corresponds to the frequency of its usage in listings associated with the keyword. By clicking on any word in the word cloud, you can navigate to the keyword tool page for that specific term. Utilize this feature to quickly identify descriptive terms for optimizing your listings.

Filtering and sorting tags

The keyword tool provides a tags table where you can filter and sort tags based on specific criteria. By entering a few letters into the filter keywords text box, you can display only the tags containing those letters. This allows you to focus on the tags that align with your listing's theme or target audience. Sorting the tags table by different columns, such as tag occurrences or Etsy competition, provides further insights into the popularity and competitiveness of specific tags.

Using Google Trends data

To gain additional insights into the popularity of a particular term, you can utilize the Google Trends feature within ERank's keyword tool. This feature allows you to research the search trends for a specific term over a selected period. By clicking the Google Trends button, a new browser tab will open, where you can explore the trends and interest in the term. This information can help you make informed decisions about including certain keywords in your listings.

Exporting and downloading data

ERank's keyword tool offers various export options, allowing you to download the data you've gathered for further analysis or reference. You can choose between printing, exporting to Excel, PDF, CSV formats, or copying the data to your clipboard. These export options help streamline your keyword research process and make it easier to organize and analyze the data offline.

Analyzing price range and top listings

The price range section in the keyword tool provides a bar chart displaying the distribution of prices among the top 100 listings for your selected keyword. This allows you to identify the price range commonly used by successful listings. Furthermore, the top listings section provides insights into the rankings, images, titles, tags, views, hearts, and prices of the top listings associated with your keyword. Analyzing these listings can give you an idea of your competitors and their strategies.

Utilizing synonyms and trademark research

ERank offers a thesaurus feature that displays synonyms for each individual word in your search term. This helps you discover alternative keywords or variations you can use in your listings to attract a wider audience. Additionally, ERank provides a convenient link to the United States Patent and Trademark Office database, allowing you to check whether any terms you plan to use might be trademarked.
