Therefore, the term has got a huge interest on online marketplaces.

Trend score (-10 to +10)

When calculating the trend score, we attach great importance to the intelligent use and processing of data.

The trend score forecasts the future development of a keyword. “CBD” was rated with a “Trend score” of 7. For this reason, the term is predicted to have a high future relevance and offers decision-making support for the company. Every positive value is expected to show a good development, every negative value should be thought-provoking.

Monthly search volume

The average monthly search volume indicates, how often a term was searched for. We gather the average number of searches on Google and provide them with absolute numbers. The current monthly search volume from the previous month will be displayed as well. This value is not only relevant for our calculations: You can easily see how important and popular a keyword is in your sector.

The distribution of probability in the graphs is based on the calculations we obtain from the collected data. In this respect, the graphical development can be derived from the previous columns on the one hand, and on the other hand the algorithm calculates the probability distribution using many different factors.
