The report displays the most popular keywords that buyers are searching for on Etsy and in many other marketplaces, both e-commerce and brick-and-mortar. Use the panel on the left to find the marketplace you'd like to research.

Come back each day (after 9 AM EST) to see if these keywords are one-offs or part of an ongoing trend. Free members can view the top 10 keywords for each marketplace while paying members can view the top 100 keywords for each marketplace.

If you plan to use any of the terms you see here in your listings, please heed the warning in the orange bar regarding trademarked terms. If you are unsure if a keyword or phrase is trademarked, click the link to the USPTO Trademark Database and search the word or phrase to check.

Choose and filter data

Choose a marketplace from the section on the left.

Use the first dropdown menu to select which country you would like to view data from. Please note that the variety of countries we are able to provide data for differs between marketplaces.

Use the second dropdown menu to set your timeframe to Yesterday, Past 7 Days, or Past 30 Days.

For the 30-day timeframe, this feature also lists the following information for Etsy (however, this information is specific to the US):

  • Most searched colors

  • Top 100 most searched Products

  • Most searched Recipients

  • Top 100 most searched Styles

  • Top 100 most searched Materials

Please note that if you change your timeframe to anything less than 30 days, you will only be able to view the top keywords.

The trend graphs in the "Search Trend" column under the "Keywords" tab (available for select marketplaces) 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.

View which keywords are gaining popularity and which are losing popularity In the "Change" column on the far right. Increases in popularity are denoted in green, while decreases are denoted in red. “Hot” next to a green arrow means that particular keyword is rapidly increasing in popularity.

Under the remaining 5 tabs, use the Relative Popularity column to compare the popularity of the different terms.
