The Related Searches section explained


This section show searches we have grouped together by related topics. For example, queries that modify or describe categories using the words aloe vera, witch hazel, or coconut oil will be bucketed into the related topic of "Ingredients". Similarly, searches that include the words top, best, how to would be bucketed under the topic of "Questions."

The Prediction section explained


This section shows historical trends data along with our forecast of trend performance. We adjust search data to make comparisons between terms easier by:

  • scaling on a range of 0 to 100 based on a topic’s proportion to all searches on all topics

  • bucketing our prediction into three categories (very confident, confident, and risky).

This page explains how those classifications are created.

The Category Trends section explained


This section gives a visual representation of all the trends that belong to a given category. You can explore the different trends by using the filters → {cluster, prediction, growth, volume} in order to find new and relevant trends.
