Keyword Research Questions

Amazon, Youtube and Ebay (and the other companies) do not release their search volume. We therefore show the search volume, CPC and competition metrics from the Google Adwords API for all the searches at Keyword Keg. Since the search volume for a keyword at Google and at Amazon/Youtube etc will be proportional, one can easily compare keywords based on the Google search volume.

  • Search Volume: This is the average number of times that people have searched for a specific keyword and its close variants every month. This is an average of the total searches for this keyword over the last 12 months.
  • CPC: The cost per click (CPC) is the amount that advertisers are paying for a single click for this keyword in Google adwords. Please note that this just an estimate from Google Adwords and your actual CPC may vary. In GKP this is now called "Suggested Bid"
  • Competition: The competition is a gauge of the number of advertisers that are running ads on Google adwords for this specific keyword. The number goes from 0 to 1, with lower values signifying less number of advertisers and higher values signifying more advertisers.
We have a bunch of other Proprietary Metrics as well.

We currently only support the English language and the following countries - Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom & United States. We will be adding support for other countries & languages in the future.

Here is an article that explains in depth how the various metrics are calculated at Keyword Keg

Some keywords don't have the data because we are still crunching data for those keywords. We have gotten the data for most of the higher volume keywords, but the very lower volume ones will take some time to get done.

We don't have an API for accessing our data. The only way to do so is using our web based tool.
