Keyword Explorer is easy-to-use while searching in all of our keyword research tools: Classic Search, ASIN Plus, Emerging Trends, Page 1 Products, and Digital Shelf.
How does it work?
After you perform a search on MerchantWords, look for the “ACTIONS” button on any search table.
Then click on “Analyze This Page” from the dropdown menu to launch the Keyword Explorer editing tool.
Once you click the button, Keyword Explorer scans the search results for any page. It analyzes the keywords and shows you the seed terms, top modifying terms, and longtail phrases ranked by count and strength.
When you first open the tool you will be in the Home view. In the example below, the user has searched for “sunglasses”. In this view, you can see up to 100 Amazon keywords that contain “sunglasses” as well as the search volume for each.
To drill further into your search results, click on the 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x buttons.
1x displays all the one-word seed terms and modifiers
2x displays all adjacent two-word terms
3x displays all adjacent three-word terms
4x displays all adjacent four-word terms
5x displays all adjacent five-word terms
For each keyword, you can see the number of times it appears, as well as the strength of each word or phrase.
What is strength? Strength is calculated by multiplying the search volume for each word by the total number of appearances in the results. This metric tells you the overall impact of this word or phrase in the context of all 100 Amazon search terms being analyzed.
If you are looking for a particular term or phrase, type that word into the search bar within Keyword Explorer to see all the keywords that match your query.
Pro-Tip: Click on any term that interests you to see the Amazon search terms that contain that phrase and the corresponding search volume.
Clear your search to return to the previous page.
To save a keyword, select and check the box on the left of each term. See all the keywords you selected by clicking on the purple checkbox next to the search bar.
Want to remove brand names or irrelevant words or phrases? Just click on the exclude button - the purple circle with a minus symbol - to remove terms from your results.
SAVE, DOWNLOAD, OR COPY
When it’s time to wrap up your research you have three options:
SAVE keywords to a Collection to view search volume and track how the search volume changes from month-to-month
DOWNLOAD the keywords as a CSV for spreadsheet analysis
COPY the keywords to paste directly into Amazon
