What is the data source of AMZDataStudio?

All the keywords, search volume and other data you see on AMZDataStudio come from the real database of Amazon. However, as we all know Amazon doesn’t provide the exact search volume to anyone. So we used our self-developed technique to crawl the site and then used a special formula to calculate the search volume. We have tested many formulas with our own products based on the data we crawled, and found this one is the most accurate so far! We trust the data on our tool because we have tested it in many ways with 10k+ keywords. Feel free to test it out yourself as well!

How is the “Opportunity Score” defined?

The score is made to help you identify low competition keywords fast. The higher the score, the easier it will be for a product to rank organically on the first page of this keyword. It is calculated based on values like The Keyword Product Number, Average Reviews, Rating, and Average Price. So it is only related to the particular keyword, not related to the ASIN you searched.

Is everything within Amazon's TOS?

Yes. We are Amazon sellers ourselves and know that above all else, long term and sustainable businesses are not created by breaking Amazon's terms of service. We aim to provide value as both sellers and software providers and we hope you do too.

How long do I have to wait before getting the results?

You could get the results immediately after you click “Extract”. However, sometimes it may take a few minutes longer due to high demand at that time. Don’t worry, come back in a few minutes and refresh the result will do.

Is the extraction result showing the most updated version of search terms?

Yes, it shows the most updated version of the keywords that ASIN has at its backend search term fields.  Usually it will take Amazon 24 hours to update your backend keywords after you changed it in Sellercentral. And as soon as Amazon updated it, our tool will update it as well. So the keywords you see using our tool is the most up-to-date version.

Why are the keywords in different lines displayed in one line sometimes?

This is because the seller has used commas to separate their backend keywords. When they do this, all the backend keywords will be considered as in one line by Amazon. The different search term fields will be displayed in different boxes if they are separated by space in SellerCentral.

Are the results 100% accurate?

Yes. The results are the 100% exact backend keywords that the seller has set in the backend search terms field of that ASIN. Feel free to test it out with your own ASIN!

How those keywords are selected from millions of search terms on Amazon?

Our system is tracking all buyers’ searching behaviour on Amazon 24/7. As soon as one buyer searched for a keyword on Amazon and ended up clicking on ASIN X, our tool will record this keyword under ASIN X. In this case, when you enter your competitors’ ASIN, all keywords provided by the tool have been actually searched by buyers and have generated real traffic for your competitor’s product. So all those keywords provided by the tool will be valuable for you, as it will not show you the keyword if nobody click through it, even if it is indexed by Amazon. 

Why are there a few keywords not closely related to the ASIN I input?

For example, you are selling “emergency blanket”, but you saw the keyword “first aid kit” in your keyword report provided by the tool. Why is that? Because someone who was searching for “first aid kit” clicked on a first aid product then ended up clicking on your product from that product page. Usually from the “Frequently bought together” or “People who bought this also bought” section. Our tool will not remove this keyword from your report because we think this keyword is related to your product. Even if it is not directly related, it can still bring traffic to your listing. This is actually a great way to find hidden keywords that your competitors are not aware of. It can also help you find new product ideas.

How is it possible that the index checker shows for the ASIN that some of the organic keywords you were showing in the keyword report are not indexed?

The index checker will only show you the current keyword index status. However, the competitor’s keywords finder tool will provide you with all history keywords that have generated traffic to the listing. So it is possible that some keywords were indexed by Amazon before, but not anymore. This can be caused by change of listing content like title, bullets, etc.

Why are there thousands of keywords for some ASINs, while there are only a few keywords for some others?

As we mentioned above, this tool shows you all keywords that have brought traffic to the listing. Usually new products are not ranking well for many keywords, that’s why you can only see a few result in your keyword report. That’s why when you use the tool, we recommend you to choose your top competitors’ ASINs which are selling well and ranking well.

What should I do if the ASIN I researched doesn’t have enough data for me to use?

You can try with another ASIN. From our past experience, research on 5-10 top competitors can give you a perfect picture of this product.

Can I enter my own ASIN into the tool?

Yes, of course. This is actually a great way for you to understand more about your product. It will provide you with a complete picture of the keywords your product is ranking well for, and the keywords that are generating traffic to your listing organically.
