Keywords Stats

GET 5 Credits / Keyword /android/keywords/stats.json

Keywords Stats allow you to fetch information about the popularity and competition of a given keyword. This is useful to estimate if it would be interesting to put an emphasis on a given word in the app title, description or to target it in the keywords field.

Object properties
competition: float [0..100]

volume: float [0..100]

A score between 0 and 100 indicating how popular the keyword is. Popular keywords are more likely to be searched on the Google Play Store and tend to generate more downloads. It is therefore more interesting to be well ranked keywords with a high volume.

kei: float [0..100]

KEI stand for Keyword Efficiency Index. It's a score between 0 and 100 taking into account both the volume and competition. It's a measure of the risk/reward associated to each keyword. A high KEI indicates that the keyword is a good candidate for Google Play Store Optimization (high volume and low competition).
