So which retailers are winning the knitwear battle?

We looked at all the search terms relating to christmas jumper with search volumes over 100 – producing a basket of 763 keywords. We then analysed the number of keywords each retailer is visible for and the monthly reach% (propensity to be visible). It’s easy to see that eBay and Amazon have the largest number of ranking keywords (93.45% and 95.67% respectively), but the good news for retailers is that they don’t perform well in the more important metric – Monthly Reach%. The reason for this is that the majority of their keywords rank poorly. In comparison Matalan has only 289 keywords that rank, but their keywords rank higher on average, meaning they are much more likely to be seen and ultimately, clicked on.
