How to identify seasonal keyword search trends

Here are five ways to ensure your SEO strategy stays ahead of popular searches:

  • Categorize your search terms to align them with the categories and subcategories on your site.
  • Monitor cooperative search volume data over time (we recommend 3 years of data).
  • Identify and record highs and lows.
  • Schedule your content to release well before the peak.
  • Share this data with other teams within the company – e.g. B. Product and Merchandising.

2. Find and benefit from low-hanging fruit

To prioritize low-hanging fruit, focus on high-ROI, low-effort opportunities:

  • View the collective ranking of terms within a category.
  • Identify where you are generating revenue, opportunities and benchmarks for your industry/competitors.
  • Find content that ranks on pages 2 and 3 and explore how you could optimize that content to get into the conversion zones.
  • Let the company know how much the changes are worth in terms of revenue.

3. Maximize opportunities from across the SERP

Before you start wondering how you got on the first page or why your ranking dropped, examine the SERPs and see if you belong there.

The problem could be a mismatch between the existing landscape and your specific offering. Try to refine your search and explore other possibilities.

The SERP presents both answers and opportunities.

  • Look at your performance for terms.
  • Compare your performance to competitors in refined portal SERPs.
  • Look for opportunities behind SERP Zero.
  • Optimize your images.
  • Own the answer box and complete it with a classic link.

4. Optimize your content for information searches

With the advent of AI, conversational search is increasing, leading us to information search.

The search landscape is constantly evolving. By observing these changes, you can spot shifts in intent, identify new priorities, and spot declining trends.

Optimizing your content is crucial to owning the response card and sending out quality signals.

Research shows that directing users to informational content, especially when their questions are answered through features like People Also Ask, leads to higher conversion rates, higher average order value, and more repeat visits.

This approach supports your commercial goals by helping users find answers and build trust.

5. Find and increase your share of the value

An effective way to communicate the impact of your SEO efforts is with the Share of Value metric.

To determine share of value, use tools to analyze the visibility of different websites across thousands of relevant keywords.

Then overlay these viewability scores with commercial value derived from metrics like conversion rates, average order value, and CPC rates.

Evaluate your commercial visibility in the search landscape not just as a whole, but by category and subcategory. This analysis allows you to identify areas where you are performing above or below average compared to your competitors.
