How is Share of Search calculated?
Search data is accessed via Google’s keyword data API and is gathered across a period of 12 months.
Once that data has been aggregated against either monthly search data for competitor brands in the category or against the generic category terms, your Share of Search metric is calculated (a rolling 12-month average) using the following formula:
Searches for brand X / Searches for all brands being analysed
Why share of search?
Share of Search is a powerful metric a company of any size can use as an accurate proxy for the crucially important, but often expensive, calculation of a brand’s market share.
Search data accurately shows consumer intent without the filter of a traditional brand survey, revealing how people are really behaving towards brands.
