#PS100 – The top 100 Products that consumers searched for in July

Welcome to the #PS100 where we go into the detail of the most popular products consumers searched for in July.

Pricesearcher works with many integration and feed management companies and we are delighted to be adding to the list by officially launching our partnership with Feed Optimise this month. Their existing customers can now easily index their products into our product search engine by contacting their account manager who will provide us with an optimised feed.

Highlights from our July data

  • Garden increased 3% compared to June and was the largest category in our list with lawnmowers and gazebos as some of the most popular products
  • The summer fashion discount season seems to have made an impact on the searches in Footwear and Apparel; this category was up 16% compared to June with different styles of dresses and skirts being the most popular keywords
  • White goods and kitchen appliances continue to feature as staple high ranking search terms in our top list throughout the summer months
  • Electronics keywords were down by 19% this month in our biggest swing. TVs and mobile phone handsets remained the top keywords for this category helped by our new Mobile Plans page where you can filter over 2m options in the UK mobile market to find your ideal package
  • New searches entering the top 100 have meant we’ve had to add three new categories: Cosmetics, Experience and Food & Drink

Going into more detail at the category level we examine the actual search terms and discuss insights that can be drawn from the data:

Garden – 33% of the top 100 search volume

Garden product searches have grown like weeds during the summer period with people looking for lawnmowers, trimmers and other garden tools, typically petrol powered. Sun lounger entered the list this month prompted by the summer staycation and gazebo’s remained popular during bbq/summer party season.
