These departments may change over time as Amazon adjusts product offerings. The outputs from the API are dynamic, meaning whatever Amazon supplies we will include.

Data Outputs

The outputs from the API are aligned by DAY, WEEK, MONTH, and QUARTER. As a result, there are 4 data outputs for each;

  • amz_search_terms_day

  • amz_search_terms_week

  • amz_search_terms_month

  • amz_search_terms_quarter

Since the data is unified in each date output, use the department column to select the appropriate value. For example, if you wanted to look at only, then you would use that in your query to filter the results.
