A list of popular search terms has been on my wish list for quite some time. However, I would guess it’s a bit easier said than done when you look at the actual implementation though. I’ve seen some sites where they do publish all the searches and it’s actually a bit of a mess most of the time. For example, people use variants of the same words, misspell, use different languages, type in jibberish, search for things unrelated to the site etc. In the end it’s difficult to actually group and rank the most popular words. You don’t just have “inspiration”, you also have “inspiration music”, “inspirations”, “inspirational”, “inspiring corporate”, “inspirational motivational” etc coming up here and there in a giant list. Making sense of it in terms of usable statistics is a work of its own. Also, I think we already know what the 20 or so top search terms already are, so it would only get interesting from about rank 20 and down (after grouping). Not to mention various data misrepresentation issues, like the fact that many users search for a million things without the intent of actually buying anything, while others just go “corporate ragtime” and boom
Still not saying it can’t be done, but equally useful (and slightly more appealing) would be a staff-made shortlist of 10 or so keywords that seems to be trending or interesting at the moment. In a sense, that’s what’s used to be going on with the “most wanted” competitions, and now with the various blog and email features. Every now and then a small clue about what Envato staff thinks we should be doing instead of rocking the uke. Also, or so I’ve heard, “future bass” is now replacing “dubstep” in the alternative section
Last but not least, trends are trends long before they hit AJ. You can see things come from a million miles away (YouTube, blogs, news, ads) before people actually starts looking to license relatable AJ music. Also, there is the factor of AudioJungle branding in itself. Really, I wonder if not more people, relatively speaking, search for corporate music specifically on AudioJungle than they would on a competing site. It’s just that they came here for a reason and that’s what they will be searching for. On the other hand, sometimes people just google search stuff and boom, an AJ item page comes up.
Bottom line I guess… here’s a workaround:
