Category Trends → Feature Overview

The Category Trends feature lets you track the top 100 products for any category or subcategory available on the Amazon Bestsellers page:


You can use this information to:

  • Choose the category better suited for launching new products
  • Get a high-level summary of the performance of a category to analyze a specific market (sub-category)
  • See historical rank at a glance
  • Find popular products that sell well, or look for bundling options or related products

3-Day View

The default view shows you a comparison of the product's performance for the previous 3 days. You can change the dates by clicking the arrows next to the first and last day or by using the date picker to select a different starting date:



You can choose a category/sub-category from the list to see the top 100 products for the previous 3 days:

Hover over the graph to see the product's BSR for any particular day (the graph will display the daily rank information going back up to 90 days):


Additional Actions

The graph view has a few additional options:


  • View on Amazon: Click the Amazon logo icon to view the product directly on Amazon
  • Add to Product Tracker: Click the + icon to add the product to your Tracker
  • Look up Keywords: Click the key icon to do a Reverse ASIN search in Keyword Scout (this will let you see the actual pay-per-click keywords for that product).


  • Supported Marketplaces → Currently, Category Trends is only available for the US Marketplace. 
  • Missing Historical Rank → At times, it might not be possible to display a product's Historical Rank information:

This can happen when a product is fairly new and there isn't enough historical data, or when a product is currently unavailable or had been out of stock for a considerable time frame.

  • Missing Product Information → There are a few reasons for missing product information:

  1. Amazon may have deleted or edited the category
  2. An outage during the information refresh (data gets updated once a day)
  3. The ASIN is ranked in a very low position (high numbers like 275,000) in a sub-category
