Keyword metric definitions
- Traffic Score (out of 10) determines how often this specific keyword is searched within the app store. A higher traffic score means more people are searching this term, and more people will see the apps ranking for this keyword.
- Difficulty Score (out of 10) determines how hard it is for an app to be ranked first for this keyword. A lower difficulty score means it will be easier to rank in the top search results when this keyword is searched. Apps with a higher number of downloads may find it easier to go after keywords with a higher difficulty score.
