The methodology for developing each trending keyword list is to examine keyword registration growth relative to the preceding month and to include keywords with the highest percentage of registration growth month over month. Certain keywords, such as commonly registered keywords like “online” and “shop” are eliminated to provide a true look at monthly trends. Qualifying keywords with the highest volume of registrations are then ranked and included in the trending keywords list.
