What do the Database's filters mean?
Knowing what the Database's filters mean definitely helps you use them to your advantage, enabling you to drill down your search results. So let's get to it! :)
So your first filter option is the 'Country' option.
By clicking on one of the circular flags, for either the US, Canada, Germany, France or the UK, you will bring up search results that are specific to that market.
The next option is 'Categories'.
By clicking on the grey button on the slider to the left of each parent category, it will turn the slider orange and the Database will search for products in that Category.
And you're not limited to choosing just one...the Database allows you to search for products in as many as all of the parent categories Jungle Scout supports, or as few as just one. It's completely up to you!
After you've chosen which categories you want to search, you're left with these filters to choose from (you can also click on the orange circle with the 'i' inside, to see what each filter means:
- Price - Decide the minimum and maximum list prices of items you want to see in your search results.
- Net - This filter allows you to enter the minimum and maximum prices of products, after the FBA fees have been deducted. The FBA fees for each product will be noted in the NET column of the Database results, below the NET price:
- Rank - Choose the minimum and maximum Best Seller Rank (BSR) of the products in your search results.
- Est. Sales - Choose the minimum and maximum monthly estimated units sold (based on rank) for the results of your search. If you want to know more about how we estimate sales, check out our 'science behind the estimates' blog.
- Est. Revenue - This filter allows you to enter the minimum and maximum revenue for a product, after the FBA fees have been deducted.
- Number of Reviews - The minimum and maximum number of reviews on the products' listings. To learn more about how to engage your future customers, you might want to read how to 'make your customers swoon' with these three email templates.
- Rating - Want to limit the results in your search to three stars or less? This filter will do that for you. Just enter the minimum and maximum number of stars you want your resultant products to have in the Rating filter.
- Weight - How much do your want your prospective product to weigh? Enter the minimum and maximum weight, in pounds, into this filter.
- No. Sellers - This filter lets you dictate how many sellers you want on a product's listing. Again, this is a minimum/maximum filter.
- Listing Quality - We’ve developed an in-house algorithm to determine the quality of a listing, and this filter can help you find products that have listings that can be optimized. In general, listings that score under 20 or 30 will be of very poor quality, while a listing with a score over 70 or 80 have very good listings. Enter the minimum and maximum Listing Quality Score (LQS) you want for your results into this filter. The LQS blog is full of great information on how to use this data effectively, in case you want to give it a read.
Next, on the right-hand side of the Database's filters, you'll find the Product Tier and Sellers options. You'll also find the 'Search Keywords', 'Exclude Keywords', and the number of search results shown on each page:
For the Product Tier option, you can choose either standard-sized items, over-sized items or both, for the Database to find. Like the Categories filter section, you choose your product tier by clicking on the grey button on the slider to the left of your tier of choice so it turns the slider orange.
The same is true for the Seller filter as well. Click on the slider button to tell the Database which type of sellers you want to see selling the prospective products:
Next, if you have specific keywords you do or do not want to see in your search results, enter them into the search and exclude keyword fields, separated either by a space or a comma. Then, decide how many products you want to see on each results page by clicking on the down arrow to the right of the number field, beside the 'Results per page' title, and then choosing the number of results you want to see in the drop down tab that appears.
Finally, click the orange 'Search' button to get your results:
** Please note: You will have to extract your data one page at a time, if the Database returns more than 200 products. And the Database is currently (as of 10/27/16) limited to displaying 5000 products, even if it was able to generate more than 5000 results with the filters you used.
