What are Online Shoppers Searching for in 2018?
Incredibly, the first 1/4 of 2018 is nearly in the books!
As you know, we have thousands of users on our CatalogRack, eStore and Enterprise eB2B solutions, and every day we compile the number of searches gathered from those sites. These search, or demand reports, are available to our manufacturer customers to review activity on their own products. We believe it is an interesting way to look at the activity as a whole for our Performance & Accessories segment of the industry.
So, what have online shoppers been searching so far this year?

Search volumes appear as noted below when breaking the US into main regions and splitting the larger southern states into two regions, South Eastern and South Central:
