Step 2️: Select your Location (Region)

As an example, we will be looking at United States.

A table will show all the trending keywords in the United States from the Last 7 days, along with metrics which are Popularity, Popularity change, and CTR.

Popularity refers to the number of ad creatives that are using this keyword in campaigns. For example, for the keyword "50% off", there are roughly 7,000 ads in the United States that use this keyword in their campaigns.

Step 3: Change the number of days to see data in a longer time frame

You can choose to see the keywords from the Last 7, 30, or 120 Days.

Step 4: Search specific Keywords

You can also type in specific keywords to find more relevant queries in the country and within the length of time you selected.

For example, if you type in the keyword "coffee", the table will show the search queries that contain "coffee". There are 9 trending keywords containing "coffee" in the United States over the last 7 days.

Step 5: Change from Table to Cloud Format

Try changing the view from table format to cloud format. It will show a chart with all the relevant keywords and their metrics, as well as some related videos.

Step 6: Click on Details to get more insights on how these keywords are used in TikTok Ads and explore related TikTok videos

The Details will show you how the keywords were used in different contexts, including the format they're used in (i.e. voice-over, text overlay, ad text), the phrases they're used in, the CTR, and related videos.

In my opinion, it is important to create quality content if you really want to become famous on tiktok. For example, I upload my videos through a computer, after editing the video beforehand. Sometimes I have to use an editor, and sometimes I convert mts file to mp4 to successfully upload it to tiktok.
