He explains how te trends change according to seasons.

We are seeing a different dynamic in the searches. What we saw around September was a depressing trend where there was less volume, less interest and decrease in searches.

Tucker says they have recorded a 200% increase in volumes from yesterday.

What we see around this time of the year is a lot of toys and gifts, hoverboards and some back-to-school products and we see a lot of volume for TV and air conditioners this week leading to Black Friday.
