    • These metrics can be printed or downloaded as a .PDF using the buttons on the right.

    • The Searches column provides the number of times the exact same keyword/term was searched.
    • Searches that do not match a search term entered in Yabsta as a Tag will display the word Yes in the No Results column. This shows that the search did not have relevant Tag in Yabsta. Together with the Search Term column, these give an idea of which Tags should be added to Yabsta.
