Is there an API to access the ebay keyword database?
I want to be able to search the "keyword searches". (not the items that match a keyword, but instead the buyer searches that match a given set of keywords). I know that I can search for items that match a keyword that I supply using the Finding API. But is there a way to lookup the keywords that buyers are entering in the ebay search bar? For example, I want to know how many times "2011 macbook pro" was searched for at ebay today, yesterday, this week and this month.
I don't think that's possible anymore. There used to be an API call that did something similar - FindPopularSearches in the Shopping API, but it was deprecated last year, and is no longer listed on the eBay Dev site.
