- This value represents the number of keywords up. The timeframe will be displayed below, for example "Lifetime Change". In the screenshot above, this means that there were 0 keywords that move up, since the lifetime or starting of the keywords being tracked.
- This value represents the number of keywords in the top x range. For example, "Top 10" represents the number of keywords in the category ranging from #1-10.
- This value represent the number of keywords previously ranking in the Top X positions. For example, in the screenshot above, in "Top 10", the vs value is 8. This means that there were previously 8 keywords in the top 10. The vs timeframe is indicated in the first metric box, in the screenshot above, you can see it is comparing it as a "Lifetime Change".
- This value represents the difference between the Top X value and the vs value. It is simply calculated by (Top X - vs).
