Basic Care, Amazon’s private-label over-the-counter product, was the top brand in Amazon’s search results for the OTC allergy category from August 1 through August 15, according to data released by Kantar Media on Tuesday.
Kantar Media analyzed four popular allergy-related keywords such as “allergy pills,” “allergy medicine,” “allergy,” and “allergy relief.” The analysis ranks them based on the percentage of time the brand was found in the top three positions on the first search results page, the brand’s average page position and the number of the brand’s listings found.
