Retail

The Keynote Retail Performance Indices are measured from the ten largest U.S. metropolitan areas (Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.) on high-speed links attached to key points on the largest U.S. Internet Service Provider (ISP) backbones.

We offer two types of indices for your industry: The Retail Home Page Performance Index and three Retail Transaction Performance Indices for Apparel, Books & Music and Electronics.

Which one is right for you?

Retail Home Page Performance Index

Retail Transaction Performance Indices

The Keynote Retail Home Page Performance Index measures and benchmarks the performance of the home page of the Top 30 companies in the retail industry.

The Keynote Retail Transaction Performance Indices measure and benchmark the performance for a standard online shopping transaction for the Top 10 companies in each retail vertical. The transaction involves going to a selected retail site to search for an item, adding it to the shopping cart, and proceeding to check out without logging on to an account.
