eBay Search Position Factors

There are many factors to consider when optimising to rank at the top of eBay search. These include:

1. Listing title
You need to ensure your listing title includes your main keywords or variations. You’d be surprised at just how many listings are added to eBay that don’t include the main product keywords or even name! This has a huge effect so you need to get this right.

2. Descriptions
Likewise, your listing description needs to be optimised. This goes much further than just peppering your keywords throughout the content. You need to craft a description which not only helps ranking but builds customer trust and is captivating enough to generate sales.

3. Sale to click ratio
Your listing must maintain a good sale to click ratio otherwise it will disappear fast. The more sales you get from less clicks, the higher your listing will rank. Getting a high ratio is very difficult, but some common factors you need to cover include having well named products and trustworthy descriptions.

Lots of images, fair shipping and detailed returns policies are also important factors to include for achieving this ratio.


Advanced Ranking Tactics

Above, we have only touched on the very basics of eBay optimisation. There are plenty of advanced tactics that listings will need to apply to achieve the best search positions. Most of these are focused on achieving a good sale to click ratio.
