      There are five major areas in the eBay search system:

      1. keywords
      2. categories and product specification
      3. information on product
      4. sorting
      5. and best match

      All these four aspects are very important for your success in eBay.

      Sure, let me see if I can explain it a little better or more in detail.

      Buyers normally search a product by means of keywords and therefore, as a seller you have to maximize your effort in adding a relevant title to your listing.

      You should add relevant and popular keywords in the title that best suits your product.
      Most importantly, never add any special characters in your title as buyers never use those characters in the search and this also minimizes your chance of getting listed in the search result.

      Also, remember that eBay search system is literal. For example, if you have listed your title as sz and if buyer searches size, then your listing will not be added in the search result.

      Always, research more on the keywords before adding it and also as a seller you have to do some market research to list your products.

      Recently, eBay has simplified its category structure. That is when the buyer clicks the main category, they will be taken to a sub-categories hub, and then directly to the results.

      Many people want to narrow down their result, so they use this sub-category to reach their result.

      Therefore, as a seller, you should make sure that your products get listed in the narrowed search result. For this you have to fill in all the specification while listing your product.

      Sure, product information is nothing but complete information about your product. While listing your product, you should completely fill in all the necessary information about your item. eBay has itself determined from its research that products with more information brings in more success.

      There are different types of product sorting that is done on the search results and buyers may choose any of these methods. This sorting has a great impact on where your listings will be placed in the search result.

      Here are the sorting types:

      • Time: ending soonest
      • Time: newly listed
      • Price + shipping: lowest first
      • Price + shipping: highest first
      • Price: highest first
      • Distance: nearest first
      • Best Match

      Best match is the default sorting method and it helps a buyer to find exactly what they are looking for.

      Your products is listed in the best match result based on number of factors such as your selling track record, competitive prices, and relevance of listing your products.
