UNDERSTANDING THE EBAY SEARCH ENGINE TO IMPROVE YOUR AUCTIONS VISIBILITY

Posted by ebayprofitmaster on May 15, 2010

Once you get do know how eBay works you will find the things that you are looking for much easier – and the more you know about how to find something the easier it will be for your listings to be found by many more potential customers. It is very important for you to improve your auctions visibility by understanding the eBay search engine. Below are some good searching rules (which you should try when you are buying, and remember when you are selling if you want to know how to make money quick online).

1. Be specific.
If you want to find a first edition of the first Harry Potter book, you will get more accurate results returned by searching for “Harry potter and the philosopher’s stone first edition” than you will do if you just search for “Harry potter”. There will be fewer results returned, but the ones that are will be much more accurate.

2. Spell incorrectly.
Many times a seller will be typing in titles in a rush and make a mistake, or simply not take the time to check on the correct spelling of an item’s name. Whatever you are looking for, you should try thinking of some common misspellings and you may well find a few items listed that others have missed.

3. Use a thesaurus.
You should try searching for all the possible words that someone could use in their description of an item, for example you should search for both “TV” and “television”. It is actually probably best to not enter the type of item and just search for things like the brand and the model.

4. Use the categories.
Whenever you search for something, you will see that there are categories listed at the side of your search results. If for example you searched for the name of a particular CD, you should visit the “CDs” category to look only at the results in that particular category only. This lets you narrow down the results you are seeing to only those that are relevant to what you may be looking for.

Next time we will take a look at some specific terms you can enter in your searches as a further test of the way that the eBay search engine works.
