SEO eBay Search Engine Optimization Advice – Listing Every Day Increases Sales



The eBay Search Engine, Cassini, likes active stores. The more active your store is, the higher your listing can place in search. When you are high in search, more buyers will see your item and you will get more sales.

We can’t control when buyers buy, but we can control when we list – and listing is considered an activity. Use the scheduled folder to hold listings so you always have a few at your fingertips to post.

  • Hey Susan I know this is true..I had 100 percent feedback and stopped listing for two weeks because I had overtime at work..they dropped me to 98%! How do I recover ?? Its gonna take a year now

  • Thank you for this! Still learning and I just started watching your videos. They have been very helpful. Especially this one!

  • Does it count as an active store when you relist or sell similar? I only have a basic store so I struggle with the number I can list every month. I don't want to up my store yet because I haven't found that magic item that sells that will for sure cover my store cost. (I have loud kids running around as I listened, so if you mentioned this I apologize for asking something that was covered.)

  • I use the app but I've seen the schedule and wondered about it, so thank you. What I need to learn is markdown manager and category listing which are not yet available on the app. Desktop format looks like the surface of the moon to me, I use it at the library for a few minutes. Have heard listings take less time on desktop.

  • This is such an important piece to the Ebay puzzle, I saw an uptick in sales when I started listing first thing in the morning as apposed to night time. Great info for newbies, thank you for sharing. I'm still unsure about whether it matters how many listings a day or at what times they go live. I would appreciate any info you have on that or if you have a video covering this topic. If not, I would love one!

  • Thank you. i knew about scheduled listing but thought you had to pay. This is so helpful as I travel alot.

  • I am so glad that you mentioned draft's disappearing. I have had this happen and could not figure it out. Thought I was losing my mind. So its not just me! I have started using the schedule feature with great results!

  • This is a great tip! Thanks very much! I knew about the scheduled feature, but didn't know you could manually go in and list before the target date.

    I'm one of those people who typically lists a lot at once and then doesn't list any for a while, so I'm going to put these suggestions into practice and see if things improve!

    Thanks again!

  • Hi, Suzanne. Do you use eBay's Seller Manager Pro to list? If not what do you use instead? Can;t find anyone covering this topic. Thanks

  • I had no idea the schedule features charges you ten cents! I use this all the time and feel so stupid. Thank you for your insights!

  • Great advice! I am a newbie that has been selling for about two months. I do have a full time job and I put a ton of work in on the weekends and weeknights. I think this will be a great strategy for me to try.

  • I didn't know that there was a scheduling feature on eBay. I'm definitely going to try this over the weekend. Thanks for sharing.

  • WOW! Ms Suzanne; I always wandered where my drafts would disappear too. And I also thought no matter what w/ schedule listings that we were charged no matter! Thanks a million! Can't believe I haven't seen this sooner. I need to weed out a lot of who I watch I always get "The Real McCoy Truths from you"! Where do I find it again. I came across by accident one day months ago. I will play 1st then if I can't find I will re-contact you through here. Since I have a playlist of you set up in my utube. "❤️U Will Always Be My Rockstar❤️"! For you give us very valuable and beneficial information and I would like to personally Thank you!

  • I've had this happen a few times to me but never put 2 and 2 together! I would go days without a sale, start listing a handful of items, and literally would have my phone cha-chinging while I was listing! It was never the new items either! I just found you today with this video. Going to go subscribe right now and watch some old videos! Thank you!! 🙂

  • Hi Suzanne thank you for the video. what about beginners that don't have a ebay store but just a personal account . the free one.does that effect how your listings will be seen? Just curious if a beginner should get a store?

  • So happy to watch this video, i was thinking to list all items i can in one time, fortunaly i hadn't did that yet.

    Suzanne what do you suggest me to do, start with a seller account first or a business account, my goal it's to have a business account of course? I was thinking to start with just a seller account to get used to eBay then moving to a Business account.

    I also seen we can have a shop on eBay, what's the difference with the business account? It's a little confusing for me.

    Thanks for all these tips and good continuation for your business…

    PS: How much does it cost now to have you inspect and review our shop?

  • Beautiful. just wanted to point out something which is when an ebay seller gets over 50 free listings then he gets to pay 0.30 dollars per listing and I find that somewhat harsh since what if the item wont sell and doesnt sell.
