Picture of How to Attract more Traffic to eBay Listings
One of the first steps to becoming a successful eBay seller is to attract viewers to your listing. Getting people to look at your item who normally would pass over it greatly increases your odds of a sale. For example, let's say 100 people are searching for a watch on eBay. 50 of them are not looking for something specific, while the other 50 know exactly what they want. Already, that is an excellent business opportunity. Out of every 50 people looking for a specific watch,  maybe 1 one of them will be interested in what you have for sale. However, out of the other 50 people who are looking for a non-specific watch, maybe 25 of them will be interested in what you have.

So, if you can get buyers who are looking for a non-specific watch reading your listing, you automatically increase your potential sale percentage. It basically is the same idea as a garage sale. People don't usually look for something specific at a yard sale, but instead look for something non-specific in the hopes of finding something they want or need. In general, most buyers on eBay aren't looking for something specific. Regardless what they are looking for, get them to look at your listing, and you have the advantage over other sellers. In the next slide, I will show you the easiest way to do just that...

Thanks!

I've managed to increase my own ebay sales by approx 6% by using ebay SEO. I'm seeing others use this (in other niches) and they also seem to be doing ok. You can see it here: http://theauctionbayseller.com/improve-ebay-ranking
