    I recently posted Iphone 5 headphones that are selling upwards to 100 times a day on buy it now on another account. This listing is third when you search for the item correctly.

    I posted mine for cheaper, with more item specifics. A very long description, longer than his. Returns, and free shipping.

    I can't even find my item when I search for it.

    I have had 0 views other than my 5 views and have had it on eBay for a few days now. In a couple more transactions I will call up Ebay to get power seller status but I can't yet.

    Does anyone have an idea on how I can improve my listing's search status when searched with best match (how most people search)?

    Am I correct in saying that you dont have the power seller status on that account?

    If so that makes a difference, especially being a top rated seller, you are then normally ranked higher under the best match tab. Feedback also counts towards your listing position

    I have never had an issue getting views to any of my listings. People only hit the buy if they really want the item (depending on the price, my reputation aka feedback rates. etc). Keep your description nice and short to the point, don't drag it much because you're selling headphones after-all. In terms of getting listed higher - try terms like free shipping, brand new, in stock within your iPhone 5 headphone title. Also, before i became a power-seller i still got plenty of views to my listings and ranked well on the searches. Power-seller status does help to get ranked, but i honestly don't buy on that much!

    Hello,
    Here are some tips to make your listing stand out from other eBay sellers:
    1. Use a correct username
    2. Maintain consistency in your listing titles
    3. Consider using ALL CAPS in your titles
    4. Use subtitles
    5. Try to become a top rated seller
    6. Write an about me page
    7. Use appealing pictures
