    Hello everyone,

    I started to sell on ebay 2 months ago. At first it was ok but my ebay sales are very very slow these days. And yesterday, I searched for my listings. I either couldn't find them or they were on the last page of the list.
    Some of them are 3 to 5 day listings. I have good titles, lower price than other sellers. I don't know whats wrong.. Can anyone explain?? Is there anything I can do??

    Do you have anything negative affecting your account, like open cases, negative feedback, a high defect rate etc?

    eBay has its own algorithm to rank listings and its possible to game it. See how some people are ranking for forbiden keywords like ''viagra'' etc. (hidden keywords)

    For obvious reason I wont go in to details but you should consider playing.. with factors like: sales per time window, amount of watchers, bids, keyword stuffing/hiding etc. and etc.

    There's no shortcuts if you don't want to do anything that might get you banned. It's all combination of keyword, views, sell through rate, and the strength of your account. If it's worth it for you, you might want to invest in terrapeak and research what the competition is doing different than you.
