    I've seen that happen before, usually fixes itself. Try making a couple new listings

    You might try revising your listing to auction plus buy it now. After you make a few sales, it may help your listing to be higher in the serps (not sure). But at least your listing will get seen more, especially as the auction gets toward the end from people searching ending soonest.

    I made the mistake of ending my listings and then relisting them because when first listing they showed up at like 3 or 4 on the results page and would slowly drop. After doing this several times they where near the end of the results everytime I listed it. Dumb thing to do (I know) I finally had to drop my price lower than everybody else just to make any sales.

    Eventually my serp placement rose back up and now I am consistently in the 4th or 5th spot. I am not sure if this is due to the sales I made or just the passing of time after my mistake. It took a month to start getting good placement again.

    I do sell in another highly competitive niche with thousands of listings and auction is the only way I get any exposure. I do make sales and if I get more than one bidder I always send a second chance offer to the losing bidders. They buy maybe 20% of the time. Funny thing is that they can get it cheaper at buy it now from my competition. Must be the thrill of the auction... or they are to lazy to search for a better deal.

    I am not sure if this will help you get your listings to rank better but auctions will get seen more. It might not be an option to sell cheaper than everybody else but if you can lower your price you will have better placement for people searching price low to high.

    If you do sell at auction, keep in mind that 30 cent listing fee and calculate it into your starting price. You get charged that whether your item sales or not and ebay sucks because of that.

    Hope this helps you a little and good luck.

    Thank you so much for your reply, I guess I will have to wait a month without any sales then. Ive been revising the item all day long making it perfect but thats not the problem i guess.
    I will make an auction with link to buy it now too.
    Thanks!
