    Anhblogic,

    SEO for an auction site may not be that much different from just doing SEO for a website in general. You will want to take into consideration where your visitors are likely to be looking for you. For example if your site is targeting visitors nationally or internationally, you may not worry that much about localized SEO.

    The keywords that you target will depend on what it is you are doing with your business. For instance if you auction anything off, perhaps targeting more general keywords would be wiser. If you only auction off horse saddles, then obviously you would target that keyword and related phrases.

    Perhaps you can find some guidance here,

    Good luck!

    I known, however, when we doing it, the targets are too much, based on the item links. But we cannot seo for all of items, right ? Just for homepage, it's okay and there's no problem at all. But the question I want to ask in here that is there any others solution to develops the site growing more ?

    Just like any e-commerce, blog site or large site in general with lots of pages you design the site structure so you have certain landing pages that you optimise. For example, you may have a TV section e.g. auctionsite.com/tv/lot-number-1 rather than auctionsite.com/lot-number-1
