What are Long Tail Keywords?
The best way for raising yout net profit % and bring quality traffic to your eBay listings is no other than to understand how a search engine works. Especially how eBay’s search engine works!! And believe me it’s soooo easy to understand that eBay loves, not only the lowest prices, but also the good and unique titles!! And here is the explanation of how you can raise your profits, how you can sell an item which the same time is available for selling on the same platform (eBay), by so many eBay sellers, even at a much lower price. The answer to this is one and it’s called Long tail keywords!
Long tail keywords are a type of keyword phrase that has at least three, and some times as many as five words in the phrase. Long tail keywords are used when you want to refine search terms on eBay, as well as when the buyer-searcher is looking for something rather specific. Like normal keywords, long tail keywords are used to define what is on eBay and what the seller wants to be found under in search engines and on search engine results pages. These keywords are highly specific, and draw less traffic for your eBay listings, but tend to draw more quality traffic, which leads in more conversions than normal keywords. Long tail keywords can also be used in different ways.
When you are using long tail keywords, you are searching to corner a market that might be smaller than normal, but has just as much potential as other, larger, more exposed markets. Don’t forget that buyers also use long tail keywords to narrow down what they are searching for. When a buyer is looking for “wooden dining table set” it makes more sense to put in the entire phrase than to put in “wooden table,” “dining table,” or “wooden set” and attempt to filter out any of the search results that have nothing to do with blue wooden dining table set.
Working with long tail keywords successfully means that we need to know which long tail keywords actually get hits or are searched for on the major search engines. Research is the only way to know if long tail keywords will work or not!!
