How to Use eBay and Amazon to Find Keywords to Write About

By Edited May 2, 2014 2 1

It is clear to many eBay and Amazon sellers that choosing the right keyword for the title and the body of sales content is very important. Writers need to write highly optimized content so that they can make extra sales. Writers spend a lot of their time researching for popular keywords from different resources. A lot of that time can be saved if the writer uses eBay and Amazon to find keywords to write about. The article written for Amazon or eBay using these same resources will definitely convert more sales.

 

Ebay and Amazon are a good place to go to find what is trending.  Yes you can sell items on Ebay and Amazon and make some good money, but it is not passive.  If you are writing online such as at Infobarrel, you can use the same tactics for selling items on Ebay and Amazon and transfer that to writing product reviews.  You need to find out what is trending on Ebay and Amazon and then check the item out. After you use the item or at least interview someone that has that item.  You can write a review of the article, put a product link in your article and collect the money from people wanting to buy that item. 

Making Money By writing Better Item Descriptions
This section is about writing better descriptions on Ebay and Amazon.  This will be for direct sales on those websites. As a writer, the first thing you focus on is the title. It's a title that appears on item listings and therefore the short descriptive text should be informative in order to give shoppers an idea about the product. The eBay and Amazon search engines use product titles to locate listings. As a writer you should ensure that the title is well customized with correct keywords for the purposes of search engine optimization. A point to note about titles is that on eBay, the title can have a maximum of 10-15 words which is around 80 characters. At Amazon the title can be a bit longer (80-100 characters).

How will you write highly optimized content? You might be asking “does writing about the best keyword produces highly optimized content?” The best keywords are the ones that are being highly searched by potential customers on wide world web. How will I know the most popular keywords? Relax eBay and Amazon have both put in place tools that aid the writers in knowing in advance what shoppers have their eyes on.
