Updating Ebay Search Engine Keywords

Posted on

There has been a lot of talk recently in Facebook groups about updating the search engine keywords in your eBay store because of a system glitch. I was familiar with this feature and had set my keywords a while ago but hadn’t checked in a while.

So when I checked my account this is what I saw.

At first things looked good but as I keep scrolling, this is what I saw.

After seeing that the keywords defaulted to the original ones, I see that I need to get to work. I went through all the affected categories and made changes. I wasn’t sure if the changes would make a difference or when/if this would affect my sales.

Well about 6 hours later a got my first sales in days. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence, but I’ll take it.

Have you updated your keywords and have you noticed an increase in sales?

Edit: If you add a new category to your store, the system will default to the original keywords as well.
