    It seems very difficult to get my items anywhere near the first page.

    [email protected] asking this,i didn't think you used Ebay because you complain about it so much on Ebay threads.

    What are your DSR's like,they have to be high.

    I thought they were advertised in order of time left?

    Or if you chose the optional and charged option of premium add which advertises it at the top of the search results.

    Have you had any policy breaches because they lower it.

    You also get higher in the search on best match if you have free P+P

    I've sent you an Ebay link.

    Yeah i hate Ebay, but unfortunately, i have no other option.
    I have 100% feedback, and DSR's of 4.9, 4.9, 4.8, 4.8
    No policy breaches and the P+P charge is the same as other peoples.

    I have heard that a main contributor is the sold ratio or something?

    yeah if you have a quantity and sell a few each sold boosts you up a bit. Free post and packaging is another good boost and if it ends soon it becomes more visible. Also use a number of keywords and make the listing appealing. If you get a high number of views but no sales it acts in the opposite way to the sale ratio you mentioned and decreases your match, so if you're getting views but no sales then you will be booted nearer to the bottom of the list.

    Listing is done by time of auction ending.

    If you're a private seller,there's only so many improvements you can make,high volume business sellers have the edge.

    Only if you change the way you search for items, i'm talking about the standard search which does not ist by ending times.

    Yeah the account i use is a business one, it had Top Rated status a few months ago which it hasn't now due to it's strict limits.
    Tried all the keywords and stuff. It's annoying a lot of the time where you see one guy who just writes "I'm selling an x product" and gets to the top instantly.

    What does your dashboard say?

    didnt misunderstand the question at all. Search results for each user will be different. You cant get your own items nearer the top across the board. LOLZ at you back

    You still don't understand Csiman.
    It doesn't matter what you search for or how you search for it. The standings always play it's part.
    You can't be top of 10,000 listings for one user, and then bottom of 10,000 listings for the same search with another user.

    nah you need to press return....if you press return in the first edit box it deletes them. But it's not deleting the returns in the second edit box
