Question: Will I stay at the top of the best match for ever?

We’d all love for the items to stay at the top of the eBay Best Match search results, however the only true factor to ensure that your listing stays at the top of the search results is that the item performs better than the other comparable listings.

This would include the ultimate factor “sales”, but also the ratio of the number of times your items are shown in search results, to the number of click through’s to the number of sales. An item that is clicked less and sold more, will tend to have a higher best match rating.

If we consider the other end of the scale, where an item has a high number of views, but little to no sales, then it could be seen as little value and thus easily drop into pages 2 and deeper.

There is also an inherent limit to eBay, that’s explained in this article:…..ypothesis/
