Switching my Nintendo DS games eBay auctions to “free shipping” dramatically improved my position in search results and the number of people seeing my items.
When I checked my statistics yesterday I had about 95 “impressions,” which show how many eBay shoppers had seen the headline of my auctions. That was after the items had been listed for three days.
This morning—not even a full day after I switched my auctions to feature free shipping—the number of impressions for my Professor Layton and the Curious Village game had jumped to 267 and finally I had a bidder.
I also gained some “watchers” so I’m feeling a lot better about these eBay auctions today.
