SEO Overview

Get actionable insights to improve your ranking on Amazon

This tab provides you with actions to improve the quality of your product page.

Title

Title shorter than 150 characters

A title longer than 150 character worsen readability, and it’s unlikely to be fully read.

Keyword stuffing

Repeating the same words several times in the title is redundant and unnecessarily increase the length. It is considered a black-hat technique and you may be penalized. If you want to give more importance to a keyword then include it in the first part of the title.

In this example, the word “coffee” is repeated 5 times and title is difficult to read by a human.

Variation name in title

Add variation name (color, size, style etc.) at the end and wrapped by round brackets. This improve user experience and discoverability in search results. It will be more likely Amazon will pick up the right variation to match the user search term.

Brand name

Including the brand at the beginning improves discoverability for branded searches.

Title Case Capitalization

The title case is a style in which all words are capitalized except minor words (like “The Quick Brown Fox Jumps over the Lazy Dog”).

Images & Videos

Zoomable image

Use professional photographs with a white background and a size larger than 1000px.

Product Video

A video could shows how to use the product, real use-case scenarios or shots from different angles.

Bullet points

Bullet points help you to sell the features and benefits of your product. So they impact the conversion rate.

A common mistake is making bullet points so long that the customer doesn’t waste time reading them. You could use this space to highlight features that the customer is looking for.

Be clear and concise. Keep the sum of all bullet points under 1,000 characters in total and each one less then 200 characters.

Here how to organize your bullet points:

# Bullet 1: Unique selling point / Primary benefit

# Bullet 2: Primary features

# Bullet 3: Secondary features

# Bullet 4: Compatibility, Integrations, Use Cases etc.

# Bullet 5: Brand/Manufacturing info (optional)

Reviews

Stars / Review

At least 15 reviews and 3.5+ stars is the threshold for “Amazon readiness”. Use official Amazon programs like Vine to increase reviews.

Negative reviews

A negative review on the front page worsens product conversion and could drive traffic off the page. Dive deep into reasons and consider if it’s caused by misleading expectation in the detail page or is a structural product’s issue.

Brand Content

A+ page

Use A+ pages to narrate and persuade the user to purchase by telling the story of the product, photographs, and additional information that didn’t find its way into bullet points.

Brand title

Having the link to your store page under the product title makes it easy to discover other products from your brand.

Buybox

Buybox

At least one seller (or Amazon) must have won the buybox. Your advertising campaign will stop running if the advertiser is not winning the buybox.

Promise Delivery Date (PDD)

This is the date by which Amazon guarantees delivery to the customer.If it’s yellow or red, the user might reconsider the purchase, walk away from the page, and prefer a competitor with faster delivery.

Indexation

An ASIN is indexed if a customer is able to find it from search results. You can verify this by simulates a search by entering the ASIN code in the search bar. If you find no results, it means the ASIN is not indexed. It could be for several reasons:

  • ASIN has been suppressed by Amazon. Check in Amazon Seller Central and defect report. Contact Amazon support if you cannot find the root cause.
  • If you are a vendor, your ASIN could be “CRAPPed” (Can’t Realize A Profit). It means Amazon has negative profits selling it. You could negotiate a lower cost for Amazon, or an higher selling price. Amazon often match selling price from other websites, so be sure other resellers are selling your product at higher selling price. Contact your Vendor manager to learn more.
  • If you are in an oversea marketplace where shipping is not available, you might not see your ASIN. Try to enter a local zip code as a customer shipping address.

A product is retail ready if it satisfies these conditions. If not, your advertising campaigns might get low impressions or underperforms.
