What is Amazon SEO?

Similar to any other Search engine optimization process such as Google SEO Services and Walmart SEO, Amazon SEO is a process of optimizing your product listings to reach the top of the Amazon search results (for all relevant keywords).

Just like on Google, buyers on Amazon enter a keyword (product name) to find the product and just like on Google, users mainly click on the first few results and very rarely reach the second, third or any further page.

The Ranking of products on Amazon is determined by an algorithm called “A9”.  On Amazon, the algorithm “A9” basically decides the fate of your success, so it’s a good idea to understand it a little better. It works in this way:

With millions of searches, Amazon ranks all products by purchase likelihood. It actually scans products of a category and then it enlists products which have better details, sales, description, reviews, and rating.

It also sometimes tries to differentiate the price. And that’s how it decides the position of a product for a search query.

Thi all above happens within a few milliseconds in the same the A9 decides which one of the hundreds of millions of products it will show on ranking position number 1, number 2, etc.

Now here are some factors that Amazon takes into account to decide the ranking of a product along with tips to perform Amazon SEO for product listing.
