My girlfriend asked me how to rank well for products listed on eBay (e.g. someone goes to and enters "TV", how does one rank in the top 10).
Does anyone know some tricks?

I don't know about special search results pages like the one you receive for "TV" – were you referring to these pages or was that just some random example? These special searches seem to include gallery items only. Sellers with a lot of positive feedback are probably preferred.

As for "normal" results, I don't think there are any tricks. The most important thing is to get ranked at all, that is to include all the keywords in the title that people might think of when searching for your product. Apart from that, the results are solely sorted by time left until the end of the auction.

Andreas, "TV" was just an example. In the phrase my girlfriend is targetting for her page does contain the keyword, but is listed say on rank 40 or so.
