+Search, +Shop, +Sell
We all know that any online shopping site is only as good as their search. A hard-to-find search bar, non-existent customizable options and poor results is a surefire recipe for the back button click. Chances are that if it’s harder to find what your looking for than your actual desire to purchase it, you’ll leave empty handed. Which is bad news for both buyers and sellers.
At Krrb, we understand how important these features are. Which is why we re-vamped our navigation bar by retrofitting it with a new one-step search design. We’ve also added new filters, like “Items That Ship”, to help you shop local anywhere to find that perfect item. Now, we have taken it a step further by tripling the number of intelligent keywords allowed on listings.
Targeted keywords (or tags) help provide clarity and classification. As a buyer, using keywords to search can make browsing in a category easy and with multiple keyword searches, pinpoint an exact item in seconds. As a seller, incorporating intelligent keywords will include your items in more accurate search results upping your chances for a sale, great! And by auto-populating keywords based on your listing title and description, we have cut the amount of work you have to do in half.
When it comes to keywords, think big, small, detailed and big picture all at the same time. To take full advantage of all the benefits, try to focus your keywords on these following types:
- Categories (Broad/General): furniture, electronics, clothing
- Sub Categories (Specified): chair, phone, jacket
- Brand (Manufacturer/Label): Ikea, Apple, Levi’s
- Attributes (Characteristics): bar height, white, denim
- Condition (Shape/Appearance): handmade, new, vintage
Keep this list handy when creating listings and remember that a little effort here will payoff down the line. Let us know what you think about our new keyword functionality in the comments below or send us your suggestions in the Krrb Forum.
