How to do SEO Optimized Listing on Amazon

Before that we will know

What is Product Listing?

Uploading the products information for the purpose of selling on any eCommerce website, so that it’s visible to customers and customers can purchase is known as product listing.. 



What is SEO optimized listing? 

Search engine optimized listing is the listing in which product is focus on two things:

  • Keywords
  • Search engine

We add the keywords in our listing so that we can appear on top and accurate on keywords in particular search engines. 


Elements on the listing in Amazon:

  • Category and Sub Category 
  • Manufacturer 
  • Media (images and videos)  
  • Title or Product Name 
  • Brand Name 
  • Short Description 
  • Long Description 
  • Bullets Description 
  • Price 
  • Quantity 
  • Variants 
  • Product ID (UPC, ASIN, GTIN, ISBN) 
  • Measurements
  • Search terms 
  • Enhanced Brand Content (EBC) OR A+ Content  
  • MOQ ( not valid for Amazon)  





Step No. 1 Selecting Product Type

We can list 2 types of products on amazon  

  1. Which is already selling on amazon
  2. Which is not selling on amazon 

If we want to sell the product already selling on amazon you need to provide the product ASIN or if you want to sell a new product then select that option.



Step No.2 Selecting Category and Sub Category on Amazon

As amazon has thousands of products listed to provide the best customer experience and to handle their own data records so that everything is well organized, they have created a number of categories and subcategories. This is the first step of the product listing that we do! 

It also helps us in BSR. BSR is of each category and it provides us the information on which ranking we are standing according to our category and subcategory! 


Step No.3 Product ID

Product ID is the value that can be in the form of UPC, GTIN, ASIN etc
. 

For the products that are already selling on amazon, we don’t need any UPC or any other barcode. They are selling, because they have the barcodes. So we want to sell the product which is not sold on amazon (Private Label) Products then we need the barcodes! 


History of Barcodes: 

As products were increasing day by day, it was difficult to know about the product information, like brand name,  who is the parent of the product etc
 

By creating the organization named GS1( https://www.gs1.org/ ), this problem was solved!

GS1 is not for profit organization and issues. 

Features of Barcodes 

  • Global identification of the product (every GTIN is unique)
  • Starting digits are company prefix, means that it has company digits in GTIN 
  • It’s CNIC for the product 
  • It provides Company information that who’s the parent of the product 
  • We can verify the GTin by using this link  ( https://gepir.gs1.org/index.php/search-by-gtin ) 

What if we don’t have barcodes and brand names? 

If the seller doesn't have any brand name or barcode on the product, then you can apply for GTIN exemption! You need to contact amazon seller central customer support, so that they can allow you to sell the product without brand name and barcode!

They will ask about which category in your account you want to apply for the GTIN exemption! You have to specify your categories, amazon may ask for the product pictures as well, which you want to sell! 

What happens After GTIN exemption?

After GTIN exemption, the product ID option will be locked/disabled and you cannot edit it anymore! 

And in the brand name you need to write “Generic”! 

Step number 4: Product titles

What are product titles/ Product Names? 

Product titles or names are always written in text, and it includes the name of the product, how a product can be searched by a customer before purchasing the product! 

Importance of product titles?
