Why am i not getting any views?

I am/was at the highest level of advertising and I am getting maybe one or two views a day, if that many. I was getting more views when I was at the lower fees. Am I not doing something right?

I’ve chosen to drop mine down to 9% and instead I’m giving buyers the opportunity to have a discount of 12% if purchasing $15 or more. I’ll at least keep it like this for the holidays if anything.

We’re sorry to hear that you haven’t had as many views lately, Karen! If a higher advertising level isn’t bringing in the traffic you were hoping, we may suggest moving back down to the 9% level as well.

A lot of the shoppers on Bonanza come from advertising via Google Shopping. This means that the most important things you can do are optimize your listings for search. There are four important spots to hit.

1. Writing the perfect title. You want to include as many keywords and as little punctuation as possible: http://www.bonanza.com/site_help/seller_success/how_to_write_item_titles

2. Making sure that your items traits are filled out completely: http://www.bonanza.com/site_help/general/item_trait

3. Making sure that your description is full and uses many keywords that are both in the title and not in the title.

4. Making sure that you have quality photos: http://www.bonanza.com/site_help/holiday_workshop/images

Hope this helps!

For several years now, have found the exact same thing to be true for me, so really it is pointless to set advertising level above the 9%. If my items can be found in a general Google search, not worth it to set advertising level any higher than the 9% that has them sent to Google Shopping.

Thank you. I think I’m going to reset mine back to that aw well. I honestly was getting more views at the lower setting.


I’m not getting any views at all either for the past 60 days…. May just close account all together, sale on here are slower than on ebay
