***Coming Soon: Extended Title***

Date: 12/31/03 Time: 06:16:23 PM PST

Many members of the Community have let us know that they would like to be able to add more text to their Item Title. We are very pleased to announce that, beginning in mid-February, we will be offering an additional ten (10) characters to the Item Title as part of the basic insertion fee. Currently the Title allows for 45 characters of text, and this will be increased to a total of 55 characters.

The extra ten characters will allow sellers to further describe their items and help buyers better decide which items to look at. The longer Title will be searchable through Title Search, the same way that it is today. Extended Title will be introduced on the U.S. site in mid-February, and on international sites a few weeks later.

We hope this enhancement improves your selling and buying experience on eBay.

Regards,
eBay

Bidders frequently search "no reserve" or NR.

Also, if any of your work can be viewed as being impressionistic, be sure to include:
"impressionist"

"Landscape" may also be used, when applicable.

Yes, we could. :)
We started doing this on one of the threads dealing with sellathon.

BTW bidders sometimes search colors.

Also, we will all use different search terms depending on our subject matter and styles.

I use "outsider art" for my work which is off the beaten track and I can't believe the frequency with which it is used by bidders!

Nina, this is quite funny. However, it's a good thing. You have made an impression. They remember that your name is Nina and that you paint those great nudes with big butts. You are becoming the famous 'Nina, the big butt nude painter'. LOL... Sorry, couldn't resist. But I mean it about making an impression. good going.

Anyone not including their ID might consider using the extra characters for that. Someone heard I was on ebay and couldn't find me anywhere (my name was in only in a JPG file). I now have my ID in the title and my name in the description.

I lost a lot of space doing that (I'd set up my ID before I read the excellent advice to keep it short). I'll probably use the extra characters to make sure "original" is in every title.

Hi Laura,

In order for people to find you, IMHO, you don't need to use the long "iversongallery."

I suggest you use "iverson" to identify your listings instead. I think there is only one other "iverson" who is an artist, whose work could never be mistaken for yours.

Just my 2 cents.

:)

Thanks, Nina.

I put in the whole ID because I'm running the banners (I have my ID on them) and I thought people might remember the ID and search for it. It's kind of a long shot, though. It's probably better to switch to "iverson" (then I could fit in "original").
