Anyone can get to the top.

Ive spent a lot of times researching almost every product I list end up at the top.

Ive also seen some ebayers with like 50 feedback 98% positive and theyre at the top for certain products where others have 100% and still don't sell as much

Please don't try and make sense of it. It's all about what hidden limits your account has. If you don't understand what hidden limits are, you should start by researching them and not quick ways to reach the top. Ebay control everything!

All my products appear within the top 3 of search results by entering merely two words of the product title.

So from my experience, it seems some people's posts are pointing you in the wrong direction.

Nobody will tell you how to do it step by step, as you can wipe your competitors out very easily. But what I will leave you with is, everything needs to be perfect, DSRs included.

If you have two sellers listing identical items at same price, one seller registered as a private seller the other using a business account, the listings from the private account nearly always achieve higher ranking in ebay search than those on the business account. Weird but true - this has been reported many times by sellers on the ebay business seller forum. Obviously if the business seller is selling hundreds of items compared to the private account he will probably eventually achive a higher ranking in search, but in general the private account is almost always higher. This even applies to private accounts with poor feedback compared to business sellers with 100% feedback and excellent dsrs.

Unfortunately ebay seem to shaft the business seller as often as they can and seem to hold them accountable for everything, whilst sellers who are clearly running full time businesses on private accounts are allowed to flout all the rules business sellers have to abide by.

As play said no one will tell you

Many many tricks available and if you can't improve your dsr then forgot to sell on eBay
My products comes on top 1 to 3 if it's down then I stop selling that item since it's not worth for me.
The best service you provide to your customer batter you search result will be
