After analyzing how Amazon SEO works in a general way, let’s focus in one of the main points, the Amazon title.
Your product title along with the thumbnail image is the first information customers see when visiting your detail pages. It should provide customers with sufficient information that encourages them to continue looking at the product offerings.
Give your products the best possible chance of ranking and converting by using longtail keywords in your product titles. Amazon is always looking for more conversions because conversions lead to more sales on its platform. By giving Amazon what they want (more sales), you are getting what you want, too (more revenue).
Amazon suggests incorporating the following when optimizing your product title:
Brand – Product Line – Material or Key Feature – Product Type – Color – Size – Quantity
But the limit of the product title character may change in order to have a better classification between categories. Below you have a few of the recommended formats.
|Product Type||Amazon Title Style|
|Cookware & Cutlery||Brand + Line + Size + Product Type|
|Cook’s Tools & Gadgets||Brand(+Model Number if necessary) + Model Name + Product Type, Color|
|Small Appliances, Home Environment||Brand + Model Number + Model Name + Product Type, Color|
|Tableware||Brand + Pattern + Product Type, Number of Pieces|
|Bedding||Brand + Line/Pattern + Thread Count + Material + Size + Product Type, Color|

Table 1. Recommended formats for Amazon title
For Amazon SEO purposes, always place the highest valued keyword towards the beginning, and work your way down to the least important. The A9 algorithm correlates higher relevance with keywords that appear earlier in the Amazon title. Although, this does not mean you should keyword stuff your Amazon titles. In addition, here are some of the dos and don’ts for creating a good product title:
· Provide a short and informative Amazon title that helps customers quickly identify the product · Limit to 200 characters Note: The maximum character limit is 250 however, we advise you to limit to 200 characters.
· Capitalize the first letter of each word except: the, and, or, for, a, an, in, over, with · Write numbers as numerals (2 instead of two)
· Make use of special characters, like the ones below, to add some style and naturally break up phrases:
|· Do not use HTML tags or special characters not on a standard keyboard|
· Do not use other Type 1 High ASCII characters or symbols (such as ! * $ ?)
· Do not use all capitals: THEY MAKE CONTENT HARD TO READ
· Do not capitalize: · Conjunctions (and, or, for) · Articles (the, a, an) · Prepositions with fewer than five letters (in, on, over, with, etc.)
· Do not include:
· Promotional messages such as “sale”
· Subjective or time-sensitive comments i.e. “great value” or “hot this year”
· Too much information. Titles should contain the minimum information needed to identify the item. More information makes it hard for customers to scan and identify items, and may harm your search results
· Price or availability
· Product features, product descriptions.
