The Best Key Words Around – “Old” & “Rare”

The trick about the eBay title is that the seller only gets 45 characters to sell you on their item.  If you look at eBay as much as I do you’ll see everyone has a different gimmick for how they use those 45 spaces.  Some sellers try to stuff as many words into that title box as they can.  So for this post I wanted to investigate two of the key words that I frequently see on eBay.  My research shows that 1224 times over the last thirty days the term “old” was used in a listing title.   Over the same period the term “rare” was used 715 times.  While these words get tossed around pretty easily on eBay I did find these items that I think fit the bill of being old and rare!
