Amazon alerts sellers to improve the classification of a listing when a listing is not correctly classified on the website. These listings are either missing a Category (Item-type) or are assigned one that is too broad. This reduces sales of these listings because buyers have a more difficult time finding them using search or browse. Our studies have shown that you can improve sales by moving a listing to the correct location.
|Correctly Categorized Listings||Incorrectly Categorized Listings|
|(Category: Digital SLR Cameras)||(Category: Digital Cameras)|
|This listing is shown in the Digital SLR Camera browse node and all locations above this. A buyer would be able to easily find this listing in the Digital SLR Camera browse node.
||This listing is shown in the Digital Camera browse node. A buyer would not find this listing in the Digital SLR Camera browse node, even though that is the correct node for this product.
