This project is to research and abbreviate 2500 book titles into the form of "search phrases" that can be put into Ebay's search engine. Basically, I have a database of book titles that I would like to search for on Ebay, but it takes some skill and research to turn the book title into an acceptable Ebay "search phrase" that is just specific enough to generate the right amount of results.
I will use as an example the book title, "Audio Systems Design And Installation." The type of searches that I want will be exact phrases, so the search phrase will be surrounded by quotation marks. I use [url removed, login to view] to research how specific the phrase needs to be. If I search for "audio systems" on amazon (use books section, "advanced search"), I receive 41 results. This is too many, so I will add another word, "audio systems design." This is more acceptable. Only 8 titles come up, and only the first title is an exact match (Amazon©s search program will often return "related" but not matching results.)
Since many words in Ebay auction titles are mis-spelled or abbrevited, the words of the search phrase will have to be shortened to just the right length using the "*" symbol. This is a "wildcard" symbol, so "bat*" will return "bat" "batter" "battle," etc. So the search phrase "Audio Systems Design" would be shortened to "Aud* Systems Des*" I abbreviate only every other word (or 2 out of 3), since too many consecutive abbreviated words will disrutpt Ebay's search engine. Also, the words cannot be abbreviated to less than 3 letters, as this will also disruput the search engine.
The attached file contains a sample of 20 completed search phrases in .csv (Excel) file format.
I can create a search phrase in about 30 seconds, but it will probably take longer for someone who has not done this before. The person doing this work has to be able to make good judgements and work quickly, otherwise it can take a long time do this type of work properly. This is just a small sample of my database, so there would be much more work available to someone who could learn to do this well. Thanks.
