So, what does this mean for Amazon sellers?
By adding relevant LSI keywords in the product title, bullet points, and backend keywords, you give Amazon more context about your product. It helps the product listing to rank higher on the search result and reach a wider audience.
One of the easiest ways to find LSI keywords is by starting with basic keyword research and analyzing the autocomplete results in Amazon’s search bar.
It provides you with valuable insights into the long-tail and LSI keywords that potential customers use to search for products similar to yours.
Simply type in a primary keyword related to your product, such as “men’s shoes,” into Amazon’s search bar.
As you start typing, you’ll see a list of autocomplete suggestions appear below the search bar. These suggestions are based on the most popular searches related to your initial keyword.
For example, if you type “mens shoes a,” the search suggestions may include “mens shoes Adidas,” “men’s shoes as is,” “men’s shoes athletic,” and so on.
Similarly, if you type “mens shoes b,” the search suggestions may include “mens shoes black,” “men’s shoes brooks,” and so on.
Include the highly relevant keywords in your product listing and as backend search terms.

You can narrow down the best long-tail keywords and phrases that align the most with your products/services. Target those keywords and improve your other customer metrics such as shipping rate and customer service. This helps you scale your business growth in the longer run.
