Feature Request - Hidden (Search) Keywords

I am not an FBA/FBM seller but I know there is a keyword field where you can enter quite a few keywords for which you would show up in search results without having them in place in title or list/bullet points. This is one area which I find is lacking in Merch by Amazon.

We see also complaints from many every now and then about how people are keyword spamming the bullet lists. I believe if there was a keyword input field like Sellers Central, these group of people would be actually compelled to write a nice sentence instead.

And there's only so many sentences one can form without looking unnatural. If there was a keyword input field, we could enter a lot of untapped/potential keywords as one cannot fit enough of them in natural sentence and also considering the character count limit.

So this is a suggestion for it. Help us have a search keywords field where we could enter them and be founded if someone searches for it.

Thanks.

this would be ideal. There's no real 'keywords' section aside from features and description

Agreed. We should be able to put in upto 1,000 hidden keywords. Amazon should also give us a tool to do keyword research. We should not have to use AdWords keyword tool. Every platform is different. Google results will be different from Amazon results.

Tagging this as a feature request (which incidentally is a keyword within our forum tools).

Feature requests are shared with engineering teams with related data, but I will not have an estimated timeline or information on where it fits within the current priorities.

this would be * great * - Would allow us to use related keywords properly without having to stuff them in into the bullet points and description, trying still to make the texts have a sense and be nicely readen by the potential customers... Hoping it makes it to the To-Do list! :-) Thanks
