Product Name: Please enter the name of your product here and not a model number, company name or brand name.  

Product Category:
Select a category that is the closest match for your product. More than one third of buyers search for products by category. Therefore, a matching category can dramatically increase your chances of being found by the right buyers. 

Product Keyword: A keyword is the word or phrase that buyers use to find your product, company in our Product Listings. Over 80% of Alibaba.com users use our search bar to find what they need. Therefore, choosing the right keyword is essential to help the right buyers find your product.
e.g. If your Product Name is Green Fuji Apple:

Apple is a kind of fruit, so "apple" and "fruit" can be keywords. Green (color) and Fuji (place of origin or species) are adjectives and are not good keywords. Very few buyers search with adjectives only.
