The Listing Quality Analysis (LQA) datasets are designed to help you optimize your Amazon and Walmart listings. The datasets provide an in-depth analysis of key criteria that impact the quality and performance of your listings, including title, description, bullet points, and media criteria. With these datasets, you can identify areas for improvement and make data-driven decisions to enhance the visibility and sales potential of your products.
This article details new LQA datasets. The following tables are independent material:
Criteria are specific characteristics that can be observed in a listing, such as the number of images or the length of the title. Every day, we analyze your tracked products and extract the data corresponding to each of these criteria. This extracted data is the observed content for a specific criterion.
Every day, we compare your products against a set of Amazon guidelines and recommendations that we call Rules. They are sourced from Amazon’s official documentation. Walmart will be supported in the future.
The LQS is a default score that we compute based on the LQA rules, using weights assigned to each rule according to Amazon guidelines. The more important a rule is for the quality of your listing, the greater its weight.
This score is based on an in-house weighting system; we provide it as a starting point. You can build your score using all the available data.
A section is a basic content element of your listing. We analyze four sections: Title, Description, Bullet Points, and Media.
This section details how to use the LQA datasets to:
- Diagnose the quality of your listing content
- Rank higher in search results
- Convert more users to purchase

With destinations, you can enrich your analysis with all the information about your products, such as their sales or estimated monthly sales, price, rating... It enables to analyze specific subsets of products, such as those with the highest sales, the most significant volume, or newly launched ones. Additionally, you can leverage the tags system to analyze a specific selection of products.
Using destinations, your accompanying DataHawk-powered Snowflake or BigQuery database contains multiple tables about Listing Quality Analysis. These tables have a very exhaustive list of data points as columns and are organized into schemas. All Listing Quality Analysis data is available under the

An empty observed content means that we did not observe the criterion in question. For example, an empty observed content for the criterion Emojis in title indicates that we did not find any emojis in the title.
Our LQS score is based on a subjective weighting system, we provide it as a starting point for your analyses. You can also build your own score using all the available data. The more important a rule is for the quality of your listing, the greater its weight.

The formula used to compute each product’s LQS is based on the weight of its corresponding section and the weight of the rule.
Rules weights are described in the table above.
Sections weights are as follows:
|SECTION||LQS WEIGHT||LQS WEIGHT EXPLANATION|
|TITLE||5||Highly important for searchability|
|MEDIA||4||Very important for understanding and visibility|
|BULLET POINTS||3||Moderately important for readability and understanding|
|DESCRIPTION||2||Slightly important for understanding|
Each section listing quality score (title, bullet points, media, and description listing quality scores) is computed using the following formula that takes into account the rules relative to the corresponding section:
Once all sub-scores are computed, we compute the global LQS following this formula:
Why are some LQS not filled out?
If one section score is missing because of missing data, then we do not compute the global LQS.
Rules and Listing Quality Score are only supported for Amazon for now. Walmart will be supported soon.
