This appeared last night in a Business Topics forum
title of the post was: Staying in first page of a given search...
It's worth reading this response below to that topic, I think it was midway down the page:
Most of the listings displayed in the search results as well as in Browse, are
-- listings from very high selling shops
-- listings with many repeat sales
-- listings with many hearts/faves
-- listings that are included in many treasuries
. . . in other words, popular listings.
Once your new items gain hearts and favorites, they will be seen in more and more searches. Listings that are sold and renewed will also appear in more and more searches.

So the answer is yes.
