To get specific item information, I recommend using GetSingleItem in the Shopping API: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/shopping/docs/CallRef/GetSingleItem.html You should be able to get pricing info with that, but last I checked you probably cannot get the number of watchers. This API call from the Merchandising API will show number of watchers, but only of top-watched items: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/merchandising/docs/CallRef/getMostWatchedItems.html

Thanks for quick reply. I do need to use findItemsByKeywords API for the reason that I am doing ranking algorithm. I want to use the count this item is solded and how many people watch this item to define how popular it is. Is this possible?

If the Finding API calls don't return the quantity sold (check all the various output selectors), then maybe you might consider using [this API call][1] to supplement the data you need for many items returned from findItemsByKeywords. I don't think you can get the number of watchers from the various Finding API calls. [1]: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/shopping/docs/CallRef/GetMultipleItems.html
