eBay is offering sellers pay-per-click advertising through it’s partner network. Doc wonders if this has anything to do with eBay sellers listing and keywords not being visible through any normal off site search.
In Doc’s previous post he did a series of tests on eBay Motors Vehicles VIN Searches. Doc recently conducted more tests on eBay Motors searching for sellers phone numbers, names, etc, in the listing body and didn’t come up with hardly anything.
He needed a right rear window regulator for an 2001 Cadillac Deville and did a Google search for the part, Several online stores came up first, one being partstrain.com that had it for 58.00 including shipping. Further down the page there was two eBay results, one store did not have it, and the other had it but complete with the motor (that i did not need) for 160.00! No Thanks!
So Doc’s question is, Is best match allowing the high price item to become visible because they make more off of it? I did find another seller on eBay selling just the regulator but for 74.00. eBay just held a webanar for Diamond & Titanium Power Sellers. Naturally Doc was not invited.
