    Ebay Questions
    Forgive me if my questions seem noob to you but I can not seem to find the answers to my questions anywhere so I thought I would ask you fine people.


    1.) I was curious if buying traffic form a Web Traffic hosting company is prohibited? I know that PPC ads are no longer allowed through Google, Yahoo, and etc. but is this sort of highly targeted traffic still allowed. I do not see anywhere in the eBay agreement saying this is not allowed...


    2.) I was also wondering if I can use URL redirection so I can pass users from my domain to the ebay domain? I want to do this so I can better track the traffic and get more targeted reports.



    Please let me know, Thank for your help ahead of time :-)

    1. Not sure.

    2. You can. Just don't redirect straight from an eBay owned page or you'll sure get in trouble. Also I have seen reports of CJ questioning why there is no referrer, I *suspect* these cases are instant redirects. I have been tracking with 1 second redirects for well over a year with no issues.

    I use a combo of javascript and meta-refresh like so...

    Code:
    YOUR STAT CODE HERE
     
    
    Replace the parts in red. This will execute your stats and redirect in 1 second whether javascript is enabled or not.

    You're welcome.

    I use StatCounter, I think it's much better. Google means well, but they clutter up the interface too bad with a bunch of crap I don't need.
