September 22nd, 2008, 04:47 PM #1Ebay leaks get worse and worse
Just a heads up. Auctionbytes is reporting that there are now ads on the item description pages on ebay Australia. How soon this will happen on the US site is anybody's guess, but if they can get away with doing it, they no doubt will.
I've complained about ebay leaks before. Since then I have been bending over backwards to change out links whenever I can, and when it is not possible to at least avoid linking to search pages because of all the sponsored ads.
Now it seems there really isn't going to be a way to avoid leaks at all, even if you use editor kits or other similar methods of getting people directly to an item page.
How are you guys planning on coping with this? Just wondering...

Hmmm, wonder how much eBay makes per paid ad per impression over the life of an item listing... bet it's more than they make on fees for that item.

I'm coping with it by slowly adding other networks and revenue streams to my sites. Ebay has been great for me, and probably will continue to be, but I don't want to be the last one out the door.
