    I can only speak to the EK and text links as that's all we've used. They seem to convert well. CTR is about 42% and EPC is about $32 month to date with no ACRUs so far this month...

    Cool
    this came in a very recent email addressed to the US program:

    "We are also excited to have just released a Beta version of the much anticipated Custom Banner Widget. This new widget is similar to Editor Kit but allows you complete control over the appearance and auction listing results it displays. Try it out!"

    so maybe we have a new toy . . .

    I've had the most luck with text links. Probably 90% of my revenue comes from them.

    I like either the custom banner or editor kit, whichever one is easier to implement to your site.

    Also, I always sort the results (for a search link) "items ending soonest" that way you get items ending soon at the top. The "Best match" option is a joke.

    you refer to attracting "number of click" or
    better "click to conversion" ?

    i always thing a simple text link is not noticeable on a webpage compared to a large ebay listing panel, what do you think ?

    At this point I am tempted to say "Any method that won't get my account closed", but seriously, text links in context of a content page are probably most effective. They are not ignored, and they are a natural extension of the content.

    I mix EPN Text Links in with my text. For example, I talk about products or a group of products and text link them in. It has worked great for me. Add Photo's/other useful information...ect.

    Example Sentence: iPhones are powerful and allow you to do things on your mobile phone that your laptop can't even do. I found that you <epn link: can buy them cheaper on eBay than at the store>


    That's just a late night example (and I don't have an iPhone site) but hopefully that will help you out a little. You want to make the reader curious about the price they can get the item for on eBay so they click through and check it out.
