I haven't seen a tranny from eBay in over a week. I've had daily activity, 5-10 bids/bins and an ACRU every other day for the last month and as of May 4th, NOTHING.
Anyone made anything from eBay in the last week?
Seen a drop off in activity?

So far this month I've had 10 active registrations and 316 bids/BINs. Seeing daily activity of $2 to $4 on the bids/BINs. Seems registrations are more difficult to come by, but then they're are a heck of a lot of registered members already out there. Four days out of 12 this month without an active registration. Two days had two registrations, six days had one registration.
I do have a lot of eBay pages out there. There's an editor kit results box at the bottom of just about every product page at my site (probably about 4,000 pages).

I got 1-2 new registrations every day for the past two months and only 10% of them became active eventually. I couln't figure out why. I guess either Ebay didn't track properly or someone stealed my commission. I do have a lot of bids/BIN everyday. It's not worth my money and effort to promote it any more.

This might be a silly question but...
How do you make 4,000 pages
Did it take a long time?

Ten to fifty pages a day (not every single day) since 2002 and it adds up. Basically, I use the daffodil principal:
* The Daffodil Principle *
Several times my daughter had telephoned to say, "Mother, you must come see the daffodils before they are over."
I wanted to go, but it was a two-hour drive from Laguna to Lake Arrowhead. "I will come next Tuesday," I promised, a little reluctantly, on her third call.
Next Tuesday dawned cold and rainy. Still, I had promised, and so I drove there. When I finally walked into Carolyn's house and hugged and greeted my grandchildren I said, "Forget the daffodils, Carolyn! The road is invisible in the clouds and fog, and there is nothing in the world except you and these children that I want to see bad enough to drive another inch!"
My daughter smiled calmly, "We drive in this all the time, Mother."
"Well, you won't get me back on the road until it clears - and then I'm heading for home!" I assured her.
"I was hoping you'd take me over to the garage to pick up my car."
"How far will we have to drive?"
"Just a few blocks," Carolyn said, "I'll drive. I'm used to this."
After several minutes I had to ask, "Where are we going?
This isn't the way to the garage!"
"We're going to my garage the long way," Carolyn smiled, "by way of the daffodils."
"Carolyn," I said sternly, "please turn around."
"It's all right, Mother. I promise you will never forgive yourself if you miss this experience."
After about twenty minutes, we turned onto a small gravel road and I saw a small church. On the far side of the church, I saw a hand-lettered sign "Daffodil Garden."
We got out of the car and each took a child's hand, and I followed Carolyn down the path. Then we turned a corner of the path, and I looked up and gasped.
Before me lay the most glorious sight. It looked as though someone had taken a great vat of gold and poured it down over the mountain peak and slopes.
The flowers were planted in majestic, swirling patterns, great ribbons and swaths of deep orange, white, lemon-yellow, salmon-pink, saffron, and butter-yellow. Each different-colored variety was planted as a group so that it swirled and flowed like its own river with its own unique hue.
Five acres of flowers.
"But who has done this?" I asked Carolyn.
"It's just one woman," Carolyn answered. "She lives on the property. That's her home."
Carolyn pointed to a well-kept A-frame house that looked small and modest in the midst of all that glory.
We walked up to the house. On the patio we saw a poster:
"Answers to the Questions I Know You Are Asking"
was the headline.
The first answer was a simple one: "50,000 bulbs," it read.
The second answer was, "One at a time, by one woman.
"Two hands, two feet, and very little brain."
The third answer was, "Began in 1958."
There it was.
The Daffodil Principle.
For me that moment was a life-changing experience. I thought of this woman whom I had never met, who, more than thirty-five years before, had begun-one bulb at
a time-to bring her vision of beauty and joy to an obscure mountaintop.
Still, just planting one bulb at a time, year after year, had changed the world.
This unknown woman had forever changed the world in which she lived. She had created something of ineffable magnificence, beauty, and inspiration.
The principle her daffodil garden taught is one of the greatest principles of celebration: learning to move toward our goals and desires one step at a time often just one baby-step at a time learning to love the doing learning to use the accumulation of time When we multiply tiny pieces of time with small
increments of daily effort, we too will find we can accomplish magnificent things.
We can change the world.
"It makes me sad in a way," I admitted to Carolyn.
"What might I have accomplished if I had thought of a wonderful goal thirty-five years ago and had worked away at it one bulb at a time through all those years. Just think what I might have been able to achieve!"
My daughter summed up the message of the day in her direct way.
"Start now," she said.

eBay certainly seems off kilter to me lately. Lots of clicks, but not many BINs, ACRUs, or bids placed apparently. Registrations that go active are in the hole. Seems unusual...
