    Anyways, has anyone experienced trouble with these ".../bhp/..." ebay listings out ranking them? I have another keyword where I'm #1 but the eBay listing .../bhp/keyword-etc-etc is always #2.

    Just curious to hear some other experiences, thoughts, and possible solutions on how to get around eBay in this way. Thanks!

    Well...I'll give you one tip... I would suggest not posting a specific keyword with "there isn't much competition" in the forums. You are begging for more competition by doing so.

    I'm not exactly sure which site is yours, but looking at that keyword, ebay is about the only site that seems to not have any backlinks going to the page. Google is really liking ebay for that term. I've seen the same with Amazon too. The only real way to out beat them is to boost your overall site's PR and also boosting that page's PR. Backlinks to the site, and backlinks to the inner page you are trying to rank.

    Ebay listings should be easy to crush in the serps as they have no SEO going to them. You need high PR back links.

    If ebay listings are beating you...you're doing it wrong.

    They do not need direct SEO when they have this huge ass authority site backing them with major PR.
