eBay concept I'm considering testing?

    I've been wondering recently what effect increasing traffic to a particular listing would have on it?

    We've all seen those awful "1000 clicks for $1" ads, they're pretty much worthless when it comes to websites, however with eBay focusing a lot of it's search position ranking on views, I wondered if it's worth a try on a single listing maybe?

    Of course, we need to consider the impact on the listing, as I do know eBay uses sale to view rations (e.g. 1 sale for every would make the item have a high saleability and usually appear higher in the listing).

    Just an idea, I have a few accounts and was willing to test it on a single item.

    Could be a useful test but as you say they are pretty sharp with shady traffic so watch out with it!

    I have very well experimented this and burnt over $100 in the process.
    It doesn't work well, what you gotta be looking instead is increase the Sales per *** views and Watchers per *** views. Instead of just increasing views, you are better off with lesser views instead of no sales.

    If you have insane views for a category, let's say 100 views is the normal views and your listing in that category gets 1,000 views your listing will be thrown at the end of the search results because eBay doesn't want to promote listings which are not converting. So basically try to increase sales/views ratios and watchers/views ratio.

    That's just my take on this.
