    Hello,

    I was just wondering if anyone knows if a link in an eBay listing would pass link juice. Are they follow or nofollow links?
    Also, if I was to embed a 1x1 pixel affiliate (or redirect) site into said listing would ebay notice.
    What about adsense lol.

    Just got me thinking that's all as I have spent all day listing on ebay and have 100 items on, thought perhaps I could use the listings in other ways.

    I would like to think that it could help you, but they probably use no follow.

    However you know ebay comes up in the serps for products so you should try listing your url just straight out, then mention your website in plain text, then try doing an anchor text and see what happens.

    The best way to find out is to test and see what happens. Peace.

    Any backlink would be temporary and when you lost it you'd be worse off than before I'd imagine. It's nofollow though so maybe they won't penalize you if it leaves, but still sounds iffey.
