    I was reading the thread "Ebay pulse...scam or not" and it occured to me, why dont we create a program that spams a "Watch item link" to blogs and forums? I believe this is how others get on Ebay pulse.

    I dont think Ebay pulse is as effective everyone says it is...

    This would have to be a unique program due to the unique nature of the Watch Item link.

    This in turn would resolve the Ebay pulse confusions. No more wondering how to get your item on Ebay pulse.

    I am not a programmer, and know absolutely nothing about the topic. Although, I am sure A LOT of Ebayers would pay a hefty fee for someone who could come up with such a tool...

    Post your thoughts and ideas on this...could someone create a tool like this?

    I think someone could.

    I'm confident I can make a tool for this, as long as I can get more info.

    If you can be a little more specific about what needs to happen? I'm brand new to SEO and this Ebay Pulse technique.

    To get an item on Ebay pulse, your item listed on Ebay must be "watched" by an X amount of Ebay users before it can be considered for the Pulse Page.

    See the Pulse page here.. and check out the items listed on the bottom( Hot sellers)

    http://pulse.ebay.com/


    Many will debate that the Pulse page has lost its effectiveness, but either way, people are still looking for ways to get on pulse page. Many have no clue how to even do so.

    Well, I am positive that if you could spam your "Watch item link" across the web, your item on Ebay would reach the Pulse page pretty quickly. In fact, I think thats how the guys that are there now are making it to the pulse page.

    Making it on Ebay pulse is a pretty popular topic, fill this void, and you could fill your bank account...

    I am no programmer, so I have no idea what would be needed to build this program. I think if you had a knowledgable ebayer, and a decent programmer, you could make a popular product.

    I have heard that someone could get on the ebay pulse by creating a few thousand ebay accounts and e-mail accounts using an isp blocker. Then they list there item on there own account and watch the item on these several accounts. This would take a lot of time initially setting something like this up, but I think that it would be lucrative. Would ebay be able to tell you are using an ISP blocker. Would this method work? Obviously, the initial time would take hours but once that is done, you can spend a few hours logging into the accounts and pasting the link into the browser, automatically watching the item. Would this method be feasible? Please let me know.


    thanks....

    The reason I bring up this method is because, this is the only method that makes since to me. These most recent sellers have been getting on the pulse in 2-3 hours and they have been doing it consistenly for the past two months.

    thanks for your time....

    If that method would work, it can definitely be automated. I'm new to this game though, so I might have some problems finding an e-mail provider that I can automate signup/ebay signup with.
    At first glance that would be the biggest hurdle. If this technique would work that is.

    Thank you for your time...

    Maybe this info I found might help you get on the ebay pulse page or even write a script to automate the process.

    I must warn you though, don't try this from HOME.., use these methods at your own risk because this is very blackhat and WILL get you banned if not using proxies or computers at your local hotel, library, cafe, ect.

    Onwards fellow black hatters,

    In case you didn?t know, the pulse is ranked by number of ?watchers?
    Today, 1000 watchers wouldn?t even get you close to the main pulse page.
    The reason........ sellers have found a little loophole in the eBay system that
    allows them to add as many watchers to their auctions as they want to.
    The secret lies within the new ?Guest Watch? feature
    In case you haven?t seen it yet, the guest feature is something that eBay
    very recently added. Log out of your eBay account and do a search for
    one of your auctions.
    You will notice that while you are logged out, you have the ability to add
    your auction to your ?guest watch list?
    Go ahead and hit the ?watch this item? link and see what happens.
    You will be taken to a login page where you can either log into your
    account or log in as a guest.
    Log in as a guest and you will see that you have one item on your ?guest
    watch list?.
    Now go back to the auction page and you will see that you are not able to
    add the auction to your watch list a second time.
    At least that?s the way eBay intended it to work but they overlooked
    something.
    Something kind of important.
    Adding an item to your watch list saves a ?cookie? to your computer. With
    that cookie in place, eBay knows that you have already added the item
    and will not let you add it again.
    But what if that cookie wasn?t there?
    Well, that kind of changes things.
    Without that cookie, you can hit that ?watch this item? link as many times
    as you?d like and a new ?watcher? will be added each time you click it!
    Setting your browser to delete and not accept new cookies....
    For Windows users (Internet Explorer) ....
    Click on Tools, Internet Options and choose the "General" tab.
    Click the button "Delete Cookies"
    To not accept new ones, click on the "Privacy" tab and move the slider
    bar all the way to the top,
    This will block all new cookies.
    For Mac users (Safari browser) ....
    From your Safari menu select ?preferences?
    Next to Accept Cookies select ?Never? and then hit ?Show Cookies?
    Hit ?Remove all? and then hit ?Done?
    You can now hit the ?watch this item? link as many times as you?d like and
    get a new ?watcher? each time.
    A couple of things to keep in mind here....
    Deleting your cookies will make your computer not remember a few things
    like passwords to sites that might automatically remember your password.
    A few things may need to be reconfigured when you reset your computer
    to accept cookies again.
    Are your fingers getting tired just thinking about all these mouse clicks it?s
    going to take to get to the pulse?
    Don?t worry, it gets easier....
    Many of the pulse cheaters are doing this manually and maybe you don?t
    mind spending hours in front of your computer clicking your mouse over
    and over again.
    Me, I?ve got better and more productive things to do so I found some
    software that will automate the process.
    Go to http://www.quickeys.com and download a free trial of their software.
    This software totally automates many processes and one of the things
    you can do is program it to go to any url (web address), then wait a
    certain amount of time (I use 3 seconds) and then go to the url again. It?s
    a fairly tough program to learn but just this task is pretty simple.
    Here?s how to set up Quickeys...
    Install as per their instructions and open the program.
    From the ?Create? menu, select ?Internet?
    From there, select ?Web Address?
    A new window will open and you will see a drop down menu with the
    option of ?Open URL? selected. Leave that one alone.
    In the box that says ?web address to open?, type in....
    http://cgi1.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?MakeTrack&item=YOUR ITEM #
    Now go back up to the ?Create? menu and under the QuicKeys menu,
    select ?Pause?
    A new box will appear under the web address you typed in. This is where
    you will set the delay between clicks. I have a good broadband cable
    connection and a 3 second delay works just fine for me.
    If you?ve got a really fast internet connection you could probably set it for
    a shorter time and of course a longer time for a slower connection.
    Something you?ll have to play with and test out a bit.
    Now go back and look at the URL you put in. Under it and to the right you
    will see two arrows pointing down labeled ?step results?. Click on the first
    arrow.
    The ?inspector? box window will open and this is where you set what the
    software does after each task. You can set it for success or failure of the
    first task.
    In this case, you want to set both for ?continue to next step?
    Now do the same thing for the ?pause? step and set them to ?jump to
    step? then check the ?jump to specific step? button and in the box beside
    it, put in ?1?
    Now you?re in business!
    You?ve just set up the software to click on the ?add to watch list? link, wait
    a few seconds and do it again and again and again.
    Keep in mind that unless you have your browser set to open new pages
    in the same window, it will open a new window each time it hits the url.
    This ?watch? manipulation has been a problem on eBay for a little while
    now and they don?t seem to be doing anything about it.
    Why?
    I just don?t know.
    I?m really hoping that with the mass release of this report that the problem
    becomes even bigger so they are forced to stop it.
    But until then....
    Have fun!

    Just use a script... i have use this kind of script but as soon ebay find out you have insert this script in your html they close your auction.

    Maybe there's an alternative, if you use the Ebay affiliate program and drive a lot of traffic to Ebay then maybe you can insert this script in your webpage and maybe this will work...

    Simply excellent flogger. Looks like Bodeezy.com needs to add to it's eBay bot collection. Excellent tactic, kudos.

    Sorry guys - flogger's methodology won't work - I use the ebay API all the time - there was an exploit that you could use using the google bar ebay watcher add on - but they have since closed that loop hole - Guest watchers do not count on the watch list for the pulse - Now I do know how they can get 70,000 watchers - I have the script that can do it - there is a kink though - anyhow - if you want my report on the scripts and the blackhat ways of getting watchers - here ya go - I have been getting $5 for this - but for this forum you can have it Free.


    Maybe I can get a rep out of this:wall:
