    Hi Everyone
    This topic is a source of interest and would like to hear your thoughts...
    I have bought and sold stuff on ebay many times but 'watchers' and views would appear to give your product/service a better chance of selling or at least being seen
    So first question, is my previous statement true or just myth?
    If true, then is there a ebay watcher's exchange system... if not, would anyone be interested?
    Could re-code addmefast then use imacros ;)
    Anyway, I look forward to your feedback and comments

    smart method, wonder if such a thing exists myself. Im guessing the way to go about this is to have a stack of 50 or more ebay accounts and use a bot to click watch on the item. Since i don't know how to program or code, i doubt such a system like i have mentioned wouldn't be too expensive. Not sure if what im saying would work, could be more complex than that.

    Hi Guys
    Thanks for the comments/reply
    BuritoBandito - well I was thinking of testing it on a small scale and if it works I'll see what I can do to get it coded
    Coreyvf - basically, to sell anything on ebay you need to be found in their searches. But, the problem is that you re not the only person sell a particular item. Powersellers always seem to come up first but I have noticed that 'items for sale' which have many watchers 'watch this item' option under the price and number of view gets you higher in the search results.

    So, what I am suggesting is for experiment one, we get as many people as want to do this test to all post 1 item for auction/sale on ebay then in turn we all go 'watch' each other's item.

    Then we post the results here of the total number of watchers, views and if the item sold for a good price

    If that all works as I suspect it would then it may be worth finding someone to code a watcher exchange system :)
