    First off, This article was not written by me, I just found it on the net and decided to share it with all of my peeps. Let me know if you think this is worth a go.

    How it Works


    • First and foremost, visit http://www.motors.ebay.com/ and choose an extremely high priced vehicle. The rarer and more custom the better. It?s always good to go with vehicles in the 500k range for best results.
      • This will cause attention when you market it since people don?t see these too often.


    Post to Forums


    1. Next do a quick Google search for forums and websites where people discuss vehicles. You will want to look for the sites/forums with the most activity and discussions. This means you will have a better chance at people seeing any posts you make.
    2. Now start creating your posts! Post a topic with the title ?This is INSANE! Check out the price of this Porsche!?
    3. Now that you are all set with the forum and you have the post started, lets finish it! In the post description, type in something like ?OMG, I was just browsing ebay for parts and I stumbled upon this badass Mustang, I?d love to own one, but you won?t believe the price ? <ebay link>?.
    4. After you have created about 10 posts or so in each forum you choose, by now you should be able to place a link or banner in the footer. Place a link/banner and start having discussions throughout the forum, which will have you drawing more attention to the link since its in your footer.
    5. Now just rinse and repeat on other related forums.




    Why does this work?

    Well each time a visitor goes through the eBay link, eBay pays you a small given amount depending upon how good the traffic is (The % that spend money there).
    Each related topic will get you at least 200 uniques, it?s not surprising to get 10k hits to eBay Partner Network with about 30 ? 40 posts a week.
    At 3 cents per click, you can easily make $300-$500 per week from eBay with just 4-5 hours worth of work per week!
    VERY IMPORTANT: One thing I have to STRESS is that the link HAS to be value adding to be a successful money maker for you. You need the link to stay around, and you want people to bump it with comments. Now, there is NO reason to spam, as you can make thousands quickly with very few posts. You will definitely make less money if you spam, spamming this does not work! Tools to automate this should always have a custom message printed by a human that fits each forum?s genre. For instance, I have automated it, but I have a tool that let?s me change the message for each niche of forum, this is critical, it MUST BE VALUE ADDING, IF YOU INTEND TO SPAM ONLY YOU WILL MAKE NOTHING!
    PS: Of course make sure the eBay rover link is cloaked, users won?t click on rover links!


    Curious How to Redirect?

    The reason you redirect the link is so that eBay doesn?t think your spamming their link all over the place.

    1. You will first need a website to redirect the link from. If you don?t have a site already, create a simple quick and easy one.
    2. In the header of the page that is being redirected, place the following code:
    3. <META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT=?0;URL=http://www.the-ebay-site.com?>
    4. Just replace the ?http://www.the-ebay-site.com? with the site you want to redirect to and your done!

    yep It?s called the ?eBay Partner Network? and it can drive some serious revenue if you put in the effort.

    Can't you use a simple url shortener like bit.ly for this and cloak it via hyperlink or a banner?

    Actually eBay doesn't have a true CPC service. The way it works now, which I'm not a big fan of, is that they use a formula to evaluate your traffic, I think they call it "quality click pricing", and it is based on your how much traffic you bring, how many of them win auctions, and how many of them bid but lose.

    I find it to be an a$$ pain because there is no real way to see if you are getting the amount of commissions you deserve, because they don't share the formula they are using.

    Also, they don't group all of your clicks together, so if you have multiple sites like I do that bring in clicks, they segment them based on which site they come from. So, I have days where I'll bring in hundreds of clicks from one site and get paid zero for it, but I'll get 3 clicks from another site and get paid less than a dollar.

    I personally liked the straight commission system better, but I'm sure this probably helps eBay make more money in the end... I still do OK with it, but I haven't put up any new sites since they went with this method...

    Oh ya, if you would like to read about quality click pricing you can see it here:

    Does someone you direct through your link have to bid on the car since they base your commission on the value of your clicks? Seems like a crazy expensive car would be a hard sell...or am I confused?
