eBay Keywords Program Discontinued

eBay will be discontinuing the eBay Keywords program at the end of September. The program, which allowed eBay sellers to bid for keywords for text ad placements, will be phased out as follows:

    • 1. The week of September 5th, existing eBay Keywords text box ad placements will be removed from search results pages. eBay Keywords customers will still have access to larger graphical ad placements through the end of the month.

    • 2. On September 30th the program will close. (No ad placement inventory will be available for the eBay Keywords program.) The eBay Keywords program has been used by a very small percentage of eBay members since its launch in 2003.
Sellers who have participated in the eBay Keywords program will receive an email with more information about the closing of the eBay Keywords program.

My first blog

This is my 1st blog ever in my life. How am I feeling? I'm just getting a bit nervous, excited and don't-know-where-to-start... duh!

Who would think that an online trading community created by Pierre Omidyar in Sep'95 has now become the unbeatable auction site with more than 200 million users? I bet nobody did. Well done, eBay!

The Old saying "If you think you can, you can" does not apply to 21st century anymore 'cause Pierre never thought he could, but he made it. :)

Anyways, this blog talks anything about eBay, the greatest online marketplace ever.

So, feel free to drop a line or two. Make yourself at home.
