eBay Considers Limiting Search Results to 5 Items
By: Ina Steiner
How would you feel if eBay limited product searches by showing buyers only the top five most relevant search items, with a link to see other items? That's the question on a new survey eBay is conducting on a host of changes the marketplace is considering.
This Newsflash article
contains more information about the survey, which eBay sent out to sellers today. The questions covered a range of issues, from fees to Daily Deals to advertising and drop-shipping.
But the topic that really caught our eye was the ones dealing with a proposed change to search.
How important is it to you to minimize the buyer's search results to the most relevant items?
How would you feel if a product search on eBay showed buyers only the top 5 most relevant search items? A link to see the other items would be provided.
How would you feel if searches on eBay continued to return all items that match the search criteria, as is the case today?
We'd love to hear what you think of that concept, and about the other questions eBay asked sellers in this week's survey.
