|AuctionBytes Classified Ads Now Indexed in Froogle Search Results
Online Sellers Can Advertise on Largest
Auction News Site
March 11, 2003, Natick, MA -
AuctionBytes has enhanced its Buyers Market classified ads, a service where users can
advertise their online auctions, storefronts and Web sites. Among the new features is a
"Buy Now" button that allows customers to purchase items directly from a Buyers
Market listing and pay using online payment service PayPal.
In addition, Google has added AuctionBytes' Buyers Market "Buy Now" listings to
its Froogle shopping search engine. Froogle helps searchers locate stores that sell the
items they want, pointing directly to the place where they can purchase the item. (http://froogle.google.com/froogle/about.html)
AuctionBytes is providing a direct data feed to Froogle so that Buyers Market classified
ads can be seen by thousands of potential customers. Buyers Market ads are also rotated in
the AuctionBytes newsletters, and are featured in the Buyers Market section of the
AuctionBytes Web site.
"Froogle has the potential to level the playing field for sellers with their own
stores and Web sites, and we're excited to be a part of that," said David Steiner,
President of AuctionBytes.
Many sellers point to their "About Me" pages on eBay and other auction sites in
addition to their own Web sites, while others use the Buyers Market to sell individual
items. An example of a "Buyers Market" Froogle listing can be viewed at http://tinyurl.com/5h3p
