What I found was that eBay listings seem to be ok, but all stores in either Store format were noted as being mobile unfriendly. That really shocked me as I would have thought with all the talk from eBay that they would have this addressed, especially with all the money sellers pay for Store sites. Now I know why my eBay Store traffic is about dead.
Also, I found some odd results looking in Google organic search for my listings. I could not find any of my active 30 day, GTC or auction listings in Google organic search, even when I fully qualifier the exact title I had in the listing.
What I did find were old eBay listings of mine that had ended, but when I clicked on them, they say that this listing ended and here is another similar item, and it takes the person to one of my competitor's listings.
This is absolutely ridiculous that they would do this when I have the same item listing that was sold. And it's like Google is not scanning new eBay listings anymore as none (I repeat NONE) of my active eBay listings are in search. Same goes with google shopping, I see no eBay listings in shopping but I see a ton of them for Bonanza, Etsy, and even eCrater (among others)...
No wonder a lot of eBay sellers are experiencing the worse sales volumes in history! I have been selling on eBay for over 10 years now, and 2014 was my worst year in history, even lower than my initial year when we only sold for the last 8 months of the year and were a rookie at selling. We grew every year through 2012 when the bottom fell out in June 2012, and it's been downhill ever since with annual sales declines of 20-25% each of the last 3 years....
Can you question eBay about search engine visibility and what they are doing to help the sellers? Google is the #1 place people go to find products, and not having our items in the search is unacceptable in my eyes.
Seems like they are constantly changing things that go against the sellers and don't they realize that they would increase their volume if they did things that would be of benefit to their selling customers in the community.
