Searchers from Google Dead-ended on eBay
It seems to me that there was a strained relationship with Google search and eBay quite recently. Nevertheless, I noticed that the items I have listed on eBay are now beginning to appear in Google Search.
The problem is that eBay is dropping the ball on connecting the Google Search with the Seller's Active Listings, particularly as it applies to a connection between eBay collections and the seller's active listings.
I find my item on Google Search Images. I click on it. It brings me to my collection where the item is housed. At the bottom of the page it says 21 listings for my seller account. When I click on the "21 items for sale", my eBay seller name populates the search bar. Underneath that it says "0 listings", therefore the searcher will not see what I have listed for sale on eBay.
Although a Top Rate Seller, my business is tiny. eBay gives me no exposure (even when I pay to list in 2 categories I still have items that don't show up in search at all!).
It is so frustrating to think that the few hits that I might garner from a Google Search are also not be properly presented by eBay. I have called eBay about this missing link but do not feel that they will do anything about it.
Thank you for anything that you can do to look into this and to find out why eBay would be willing to throw away any benefits to Google Search/eBay Collections/Active Items for Sale.
Sincerely and with appreciation for all that you do,
