I have had only 1 looker at my auctions today. Has anyone else noticed the cessation of lookers???? Is something up with Ebay that I havent heard about? I was getting a ton of lookers yesterday. Needless to say...no sales either.

I've had a big fat goose-egg since 9:00 last night. I only have two listings, but this is a long dry spell even for little ol' me.

I'm not sure if it's something with the internet connection in this building, but I was trying to look at ebay art and timed out several times yesterday. Today I could get through but only after a long time. The problem was only with the ebay site for me.

Hi Beverly
No, not a lot going on lately. I haven't sold a thing in a week on ebay, which is pretty discouraging. Fortunately, I got paid in advance for a nice commission which should get me thru the month, ...but then what? :eek:
The worse thing about being so poor is not being able to take advantage of some of the wonderful offerings you have up there now. I don't know which I like best, "Jaded" or "Lily's Crow" ! It would be a hard choice - they are both stunning. Well, let's hope things pick up soon so I can at least stay plugged in and on a really good day get some groceries. L :)

Really NOT great :( About 20 between 3 non-FPs, 2 of which are ending in a few hours, and no bids on any :(

About 10 or so on my FP'd marbles - made a mistake with the title (marble not marbles) and had a bid so couldn't change it :rolleyes: Total hits there is about 170 with 3 days left (10 day auction).

Very frustrated :confused:

I have stopped looking at looks........

Andale is very temperamental.

I now only look to see if I have any bids.

I may look again at Ebid and Ioffer as they have free listings.

It's true Mary I never could count on Andale the counter kept getting stuck! No really!

EBAY now has the Omniture service for those with storefronts...go to traffic reporting in manage your store. It's very sensitive to hits!

But like the rest of you suddenly things are very quiet. I was shocked the other morning when I opened up...no views from midnight to 6am...usually there's someone! And again today you'd think it's a library around here.

I think yesterday I had 2 views and today about 2 to 3 views. I notice my counter spikes up whenever I post here, lol, so I'm pretty sure most of my views are coming from WC. eBay seems to be really slow.

I had email an eBay artist (don't remember her name *yikes*) who consistently has 500+ views and ask how she got so many views. Her answer to me was time and consistency : /

Oh well, I hope views pick up soon....better yet BIDS, lol.

It could be the mass exodus from ebay. Many are going elsewhere. A lot of members are in the ebay forums fighting over the price rises.

I havn't logged in today.

The last 3 days for me have been very bleak in terms of views.

I thought views were supposed to pick up in mid-January.

I guess things are different every year.

I was going to post about this last night.

But then I remembered what I had said here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3050182&postcount=13) :rolleyes: :D

Quite bad for me also, few hits and low sales amounts. Ebay connection was also timing off a lot today.

Basically my andale count showed 4 views per listing...I'll have to check omniture.

Anyone have trouble with their pics on the first page of the listing?

I think we're seeing a slow recovery from the holidays this year because so many people made generous donations to tsunami funds. Either directly, or by buying charity items on eBay. My non-FPed tsunami auction got a ton of hits and sold for more than three times as much as it did the first time around (NPB), while my other listings were pretty much ignored.

That could a good reason. With Ebay being sporadic....coming off Xmas.....getting ready for Tax time.....and people giving to charity. This is a good time to go on vacation! *LOL*

.....getting ready for Tax time.........

Tell me you really don't believe this.
:(

The thought of views being low from now until April is a bit unbearable for me.
LOL

I refuse to think that folk are getting ready for tax time now!

:wink2:
