Best Match tool and Best of eBay

Filed under: eBay — estreet @ 7:17 pm

Best” is the new buzzword on eBay.

The new game in cybertown is the Best Match. eBay now applies a secret formula to determine which listings are shown first in the search results. It’s a new opportunity for gamers. Try it out here:
eBay Best Match tool has a similar ranking called “interestingness”. The top 500 are shown on Flickr’s Explore page. Users are very proud of their photos that make Explorer. FYI – My husband made #1 once with a photo of a pair of White-tailed does.

Check out a digg-like page where users can vote for the best listings on eBay. Best of eBay Thanks for pointing this out, Jake!

  1. You can type certain key words to trick the best match filter and your listings will appear higher. For example, type NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW NEW Wii + 5 games.
