eBay doesn’t show buyers how many people are watching an item. But now eSeller Street has access to the number of watchers for most listings. It’s a great way to see what people find interesting – fast.

A researcher from Thailand looked these up and I checked out what they saw. I just love these gorgeous silver pendants!

I’m surprised to see what’s popular on eBay in the Business and Industrial category. The most watched items by FAR are tractors on both (US) and (UK). Ebay must be a major clearing house for farm equipment. I wonder if tractor auctions are seasonal and this is the peak.

The Everything Else category is very weird. There are a lot of ‘get rich without working’ e-books for sale. Some with 60,000 watchers. I guess it’s some kind of marketing scheme and I don’t really get what’s going on with these.
