eBay is one of the best
known Internet companies. It provides an online auction
platform where normal people and businesses buy and sell almost
any imaginable product or service.
The site was created in
1995 by Pierre Omidyar and commenced it’s services under the
name AuctionWeb. The first product sold was a broken
laser pointer for $15. The buyer was a collector of broken
laser pointers and was happy with his purchase.
following years eBay developed into what it is now, a multi
million dollar company and the undisputed market leader for
online auctions. eBay has become almost the synonym for selling
goods online. It is one of the most visited sites on the net
with about 150 million registered users. There are 12 million
auctions running all the time.

running but for longer. That means using eBay
with it’s millions of daily visitors as a traffic
source to one’s own website.

website (quite similar to Google
These are context sensitive small ads – per eBay
sensitive to what the user is actually shopping
for - showing eBay auctions including the current
bid price. The publisher can make money every
time a user clicks on one of the ads and then
buys the auction article.

displayed on publisher websites.
