I agree mrguy, don't use ebay's metrics as any sign of a market wide problem, ebay has just set off a firestorm of internal problems all on their own. I'd be very surprised if ebay doesn't lose significant traffic moving forward, you don't treat affiliates as poorly as they have at a time when you need strong holiday earnings. I spoke with a few of their bigger jilted affiliates and they are planning a migration over to Amazon so eBay's bust might be a boon to Amazon. eBay stock fell 6% and is below $60. Amazon is cruising at $300 and didn't suffer the same decline. eBay is pointing at the economy for their problems but nobody else is.
