except folks at the level of Ebay ... but you never know.
I've been running a shop on ebay for almost 7 years now...lately sales are down to almost nothing except for some "out of the blue" sales to countries I'm not sure i even knew existed. Ebay's traffic like everyone else's is greatly influenced by Google updates. And the recent update is sending (ebay too) junk traffic and this is killing many sellers there and ebay as a whole (slowly but surly).
Google has almost complete control over the flow of traffic on the web. When they sneeze the entire web catch a cold....I've seen it on ebay, I've seen it on my content web sites, I've seen it on my affiliate web sites, I've seen it on my business clients web sites.....Google has the entire web by the balls (sorry for the french) and its about time something is done about that.
