Does anyone know who is doing ebay sponsored links now? At one point AMP keywords had banners, but they have been gone for a year now. Now I am seeing ads show up on the bottom of searches that return no results. They look like google ads, but when I try to add ebay under my google campaign, they say they are not an affiliate.

I am a little lost here. Any help?

I'm pretty sure eBay signed a deal with Yahoo about 6 months ago. Can anyone confirm this?

Here's an article from a few days ago that mentions the relationship...

If SmartAds are a success, Yahoo also could use them to bolster two other key display-ad initiatives: the Right Media ad exchange it recently acquired and a budding business providing display ads to partner sites such as eBay Inc.

From the UK looking at Ebay UK I can see Google ads on there. Looks like they come under search partners.
