    Who doesn't know about ebay?

    I wouldn't bother to click on an add, unless I wanted to see ebay paying out more for advertising. Just go to their homepage and check out what they have.

    I've always assumed that it is an affiliate rather than eBay itself.

    Also, although people know about ebay, it's not always the first place they look to buy something. So if they type what they're looking for into google, and an eBay ad comes up, then they might think "Oh yeah, I'd not thought of looking there".

    There seems to be a lot of people buying up for kelkoo and other comparison engines too... although I would have thought the payout would be too low to risk what is essentially some keywork arbitrage there. But what do I know? :)


    Cheers

    I think the people doing this just upload a dictionary to their adwords accounts and pay little to nothing per click for it ;) Drives me crazy.. :eek:
