Reading AuctionBytes: From the Editor
You may have noticed a new icon appearing in eBay search results. eBay began testing its Top Rated seller badge as part of a new program announced late last month along with news of many other changes coming to the site in the fall. It turns out that the announcement included so many feature- and policy-changes, covering so many areas, that it's impossible to give the announcement an aggregate thumbs-up or thumbs-down.
We wanted to gauge the temperature of AuctionBytes readers concerning eBay's July 27th announcement of the "SR2" changes, including the Top Rated seller program, so we conducted a survey, asking respondents to rate the changes separately.
Over 1,100 readers took the survey, and I was impressed by the many hundreds of comments left by respondents for each of the survey's 14 sections. We published the results in AuctionBytes Newsflash last week, and I've included a wrap-up in today's issue to highlight the key changes. Be sure you understand them, and don't be taken by surprise in September and October when eBay begins rolling them out to the site. Some of the changes have the ability to make a big impact on your pocketbook, as well as your rankings in search results.
