eBay UK have made another announcement about tests for changes to search results on the site. Beginning this week, until the beginning of September, 2% of users will be shown the new pages, which are designed to return more items for each search, and at the same time, to return only relevent results.
From the example given, “size 12 red shoes”, it seems that item specifics may be being looked at as well as just titles, so sellers should be even keener to keep those fully filled out. What’s not quite clear, however, is how these tests relate to the tests already announced at the beginning of July, which we think we’ve already seen.
If you’re one of the lucky ones to see the new results, please grab us a screen shot and mail it over (remove REMOVE): we’d love to see what’s in store!
