Shops links: eBay giveth, eBay taketh away

No primary category set

new search results screen shot We were celebrating earlier this week that the Shops’ hub link has been added to the eBay UK header, but it seems the fight to get Shops’ links back where they belong (i.e. in buyers’ faces) isn’t over yet.

eBay announced at the beginning of the month that they’d be testing some new ways of displaying search results. One of the lucky 5% of members selected to see the new version was Martin from The Whirlpool Bath Shop, who was searching for his own items on eBay, and got taken to this page automatically. Conspicuous by its absence from the left hand side bar is the block of four featured shops.

As there is a huge white space just begging for a bit of content, it would be nice to know that this is just an oversight during the development process, and that in the final version, whatever it may be, the links will be restored.
