I have heard of some ebay sellers who put in ads on there ebay auctions and generate revenue that way. Obviously you would need to have alot of auctions, or at least auctions with a great number of hits. Does anyone have any experience using this technique? I dont suppose you can ad google ad words to your auctions or anything like that?

Do you mean outside ads -if so you can get suspended! I tried using Clickbank links in ads on Ebay and after 7 days the auctions started getting deleted - but on the flip side I made $400 in commission from the sales!

No I dont think you can add Adsense to your auctions. If you notice at the bottom of any search page on Ebay, there are Adsense Ads displayed buy Ebay will get the revenue.

There is another way....thats to sign up as an Ebay affiliate, then look on Craigslist for someone whos after a car and how much, search on ebay and use the Ebay Affiliate tools to generate an URL, then email that URL to the people on CL looking for the car? They buy through your link, you make 20% of purchase price - its something like that anyway.

Thanks for the reply. I'm sure I have read in a book about people who have put ads in there ebay auctions, and generated revenue that way. Or perhaps is this no longer allowed? It wouldn't surprise me if eBay stopped allowing that. More and more eBay are trying to protect their interests and limit the ability for sellers to promote their own business.

Also another option is to have a website selling products with Adsense ads on it, then ufeature it on your About Me page - this will get indexed real quick by Google because of the power of Ebay. And it does bring large traffic.
