      You could drive traffic to your website by listing your products on eBay. However, you should make sure that you do not violate any eBay rules in this process.

      Some of the popular ways of driving traffic to your website using eBay are:

      1. Include your website URL in the “About Me” page of eBay:
      Many people like to check the profile of the seller before buying the product. So, if you have your website’s link in the “about me” page, you could advertise your website free of cost. It is also likely that if a buyer is not able to win your auction, he or she might buy products from your website.

      2. Your eBay ID should be similar to your website’s URL:
      If your eBay user ID is identical to your website’s URL, then you could popularize your website easily. For example, if the domain name of your website is flowerboutique.com, then you could choose Flowerboutique as your eBay user ID. However, you could benefit from this marketing strategy only if you have a good reputation on eBay.

      3. Host the pictures of the products on your website:
      When you host pictures of the items, which you have listed on eBay, on your website, then the visitors would be able to see the domain name of your website while they wait for the pictures to load.

      4. Include the URL of your website in your “thank you” e-mails:
      After a sale is completed, send a “thank you” note to your customer. In this e-mail, include the link of your website. The customers, who had a great shopping experience with you, will definitely like to check your website to find out what is in store for them.

      5. Use e-mail address that is identical to your website’s URL:
      eBay allows you to add one e-mail address in your listings. It’s best to use an e-mail address that’s very similar to your website’s URL. Let me continue with the above given example; if your website’s domain name is flowerboutique.com, your e-mail address could be something like “sales@flowerboutique.com” or “customerservice@flowerboutique.com” or “flowerboutique@gmail.com.”

      Many retailers and wholesalers auction on eBay not just to make money by selling items but also to promote their own website. It has become really essential for an e-commerce store to be on the top of search engine results. But it is easier said than done. There are so many websites on a given topic or product that getting your website to appear on the top of search engines is very difficult.

      If you could include the backlinks of your website on sites like eBay that draw maximum traffic and generates maximum searches on the Internet, your website could attract a lot of targeted traffic.

      If you want to drive traffic to your website through eBay, you should ensure that you sell good quality products and provide excellent customer service to your eBay buyers. Otherwise, your website will gain only negative publicity.

      When you list items on eBay, you post some pictures of those items. You could either upload the pictures on the eBay server or you could host them on your website. When you host pictures on your server, the search engine spiders are able to reach your website through the links in your eBay listings. This helps your web pages to rank high on search engines.

      Pictures take some time to load. So, when people click on pictures, they might have to wait for sometime when they could see the picture loading from the website. This is a great way to advertise your website free of cost.

      I’m not quite sure of this. I think it’s against eBay policy, but many sellers and buyers do this.

      No, you can’t include the links of your website in feedback comments. This is against eBay policy. For more details, please visit All about Feedback policies

      Will eBay charge any commission on the sales and traffic that I get through its website?
