    Okay that's great but how are you going to advertise your presents on ebid to the rest of the 7 billion people on the planet that haven't brought from you on greed bay? Also links 2 and 3 on this are broken and do not take you to your listings so would fix these first.

    Do you use social media? eg facebook,twitter,google plus,and pinterest? This is an easy way for you to advertise your ebid items to millions of people with very lite effort. If you look at each of your listings the top right hand side has all the social media logo chick one log in to you social media and the listing is the posted there easy.
    If you don't have social media then it only takes a couple of minute to set up an account with most of them. If you only want to use one of the social media site just to advertise you ebid stock and listings then try and set it up in the same name as the store you want to promote from here eg. My stores name is Hush's Comic book world so have set up a pinterest page with that name on and post my items to that. A lot of people think that there is not point in using social media for you listing but you will be surprised how many people see listing from just this.

    The next thing I have noticed having a quick look at your listings is you have set them up in a bad format for this site. I know this site is advertise as an auction site but auctions very rarely work on here unless it is a charity auction. Greed bay has so much more traffic it now being a household name that auctions work well there but here the traffic is a lot less (unless you drive your own here) so you are very rarely going to get a bidding war for you items in an auction. Also the way you have listed your items the listings over time will gradually move to the bottom of search's as more and more items with newer item numbers appear on the site. So unless someone types in to a search bar the exact tittle you have listed up your item as there is less chance of it being seen. The next worse way to list items is the run until sold option the same thing happens to them.

    If you look a mine and a lot of the old heads here's listing you will see that they are set up as something called auto re-posts this means that they will run for a set amount of days then end and start again. Mine run for 10 days with 10 re-posts this means that my listings will highlight in the newly listed section on the front page of the site once every ten days and will also appear in the closing soon section on the front page once every ten days. Also every time the item is relisted it will get a new auction number and will appear higher in the searches against the run until sold items and the stagnant auctions like the ones you have listed. The only down side to this is you have to re-list your items every one hundred days but that only take 2 minutes to do.

    Next thing are your items showing in google searches? have you checked? and I don't mean by just copying and pasting your tittle in to google. Have just done this to your Australian Antarctic Territory Stamps 1973 set of 12 - SG.23/34 - 2 sets UMM

    and this only brings up your store tenth on the first page and not the item but one of you stores. Also you have listed the same Item in greed bay and with exactly the same tittle and all there links appear first. The tittle doesn't appear in google shopping section and or any other kind of variation of this tittle so it doesn't look like your listings are google ready which again is stunting your growth.
    This is where things get a little bit more complicated but can work for your item both hear and on greed bay. First thing I would do is look at your meta keywords you have for your store to find this go to your my ebid,click on my ebid stores, there will appear a drop down bar select the store you want to look at. This will bring up all the background details of your store. In section 2 of this at the bottom will be a grid in each on of these boxes you can put a word (one per box) these will help search engines drive traffic to you listings. What to put in the boxes is up to you but think of how people would search for your Items in a search engine. If i use myself as example I would put things like Comics,Book's,Marvel,DC,batman etc etc you get the idea. The more of these boxes you can fill with words that people would use in searches the better.

    Next your listing themselves are good apart from the titles. don't use the abbreviations at the end this confuses google and other search engines. There is no point putting in the title things like near mint brand new with tags or abbreviations of such these would be better placed in the first 2 lines of the auction also where possible use a different description from the title in the first 2 lines of the listing this will also help with searches.
    The last thing for now would be that if you item does not have a bar code make sure you fill out the bar code box on the listing as EXEMPT in caps can't remember why but this also helps put the listing in google and other search engines and if it does have a bar code then make sure you add this.

    Hope some of this makes sense and helps feel free to pm me if you require any more help with anything above.
