Like an intimidated schoolyard nerd Google canceled the party but the money isn't coming back. As any good geek would Google got their revenge cold by reducing or removing eBay's vital organic search results. Stay tuned to see who loves who the least in this mash-up gone awry. Google is not the only target of eBay's savvy moves of late... Amazon's bottom line is next. Having seen what 'Third Party Sales' did for Amazon's profit sheet the last few quarters, eBay management has now decided to nourish eBay Store's. eBay sellers, especially store owners are a sales hungry mob of third party sellers the likes of which Amazon cannot draw upon. With proper traffic management and attention to the stores that excel, eBay Stores will win the day for eBay and deprive Amazon of 'Third Party Sales' this fall. Wall Street will take notice soon enough, but as a programmer living full-time off my eBay Store (TECKWAVE) I'm liking it right now!"
