Watchers/Views  

Years and years ago, some site whose name I forget, hosted our counters for free. We could visit that site and see a chart of all our auctions with the number of visits to each one.

When that site became fee-based, I dropped out. Eventually, AW included an option to add free counters (Lister window, Advanced tab, Misc Options). All my auctions have hidden counters, no problem there.

What's been bothering me for a few years is that I can't see all my counters at once -- I have to visit each auction, and that's very slow. I think Judy recommended some site that was free at the beginning but later became subscription only. I tried it, but it provided an overwhelming amount of data, far too much for my needs.

I've asked an eBay Forum how I can see a chart of all my counters and was told to just refresh the Watchers/Views column in My eBay, Active Selling tab. But I don't have that column, and it's not available in the Customize window. I have a column titled Watchers, but not Watchers/Views, and there is no Refresh button. Is this because I'm using AW to list, and the folks who use eBay's listing program have that Watchers/Views column??

And if that's the case, is there a way (free!) to see all our counters at once?

Sue,

Hummm, I have a "Viewers/Watchers" column in the new "My eBay" ... There is a refresh utility which when clicked displays all current data......

I wonder where your column is at... Let me see if i can find how it is added and get back to you.

Sue,

Click on the "Edit" on the upper right hand header.
Then choose "Customize"
Select ""Choose your own"

In the "Interest level" there is a "Watchers" option. Checkmark that box and apply the changes.

See if that works.

Hi Judy,

I think I already have it set up the way you indicate.

I just don't seem to have the Viewers option.

Sue,

WOW! Let me look into it further. I have the Viewers/Watchers. The two are together with the same refresh icon as is on the IE7 explorer address bar.

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: bluepennylady]  

My DSR scores are 5.0, 4.99, 4.99, and 4.84, Search standing Raised, but I'm FAILING in Policy Compliance (just bad to the bone, I guess -- long story, but basically it was two listings for cap guns and toy airline pilot wings). Do you suppose I'm being restricted from seeing my counter stats? Would they do that??

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: tictictic_OnEbay]  

Sue,

I wonder if the "Viewer/Watcher" like is on my Active page is a "Beta" testing? You know they said they would be adding improvements and testing improvements. I have had other beta things on my pages before without anyone saying anything to me about it.

I wonder if Garry and Marty's Active selling pages have the "Viewer/Watcher" capability..?

Off to find out!

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: bluepennylady]  

Hey guys!
My active page just has watchers. Would like to have Viewers.
I'll poke around and see if I can find it though.

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: bluepennylady]  

There it is!!

I can't believe I don't have that Views/Watchers column with the little Refresh arrows. Do you suppose it's only available to Power Sellers? Do you subscribe to some extra service?

I have two Alerts because I listed cap guns without the orange plastic inserts in the barrels and a kid's pilot pin without noting is was over 20 years old (did say it was vintage). I had no idea about either of these relatively recent restrictions, and both Lots had been listed previously with no warnings. I scrounged around in the garage for anything orange that would fit in the gun barrels, relisted, sold, shipped. And I took the stupid pin out in the driveway and ground it to dust under my heel. Unfortunately, I can't grind eBay's watchdogs under my heel. Well, that's all totally off-topic unless it really could be the reason I'm not getting the Views column.

I hope other members (especially non-Power Sellers) of this forum will let me know if they have the Views/Watchers column in their My eBay.

Sue
