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

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: moonstruck22]  

Marty,

Thanks for checking.. I am heading home but I am going to dig around later tonight and see what is up with that!

I love the Viewer/Watcher! It is great. But now I am wondering just who that option is available for....

Now to get out my Sherlock Holmes hat and magnifying glass

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: bluepennylady]  

I heard from one other person on this topic on another forum, and her My eBay does have the Views/Watchers column, but she also is a Power Seller.

Well, let me know what you find out. Thanks a bunch!

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: tictictic_OnEbay]  

Well, I found it I have it too.
Pretty cool feature.
So it is not just for Power Sellers 'cuz I ain't one YET!

Sue, it is on the NEW My eBay Active page. If that helps.

I was first looking on the 'old' active and only had watchers.

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: moonstruck22]  

Hi Marty!

Thanks for confirming non-Power Sellers have the Views column, but I don't!!!

I'm using the new, slow and balky My eBay page (I didn't think there was even an option to use the old page); I'm looking at the Active tab, but I just don't have the Views column, nowhere, no how.

I'll email Support.

Sue

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: tictictic_OnEbay]  

Sue,
I am going to try to lead you around the way that I went.
I now back tracked to see how it showed up.
You know I DID NOT have it at first.
So lets try:

I went to the top right of any eBay page and clicked on , My eBay, Summary.
Then, on your Summary page way down on the left corner, I have a clickable link, "View My eBay Selling" click on that.
That brings up a page, where it still shows ONLY watchers,
Go to the Active under the "Sell" box on the left hand side about halfway up the page and click "Active"
When that page loads you should have the Viewers/Watch column and the refresh icon. Mine didn't show any viewers until you activate the refresh click then viola!!
Then up towards the right top you are able to sort by viewers too! Which I thought was pretty neat.
I hope this leads you to what you are looking for.
If not let us know we will try to get you there again.

Good luck!

I don't have anything called that, especially not down in the lower-left corner -- do have, under Summary on the left, Sell, then under that, All Selling, so that's what I'm on.

"That brings up a page, where it still shows ONLY watchers,
Go to the Active under the "Sell" box on the left hand side about halfway up the page and click 'Active'"

Ok, that's what My eBay page is set to default to, so I'm there.

"When that page loads you should have the Viewers/Watch column and the refresh icon."

Nope. I swear it's not there.

"Mine didn't show any viewers until you activate the refresh click then viola!!"

Marty, you are so sweet. You should be a life coach or something.

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: tictictic_OnEbay]  

Sue,
Try this I think maybe this is the key.

Where you are under All Selling, click on the"Active",
On your screenshot where it says "Active (87)" Click that and see if it takes you to the "Active Selling" screen.
Then let me know what you see, got my fingers crossed!

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: tictictic_OnEbay]  

Sue,

I noticed the hiearchy in the last screen shot. Your hiearchy is "Home | My eBay | Summary"

My hiearchy is " Home | My eBay | Sell | Active Selling"

Try changing the default page to Active selling. Move the Active selling where it is not inside the Summary page....

Instead expand the 'Sell" link and then access "Active" from that link and see if you have the Viewers/Watchers refresh button.

If I access Active from the Summary page, I only have Watchers too.

Just to be picky here (cuz some of these things require great pickiness), that green bar in my screenshot says Active Selling (87), not Active (87), but anyway, it's not clickable. And I doubt it has anything to do with my having turned it green from the default yellow.

"Then let me know what you see, got my fingers crossed!"

Sorry, nothing to report. Uncross your fingers and go get a beer or a popsicle or something. I'm either a total dolt (probably), or there's some glitch. I wrote to support, but I won't hear back until next week. I'll let you know. Thanks again. I really appreciate your troubleshooting.

Sue

P.S. Don't know if this is relevant, but when I click the button for Send us your comments, the address is myebaybeta@.... Is everyone still on the beta version of the new My eBay?

Re: Watchers/Views new [re: tictictic_OnEbay]  

Sue,

Let me see if I maybe provide better details.

The "Sell" link on the left hand navigation is where you need to click open. When you click the "Sell" it expands to display all the sell activity options you have.

If you click the "Active" in that "Sell"' you will have the viewer/watcher option.

Does that help?

Judy,
You got tagged because I was behind that big tree!
And I think the rules used to be that there are no tag backs!

So you are still it, and I am home free!

Hopefully we got Sue fixed up in the process of us playing games!
