|WSJ: eBay looking for allies against Google :: AO : eBay should go into competition with AdSense. They've got a huge inventory of listings. They could charge people who post on eBay a premium to have their listing added to the Ad Inventory. They then sell Ads to publishers/Bloggers in the same way as the AdSense program and use Paypal to pay them.|
Look at the virtuous circle here.
- Every Ad is also an Ad for eBay.
- eBay listers get wider exposure.
- publishers get real Ads instead of "Get iPods on eBay".
- Paypal gets another boost.
The trick is to solve the problem of getting the context right. Perhaps they should actually team up with Technorati and use tags to solve the context problem.
 When is eBay going to transition from fixed categories to tags?
