Hi, I like the way the store has where you can look at my current eBay listings. I would like to have that and the same thing separately for my onlineauctions.com listings and a separate link for eCrater lisitngs. Is there a way to do this or is it one or the other? Thanks!

You can use Google search to make an aggregated search of all the places you sell and put it on your website.

I would grade this at an easy to medium level complicated thing to do, depending on whether you understand HTML code. You will also have to sign up for a Google account - which is free and you'll have to do anyway if you want to use any of their webproducts like adwords, google products, etc.

Google Custom Search

What you do is set up your search to add in your sites. There are filters available so that people can select which site to search from - like auctions or Buy it Now. First you add the sites followed by an asterik - like http://yourstore.ecrater.com/* That will search all pages in your store. You'll see when you do it.

If you want, visit MY Websiteand you can try the search and see - i didn't add my auctions because I'm still fixing them up on OLA, but it will search both of my ecrater stores and has been working very well.

I also made a much larger aggregated search of non-ebay auctions and stores in case you'd like to try that out. If you want me to add your website, let me know, but I do not include ebay stores or auctions.


There are also widgets you can get from Ebay to display a scrollling box of your products on your website. I don't know if OLA has this - I'm new to them yet - But I know that Ecrater has it - you will see it on my website.

Good luck - if you need any help with the search, let me know.

If onlineauction and ecrater can provide you with an rss or xml feed of your listings then you can do it.
