ebay has started a new blog, the eBay stories blog, and one of it’s new coolest ideas, In My Opinion, is the weekly search trends post. Now, the blog is new so I hope they continue this tradition but I think this could be a great resource for eCommerce sellers, and eBay sellers in particular. Weekly Search Trends – check it out!
Top Search Trends: Week ending Friday August 5, 2011
Topping our trending search terms this week were two baseball giveaways: the Roberto Alomar bobblehead, and the Frank Thomas statue. The commemorative bobblehead was given out at a Toronto Blue Jays game on July 31st, to the first 20,000 people arriving at the game. Before the game started, there was a ceremony celebrating Alomar’s accomplishments with the club and his No. 12 jersey was retired. On the same day, former Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas’ accomplishments were celebrated with the unveiling of a life-size statue in the outfield concourse. The first 20,000 fans at that game received a smaller version of the statue as a giveaway. It seems the folks who couldn’t attend the game went directly to eBay to see if they could get their hands on one!
