Re: ______'s best match?
Best Match is eBay's default sort order for search results. The goal of Best Match is to increase sales and reduce bad buyer experiences, making sure that buyers are happier and more likely to return to eBay for future purchases.There are many factors used in Best Match. Some, like how relevant your item is to the buyer's search are outside of a your control. For example, if you're selling a prom dress and the buyer is looking for a power drill, you aren't going to be a match.
The idea behind best match is to have the search system reward seller behavior that eBay (and, in theory, the average eBay shopper) likes and to penalize behavior that eBay and its shoppers don't like. The best way to think about best match, therefore, is as a system that ranks the “good behavior” or “best practices” of all eBay sellers and their listings. Sellers and listings with high rankings are shown to buyers on the first page of shopping search results.One of the most obvious aspects of this tension is the way that Scorpios affect other people around them. If you haven’t noticed it yet, pay close attention to how others act around your Scorpio. He/she is the one at the bar with their arm around a complete stranger sharing a drink and talking of life, but at the same time they are evaluating and manipulating, drawing people into their inner circle quickly and efficiently.
