According to Micro Persuasion, eBay is to launch blogs, wikis, and new search tags, presumedly to help sellers sell their goods and market their wares, though right now it appears that anyone can sign up for a free eBay blog.
Auction giant eBay is preparing to integrate blog and wiki publishing tools into its selling platform, according to a report on Auctionbytes. eBay Blogs will enable sellers to more efficiently market their products. eBay Wikis meanwhile collect fact-based articles written and maintained by eBay Community members. Both tools will be launched at the eBay Live conference in Las Vegas June 13 – 15.
Curious about the blogging part, I checked it out and it seems that the eBay blogs will be run by Typepad, a kudo for them.
It appears that news about eBay blogs has spread, and the eBay sites with more information on this are up and down as they can’t handle the load. Hope they clean up their server issues before they open up the blogs. ;-)
