Yahoo! and eBay Form Strategic Partnership

Yahoo! users will be able to buy goods using Paypal. This is good for eBay but not unique, other internet retailers, like newegg.com already allow this.

“Yahoo! will become the exclusive third-party provider of all graphical advertisements throughout the eBay.com site” states the press release. That is significant.

I would like to learn more about exactly what this statement means, “Yahoo! and eBay have also agreed to collaborate on ways to increase the quality and comprehensiveness of Yahoo! Web search results for eBay.com and to provide Yahoo! search users with more up-to-date listings from the millions of products on the eBay.com marketplace, with the goal to create a better search experience by enabling shoppers to more easily find relevant eBay listings.” I don’t necessarily want eBay results in each search result. I will reserve judgment on this issue until I see how it’s actually implemented. It should be interesting to see how this develops.
