ebay featuring custom RSS search feeds

Posted by joy

Via a posting on WebmasterWorld, ebay is featuring custom RSS search feeds. So, in theory, you’ll be able to track listings on ebay via RSS.

A poster on WebmasterWorld pointed out that this new feed functionality will probably encourage more “made for AdSense” sites, presumably since RSS is easier to display on a Web page than a full blown API. However, you would think that ebay would have some sort of non-commercial TOS tied to the RSS feed.

I’m wondering if this development from ebay will encourage other online retailers to feature RSS product feeds for individual use.
