eBay, Amazon, Craig’s List, Ina Steiner and the truth.

I’m not going to say Ina Steiner is full of crap, that would be unfair. According to the charts posted on her AB blog, eBay has been losing rank for unique visitor traffic in the U.S.A. She says Amazon is receiving more traffic and that Craig’s List (a company partially owned by eBay) is on track to surpass eBay as well.

Somehow she neglects to mention that on the global scale, eBay is still dominating both Amazon and Craig’s List (80 million vs 67 million and 59 million). eBay is actually growing and leaving Amazon and Craig’s List behind. In the last month CL actually went down 1.52%. Have a look at the chart below:


eBay still king of unique traffic

In the 21st century, global is much more relevant than national. To be fair, both Ina’s chart and the chart I took from Compete.com mean very little. The money is made from conversion of traffic, not from how many people click a link and then close it without buying anything. I’m not even sure why CL gets mentioned. People go there looking to find prostitutes or haggle for their neighbor’s lawnmower.

I would love to learn how many of eBay’s 80 million visitors actually made purchases. The same with Amazon’s 67 million. I would love to compare the percent of buyers versus bouncers. I’d love to look at the percentage of return visitors.

I love Japanese Suspense!

What is Japanese Suspense?

It’s that unimaginative vagueness you’ll see in anime, dorama and movies from Japan. The most common will usually be two people commenting about a third person. They will say something along the lines of, “Doesn’t he remind you of that person?” They say “that person” to hold you in suspense because if they revealed “that person”‘s name to you at that stage of the movie, you would have a heart attack and die. Other times you’ll be watching an action scene and one character will suggest a secret move/technique and it will be referred to as “that technique.” For example: “Ryu, you’re getting your but kicked by Sakura! I think it’s time you unleash your TRUE power and use ‘that technique’ on her.” Once again, if you were to know the name of “that technique” 5 minutes before they reveal the name (you can be sure the user will give the name before or during use) you would die!

“That place” and “that time” are also frequently used. I love it! I certainly don’t want to die from the SHOKKU! Of having that whatever revealed to me too early…
