Outstanding paper on how sellers manipulate eBay pulse to gain watchers – Kekoa64 update
December 1st, 2007 by estreet

Recall my post on Kekoa64, the eBay seller of e-books on making $100 per hour. I could not figure out how they got 65K watchers on a Buy-It-Now.

This is one of the best, and most well-written papers, on eBay I have ever come across. http://www.oktshun.com/ebooks/Making_the_Pulse_Pages.pdf It’s about how eBay sellers get watchers and manipulate the eBay pulse page.

There are diagrams of tactics and strategies worthy of an MBA course. I don’t recommend duping buyers with these techniques (unless you are a narcissistic, self-centered thug that could rob their mother and sleep well at night). Kudos to mystery person, The Puls8r, for enlightening us – whoever they are.

Here’s a couple of very interesting discussions on kekoa64 FBI scam alert and shartey’s blog.

Wow! That was the most interesting read on ebay I’ve had in months, if not all year. Thank you for putting the info on “The Pulse” together. After reading the ebook from Puls8r, you really get upset by these tactics. I was halfway throught the ebook when I had the “ah-ha” moment. I’ve always wondered how sellers make any money on penny ebooks. Now I know. They place links of other websites that direct traffic for affiliate programs. What a system! I feel like I received some unofficial ebay university training today. Thanks again for all your wonderful posts.
