listings indexing updates were fixed. German listings indexes were
current as of 17 Jul 13:35MESZ. Then at 13:46PT on 17 Jul eBay
reported the eBay home page was intermittently unavailable. The
problems were fixed by 15:57 PT. As always with any site problems,

Yahoo Auctions Basic site information http://www.auctionguild.com
Go to OAI Site Basic Details from left side toolbar.
Yahoo has so far defeated TAG in determining a method to count
how many auctions are currently listed on the site. Starting today
we are using a formula that will act as a comparison index based
on tracking a particular search pattern. The assumption we
are using is that tonight Yahoo has 1.95 million auctions listed.
This will allow us to at least track if auctions are increasing,
decreasing or stable. If Yahoo or any one else would like to
correct this assumption with more accurate and verifiable
information, we would welcome it. http://auctions.yahoo.com/
